PSA. Buy this for backward compatible titles on PS5 and Xbox.

Digital Foundry found out, SATA drives like these give almost equivalent load times and gaming performance to the internal drives.
I have one, I don't know if it is faulty but it's utterly terrible. Here is what I wrote on another forum:

They're (dramless ssds) garbage on account of having owned 2, one which was a no name chinese brand that I got dirt cheap and refunded on the premise that it was faulty. The other is a sandisk SSD Plus 480GB which I still (unfortunately) own and bought thinking it would be as good as the old 120GB Sandisk SSDPlus in my laptop not knowing that Sandisk have done the old bait & switch and updated a product with worse internals.

I've watched the link (hardware unboxed video) and it just benchmarks loading times which they're fine for sometimes but then at times they are really really really bad at. They are incredibly inconsistent depending on whether the drive knows where the data is. Linus explains it quite well:



Especially if the game streams in data post load like GTA V and Modern Warfare. I've been shot with invisible guns, waited up to a minute for a camo to load, driven off the map in GTA V into San Andreas and experienced stuttering like a powerpoint presentation. Even on HDDs those games don't do that (I bought the drive so I no longer had to play the games on the HDD).

Here is a quick AS-SSD benchmark I ran on the barely used, mostly empty Sandisk compared to the Samsung 830 which I've heavily used for 8 years. The sequential is fine but it just broke down on the later tests.

42198623.jpg

I also loaded up GTA V whilst writing this post just to see what would happen. I am gonna link it here but though the music playing in game is not exactly forum friendly (also my driving is garbage as I was looking at task manager) youtu.be/T7z…jQ8 - those stutters are not just the recording plus just before the jump you can see the low res geometry of the rock. Sometimes it doesn't hang, sometimes it hangs non stop for the entire session.

I just don't want anyone else to make the same mistake I did, pay the few quid extra for one with DRAM.

The internal drives of tue PS4..? So it would be equally slow as tue HDD? Sorry I'm a bit confused Was looking to slap one of these into my ps4pro
Not obvious as there's a few variants, does this one have DRAM?

This will speed up a PS4 PRO.

Thanks for your thorough reply but do we know for sure this one is DRAMless? It is so hard to get actual specs and Sandisk has so many variants to confuse the consumer. Your benchmark show some shocking access times compared to the Samsung, what the heck???

I wouldn't say it was useless, that would be really unfair. I think that if it is DRAMless than you would try to keep this for storage only and mostly light usage (which is for most people). Those who do PC gaming and video editing should look elsewhere.
I was gonna put this in my PS4 pro to keep me happy till PS5 is back and a bit cheaper.

It's priced and behaves like a DRAMless drive but without opening up the actual drive you recieve it's not possible to know cause manufacturers like to change the internals without changing the product name.

Ugh, I find that to be very bad for consumers and there should be rules against this as it could be mis-selling!!
Ive got a wide variety of SSDs in several pcs and laptops including sandisk
Not one of them has let me down in any way.
according to Ebuyer its

This is what I've done. M2 stores my files for editing + games, and have a cheaper 1TB for extra storage. This looks ideal.
Would this been ok as a upgrade for my laptop internal sata drive

I had the similar issue before only used around 1.5 years
Can I connect this to my android phone easily to put files on and off it?
Could I get one of these and easily stick it in my PS4?

I've still got the stock 300gig hdd in mine and want to get a bigger drive.
Never fitted an ssd. Can I replicate existing hdd so I don't loose current programmes and licences?

Such a good price. I’m even tempted to upgrade my 5K iMac now
