Engadget Review

The PlayStation 4 Pro is the most powerful home console yet, though you’ll need a 4K/HDR TV to truly take advantage of it. If you already have a PS4 and are stuck with a 1080p, you can wait before upgrade.

A forgettable product. It isn't bad, exactly, but also doesn't do anything particularly well. - Engadget
