    Already ran out of space?! WTF Lol

    Hey guys,

    Just picked up TLOU on PS4 and its takes up 50GB. Aparently that was the final straw and my PS4 had enough lol. What are some of the best hard drives out there for me to pick up?

    Thanks

    Well, right now 2-3 Tb harddrives are pretty expensive. I also wanted to get bigger HD as well for my ps4. I read good things about the Seagate hybrid drive. Its 1tb and some people believes it runs as fast as 7200rpm drives and its about 90-100 dollars average.

    2TB is the max limit a PS4 will accept & read. The hybrid drive is great @ first but if you have 1.5TB or 2TB @ 5400rpm it usually out performs the Hybrid due to having some cache & more platters to spin while pulling data from. I have a 1.5TB from Fry Electronics(here in Cali) for $99, when I switched from the hybrid to this my loads & performance actually increased. Shoulda just bought a 2TB drive for $20 more($119) when it was on sale instead but oh wells. Also make sure to NOT get a HDD that is made by Seagate- ie.Toshiba, HGST(Stock provider of PS4 HDD), or even Western Digital as Seagate has the highest HDD/Hybrid failure rate of anyone out there.

    No. 2tb is not the limit. 2tb is the max 2.5in drive right now but I have a 4tb 3.5 drive externally on my ps4. I have seen up to 8tb.

    BTW: WD and seagate are the same company and is not toshiba. Have been for years.

    What's your thought on a WD black Scorpio blue, it comes with 120 gb of flash memory and it's 1tb. It's $99 dollars which is a good price when you think about it. I guess what I'm asking if you are a gamer looking at this from a performance over cost and vice versa, what would be your preferred hybrid drives of choice?

    i think either you had a cheap hybrid or something is wrong, my hybrid drive is 7200rpms and loads quick as ****, like MLB The Show on my Hybrid takes 45 secs to load the game(meaning to actually start playing from accepting the lineup, with the 5400rpm it took well over 3 mins. i put in a 1tb and havent ran out of space yet, but when i do ill be deleting games i wont and havent played in a while. this is the one i highly recomend Seagate Solid State Hybrid ST1000LM014 1TB Laptop Hard Drive - Newegg.com , its 1tb with 8gb SSD and a 64mb cache, which is what the high end 5400rpm drives use. and its a seagate which is one of two Hard drive companies i trust, the other is Samsung. its fast i love it, only 100$ for a hybrid drive is a decent price. Tested: PlayStation 4 Hard Drive vs. SSD vs. Hybrid Drive - YouTube a video of a test done with all 3 types of hard drives, they recomend the seagate as its faster then the spinning but more cost efficent then SSD

    since i cant edit my post for some reason, Mikey i have in the 15 years working in the pc hardware industry only had 3 seagates die on me, in that same time i have had so many Western Digitals just die but i love Samsungs cant think of one that died. Seagate and WD are the same along with HITACHI, which WD just bought in 2011, i do agree to never buy a toshiba HDD they are the ford pintos of the hard drive world. Its a personal preference of course but i have found Seagate hybrid drives to be great, have one in my ps3 for a few years now, its a older model that only had 4gbs SSD and 16mb cache but still no failures there got the same drive in my laptop as the one in my ps4 lol they are just solid drives in my opinion never had a issue(knock on wood)

    ok i hate i cant edit my post when another thought comes to me later, Mikey if your thinking on seagate is due to that blackblaze whatever company saying they have a high failure rate they are using Barracuda drives made for desktops, they are lower power, high capacity with 1tb per platter disk they literally are cramming to much info on the platter, the failure is coming from that high capacity per platter, i freaking hate the Barracuda drives. matter of fact last year they had the second lowest failure rate out of all tested

    Ok ok I get the point guys lol, I still like my HDD & haven't had an issue since changing from a hybrid. I'd say its all a matter of preference. & I know you're in to computer tech but if you know about Seagate then you know the company is located & was founded here in California & that Samsung basically sold every part of their competing business to them except SSD's(for now) which will become Seagate after 2017 anyways. My friend worked for them nearly 10yrs till this yr(took a high paying job) in the plant & as an Exec, so when he tells me WD or HGST(WD Company) is a better more reliable product(till they fully absorb Samsung's Disk business) it speaks volumes to me. No intention of sounding rude either & I'm sure you have some very valid points as the Barracuda line is just not a favorite of mine either.

    WD has some great drives the Black line is good, but the Red series are great, i have very little experience with HGST personally so i cant say that they are a bad line but being they were taken over by WD and the prices for them have fallen im just assuming WD is going to let them die on the vine, or use them as a low end brand. Everyone has thier own personal preference to pretty much everything, and when it comes to storage ive been burnt a few times by WD the last drive i had was a WD Black drive and it screwed me....HARD lost all my school research and the college paper i was writing when that drive died....hence my hatred towards WD.

    recomendations to anyone buying a new drive for thier ps4,

    make sure its not thicker then 9.5mm if it is it wont fit that is the max thickness for the ps4
    more cache the better, 32mb is good 64mb is better try to stay away from 8mb cache HDD they just are older style and slower by alot.

    Sata 6gb/s transfer speed, some reports say the ps4 is only capable of 3gb/s but the 6gb/s work and from what i have seen of the motherboard i wouldnt be shocked if a firmware update took advantage of the 6gb/s in the future. The hardware is capable of it but the software i guess isnt...yet

    Personally i like hybrids but you can go 5400rpms or 7200rpms, 7200rpms is theoretically faster, i havent seen a speed test to say on the ps4. on laptops it definatly is faster though. one reason i wont recomend a 7200rpm drive is they produce slightly more heat.

    my personal drive recomendations

    Hybrid
    Seagate Solid State Hybrid ST1000LM014 1TB Laptop Hard Drive - Newegg.com

    SSD(for those with endless budgets)
    go samsung or Intel NEVER buy OCZ they are just horrible they will fail on you like crazy your looking at 300+$ for a 500gb ssd

    5400rpm HDD
    Amazon.com: Western Digital 1 TB WD Red SATA III 5400 RPM 16 MB Cache Bulk/OEM NAS Hard Drive WD10JFCX: Computers & Accessories if you dont want a hybrid this is my personal recomendation its the RED series drive
