PS4Daily: "Test show that it's best to stick with the PS4′s default 500 GB Hard Drive. If you’re running out of space and want to upgrade to a larger drive, go with a 1TB Hybrid Drive."
you can only have a few games with 250gb not worth it i rather buy a TB for like $100
Yup. I went with the Seagate 1TB sshd. So far I have no issues
Does the ps4 support 2TB?? cuz I kinda regret only upgrading to 1TB... It will be good for now.. but I just know backing up and restoring is gonna be a pain in the ass.
No. 1.5GB at the most.
Yeah I'd rather go with a larger hard drive than what's available in terms of SSD.
The stock 500gb is enough for me. Even if I download everything, I usually play one game at a time and almost never come back once it's finished. There too many great games coming out all the time and not enough time to replay the classics. You can always redownload them if you want, why bother changing the HDD ?
i understand. i couldn't get pass half the games they offered through psplus, it's just ridiculous how many games they gave u and how much time you have in the day to play them.
gonna stick with the stock 500gb until the 2tb m9t becomes available
Ditto. I almost got a 1.5tb drive, but decided to wait for that exact drive as well. Knack should of been the digital game they tested, since knack was the disc based game they tested. I guess because a game like Killzone might have more assets to load, it might be the reason it took longer to load then a disc based game?
damn. should have gotten a hybrid drive for $20 more... i got a 1tb 5400 rpm drive because it was the 'recommended' one. i wasnt sure if the hybrid drives would be safe
I bought the HGST 1.5TB HDD (5400rpm) for $155 shipped and works perfect , I had no complaints with the stock 500gb load times, so stuck to the same speed. I want lots of space for future proofing and was not about to spend $850+ for 1tb samsung evo SSD for a few seconds and load times. I do not recommend getting a 7200+ rpm HDD as it will add a lot more heat to your system!
I got the same one. Came in the mail today. I'll install it over the weekend. Glad to hear it works well!
Knowing sony they will probably eventually sell their own bigger hardrives, but with all the games coming out not all of them being 50 gb it will be alright for awhile.
Can any of you guys who swapped out tell me how you did it? A link or something? Like did you upgrade before even turning on for the first time? I'm a bit confused about taking that fresh drive and booting up for the first time with it. Thanks!
Pretty sure people were warned about the SSHD's beforehand.
