Fasted 2TB hard drive for my PS4?


Recommended Posts

Yeah...I don't think I can last with my 500GB Hard Drive, already around 235GB left. Can anyone give me the fasted 2TB hard drive compatible with the PS4 with no failure?

Well, you need to know that the PS4 uses a 2.5 inch SATA hard drive, which is similar to a hard drive found in a laptop. If you're looking for speed improvements, find a 7200 RPM drive. The PS4 uses a 5400 RPM drive standard.


This one has great reviews and seems to be the most liked choice out of the others that are available. Not a 7200 RPM drive, but it's still a good choice.

Their is currently a sale on Newegg for a 2TB 7200 RPM hard drive that is priced around $75. It has around 64 MB of buffer cache which should be more than enough. If you want to go in the hundred dollar territory... their is a 3 TB one that is 7200 RPM as well. $25 more and you can get a 4 TB, which I find a bit overkill as 2 TB should be more than adequate :p.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the PS4 allows a max storage amount of 2TB. Can anyone confirm? That drive wont fit into the PS4, as well.

Well, your'e both right and wrong (regarding the drive being able to fit). The Nyko Data Bank allows up to 2 TB (just as much as the PS4 itself, but adding 2 TB+ may make some features have issues), while adding support for 3.5" drives. 3.5'' drives tend to be cheaper and at the price range ($30-$40), you really are only sacrificing aesthetics, a choice that OP would have to make. Personally, I would get the Nyko Bank and then get a 2 TB which should be, like I said, more than enough for this generation.


My fault for rushing that post however, OP may have not known about the Nyko Bank.

Convert to PCMasterRace with its unlimited possibilities. You don't need that inferior low-class pile of potato dirt that can barely run Pacman.



Just kidding XD



With faster RPM, games will load faster like GTAV and other really big games like 50+ GB's. Just be carefull not to go over 2TB as explained above.

Vik, I don't see why he'd need to buy a whole new "data bank" product, which is $40, and then buy another hard drive for $45+. Care to explain how I was wrong? :blink: I was right in the sense that a 3.5 inch hard drive definitely wont fit in a PS4, and that's when you suggested a completely different third party product. OP claimed he wanted speed and more storage, which can be easily found in an SSD or a mechanical 2.5 inch drive. The choice is up to him, but I don't see the need for the data bank unless he already has a 1TB+ desktop drive.

I got a Samsung drive for the PS4, 2TB drive that cost about £60, it's working perfectly and as long as you pick one under 9.5mm thin it won't need anything external adding to fit it.


They are on Amazon, search "PS4 2TB"
