Its finally happening. :D Time to start shopping for drives, please share what you have or intend on getting. Lets find the deals! :D

Just sold my PS4 Pro to fund all the games coming this spring and hopefully PSVR soon but now there is also this beautiful news of external HDD support. Here are the two that have caught my interest. Should I pop down the money right now? Or are there better deals out there? Will they work? Please advise and thank you in advance. 

For the main external HDD (Films/games/music and OS back up) I'm looking at this 4TB (Maybe 5) Desktop Hard Drive with USB Hub for  €174.99.

With cross-platform compatibility, exceptional reliability and speed, you can back up just about everything.
