Yes, via USB. Just keep in mind it will NOT run as fast as your internal drive… not even close. But I believe the PS5 prioritizes PS4 games onto the external drive so that your PS5 games get the benefit of speed.
PS5 games will not run on this hard drive at all, only PS4 games. Just wanted to clarify that. There are rumors of being able to store ps5 games eventually (so you don't have to constantly download them) but those are only rumors.

How does that even work? Can play 2 games at once? But if the hard drive is used heavily it would need a warranty or data recovery unless that's just a WASTE OF MONEY.

I had hooked mine to my PS4. When I got a PS5, all I had to do was switch it over and it installed all my games and all my info moved over.
How slow is it? Bearable?

Do you happen to know if this is thin enough to fit the internal hard drive bay for the PS4? I did this with a Seagate 2TB external drive with success, but I'm not sure how much thicker the 5GB drive would be.

If your other drive was a 2.5" drive, this will fit also. No difference in size because of larger storage.

2.5" drives can be taller/thicker and according to the second or third post of this thread, this one is thicker.

No, it will not fit any internal bay. This is a 13mm thick 2.5 drive.

Thanks for this. I did some poking around and looks like the maximum thickness for the PS4 hard drive bay is 9.5mm, so you are correct, this will not fit.

This. I don't believe it's even possible to store ANYTHING but PS4 Games on an external drive connected to a PS5 (at the moment at least). Future firmware could change that.

Also noteworthy, though: there have been TONS of people having repetitive PS5 crashes due to an external drive simply being connected. It's well documented if you browse the web. Sony claimed to be well aware of the issue, and said a firmware update will resolve said issues, but it's now March and I don't think anything has yet been done to correct it.

I bought this drive on sale for $65 about 2 years ago(it was the last item on shelf) I shucked it (it is thicker than usual 2.5" drive) and put it in my pc. No issues with it.
I need to catch this price so I can fill up my 32 bay

It depends on what you want to do with it. The speed is only a fraction of your internal drive, but it has a lot more storage space. Tradeoffs.

For Time Machine backups, general file storage, it's good. I use one that I partition for Time Machine and general storage. For video editing, I use an external 1TB SSD (or internal drive for quick small projects), then put my finished projects/libraries on an external HDD like this one.
