    There’s a good article here for those wondering about slower than recommended speed for ps5:


    Basically, this will be fine for ps5. The heat sink thing is a piece of cake to do. I’m rubbish at DIY but was less than 20 minutes to buy and install a new SSD for my PS5. I’ve got so many games my 1 tb is nearly full now, hence stalking these posts lol

    Anyone have any ideas what speed you could get on one of these in a usb c enclosure? I assume most of those would be 3.1 unless you spent a bit?

    Most enclosures (unless you find a thunderbolt one) are what is now known as USB 3.2 Gen 2×1 (previously USB 3.1 Gen 2) - theoretical bandwidth limit is 10Gb/s (gigabit). In real life, given overheads and converting from bits to bytes, you're looking at an upper practical limit of around 900MB/s - quick search for benchmarks of off-the-shelf portable SSDs suggests performance in the 700-800MB/s range. This all assumes you're using a 10Gb/s capable port - standard USB 3 would be around half that.

    Long and short of it is, you won't get anywhere close to what even PCIe 3.0 NVMe drives are capable of in a typical enclosure - thunderbolt enclosures do exist, but are incredibly expensive, and you obviously need thunderbird ports to use them. That's not to say enclosures are worthless - they're still plenty fast enough for a lot of use cases - but a Gen 4 drive is overkill for enclosure use.

    If you know a student you can get 15% off at the WD store. Think they may even be a 10% welcome offer too for signing up with an email . Was delivered to me via UPS so was happy with that.

    I'm building a new PC later this year. Should I wait in case the price drops further?

    If you wait you’ll never build it (as the saying goes). SSDs are at an all time low, some speculation price may increase once supply drops. It’s a good price but you may get it a few pounds less if you wait. Or better, if it’s going to be months could wait and get a fresher drive

    I know that the speeds of this are a bit lower than those requested by Sony for the ps5 but I was wondering whether it would still work with it being so close. Anyone know if there's any issues playing ps5 games straight off it?

    Yes it works. Will need to buy a heatsink though (edited)

    Reviews well. Bought one of these this morning for a new build PC.
