I don't remember to be honest I bought it years ago, it was from a busted open USB drive. I googled it and it seems to be just what happens with that drive when paired with a PS4 for some reason. It's lasted ages though, it only happens now and then and there's been no data loss or anything sinister like that it's just... weird.

I had the same thing with a stock hdd in a new PS4 making noises when doing background updates, seemed to stop as soon as I replaced it and put it in an old PS3
Can't wait for for next gen consoles with SSD drives installed as a standard and not limited like they are on PS4 and xbone.

Yeah and Microsoft should allow for easy upgrades to higher capacity drives.

I mean they *should* do that rather than just say use external storage if you need more.

Ahh my mistake, I thought you knew something I didn't

The fact that it has a CFExpress slot makes me think that the internal PCI 4 storage will not be upgradable.

Someone did mention something about that port might provide direct access for an SSD stick to plug straight into the board. Not sure if that's true though

Yeah it's a CFExpress slot.

Isn't that just as good if we can add storage to it?

It's only capable of half the speed of the internal storage but I doubt that will be an issue as it's still very fast. The biggest problem is the cost of CF Express cards - amazon.co.uk/s?k…s_2

Although it is possible that if the Xbox uses it, it will bring the costs way down as at the moment it's only used by professionals.

Thanks, I didn't know that. They're talking about SSD speeds of 5-7gbs on next gen and used as virtual ram. I'm not sure how this would work if the speeds are halfed

I'm guessing the use of virtual RAM (via StoreMi I assume) will be limited to the internal storage.
Great deal.
