    Using it for my PS4 games on PS5. It’s loading the games just about as fast as on internal storage (I assume due to speed limitations with PS4 titles on PS5). This is good though, so I can save internal storage for PS5 games.Read more

    Update….Tried to reformat again, no luck. I sadly just returned the drive and will be tring the Samsung t7 Touchless next. To begin, this drive was really fast on Xbox One X. Worked perfectly for about a week, however now the drive is overheating causing the xbox to either reject the drive completely until it cools off or has even Hard shut of my Xbox because I’m assuming here, some sort of surge or crash is coming through the usb port. I love the drive, but I’m not sure what to do. Return? Replace? I dont know if it’s just my drive that’s overheating.Read more

    The drive is very fast, running at speed up to the 1500 MB/s range when connected to a USB 3.2×2 20Gb/s port, and up to the 800 MB/s range when connected to a USB-C 3.2/3.1 10Gb/s port. On the other hand, if you are to connect the drive to a USB-A port, you are in very bad luck. Even with a USB-A 3.2/3.1 10Gb/s port, the drive only gives around 50 MB/s speed (which is consistent with product reviews on various tech websites), making it worse than some flash drives. This is probably due to a sub-par USB-C to USB-A cable from WD. Otherwise the drive is great. Small and light, runs a bit hot but manageable, and fast. Bottom line: you should only use the USB-A cable as a compatibility backup on older devices (your co-worker’s old desktop, for instance). If you only have USB-A ports or 5Gb/s USB-C on your PC, you are much better off with other products from Samsung, SanDisk, etc.Read more

    I finally got tired of deleting games to make room for newer ones on my PS5. Pick and choosing, downloading and deleting sucks so I decided to get this SSD. So far so good! This SSD is just as fast as the internal SSD that comes with the PS5. All the loading times for my games are pretty much the same with this SSD as the PS5. And if you’re worried about how to install it, do not worry about it, it’s that easy. Just plug it into your PS5 and go to your external storage under settings, a format button should pop up and that’s it. Simple and clean. Note: Only PS4 games are allowed to be stored on an External SSD.Read more

    Original review: Works well! Sturdy and small. Usb-C connection which is fantastic! Writing and loading games on it is instant. Huge gamer but don’t pay attention to all the technical. I play my game and can compete with no flaws. I found some software like Epic games will cause the drive to not shut off or eject when you need it too. So do not put epic games on the drive! Steam will also prevent it from ejecting or turning off. Make sure these programs are fully closed. So the drive is continuously running and takes a while to shut off. Update: So after a while I am starting to have problems with the drive. I use the USB-C in the same slot on my PC and I find it has become very picky when it wants to work. I thought after getting epic games off it had fixed the problem, but now steam and windows games are doing the same thing. I cannot always access the drive and an error code comes up, trying to repair the drive does not work or is not even an option. I tried to register my drive with WD, and they report “cannot find product” and when requesting support the chat service times out EVERY time or when using email support it is “unable to do so try again later” EVERY time. I have found it takes 20 mins to get the drive working every 5 times. Have to restart computer a few times. I have tried to get the drive to turn off when the system does but doesn’t work, repairing drive and SSD drive doesn’t work. It has crashed my laptop a few times as well. Sooooooo I’m not sure what to do):Read more

    I bought this to be a workhorse for moving files between systems and holding data. I had previously purchased the 2TB model (not SSD) and while it is solid, it was quite a bit slower. the SSD model is 10x faster than the older spindle drives. It’s also 1/2 the size. the outer casing is all metal, has rubber feet to keep it from slipping. The older 2TB model came with the legacy USB 3.x cable, while the new 500GB SSD unit comes with USB-C. If you’re not concerned about speed, you’ll get more space using the older 2.5″ spinning drive. If speed is an issue, the SSD is THE solution. Fast. Both drives came pre-formatted with EXFAT, and one minor glitch (both partitions were labeled “WD_BLACK” -so with both devices plugged into my Mac, it could not differentiate them. I ended up re-formatting and renaming the new one “WD_SSD”. One thing to note – the SSD does run warmer, but the metal casing seems to perform as heat-sink too. Very happy.Read more

    Great build quality love that it’s a metal case. 20G/s is super nice to have, I use this to store a few games that I play more frequently for faster load times on Xbox. Overall it’s been great I just wish it was a little less money.Read more
