This is the one I use. It doesn't have alot of room but I only have DayZ on the SSD and it runs 100x better. The price was really nice for me too since DayZ is really the only game I needed to improve. Also it was very simple to install, just plug into the USB port on the PlayStation and set it up on the system. The only downfall to this device is the connections from the SSD to the PS4 are a little loose so if it isn't kept still it usually disconnects and you have to reformat it, which only takes about 1 minute. Other than that I've been extremely happy.
It can be a bit tricky to find one that works best with Xbox because sometimes the formatting is wonky - and fair warning I have not used an external SSD with Xbox, this is really only experience using SSDs with my PC - both internal, external, and internal with an external case. Something like this one would be fine, but the problem you have to balance is storage versus speed. If you want to run one game really nicely, like Anthem, maybe a smaller hard drive is better. You'll only really need 100GB at most unless this game doubles or triples in size over the years. A search on Amazon for "External SSD Xbox" should lead to a handful of usable ones.
I don’t know what car you have, but in my Model X, I used to get “Write speed too slow” errors on my Samsung 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive. So I put this SSD and wired an L-Shaped USB plug through the built in dock connector. It’s amazing.
