I'm tempted because who wouldn't like to have a massive hard drive in a PS4 instead of the laughably small default 500GB one. Only thing is that Nyko hardware is not the greatest quality and there is no info yet on drive performance in that enclosure. A product to keep an eye on though.

I upgraded mine to 2TB already and got a 500 GB external drive out of it as well.

Pretty easy, just get one of these and swap the drive with the PS4 drive.

Is it easy to copy your content over?

Just copy your saves and screenshots/video captures (if you care about them) to a USB thumbdrive and you're good to go.  That process could be a little more streamlined though, would be nice to have a "copy all saves" option, you kind of have to go game by game. 

The other thing is you'll need to redownload all your DCL/Games, also make sure to reset "this is my primary console" or whatever setting post HD swap.

Oh, I've already done that. The Nyko thing lets you use a drive larger than 2TB though.

The price difference between 3.5' and 2.5' drives are not that steep. And SSD drives are all 2.5 sized (which the console can use natively).

And does anyone need more than 2TB of console storage? Seriously, delete something.

When some of us were already deleting things less than a year into this consoles life cycle, and games are just going to get bigger, there's a need for more storage.

~500GB felt a bit constricting but 2TB feels like plenty for a while.  That's about 40 ~50 GB games of storage.

I put in 1TB and, as mentioned, was already having problems in the Fall of last year.
