Decent price that. Just slower than other NVMe drives that cost more.

Much slower? Looking for something for a ps4

Scrap that ^

Just realised it’s not compatible

Thanks, canceled my previous order, saved 2 pounds
That's a very good price.

You want a regular SSD, but even then, I think the improvement over a spinner is marginal in a PS4 if memory serves.
Crazy price. Never thought I'd see the day a m.2 is cheaper than sata

Yep, it doesn't help much tbh. Some games may get a noticeable boot time upgrade but not really worth it. On a pc it helps significantly because it has loads of applications and files that can be read faster.
I have in my system a 1TB SanDisk SSD sata 3. And a 512 NVMe sabrent rocket and now I've just brought this as it's a crazy price so nice 2TB system with SSD's

I thought the PS4 Bus speed wasn't all that? Whereas a PC with SATA was a more recent version?

Possibly conflating my tech and what I've read, but I can see a SATA SSD being a bit quicker used internally; not much point external on PS4 as they're USB2 rated I think...? Again, might well be wrong!
£65 for me?

You sure can. Just make sure you have enough available PCIE lanes. I’ve used this one: amazon.co.uk/dp/…1GY with great success plugged into a full length PCIE slot.

USB3, also does make quite a difference. old and slim PS4's are SATA2, PS4 Pro is SATA3, but since you're rarely doing a linear read, it's all random reads loading game data and uncompressing files to RAM, so it's not too different between the two machines, but still much faster than mechanical. Most games I've tried, GTA, Destiny 2 and such, 40 second load times become 20.

Even in PC NVMe is kinda pointless for games over SATA. Yes they have much much faster linear read and write, but barely faster random reads. Game benchmarks show there's usually less than a second in it. I mean if you need the read and write speeds for transferring files or something, yeah sure. But if it's for games then SATA drives in either 2.5" or M.2 form will do you about the same for less money for the same capacity.

I suppose in the years to come when CPU's process the uncompressed data faster, NVMe will be worth it for games. But right now? Meh. Unless it's a good price like this was.

That's what I love about the internet. Someone always comes along with a fully fleshed answer. Never a question of if, always a case of when.

(Glad I was barking up the right lamppost)

You want something like this for your PS4: amazon.co.uk/gp/…QT5

You are limited by the bus speed of the system so a fully fledged SSD really isn't worth the cost/performance gain at all. I did try a spare SSD (think it was a 256GB) I had in my PS4 Pro for a few weeks just to see and even then I really didn't notice much difference at all tbh. Something like that SSHD hybrid personally I think is ideal, it stores the most used data on the small flash module it has for faster access so I find booting and the home screen in general is a lot snappier and no delay when opening/closing or switching between apps etc. Plus it's backed by a 5 year warranty which is better than most SSD's or og HHD's which is a nice bonus. Hope this helps peace

Depends what you’re measuring. My HD is noisy and loud, so looking for something that’s quieter and cooler.
Though, I’ve read reports that it is actually a good upgrade.

Thanks for that. Not interested in a hybrid. It’s SSD or nothing... Waiting for 500g around £30 then I’ll jump. Planning to upgrade to PS5 this year anyway, so not desperate, but ps4 is getting noisy (even after stripping it down and replacing the thermal paste)
I think the fan also needs replacing...

Fair enough but you'll be paying through the nose for almost no performance gains. As a said I tried an SSD in my Pro and there wasn't any noticeable difference between that and the Firecuda SSHD. I found I quickly filled up the og 1TB HDD and kept having to delete stuff so having the capacity is also nice. Cheapest decent 2.5" 2TB SSD I can find is the Crucial MX500 for just over £200

Edit: Oh another tip for cooling, won't be everyone's cup of tea, I use a small thick cooling mat on top of my Pro, can't remember what it was actually for originally tbh but it's just the right size. No idea what's in it but it's naturally cold to the touch (does get warm after a few hours of gaming) and as it's malleable it makes good contact with the whole top of the console and is very effective at taking heat away. Since using it the fan barely ever ramps up so makes for a much better gaming experience

Interesting re the mat. I’ll take a look. Question that immediately comes to mind though, is whether the mat affects the heat sensor?
I have the OG PS4 with OG HD, so performance gain will be more prominent. Like I said, if I can get 480g + for under £30 I’ll jump. Otherwise, I’ll just wait for the PS5. I figure at sub £30 I can’t complain...

Yes and yes.

Install it in the top m.2 slot above the first pci-e slot. Once you boot up it shows in the bios as a normal storage drive so when you install windows you can choose to install to it.

Easy as that..
