Bought this Samsung 2TB HDD last week, took about 2 days to finish re-downloading all my games (plus some that I deleted to make more space). Works great!

u/JaegarJaquez · 8 pointsr/PS4

Currently this is one of the most used 2TB drive.
Also, you can get this one and remove the hard from inside. There are many videos on YouTube.

If you're looking to install bigger sizes (4TB+) that has 7200 rpm, get Nyko Data Bank, it allows you to install 3.5 inch hard drives which basically have 7200 rpm.

EDIT: I'm mistaken. There's a 1TB Drive that rotates 7200 and more. Thanks /u/dano8801 and /u/IPurpleIDrank for correcting me :)

u/DJXiej · 5 pointsr/PS4

Obligatory Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB. It's the brand of Samsung Stock HDD already found in PS4 with higher capacity.

I personally got the Samsung Momentus Spinpoint 2TB which works like a dream for me. No beeping issues others have said from the Backup Plus.

u/Troll__McLure · 5 pointsr/applehelp
  1. Get an adapter for it, like OptiBay.

  2. I'm not sure if a 2 TB drive like this will work, according to the comments it's 12.9 mm thick, while I think 12.5 mm is the maximum. Edit: Maybe this one will 9.5 mm.
u/m_d_h · 4 pointsr/PS4

It's a laptop hard drive with a casing. Remove the casing and you'll have a hard drive that can be used on the PS4. Or you can purchase the Seagate 2TB hard drive which is the same drive that's on the Seagate Backup Plus but without the external enclosure and more expensive.

u/11War · 4 pointsr/PS4

I've said it before and I'll say it again, get yourself one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Momentus-SpinPoint-ST2000LM003-Notebook/dp/B00I8O6OQ4

It's discounted on price and it's one of the only 2TB HDDs that the PS4 can fit. It's also ridiculously easy to install, Sony even has a guide to upgrading your HDD on their website.

u/kamz_00 · 4 pointsr/PS4

Not as cheap as the method provided by the OP but if you don't want the hassle of opening a device and taking the HDD out you can buy this 2tb HDD from Samsung for £89.99 that works on the PS4.

It's £30 more than the Eurogamer method but you're paying that extra money for the convenience and so replacing the HDD is hassle free.


u/MrMusAddict · 4 pointsr/buildapc

I've seen HDDs installed in ODD bays before, but only on Macs. Never thought about doing it on an Alienware. Might be easy, might be hard, might be impossible. This would be especially true if the ODD was a slot-loader.

Easiest thing I can recommend would be to get a 1TB 2.5"-wide 9.5MM-tall HDD, and clone your current OS onto it using a USB-to-SATA Cloning Kit (generally ~$15-$25). That'll leave you 3/4 of a terabyte left over for everything else you need.

Heck, you can even get this 2TB drive which should fit in your system just fine (2.5"-wide, 9.5mm-tall).

u/JessicaCelone · 4 pointsr/hardware

Your use case seems pretty niche then. I'd consider myself a power user, and i've barely used 1TB of storage on my system. A 500GB SSD, and something like [this] (https://www.amazon.com/Blue-1TB-Laptop-Hard-Drive/dp/B00DCM91WQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1465612298&sr=1-1&keywords=7mm+hdd) would be enough for most people, and [this would be good enough for most of the rest] (https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Seagate-2-5-Inch-Internal-ST2000LM003/dp/B00I8O6OQ4/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1465612418&sr=1-1&keywords=9mm&refinements=p_n_feature_keywords_three_browse-bin%3A4990425011%2Cp_n_feature_keywords_four_browse-bin%3A8067152011)

Obviously 5400rpm will be balls for people who work with media, but for purely consumption, it should be fine.

u/JJMcGee83 · 3 pointsr/PS4

I'm personally going to go for 2TB because I don't know if I'll notice that big of a difference in performance.

I'm trying to decide between these ones




but I can't decide if either would be better or worse.

Upon comparing them closely I couldn't tell any difference in specs between the $90 one and the $100

u/killbot0224 · 3 pointsr/PS4

There's only one 2TB drive that fits, AFAIK

It's a Samsung drive and you can get it in external drive form (and take it out of the case to install it), or in bare drive form (which is usually more expensive)

  1. Seagate Backup Plus SLIM 2TB
  2. Samsung Spinpoint M9T laptop drive

    Advantage to the second is you don't Have to mess with it.

    The advantage to the first is that you can repulse the drive you remove from the PS4 as a portable drive when you're done.

    Be very careful that you're getting a drive that fits. There are 2.5" drives that are too tall (12mm instead of 9.5mm).
u/J0hnnyArs0n · 3 pointsr/PS4

I have this brand and had it installed since Oct 2014 with no issues at all. There's newer models available, but this one works great for my ps4.

u/iBobaFett · 3 pointsr/PS4

Jesus no, those prices are ridiculous. Just go with this one, I've been using it for over a year now. No issues at all.

For about $25 more, he could also get a 2TB hard drive like this Samsung Seagate 2TB Laptop HDD SATA III 2.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive 9.5MM (ST2000LM003) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I8O6OQ4/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_veALwb2FZDD74

u/Jrrolomon · 3 pointsr/playstation

This is the one I got. I've had it about 6 months with no problem. You'll notice the PS4 boots a bit faster than the factory hard drive as well. At least it did for me.


It is amazingly easy to install a new HD on a PS4. I would recommend doing it right out of the box for the least amount of hassle. Just YouTube it and you'll be happy with your decision. Let me know if you have questions.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/PS4

not sure if there is anything special about them. Probably just a Sony-branded HGST or Toshiba drive. You will have to take it out of the case anyway to put it inside the PS4. The PS4 doesn't accept external drives via USB.

If you're willing to do that (take it out of the case), you may want this one instead as it's bigger: Samsung Seagate Momentus SpinPoint ST2000LM003 2TB 2.5" SATA Notebook Hard Drive 9.5MM

u/blade85 · 3 pointsr/PS4

Your better off going for a SSHD rather than a full blown SSD (the performance difference on the PS4 is negligable and not worth the extra cost). a 1TB drive - Seagate

Also if you dont mind a normal drive then a 2TB one will be released by the end of this month I think - Samsung drive

Or the 1TB version for a third of the price Also samsung

u/WarrenG21 · 2 pointsr/bloodborne

I actually just upgraded my hard drive and did a bit amount of research into it. Depending on the specs, there are definitely some differences in load times but all in all they are pretty negligible. Look for articles on IGN or others that will give you rest results. You will have to spend 200-400 for a nice one and still will save only 5 seconds or so on load times. I went for this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00I8O6OQ4. 2 TB for about 100 dollars and great reviews as far as compatibility and performance.

Here's a good Article: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-ps4-hard-drive-upgrade-guide

u/DexRogue · 2 pointsr/PS4

Buy this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I8O6OQ4
People will suggest the external drive, that's fine but remember when you pull it out of the case the warranty is VOID. This one comes with a two year warranty.

Install and move everything over, then you have nothing to worry about. Honestly, if you have the money just go for it then you don't have to deal with it down the road. I did it for that very reason.

Also, just a heads up you only have a one year warranty on the PS4 unless you purchased an extended one from the store you bought it from. If you're worried about that, I'd drop the money on the Protection Plan they sell in the PS store. $54 for three years including accidents? That's a $1.50 a month to not worry about my PS4 for three years. Yes please.

u/Ripper_Bravo_Six · 2 pointsr/PS4

The one i bought on amazon is sold out but i just got a seagate 2tb for about 60$. Seagate is a very good and common brand.

Edit: here is the link to the same one i bought but mine was on sale from a different seller.


u/iNeedScissorsSixty7 · 2 pointsr/PS4

If you're looking to go for the 2 TB option, I believe there is only one HDD on Amazon that will work. I have it, and I installed one in both my PS4 and my buddy's PS4. Here is a LINK to said hard drive.

u/stegnersaurus · 2 pointsr/PS4

I had around 1.77 TB free before installing anything.

I bought this one:


u/lindseyxsims · 2 pointsr/PS4

Like how cheap? What's your budget?

When I replaced my internal drive with this one, I got it for $89.00 by clicking where it says "Used & new (16) from $79.00 & FREE shipping." and it was brand new, not used. So I think that was cheap but I'm not sure what you consider to be cheap.

u/HyruleCool · 2 pointsr/PS4


I have had no problems with this one and it is the same brand they use for the systems.

u/bassem68 · 2 pointsr/DestinyTheGame

I'm going to guess something between 2-8 gigs for RoI. I've heard a lot of rumblings of guardians running low on space. This HDD has been running strong for myself since June last year, no issues, decent price, and super fast to install

u/Auld_Fahrt · 2 pointsr/PS4

[samsung] http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00I8O6OQ4/ref=ox_ya_os_product_refresh_T1

Only had a few weeks, seems okay. Apart from the squeaky noises, I assume recalibration noises.

u/Kocaptin · 2 pointsr/techsupport

Googling that model shows its a notebook. be sure to check thickness, because its a notebook. Somthing like this: http://www.amazon.com/Seagate-HN-M201RAD-Momentus-SpinPoint-ST2000LM003/dp/B00I8O6OQ4/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1426126743&sr=1-1&keywords=9.5MM+2.5%22

looks like it will fit. Normally i would research it for you but i have to get some sleep for school but i see no reason why it would deviate from the normal notebook HDD size. If you could confirm that i will help you find a good hard drive for that computer.

u/Alsharad · 2 pointsr/PS4

Samsung Seagate SpinPoint is the best one out there


u/Techcole · 2 pointsr/xbox

I got a 2TB usb 3.0 external drive for my xbox one on my birthday(dec 5th) and when i installed it i followed these steps.

  • With the console off, plug in the drive.
  • Turn on the console and wait for the home screen to load.
  • a notification will appear telling you that your 'External drive is ready to be configured'
  • Hold the home button to open that and configure it.
  • After configuration you will be giving a final window asking to install all future items on this drive, choose yes!

    Hope this helped, I just did it myself, but if you're willing to spend $140 on a 2tb expansion drive for your xbox I would suggest doing it with these.

    $40 - 2.5" Hard Drive Enclosure & 3 Front USB 3.0 Ports Media HUB - Xbox One

    $100 - 2.5" Sata HDD
u/T_at · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I wouldn't use any of them.

If you can spare $100, get one of these - it'll be faster, more reliable, and last longer.

u/Captain_Midnight · 2 pointsr/PS4

When it comes to console storage, hybrid drives are a waste of money, sometimes performing even slower than the stock drive. The solid-state section of the drive is simply too small to be used effectively as a cache, and the OS isn't set up to handle it like that.

You can pick up a 2.5-inch external drive for $86, pop the enclosure open, and pull the drive out. Although it's a 5400RPM, the sheer areal density makes it effectively much faster than its spec implies.

Newegg and Best Buy also carry that drive, currently for $90. It's relatively easy to pop out, because the enclosure is held together with adhesive instead of plastic clips. There are several Youtube videos that will give you some visual aid.

Be aware that removing the drive from the enclosure will void its warranty (but upgrading the PS4's storage will not void the PS4's warranty).

Edit: It's probably worth spending $8 more to get the bare drive, since its warranty will remain intact.

u/UnlimitedButts · 2 pointsr/PS4

You can't use an external hdd via usb. You have to buy one to replace your 500gb. Here's a 2gb hdd for 90 bucks.

Best internal hard drive for ps4. I installed one myself. Runs perfect. http://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Momentus-SpinPoint-ST2000LM003-Notebook/dp/B00I8O6OQ4

Here are the CrystalDiskMark results for an external mechanical drive I have. Remember to multiply by 8 to get the speed in megabits. 140 megabytes/second = 1120 megabits/second. http://imgur.com/sQ1TW3g

EDIT: If you were wondering what happened, the person I was replying to claimed no hard drive got better speeds than 180 megabits per second.

u/Ps4_and_Ipad_Lover · 1 pointr/PS4

Because the error code means the game crashes and it's very simple how to do it look up a video on YouTube well here is video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FJHYAfiYRs here is doing a 1tb but you can use a 2tb as long as it's 2.5 inches here is a good one http://amzn.com/B00I8O6OQ4 and I think it's just a bad sector in the drive so ya replace the drive super easy.

u/GeneralOsik · 1 pointr/buildapc

Kind of odd, and I'm sure it's a typo, but this 2.5" HDD that you mentioned says "SATA II 6.0 Gbps interface" which doesn't exist. It should either be SATA II 3.0 Gbps, or SATA III 6.0 Gbps. Either way, wow, last time I checked, the largest 2.5" drives were 1TB.

u/tiberiousr · 1 pointr/PS4

Picked up one of these and installed it into my PS4, works great and the installation was a breeze.

u/the11thmatt · 1 pointr/PS4

Here is a great 2tb hard drive for the PS4 http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00I8O6OQ4/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1420528457&sr=8-1&dpPl=1&dpID=41G%2B6GaAMnL&ref=plSrch&pi=AC_SX200_QL40
You will need to go to application saved data management in settings to backup your game data with the PS+ cloud service or with USB. Then when you set up the new hard drive you go back into those settings and download the data.

u/x1xTICTACx1x · 1 pointr/PS4

i bought Seagate 2TB Laptop HDD from amazon for my ps4 last year and still running great i recommend this for you

u/zerrafett · 1 pointr/PS4

2TB from seagate is great, here is the one I purchased. Installation was easy and fairly quick. That tutorial is in the sidebar.

u/C1NNABUN · 1 pointr/PS4

Thanks. I got this one when I upgraded so there was no enclosure to swap:


It was on the expensive side but a lot of people were praising it. There were plenty of cheaper external ones at the time too, but I opted for the good stuff. Oh well, 10 bucks for an enclosure is no biggie. On a side not, having 2 tb storage is so very nice.. I am just constantly looking for stuff to fill up my HDD lol.

u/GiveEmHellMatty · 1 pointr/PS4

I recommend immediately upgrading your hard drive so that you don't have to worry about it down the line. I bought my PS4 on Black Friday 2014 and I've needed to upgrade the HD for a few months now. Finally upgraded it today to this 2TB Seagate HD.

I'm currently in the process of redownloading all my PSN games and patches, which have been a pain. It would've been an equal pain buying and backing up to an external HD. This is why I recommend immediately upgrading your HD. It was surprisingly very easy to do, as I followed the link on the sidebar of this subreddit.

Just format a Flash Drive to Fat32 or ExFat and download the New Install file from Sony. Slide cover off PS4, unscrew 5 screws, replace HD, rescrew, boot into Safe Mode and install the OS Software from the New Install file. Boom. I was done in no time at all.

u/Nygis · 1 pointr/PS4

Day one, no issues with system or controllers. Upgrading HDD to this soon.

u/Dr_Blitz_Krieger · 1 pointr/PS4

I just received the OWC bundle, yes. And I was comparing it to the base price of this drive: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00I8O6OQ4/ref=redir_mdp_mobile/190-5138600-8818750

Which is the same one that several other people in this thread have mentioned. And I knew that the bundle was cheaper compared to the base price, but wasn't aware it was on sale currently, making it in fact more expensive. I didn't intend to cause any confusion or mislead anybody and I apologize if I did, I merely found the bundle I received to be a convenient package and wanted to share it with the op.

u/DrexonDrexon · 1 pointr/PS4

I have this internal 2 TB seagate HDD. The data transfer and set up took maybe 25 minutes.

Do you know if the one you linked is different to this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I8O6OQ4?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00 ?
I bought this one and it worked great for two months, and then i randomly started getting error code CE-34335-8, hard drive not detected and became unusable.

u/jayville74 · 1 pointr/PS4

This is the one I got:

I got it around the middle of August. It hasn't given me any trouble, and all the extra space is just great.
Also, if you have and still play a PS3, but you lack the space, you should remove your current PS4 hard drive (if your getting a new one) and put it into your PS3. Really came in handy.

u/RuckusMma · 1 pointr/PS4

Put in a seagate 2tb last year. Havent had any issues with it.

Edit this is the one i have https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I8O6OQ4/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 it says there is a new model out.

u/nickc98 · 1 pointr/PS4

As the PS4 uses a 5400RPM HDD, would using a 7200RPM one change much? I guess the loading times would be a bit faster...

Not sure I need/want the extra RPM so I think I'll just get a 2TB HDD of some sort that will fit into the PS4 (2.5" or under I've heard)

EDIT: This one look any good?


u/wehopeuchoke · 1 pointr/PS4

It was actually a 2TB hard drive, that was a typo. But it's this one right here

u/cholita7 · 1 pointr/PS4

Glad you got it fixed. If you can, think about upgrading to this. I got tired of deleting games to make space... it's pretty cheap too https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I8O6OQ4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/fudd321 · 1 pointr/NoMansSkyTheGame

I went a step further and bought the 2 tb drive, but I buy all my games digital so I need the extra space.


u/chop924 · 1 pointr/PS4

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the PS4 is not able to use an external HD (as in you're connecting the external HD to the USB input).

You CAN take out the HD itself out of the housing and replace the PS4 stock one with it though. You'll have to check on which ones are compatible.

I replaced my HD with this one, and it works great:


u/xxMrAnarchyxx · 1 pointr/PS4

Found this.


This one seems like a good option. I did my replacement a year ago so I can't remember all the details but I think the one you posted is the wrong kind . Go to the PlayStation support page for info and look up guides on replacing your hdd.

u/TheTyGoss · 1 pointr/xboxone

Like would this one work?


Has great reviews, lots of storage, it's only 5400rpm though, would that be a problem? Would I also need a SATA -> USB adapter?

u/g-spot_adept · 1 pointr/audioengineering

high performance is one thing, but for me, drive reliability in the main thing by far - as far as reliability, nothing comes close to the Samsung-Seagate SpinPoint ST2000LM003 2 TB 2.5" SATA drive (notebook size) - if you ever had a drive fail and lose all of your data, then you will make reliability your main criteria as well - I think if you optimize your system otherwise, even 5400 rpm will be fine.

u/camjewell11 · 1 pointr/PS4Pro

I currently have this one installed in my PS4Pro. Works just fine and 2TB is plenty for now.


u/coma420 · 1 pointr/PS4

Are you looking for speed, or size? I personally recommend the Seagate 1TB SSHD for speed/size for value, as you get twice the standard drive size, and a big increase in speed. It automatically caches the most used files on the SSD portion of the drive, so that game files or OS files that are accessed frequently can be loaded the fastest. It increased boot speed and game load times on games you play frequently. Say you play a LOT of Destiny, it's going to become quite fast loading the assets you use a lot, like the Tower, in game worlds, things like that.
Amazon link

On the other end of the spectrum, you can go for sheer size, and maintain the same speeds you have now, and just never worry about filling up the drive until 5 years down the road. The similarly priced 2TB Spinpoint -

u/MrSoapbox · 1 pointr/PS4

I'm having a bit of trouble what to choose now.

I'm thinking about this:


But numerous reviews state that it fails, as well as a few saying it's reconditioned (Which I DO NOT want) though amazon fails to say.

Originally I was thinking about https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/External-Devices-Data-Storage/Seagate-Expansion-2TB-Portable-inch-Hard-Drive/B00TKFEE5S/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1483194498&sr=8-3&keywords=2tb+2.5 but amazon doesn't deliver to my area (strange as I've never seen this in the thousands of products I've bought)

I don't want to spend too much as it's only my PS4 but around £80 give or take 10 or so.

Actually seems hard to find any without a lot of negative reviews, though https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-Spinpoint-Internal-Drive-ST2000LM003/dp/B00MPWYLHO/ref=cm_cd_al_qh_dp_t doesn't have many but it doesn't have many reviews full stop.

u/DarkPenfold · 1 pointr/PS4

I've been using this drive for about a month now, with no beeps:

u/dopefish_lives · 1 pointr/photography

I do all my editing on a 4 year old 15inch macbook pro and it's absolutely solid for lightroom, photoshop and panorama stitching. If you buy a used non retina macbook, switching out the hard drive for an SSD and putting 16GB of ram in it will only cost you about $160. Get the core i7 and this set up will cost you around $800 and last you years.

With the older macbooks you can also switch out the CD drive with a 2TB hard drive and have all your photos locally, get a data doubler and a 2tb drive and you'll have yourself a beast of a machine with all the storage you need. They give you all the instructions, it's really quite simple

u/gzunk · 1 pointr/buildapc

I've used the Samsung M9T 2TB HDD without problems, it was the largest 2.5" drive I could find at the time, it might still be.

You could try the Seagate Momentus XT 1TB if you wanted an SSHD, or if you had a bit more money to spend, the old faithful Samsung 850 Evo

u/Ultimastar · 1 pointr/PS4Pro

Interesting. This is the one I have, not sure if the same. The one that actually arrived had Seagate branding, but I believe the are same company now. It's the same type I ordered for original PS4 (although that was branded as Samsung) and never had that beep.
If it is this, is it likely to cause issues?

u/Maximus77x · 1 pointr/PS4

So basically, Seagate Expansion, Seagate Backup Plus, or Samsung Seagate Momentus SpinPoint are all solid options?

If I got the Seagate expansion would it be the same drive as the Samsung -- I would just have to pop it out of the case?

Thanks for your help! This is an awesome answer, and it's one of the first times I have searched and actually found what I was looking for on the first thread.

u/fuhshizzle · 1 pointr/PS4

Sorta missed that part. My bad. If you do end up getting another drive, you can get a bare drive. It cost me more than the Backup Plus though.

Samsung Seagate Momentus SpinPoint ST2000LM003 2TB 2.5" SATA Notebook Hard Drive 9.5MM

u/MINTNIBS · 1 pointr/PS4

I upgraded before I installed anything on mine, a year and a half ago. I bought this one: Samsung Seagate 2TB Laptop HDD SATA III 2.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive 9.5MM (ST2000LM003) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I8O6OQ4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_myaCxbY5SD53Z , but people have also had good luck with others. PlayStation has a how-to right on the website: https://support.us.playstation.com/articles/en_US/KC_Article/Upgrade-PS4-HDD/ . I leave all my games installed, still have PLENTY of room.

Edit: Almost forgot. I had trouble for some reason finding the right version of the PS operating system. Had to try a few times. A quick Google search will find you other locations to download from if the one on the PS website isn't working for you.

Looking at the RVZ02, which only has room for two 2.5" drives. Would it be a good idea to buy a 2.5" HDD as a secondary drive? Would something like this fit in a standard 2.5" slot?

Here's how to do a hard drive upgrade. http://imgur.com/a/9giKA

This is the 2tb drive I bought and put into my PS4. https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Seagate-2-5-Inch-Internal-ST2000LM003/dp/B00I8O6OQ4/168-1195083-9490336?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0

My opinion is that it's not worth getting a 1tb drive, when you can get a 2tb for a little bit more. The 2tb drive I linked has about 1.76 or 1.77TB after installation and updates. As far as I know, 2tb is the largest drive you can fit into the PS4. If the one I linked is out of your budget, look around amazon. Just make sure the drive is 2.5 inch and read the user reviews to see if anyone has tried it on their PS4.

Funny you ask, I'm shopping around right now too. Have you decided on HDD or SSHD? Your options are basically 1TB SSHD or you can get a 2 TB HDD. Personally, I would prefer more space. It's on sale now $89 at Best Buy and Amazon. If you're gonna change out the HDD, you might as well go 2TB in my opinion.


Possible beeping issue with that one? Maybe this would be a good choice instead:

Its probably using MRSP of notebook HDDs and MRSP of SSDs. And the cheapest 2.5" HDD I see is 4.7c/gb. So only a x4-x5 price gap for the notebook market.

If you are only interested in a smaller amount of storage (500GB-1TB), its closer to x3-x5 the cost for SSD over a similar-sized HDD.

This was my primary backup drive, and yes, last I checked its speed was 5400rpm (https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Laptop-2-5-Inch-Internal-ST2000LM003/dp/B00I8O6OQ4). My OS is installed on my Samsung EVO 850 256GB SSD. My secondary backup drive is my 3.5" Seagate Barracuda Green 1TB HDD and that one is full of Steam games backups--it's still working. Sorry if you think I was shitposting, I just thought some people might be able to relate to how I'm feeling.

I'm based in the UK so you may need to find them on US Amazon or something, but these drives all fit the PS4.
Samsung M9T 2 TB

Seagate Spinpoint M9t

Alternatively you can buy an external hard drive that is the same as those mentioned above but is enclosed in a case. You can break the thing out of the case and then replace it with your old Hard Drive so you then have a 500Gb external hard drive too. Instruction on how to do that here

u/Serion_R · 1 pointr/PS4

Upgrading the Hard Drive really isn't that difficult.
All you need to do is buy the drive you want and make sure it is 9.5mm x 2.5inch (I recently got this - https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00I8O6OQ4/ref), next you'll want to make sure that any saves you have are backed up either on the cloud storage or an external drive. To save time later I would advise downloading the most up-to-date version of the PS4 OS from Sony's website (From here you'll want the "Fresh Install option - https://www.playstation.com/en-us/support/system-updates/ps4/), follow the instructions and save this to a USB with at least 1Gb of space.

(Note that you will need a small crosshead screwdriver for this)

Once you've got the drive all you need to do is slide the shiny part of the console away from the power indicator and you'll hear it unlock. From here you should notice a small screw that has the well known PS buttons on it, simply unscrew that and pull the drive out in its holder. You'll notice that there are 4 more screws holding the drive to the caddy, simply unscrew these and the drive will come out.

Now all you need to do is remove the packaging from your new drive, screw it into place on the caddy, re-insert the caddy and screw it into place with the "Sony Screw", reconnect the power/TV/Controller/USB, boot up the PS4 into Safe Mode (Hold power for ~7secs) and choose option 7. From here the drive will update from your USB and after that it'll be good for use, all you need to do is reinstall all those lovely games.

Hope this helps and if you have any problems just shoot me a message :)

This works so I don't see why not Here

Spend a few bucks more for the Seagate ST2000LM003 and you can get a warranty (not voided by opening the external case)
I installed this one last week.

u/Laker62282 · 1 pointr/PS4

Actually, you can buy a 2 TB HDD by itself. http://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Momentus-SpinPoint-ST2000LM003-Notebook/dp/B00I8O6OQ4/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=undefined&sr=1-1&keywords=ps4+hard+drive

It will be back in stock Aug. 22 (as of this posting). I purchased the same hard drive a couple of weeks ago because I didn't want to hassle with removing the hard drive from the external case (which would also void the warranty) and didn't care to use the external case to house the original PS4 hard drive. Getting the hard drive on its own is a little more expensive than the external option ($120 vs. $100) and doesn't give you a "free" external case, but if you're cool with that then it's an option. And who doesn't like options? :)

It's a standard laptop SATA hard drive.


Yeah it's in pounds. Sorry. Either way its a 2.5" HDD. Nothing special. Your fuckin welcome

u/Justpassingby1623 · 0 pointsr/PS4

Not sure about the second one you got but I got the Seagate 2TB Laptop HDD SATA III 2.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive 9.5MM (ST2000LM003) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I8O6OQ4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

For me it delivered in two days with Amazon prime. The installation took about 5 minutes probably 30 minutes total to format everything. The hardest part was having to download the firmware which was obviously really easy.

Things seems to load a lot faster and obviously I have a bunch of memory. The only problem I faced was for some reason one of my games wouldn't play anymore but played on my brothers console. Luckily the game was on sale on PSN for 20 bucks so I bought it again and gave the hard copy to my bro. Like I said I can't speak for the other harddrive but I really like the one I bought.

u/drsempaimike · -1 pointsr/PS4

I have a seagate 2tb solid state drive and I love it

Literally no lag at all in the menus/ UI.
And now I don't have to delete save date when I buy a new game!

Edit: I may not actually have a SSD upon further inspection. Sorry for misleading you! I asked for this: http://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Momentus-SpinPoint-ST2000LM003-Notebook/dp/B00I8O6OQ4 for Christmas and assumed it was a SSD. I suppose I'm still not very computer-literate

You can buy a 2 TB HDD for PS4 for $112, or a 2TB upgrade kit in $120
If you don't mind to do some hand work, you can buy a 2TB external hard drive under $100 and remove the shell to get the drive
These are available over a year ago
