don't show this to Xbox Series journalist cause their head will explode cause is too scientific for their minds to comprehend, I mean just looks how hard is to plug that thing! :D
Everyone is really on the PS5 smear campaign about how "complicated" it is. I've replace batteries on kids toys that require more work than this. Didn't know sliding a piece of plastic and undoing one screw was so hard. Or simply searching "ps5 compatible nvme ssd" really not that hard.
FWIW... its two screws. And two plates (one big, one small). Other than that, I agree. Its not that hard.
It's weird because I was seeing a bunch of articles talking about how complicated and confusing replacing the SSD was on the PS5 and how it proves that XBox got it right. I eventually started to read a few and saw that the issue they had was knowing which SSD would work on the PS5 and not the actual process of replacing the SSD itself. . . I was like WE KNEW this from the beginning!!! We knew that not just any SSD would work on the PS5 and that the PS5 was going to have certain requirements. It's weird that people are acting shocked this ended up being the case. It's weird how Mark Cerny was open and honest about everything about the PS5 and people either straight up ignored what he said or twisted what he said to fit their narrative.
I just Googled several variants of “PS5 SSD hard to install” and nothing came up, just regular guilds so who exactly Is “everyone”? I know Forbes had something like that last year buts all I saw.
They been smearing Sony since the beginning ps5. Once people said Sony did it right by letting player have options but now this.
They dont have nothing bad to say. So they try to use anything they can. There a lot of money going around. Funny that with the PS4 and changing its hard drive there wasnt any talk like this. Of course some will say but its not plug and play. It is, but its inside the console and the design of the PS5 isnt compromise with something sticking out....
@waverider "Of course some will say but its not plug and play. It is, but its inside the console and the design of the PS5 isnt compromise with something sticking out...." If you need to power off your console and open it up with a screw driver, it is not plug and play. Also, the Xbox drive sticks out for about an inch or less... at the rear of the console... it's a much more elegant solution than what Sony are imposing on everyone.
You know I actually agree. Don't know why any "journalist" is surprised consoles are becoming more like PCs with each generation. Hard drive storage, USB support, firmware updates, upgraded memory and even console mods. At least you don't have to build piece by piece like with PC gaming
" At least you don't have to build piece by piece like with PC gaming" And that's why system integrators exist. They build computers for the smooth brains.
Well PCs had to emulate consoles first. Remember? Oh silly me why would I expect anyone to remember that consoles and arcade cabinets had GPUs first and that the latter pushed 60FPS 3D graphics first as well while consoles could also rarely achieve the lofty graphics experiences of arcade cabinets before PCs were really doing any of the above. Then of course PS2 ushered in the era of parallel computing on GPUs. Then PS3 did amazing things with CPU compute, PS4 GPU compute became more popular. Now we have PS5 pushing boundaries yet again with ultrafast I/O that PCs currently aren't utilizing at all.
You shouldn't use the "J" word, it's insulting to real journalists.
They need to show this video to Orchard ASAP. He facing difficulty to add SSD to his PS5. Oops, forgot he don't have any
And they relplace batteries on thier controllers every few days. I bet these are the same people that complained and smeared the ps vita about the proprietary SD cards it had and that console failed ultimately because of that. Now sony is letting us choose our hard drive, which the speed and price will only get better with time and Xbox is selling proprietary sticks and using external hard drives. It's a very simple thing to do to replace an internal hard drive or SSD.
To be fair, everybody hated the vita memory cards. Didnt matter what side of the fence you were on. Sony already had a format: M2 (not to be confused with M.2) that was similar in size, design and performance. And it was cheaper. But nope... they had to make things weird.
I personally don't think the install is difficult at all. Now there is a smear campaign or conspiracy theory. Choice is always a good thing. I wonder how many people will still try to find the cheapeast SSD with or without a heatsink. Also, I think that mosy people will dins this easy to install. However, parents that brought this for a younger child may do a double take when their kid says that my PS5 has to be opened up to install theis drive. However, they will most likely watch a video or just have a knowledgable friend install it. Edit: first comment went straight to mentioning Xbox.
It's a great card for the price, the read speed is actually 7gbs and the write is 5.5gbs, all for £182..third party for the win.
£182 is in British pounds, it's $250 in USD
Yeah, its a good price.
Dezmond1h ago £182 is in British pounds, it's $250 in USD*** The British price is the retail price with 20% VAT added to it.. AIUI, US "State" taxes can differ from state to state and are added when ordered[??]
This is a PS5 ready NVMe PCIe 4.0 high-speed SSD. It's Aluminum dual-sided thermal design is awesome! FixWill
Why did you write your username at the bottom of your comment?

I thought about the same thing!! :D :D Mr_Luke
Type top 5 combatible PS5 SSD drives into Google, then go buy the one you want, unscrew one screw slot SSD in and replace done. It would take my 10 year old nephew or neice 5 mins to do, NXT

It would take my 10 year old nephew or neice 5 mins to do, NXT*** I'd wait for an official list confirmed by Sony.. The newest AMD processors https://en.wikipedia.org/wi... AMD announced on 9 January 2019 its upcoming Zen 2-based processors and X570 chipset would support PCIe 4.0. AMD had hoped to enable partial support for older chipsets, but instability caused by motherboard traces not conforming to PCIe 4.0 specifications made that impossible.*** Are prettu much next gen only PS 5 is full on, Bluetooth 5, Wifi 6 and Superspeed USB... Last gen the Sony Camera didn't use USB, but attached to the Mobo with a special lead. This gen both PS 5 camera and PS 4 adaptor are USB https://www.playstation.com... HD Camera or PlayStation®Camera (with a PlayStation®Camera adaptor) should be connected to a Superspeed USB port. You can connect your HD Camera or PS Camera (with an adaptor) to the USB Type-C port on the front of your PS5 console, or one of the USB Type-A ports on the back of your PS5 console. Please note, HD Camera and PS Camera (with an adaptor) are not compatible with the USB Type-A port on the front of a PS5 console.*** and both need to attach to the Superspeed USB port. No need to rush in before the Betas are over.
You're just as bad as the journalists lying about the difficulty. It isn't one screw. Don't be as bad as the journalists.
You clearly haven't opened up your ps5 to clean it I see, it's one screw you unslide the cover and slot the SSD until it clicks then replace the cover and put the 1 screw in. EPIC FAIL
I bought this yesterday. They were selling out pretty quickly on Amazon at the time
I bought the 2TB WD SN850 w/heatsink. I hope it is ready like IGN recommended.
Mark Cerny, the guy who resigned the PS5, bought rhe SN850. He just posted a picture on Twitter.
I saw that. Awesome👏
I think the only thing that is throwing people off is getting a heatsink to fit if they buy just the ssd, they could just wait and buy the recommended ones though so....
This is a nice SSD . I love the heat sink . I’ll keep an eye out for this one when the prices drop and more storage is available .
Choices! The price per TB is comparable to the market. Gladnto finally have this oprion soon to come.
It wasn't really the installation that is the issue. It was more so the getting the right specs for the drive and the cost that the average consumer will not get. Now if you are buying a drive without a heatsink the that's even more confusing to explain. The hardcore will have no issues, but stating again the average consumer will have trouble.
Thats a solid click. I felt it.
