The Playstation 4 has a function that allows you to copy all the data from one console to another, Since both are on the same local network. I tried to use this function to copy all the data from my Playstation 4 for my Playstation 4 For, but I got no success because the Playstation 4 I was with a 2 TB HD (HD Samsung Spinpoint ST2000LM003 2 TB), which I have already spoken here in Skooter Blog, with more than 1 TB busy, while Playstation 4 For was with the HD factory de1TB.
Thus, I chose not to import the installed games, but only the remaining data, because it has many sets of free offers monthly PSN Plus I played once and never again. On the other hand, It also meant that I had to re-download the PSN games I wanted and also the updates of games in physical media.
But I knew that with the PSN offer two games every month, and with the games I'm getting, sooner or later the 1 TB of HD Playstation 4 For also would end up full. So, decided to upgrade to 2 TB on it also.
As or HD Samsung Spinpoint ST2000LM003 2 TB remains steadfast and strong in Playstation 4, I decided to look for an equal. But apparently he already has been discontinued and has been replaced by the HDD Seagate Mobile 2TB ST2000LM007. In fact there should be other models between the two and probably other models after the ST2000LM007 also. Note that Seagate bought HDs Division of Samsung, so it makes sense that the successor to come out with the Seagate brand.
I don't have much luck with Seagate hard drives, There are several already dead. But they are almost all from the same series, so apparently there's best series and series more susceptible to failure. It is possible that this line inherited from Samsung is better than the old Seagate's own lines. Or not. Only time will tell…
The HDD Seagate Mobile 2TB ST2000LM007 arrived sealed, but unfortunately it is not a factory seal, and yes the own shop. What is this a delivery Peck written “DO NOT REMOVE WARRANTY” pasted in HD. I can't understand why these shops insist to be pasting baby kisses in things that have serial numbers. Why not simply write down the damn number? Need to violate packaging for paste baby kisses?
The worst part is that there's a lot of store that makes it up with processors. I've had PC that was with heating up very, I went to get the sink to verify that something was wrong and found there a peck of warranty, between the processor and heatsink, Sticky thermal paste. It is for these and others who thereafter I went riding my own PCs.
Despite the bloody Kiss, the HDD Seagate Mobile 2TB ST2000LM007 seemed really new, Maybe it was just tested. I forgot to check the amount of times it was turned on and the amount of hours that was bound in s.m.a.r.t data.
Check out some photos from the HDD Seagate Mobile 2TB ST2000LM007:
The installation of the HDD Seagate Mobile 2TB ST2000LM007 on the Playstation 4 For It was very quiet. To remove the drawer there is a single screw. And then there are more 4 screws securing the hard drive in the drawer.
The original HD is the HGST. Is 1 TB and 5400 RPM. Manufactured in 24 November 2016. I kept it fondly and today he's installed on my Playstation 3.
The HDD Seagate Mobile 2TB ST2000LM007 has thick slightly smaller than the original, so to keep some off the bottom tray, but this is no problem.
With the installation complete, I left for the installation of the operating system and restoring the backup I had made the original HD. Everything perfect.
After nearly 4 months of use, the HDD Seagate Mobile 2TB ST2000LM007 still working properly in Playstation 4 For, and still with plenty of free space, Although less than half ever. When I need more space will probably install a 4 TB external HD, which is supported by the Playstation firmware and it seems to be a good choice today.
