As long as the drive is 9mm in height it should fit fine. I personally use this SSHD in my PS4 and haven't looked back since.
Just to be clear this is a Hybrid drive. It was tagged SSD to appear in searches, if that is wrong I am sorry.
The promo code to use on Newegg is: EMCPWRT48
Free shipping if you have a shoprunner account as well.
Alternatively you can also get it from Amazon for $5 more.
This is a great drive for PS4's.
I replaced with an internal. It's a little more expensive, and more time consuming to set up, because you have to make a whole system backup, but I think it's faster in the long run. It puts everything on one volume, so you don't have to mess with menu settings to move installs from one drive to the other.
I personally used the Seagate Firecuda laptop drive with 2TB of storage. I got mine off Amazon for less than $100.
Upgrading internal storage is not that hard, and in my opinion, 100% worth it. For a while, every time I got a new game I had to delete another, which really sucked. I bought a 2tb hard drive from amazon and it’s amazing. Here’s the link to the one I got https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-FireCuda-Gaming-2-5-Inch-ST2000LX001/dp/B01M1NHCZT
Essentially the Firecuda is what they call a flash-enhanced SSHD, it should be faster than the Barracude.
Amazon had a nice breakdown of the two tiers:
Scroll to the bottom.
Get the SSHD and don't waste your money on an SSD. They're only $80 from amazon, which is an amazing deal. A standard hard drive is around $80 for 2tb so there's no reason not to get the Firecuda. The speed will be better but not night and day faster. Remember the main upgrade is more space. I've had 2TB since PS4 launch and have about 500GB left. It's super nice to have all that space for games.
How much can I sell a base PS4 for? Should I just trade into Gamestop for $100 store cred to avoid having to deal with haggling/potential weird people to make a few extra bucks?
edit: I upgraded the internal HDD to 2TB
(this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M1NHCZT/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
My understanding - and I'm sure if I'm way off base here, someone will correct me - is that the PS4's CPU and bus speeds mean that there actually isn't an enormous bump in speed from a high-end HDD to an SSD. You won't notice as much of an improvement in quality by going SSD as you do in a typical PC upgrade. A great place to check on that is over in /r/PS4 or /r/PS4Pro. Most comversations about SSDs over there tend toward "not worth it", and most people say you can do just as well with an external drive storing your game data. For the PS4, hybrid drives seem to be a good balance of price and performance without spending more $$ than the upgrade justifies.
Amazon has a decent [Seagate] 2TB hybrid HDD for under $100. You can probably go even cheaper by shopping around.
2tb Firecuda. Done. 7mm which is Def in acceptable size range. Multiple replies regarding compatibility on Amazon.
Seagate 2TB FireCuda Gaming SSHD SATA 6Gb/s Flash Accelerated (8GB) Performance Hard Drive (ST2000LX001) https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01M1NHCZT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_hp6qCbNE1J95D
So it's either do the reinstall and start fresh (if it'll work) or install a new HDD? Either way I lose all data, correct?
Also, when I got the PS4 Pro in 2017 I removed the HDD and replaced it with the Seagate (ST2000LX001) FireCuda 2TB SSHD. I paid $90 for it on Amazon in 2017 when I got the Pro and now its a $179 LOL.
Is it this SSHD you're talking about?
Sadly you cant buy a 3tb hhd that will fit in your ps4 but this hhd will fit and has 2tb. Its also ment for consoles.
I have the 2TB Firecuda internal gaming hard drive. It’s been nothing short of spectacular in peformance.
Faster, but not OMG, some things are limited by the PS4 Operating system , but internal connected to the sata-3 with hybrid is noticeably faster & not too expensive . . Worth it for a sub $100 fix , here's the drive link on amazon, hope this helps, cheers !
yes, they are better for this purpose, you get ssd type speeds without the price , as well as 2 TB of space . . you will get better & faster load times , though some things are limited by the OS and will never change until the next version of the PS. this is the best upgrade for the money if you are swapping out the drive to add space ..
This drive is the best of the lot, that's why I used it after much research as I didn't want to "Break the Bank" either . .
For the same price would the 2TB Firecuda with its hybrid flash cache have any drawbacks? It sounds like a compromise between HDD and SSD.
Oops! Thats not supposed to be there! I just wanted the 2 SATA drives to run in Raid 1. I picked up one of these on Amazon prime day at %50 off. I haven't opened it yet but I knew there would be a day I could use it!
Hey there! I have a PS4 Pro with a 2 TB SSHD, one controller, and Final Fantasy XV sitting around.
Specifically this drive:
If you're interested and the price is right I'll post pics for ya. Thanks!
No problem. Most SSHDs go up to 2 TB minimum and will come in the 2.5 inch that you would need to fit in your system. I personally use the Seagate FireCuda (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M1NHCZT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_JWmQAb3V00N3F) since it is really useful for loading up games fast. Good luck with figuring out whichever solution works best for you.
The Seagate Firecuda is also a good recommendation. 2TB is $85 on Amazon at the moment. It's actually one of the drives that is frequently purchased with the Helios 300.
Does there exist a 7200 rpm, 2.5" form factor 2TB (or anything above 1TB) HDD on the market, preferably under or around $100? My 1TB hard drive is failing in my laptop, I have too much data for it anyway and would like to upgrade, but everything I can find bigger than 1TB is 5400 rpm.
If there isn't a 7200 rpm option, will 5400 rpm be acceptable for gaming? I mostly play older games and strategy games, with a few rare shooters and RPGs here and there. The only stuff I play that I know reads off the disk while playing is the newer Bethesda stuff. If that 5400 rpm is okay, is this a good choice? I've read that Seagate has high failure rates, but I've also read that HGST drives never fail, and my HGST drive has failed, sooooo
It's a 2TB SS/HD (hybrid). I don't know which part is actually SSD, it's a standard split, the rest is hard drive. It was $62.99 on prime day through amazon.
Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 2TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5-Inch Notebooks / Laptops Internal Hard Drive ST2000LX001
I have not used it yet, but I plan on installing it in my PS4 within the next few days. I just haven't gotten around to it.
Don't buy an SSD. If you must have more performance the hybrid SSD/hdd is the way to go. Here's 2TB for $90.
This is pretty much all you'll ever need. Me and all my friends have this and it's very good.
I purchased this for my desktop: Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 2TB but I noticed it says " 2.5-Inch Notebooks / Laptops Internal Hard Drive ", so will it work for my build? My motherboard is ASRock AB350m Pro4 if that's relevant
You would go with a Hard drive since there is already an SSD installed.. This would be a great selection and is even recommended by Amazon for that specific laptop.
I had the same issue. I was back and forth between internal & external. Storage for the money...external is the way to go. However, I have on OG PS4 with only 2 USB ports. One is always in use for the VR, the other, typically a charging cable for the AIM or other external device. I went with a 2 TB Internal drive.
I figured it would be best to keep my one remaining USB port free for whatever I may need. If I fill up the new 2TB drive, then I will move forward with an external drive, but I figure by then, I'll have moved on to the next generation PS console.
I use these ones personally. They work pretty well. Haven't had any complaints myself.
Man, I'm not sure a full-blown SSD drive would be as effective as it would be in a desktop/laptop but to each their own.
I actually JUST replaced my hdd with a 2TB FireCuda 2 days ago, so I can verify u/tracetrinity's advice.
I have burned through half of 1.5/2.5, all of ME:A, I have been working on my corporation again in GTA:V, I still have like 4 or 5 more KH games, Little Nightmares is in the mail, I have Prey also. There is a few more games but I legitimately cant remember what anymore.
Storage isn't an issue for me anymore since I upgraded to a 2TB Hybrid to solve my storage needs which is on sale right now too.
Indeed, but these past few months the selection of great 2.5 mechanical drives have been great! If you're looking for speed and storage then you could opt for these newer hybrid drives:
We use these at work to store our large CAD files. Works great because of because of the onboard SSD cache.
Honestly, getting a Pro and using it on a 1080p TV isn't bad. It's what I did and I'm rocking a 9 year old 50" 1080p Plasma TV still. Most games will do super sampling as long as the developers have patched the game to use the extra power from the Pro.
The other commonly overlooked feature is the ability to stream in 1080p and 1080p 60fps directly from the PS4 Pro. This is nice to have if you're someone who is a casual streamer or want to capture some video for friends or personal projects. Especially if you're not going to invest in a capture card and PC to do all the fancy streaming work.
Also, upgrading the HDD is an option but a 2TB SSD is expensive at around $600-700. Even a 1TB SSD is still $300+. I opted for a 2TB SSHD (currently $99), found here: https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-FireCuda-2-5-Inch-Notebooks-ST2000LX001/dp/B01M1NHCZT/ in addition to upgrading to the PS4 Pro. I already had a 1TB SSHD in my regular PS4, and I figured why not upgrade to 2TB once I got my Pro.
I have a SSD in one of my PS4 Pros and a SSHD in the other. Honestly unless you are doing a side by side comparison the difference isn't that noticeable due to the SATA speed of the PS4. I would recommend getting a 2TB FireCuda drive.
For $10 more you can get this one - faster plus 5 yrs warranty, same 7mm.
A 2TB SSD, the good ones can cost up to a thousand dollars (Samsung)
You can take a look around, but for a fraction of the price, you can get something like a 2TB Seagate Firecuda SSHD
It's a Hybrid SSD/HDD, it starts out slow like an HDD, but the more you load a game, the faster is loads thing, closer to an actual SSD.
Lot's of videos and reviews on it, I personally like it in my system.
But if money isn't a thing, a traditional SSD is worth it. I will probably never use another HDD in my PS again after having the SSHD in there.
Right on. I have upgraded the internal as well, you have to make sure it is 9.5 mm or less in thickness or it won't fit inside (without modifications).
I purchased and installed the Seagate Firecuda 2 TB SSHD (Solid state hybrid drive). It is a bit faster, especially on frequently played games. It is not the cheapest though, you can find less expensive "regular" hard drives. Here is the link for the Seagate Firecuda I have:
If you can return it and get your money back, I just installed this
Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 2TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5-Inch Notebooks / Laptops Internal Hard Drive (ST2000LX001) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M1NHCZT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_18VBybPEQ03PA
I am very happy with this drive so far. Plenty of space, games load quicker, I can switch them quicker, and it has just been a really positive experience overall. Sorry about your luck on your initial try at an upgrade, but once you have a larger drive in there you will be glad with the effort.
I was skeptical and nervous about my ability to do it, and was so happy that everything installed as intended.
Heads up, you may want to get this HD instead. 1tb will give you more room to work with, but if you're going to go through with the new HD process then you might as well just get a 2tb.
It's currently not in stock on Amazon, but this drive is pretty awesome for the PS4.
I use the 1TB version and I get pretty close to SSD timings, at 25% of a cost.
I went with the 2TB FireCuda. That being said the Seagate SSHD's are great with the Playstation. I have a 1TB Seagate SSHD in my original launch PS4 since day one and its still running strong.
I bought the Firecuda 2TB SSHD. on a PRO even though it uses SATA III the data traveling is still bottlenecked so the difference between an SSD vs. SSHD on a pro or even an OG PS4 is not that much honestly.
The only SSHD I could find is this seagate one but it's currently out of stock which is a little disappointing. I was already planning on getting a 2tb HDD but was really hoping if there was a 2tb SSHD out there, not really surprised that this sold out tho.
I went with the Seagate 2TB Firecuda Gaming SSHD SATA 6GB/s 64MB Cache 2.5" Hard Drive (see below). I replaced the hdd in my day one original PS4 with a Seagate 1TB SSHD and its still running strong.
I'm guessing we just have to wait until Amazon stocks it. At the very least the page is up now so it's just the waiting game...
Ah thanks, good point. I've been focusing my searches on PS4 and haven't taken much into account PC reviews. I'll check that out. Just wasn't sure if the flash size made any difference for what the PS4 uses.
As for the Firecuda, they just announced a 2TB 2.5" SSHD, although I think it's been hard to find right now.
Thanks again for the input!
Not the 3.5" Desktop version, but still a great price. Also on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-FireCuda-Gaming-2-5-Inch-ST2000LX001/dp/B01M1NHCZT/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1511565116&sr=8-2&keywords=firecuda
Buy a new hard drive
If the PS4 Pro is like the previous PS4 or PS4 slim then:
2.5" HDD, SSD, or SSHD are all fine
Can't have a height more than 9.5mm
Even the OG PS4 and Slim PS4 get some speedups (very modest so may not be worth the cost) in terms of loading times for SSHDs and SSDs see: Digital Foundry article and comparison Video if you're lazy
Pro indeed has SATA III (6Gb/s == 750MB/s) Source so it should be able to take better advantage of SSHDs and SSDs for even faster load speeds than described in the DF article above.
The limit for 2.5" drives appears to be 2TB I haven't found anything with higher storage for that form factor
If you can wait for when Amazon stocks it, I recommend: Seagate ST2000LX001
Looks like the ST2000LX001 is already available @ Newegg
EDIT: As for me, I want even more storage than that so I'm going to try
(DISCLAIMER!!! NO IDEA IF THIS WILL WORK):
eSATA to SATA connector
eSATA 6Gb/s capable dock w/fan
and Spec Sheet
Seagate 3.5" 4 TB SSHD
unlike the PS3.. the PS4 will dump pretty much the whole game on the HDD..
if you have a PS4.. i would recommend a 2TB SSHD.. the drive was on sale for $60 on Amazon and Newegg
I don't personally own it but I've heard great things about the Seagate Firecuda. Amazon link
$115 on Amazon, $108 on B&H.
Got a fair amount of interest last time it went on sale, so I figured some people might still want it.
Now also available from Amazon.
Was about to checkout and it sold out. Guess I'll buy it from Amazon. Same price but have to pay tax. It'll replace my PS4 HDD.

The reason you're having issues with that drive is that it's a 5400rpm drive, which means it'll have difficulty keeping up with the influx of data from your video recording. Look into the Seagate FireCuda drives, a 2TB 2.5 inch form factor drive that's generally under $100 (currently showing as $72 on Amazon and as $75 on Newegg US sites), it uses a bit of flash memory to work as a cache for the drive, and the bulk of the storage is a 7200 rpm platter which will keep up with your recordings better.
If it took that long, your hard drive might be on its way out. I highly suggest backing up your entire system to an external hard drive so you dont lose anything:
If it works fine for awhile, then good. Otherwise if you have issues again:
Install a new hard drive such as this one:
And then restore the backup.
I have 2 hard drives
They've been on the market for years now
it’s a hybrid drive! this is the link

Wena cabros, estoy viendo HDDs para mi note (tiene uno de 1tb 7200 rpm que ya se fundió) pa ver si es que puedo cambiarlo yo nms. En solotodo vi este que era el + barato de 2tb y 2,5'' pero el tema es que es solo de 5400 rpm ¿Afectaría mucho al desempeño pensando que lo quiero igual pa juegos pesados? ¿Alguna otra recomendación?
Edit: Tambien estaba viendo que este me sirve e igual se ve piola, pero esta mas caro y me da pera comprar x amazon x lo del virus
I see the 1tb on amazon for $60, and 2tb for $83. so $23 more to double space? seems worth it to me.
last year around black friday saw them closer to 70/75
I use an external Seagate 2 Tb SSHD in a docking station that connects via USB and I find it to be just fine for playing Steam games. It is speed wise just fine. Seagate Firecuda 2TB https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M1NHCZT/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 with Sabrent USB 3.0 to SATA External Hard Drive
1st, there's an event going on, so this is normal.
2nd, yes & no to the external drive.
Yes, it can be faster than the stock drive, BUT, will always be slower being on a USB-bus instead of the much faster internal connection.
Put in a 2 TB SSD or Hybrid-SSD as the internal drive , this is the biggest and best ps4 upgrade to make as far as performance & loading go.
another issue is bandwidth, never use wifi, always put the ps4 on a cable !
I used this drive : https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M1NHCZT/?tag=androidcentralb-20&ascsubtag=UUacUdUnU66387YYwYg
Still rocking mine:
I replaced the hard drive with a hybrid for storage and better reliability. I seemed to be catching errors increasingly.
I picked up this hard drive, and it works like a champ. (Seagate 2TB FireCuda Gaming SSHD)
I religiously cleaned my PS4 with canned air and vacuuming the side vents. Well for the last year or so the fans would get spinning so fast, I feared I was calling in my own 'Airstrike', playing COD. So I ended up following a YouTube on disassembly and did a full clean out, pulling it apart cleaning out the heat sink, fan, and power supply. Sure enough, it had buildup that couldn't clear the heat sink.
After the clean, the PS4 is dead silent and running perfectly. I should have done the cleaning earlier, but just never got around to it. Its honestly still weird, I find myself checking it a lot of the time now, just to make sure the fans are still spinning!
I'm not sure if this is the video I used, I couldn't find it in my history; but this one looks fine.
https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-FireCuda-Accelerated-Performance-ST2000LX001/dp/B01M1NHCZT Is your Best bet for internal atleast.
I have a 2TB Firecuda hybrid drive, I could sell for $75 shipped:
Bah, I cannot link for shit
You need to upgrade from the Shitty Stock HD they have in all the PS4s.
I have a a 2Tb SSHD Firecuda in my Pro. Pretty much the best upgrade you can get for the PS4 regardless of which version you have. I pulled the stock out of my Pro day one, and put this in. I play Primarily Battlefield which is known for it's horrendous Map Loadtimes, and I'm constantly first one in, waiting 45 seconds for other people to load in for matches to start.
>This load screen can last up to 3 minutes. Even if you doing the same thing over and over again
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hftHjOvcUtc - The load speeds get faster as it caches more of the map data, after a few loads of a map your load times will probably be less than half of what you have now.
2 Tb - https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-FireCuda-Accelerated-Performance-ST2000LX001/dp/B01M1NHCZT
1 tb - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LWRTRZU/ref=twister_B01M1OGKBK?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
I changed out my Pro HDD with this 2TB
I also have this, for $90 you cannot go wrong. I don't have it connected to the PS4, don't need it yet and need it for other projects. It will work fine though.
Yeah, but don't. Get a good hybrid drive, the load times are barely different between the SSD and a Hybrid drive, and the price difference isn't worth it, in my opinion. You can get a very good hybrid drive with 2tb capacity for a fair price.
Just buy a 2TB internal hard drive for your ps4 like I did and never worry about space again.
Like this one:
Hybrid ones work better & are cheaper, this one is the best as far as price/speed/reliable , it overall just works.
for more info, this article has good questions answered . .
Hope this helps, this is the best you can do until the system itself is designed to use more or go faster .. Cheers Guardian !
I just got this laptop on Tuesday and I bought this hard drive for it. Super easy to install and works beautifully. Plus its a hybrid drive.
As connstark said, there are 2 bays. I would keep the 256G for your main programs and OS and add the above drive. Not too expensive with a ton of space and plenty fast.
As far as the RAM goes, you probably wont need any more than 8gb for a while, and the G7 is extremely finicky when it comes to upgrading the ram. It appears only certain sticks are recognized by this laptop. Many people have had problems buying Crucial Sport RAM that should be supported to find that only 1 stick is recognized at 2400. Just google "Dell G7 RAM upgrade problems" and you will find lots of threads discussing what sticks work and what dont.
Crucial recently shortened the list of compatible RAM to these sticks.
Unless you want to spend close to $200 on an 8gb memory upgrade, I would just grab yourself an SSHD and sit tight on the RAM.
I plan on waiting for a couple things...
The best would be a SSD but the are very expensive. Next best option would be to get SSHD. SSHD is not as fast as SSD but I saw a big improvement from the PS4 stock drives. Here’s a couple links to a very good upgrade drive for your PS4. I have the same one.
Seagate 2TB FireCuda Gaming SSHD SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 2.5-Inch Hard Drive
It went up a few buck from when I got mine a few months ago. I paid $88 with tax.
Ohhh, I already got that covered, boyo. P:
This will be nearly as good.
Are you talking about the SSHD firecuda?
This one is on sale from /r/ps4deals
Was looking at this one https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M1NHCZT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_PlLzzbQTCA0PM
Have you had any experience with it? I would prefer an ssd since I've heard the difference is night and day
Expresscard will drain your battery even when not in use.
Why have two SSDs for a combined capacity of 500GB? For about $50 more you can get a single 1TB SSD in the main slot.
Or put your OS on mSATA and get one of these puppies in the main slot for data.
I'd get a single 8GB stick when when you inevitably want to upgrade to 16 later. Also I'd get 2133 MHz memory, your X230 supports it so why not. E.g. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231759
No problem! And as a hackintosh, that is essentially the case, but you'd run into driver issues if your laptop's hardware doesn't have Mac drivers. For instance, any AMD components you might have in the laptop simply cannot be run on macOS as there are no drivers for them on Mac. That said...you may not have to change to a new OS. Have you tried to perform a new clean install of Windows 10? A lot of times the issues of the OS slowing down on Windows 10 are due to updates slowing it down by creating needless bloat and a reformatting would help with that, or just a clean install of the OS. I'd try that first before anything else, and to do so, you can use the media creation tool found at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10. Alternatively, do you know if the laptop has a slot for an m.2 SSD? You might be able to try adding one of those in there and see what happens, and if that doesn't help or simply isin't an option forr you to do so, you might try replacing your storage drive you have now (I'm not sure if it's a hard drive but considering it's a former Win 8 machine I'm assuming its a mechanical drive) with an SSD and/or upgrading your RAM. If that's too pricey for you you can get a 2TB hybrid drive (I don't have this drive in here yet, but I do have a hybrid drive in my Dell Gaming 7567 laptop I'm on) from Seagate for $90 before shipping on Amazon (found at https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-FireCuda-2-5-Inch-Notebooks-ST2000LX001/dp/B01M1NHCZT/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1495495459&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=firecuda+2tb+2.5&psc=1). I know this solution will mean spending more money but it sounds like a RAM deficency and/or a failing storage drive. You might be able to make Windows 10 still work by creating a recovery key on your desktop with the tool I linked above and/or installing Windows on a new SSD on your laptop either in place of or in addition to your current storage media in it.
For reference, I put this 2TB hybrid drive in my PS4Pro and still have just over 1TB of free space after installing all my digital games at once.
If I upgrade the 1tb in my PS Pro it'll be with an internal Seagate Firecuda. This option isn't getting mentioned and it can shave a significant amount of time off your boot up. One demo on YouTube shows it shaving 14 seconds off startup (38 seconds down to 24).
Keep in mind that hybrids aren't full solid state drives. They monitor what tasks are being repeatedly read from the hard drive and store those items in the limited solid state memory. So boot gets a big boost but a game won't see gains until it's loaded up several times.
Buy this, you'll be set.
Yea I'm sure
You could always get a
Just a regular one that would work in a laptop.
Here's an example:
Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 2TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5-Inch Notebooks / Laptops Internal Hard Drive (ST2000LX001) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M1NHCZT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_zGr0ybWPAXHGH
$113 at Amazon, for comparison
You can get the 2.5" laptop model for $125 for the 2TB option, or $70 for the 1TB version, if you don't want to just use an external HDD
https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-FireCuda-2-5-Inch-Notebooks-ST2000LX001/dp/B01M1NHCZT or this
whats the difference between:
SSHD all the time everytime https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M1NHCZT/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1YG06ETGEGC7D&coliid=I7NSUFOVP58ZC&psc=1
Was it this one?
Sold out on amazon as well.
Amazon. $114.99, sells out fast but it's in stock once a week. Gotta watch it like a hawk.
Try these , first is sshd and second is normal one
I would love to get a 1 TB SSD but Ive already spent a ton of money so Im waiting for Seagate to release their new 2 TB 2.5" SSHD. Should come out soon, 1 TB is already out.
Wait for this to release:
If you can't wait then:
I have no clue about the clicks, my 10 year old mostly plays the Pro. But when I've played it in the last week or so I haven't heard any noises.
This is the one I put in the PS4 Pro back in 2017, the Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 2TB 2.5-Inch Internal Hard Drive. I was going to order it tonight because most likely I'll have to replace the current FireCuda but it's now $170+ on Amazon. 2017 it was only $90. I need to find a 2TB SSHD or SSD that isn't going to kill my wallet. If I remember correctly, 2TB is the most you can fit in the Pro?
Also, I got my son this WD 4TB PS4 External USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive. He had most of that filled up too. He's all upset that he most likely will lose all of saved game data (Minecraft, etc.) He has like 200-300 games on the internal and external HDD.
I looked into this recently and every article I found said speed gains from an SSD were minor and not worth the storage difference versus an SSHD and I can see why. You only need to cache the game you're currently playing and you don't want to have to keep reinstalling games because you've run out of space. This is your best bet for a new internal drive.
The 2TB Seagate Firecuda works well. https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-FireCuda-Accelerated-Performance-ST2000LX001/dp/B01M1NHCZT
Why wouldn't you just buy an internal drive? Derp.
Like this one. More expensive than your choice but it's one of the more popular options for PS4 at the moment.
NO, external is NOT what you want.
You want to replace the internal drive with a better one !
usb bus speeds are way too slow, google how to replace the internal drive for xbox, I'm ps4 & don't know how that one goes..
this drive is king of speed, space & low cost !! --> https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-FireCuda-Accelerated-Performance-ST2000LX001/dp/B01M1NHCZT
Well, his reply has some data to back his claim up and you have anecdotal evidence.
Which in academia has more weight? A study, even if flawed, or an opinion with absolutely no evidence?
I want to believe you, for the record. I want to go and switch my 2TB SSHD for an equally sized and cost effective SSD. But that doesn't exist.
I can get a 2TB SSHD for $89.99 or a 2TB SSD for $500+.
That's strike 1 against a SSD.
And even if the SSD is exponentially faster than a SSHD, you're not going to notice much difference with the PS4 Pro. I can already get Diablo 3 up, running, and into a rift in a matter of seconds. Shaving a second off that isn't worth the cost to storage ratio.
Plus, personally, I'm playing one game over and over until I'm done with it. I'm not going from Diablo 3 to Destiny to Call of Duty in one day. I'm picking one, I'm sticking to it, and the cached times work perfectly fine for that.
So if someone doesn't mind spending more than the console itself then sure, go with an SSD. Or if you have one laying around the house. But if a person is purchasing one, new, for the PS4 Pro and want a lot of storage and faster load times? SSHD makes way more sense.
I have no issues you reporting the issues you have had. You are upset that you've had to deal with this issue, I get that. But the majority of people haven't had these issues. You telling people to stay away from them because of your personal experience with them is short sited.
Get them directly from Amazon for $90.49 each. You don't want to put used drives in your consoles.

These are 7mm thick, will work fine with PS4 Pro's 9.5mm thickness clearance.
