Here's a good list of external hard drives for PS4. If I was you I'd go for 2TB or more. 1TB will run out faster than you realize especially since we still have a ways to go this generation. Better to future proof now than regret it later. But if the 1TB is what you really want I believe they have a high performance 1TB external hard drive on the list. You might want to check that out.

When you get your external hard drive you can just transfer the games to the new hard drive. You don't have to re-download it. Here's an article that helps you setup your PS4 external hard drive. There is a section on how to transfer your games between hard drives.

I have the same exact external HDD.  Not sure if Its just mine, but I have all sorts of issues with games once I loaded them on the external.  Problems include frame rate stutter, sound cuttout and general lag. Has anyone else experienced this?

Odd, I haven't had any issues. I have the 2tb one. Have u tried transferring from external to the ps4s hard drive to see and then go back? I think some ppl were having issue after 4.55 update...so maybe it's a system thing.
