Will this work in a standard ps4?

No this one is a 3.5" so won't physically fit. You would need the 2.5" version.
Would this be any good for an 8 camera HD CCTV DVR? Was thinking of going for a 256GB SSD as it would be much quieter a couple of weeks of recording at the most.

I have this drive, haven't noticed and speed difference from my old 7200rpm HDD. It's only my game drive though. Beware, the 2.5" version only has 5400rpm HDD portion.

Free game codes are available until they run out, each retailer was only given a certain amount, redeemable until February with Ubisoft.
I bought the non AC:O version of this hdd last week for £55, Origins will be at £20 soon enough I believe. Not bad if you can’t wait though.

It will work but its unnecessary, it will not use the SSD aspect at all because it will just be recording 99% of the time.

Standard Hard drive should be sufficient as 8 cameras is not a lot, but a surveillance hard drive would be your best option.

I purchased this package back when it was just over £80, so this is a good price for this hard drive and game.

Looking at upgrading to a 16 x IP camera DVR soon. Would these still be suitable?

You need a WD Purple Hard Drive.
A regular hard drive will not be able to cope and burn out within 6-12 months.
An SSD would be silent but modern hard drives are not really noisy anyway but if you've got the funds and the capacity is sufficient.

5400 vs 7200 doesn't "seem" to matter too much for this type of drive. I have the 2.5" and it is definitely faster if you are regularly using the same files as they are stored in the small SSD cache.

the drive is 5400rpm, it says it on the sticker when it arrives, I bought …the drive is 5400rpm, it says it on the sticker when it arrives, I bought the 2.5" version of this 2tb drive last week for £69.99 as it still is on their website. What's interesting is there is a separate page for the same drive that includes the 'free' Creed: Origins offer but the drive is around £17 more expensive (what). So i notice the promotion includes all 2tb FireCuda drives bought BEFORE 31/12/2017. So i buy the 2tb 2.5" for £69.99 from amazon. When it inevitably arrives with no free game code i get on to amazon support, who were genuinely confused when i pointed this error out to them in the pricing with the offer and the 'free' game. I ask for my code (which they don't have and couldn't provide), so as compensation for their own silliness and oversight they refunded 40% of the cost of the drive, meaning i got it for like £37. Make of that story what you will and godspeed


You got barracuda not firecuda, different specs.

where from?
I still keep looking at this technology, but it doesn't seem to offer any real advantages over conventional drives, It has to make a guess at which files you're going to want, and load them into the SSD prior to you asking for them. It doesn't always get it right. Then there's the issue of how long that memory is actually going to last and what happens when the SSD side of it fails, after all there's only a limited number of re-writes an SSD can have.

I think finding a drive with a larger buffer is probably the way forward.

Yep. WD purples are good for something like 32 1080p cameras.
I think they have a higher tier purple that supports double the number of cameras
Doesn't this not say: "
  • FREE game code only when purchasing from Amazon UK. Not available from third-party sellers. Offer ends 31st Dec 2017. Terms & Conditions apply."

So seems the code offer is expired and you won't get the game?

If you are predictable, like you load the same OS more than once, they 'guess' very well. The SSD portion should outlast the other 'side' by a significant margin. Check out therevisionist.org/rev…le/
Did Amazon email you the code as I'm still waiting?

You're not getting any code mate. It's only valid for purchases up until 31st December. Even for those purchases people did not get any codes, but if you talk to Cs they maybe able to sort you out with a discount perhaps.
