Perfect for upgrading PS4 hard drive. Have been looking at this for a while and this is the cheapest I've seen. Looks like my PS4 slim is getting a long needed upgrade!

True. Too bad I can't monetise those naughty pictures. (embarrassed) Read recently that Google let third parties read your emails ... that is disgusting! So I had to get a domain name & set up email server. Money I didn't want to spend.


That's ok too but then they have the full right to go through all your data & laugh/publish all the naughty pics of you & your girlfriend in your knickers. You lose your privacy rights!


WD only released its hybrid drives in 2013 so only 5 years ago. But I get your point. The first gen Momentus XT drives did have a few issues and there were several firmware updates for it (which many users didn't do). So many early drives did have problems, but that is to be expected with early adopters. My 8 year old drive still works fine. Performance has moved on somewhat in that time.


Well then that's unfortunate. Although this is a consumer drive. Happy with mine. Won't lose any sleep if the games on it go kapoot. Easy enough to get back. You'll see differently once you learn the hard way.

Agree on all points, and want to add probably better to also get one with pen support in my son's case.. May be a factor for other parents to consider when buying thier children a PC for university


One of the most important things when buying a laptop for a Uni student is getting one that's reasonably thin and light. Otherwise, lugging around a hulking laptop along with textbooks all day will drive him/her nuts and they probably won't tell you about it so as not to cause offence! The other 2 things worth looking about for are: - good battery life (desks in libraries, lecture halls aren't necessarily adjacent to power sockets and you can't realistically leave a laptop unattended whilst charging). - a decent keyboard (for obvious reasons!) I'd give this Lenovo a big swerve if you're looking for a laptop for a student.


Thanks for the suggestion, though I'm looking for 15.6 screen ideally. I don't need it till new job in a month or so, I'm just keeping an eye out atm (prime day was annoyingly bad)


Hi, this any good? I think it's perfect for uni. Long battery life and quality IPS display with touch function.


Lets just agree to disagree. I have DDR3 in my main PC which I use for gaming still. Yes it is sufficient. However I bought my RAM 4-5 years ago. If I was buying a new laptop now for around £400 I would expect to get DDR4 RAM. An I3 with 4GB RAM and a 500GB normal hdd (not sshd) would be sufficient for what most people will use this laptop for. However the point still stands that it is around £400 and therefore one should expect budget-mid range specs but still the latest generation. 7think7 did not say the technology was useless, that was your own judgement. I agree with them that for this price you should expect DDR4 that is all. Don't be so quick to criticise perfectly valid comments.

They're all pricey, though not quite as pricey as the Razer! :o And no real custom build alternatives available yet, so you're kind of limited to choosing from the pre-built options. I'm currently leaning towards the Alienware 13. That gorgeous OLED screen is calling my name <3


It is so funny the "lol gud 4 minesweeper" comments on these kind of laptops, like a GTX 1060 is no better than some crappy Intel integrated GPU. PCMR has never rung more true than it does these days.


I haven't, no. Now that you've mentioned it, I'll take a look. Razer is too expensive atm, I mean I could pick it up but is it really worth it when other alternatives are available...


Only game this would be useful for is counter strike in which it would be quite balanced between GPU and CPU. I'd rather it just had 12gb ram and put a 1070 and less SSD based storage.

Well, nobody whines here, we just having a heated debate 😄


oh man just let this whining go


Just trying to tell people that this laptop is not going to keep up with new modern titles for long.


In a nutshell it depends on what you going to play. No for open world games, strategy games and to a lesser extent some online games (I.e. Battlefield). All other games should be fine.


Erm, how about the fact that I referenced a bunch of tests that show weakness of 4 cores without HT and I did mention quite a few AAA CPU intensive games that stomps i5. Here you go another example: Comparison of 7600k vs 7700k at 4.8GHz. They are from the same architecture and with pretty much the same IPC (overclocked RAM and 2 extra Mb of cashe are not making huge difference). 7300hq is roughly 37% slower than 7600k at 4.8 GHz, while 7700hq is 30% slower than 7700k. Watch video and extrapolate from those results, unless you don't know A GCSE math 😄

May I know how do you get 78.97? 1.05% ex VAT of 79.72 = 0.69755 79.72 - 0.70 = 79.02


I can tell you with 100% certainty that 7,200 rpm drives are significantly faster at game loading times than a 5,400rpm drive. So if you use it for game storage then you will want a 7,200 rpm drive.


Now £78.97 - 1.05% TopCashback also possibel.


Compared to an SSD they're all slow. I'm not sure what the point of 7200rpm drives is these days. Whoop de doo slightly faster but still slow sequential throughput and slightly more but still poor IOPS. In the meantime more heat, power and noise. Seriously though 7200rpm drives will be about 33% better on IOPS (the thing that really matters for desktop use). Meanwhile an SSD will be at least 1,000% better on IOPS.


Is 5400 not really Slow? 7200 is the Standard

cheers guys. might just got for an old style one while I wait for SSD's to get cheaper


This drive is an SSHD, not a SSD. Big difference both in terms of performance and price. The H in SSHD stands for hybrid. It has 8GB flash + 2TB HDD which is managed transparently by the drive itself so you won't see multiple partitions. It's a SATA drive, so yes.


It's not solid state, it has 8GB of NAND cache. Yes, it's a SATA drive so can be used in a PC, though you may need a bay adapter as it's 2.5".


can this be used on an internal pc? seems weird that a 2TB Solid state is only £80

Thank you. You are correct that SSD+hardisk offers a better solution, which is what I use in the main. However we do have two machines with a compromise using hybrid SSD.


What you say is correct. These are designed for home use and in some circumstances they may be the best solution. Overall though I still maintain an SSD and a hard disk are a better solution. For only £10 (SSD plus hard drive) in total you will get something guaranteed faster in all circumstances and will be more reliable in the long term.


I believe I have just shone a light to an incorrect application of key factual knowledge (rather than a difference in opinion in my long comment just above). The key facts used incorrectly are summarised as: IT requirements were used for home requirements, in a nutshell.

I agree. I was looking at this but double the storage for an extra £15 is a no brainer really especially since it would predominately become my new Steam drive and SSHD is unlikely to have much of an impact on a drive just filled with games and the occasional video file. That and I already have AC Origins.


Hybrid drives don't work like that. The flash NAND portion acts as a cache, no games or other data get installed to the flash part of the disk. Algorithms determine which data is temporarily stored on the NAND to speed up access, this portion written to and erased multiple times in normal usage.


That's what she said


Hybrid drives are not so useful for gaming consoles, the SSD section is fairly small (typically 8-32GB depending on the drive), so you'd only end up with either a small portion of each game on there or one game entirely on the SSD and the rest on the HDD, depending on how the file system works for each console. For a PC/Mac, it's more useful as the more commonly used files (operating system, common apps etc.) will be migrated onto the SSD section, and you'll notice the performance increase for those items only.


I'm not sure why anyone would buy this drive. For bulk storage, another £10 or so buys you something with double the capacity. For applications, a 256GB will perform vastly better, and cost around £10 less. I appreciate that this has some NAND built into it to act as a SSD-like cache, but it's slow NAND, and there's only 8GB of it, so with the best caching algorithms and most repeatable usage patterns in the world, it won't do much good.

These are great for the PS4. Speeds up some stuff and games you play regularly load faster. It's no ssd but the next best thing.


As a storage device it's fine but don't let the 'hybrid' moniker fool you - they claim it's somewhere in between a pure HDD and SSD but it's much closer to a hard disk and has all the extra bugs/nuances that you probably hadn't thought of.


Consumer 4K resolution is actually 3840 × 2160, what you're quoting is DCI 4K resolution which is the motion picture standard. Either way they're calling it 4K based on the horizontal rather than vertical resolution, so yeah it is daft but it's all marketing.


I totally forgot this was going in deal, it was hinted in prime day as well.


Interesting, shame they made the process so difficult, would have thought they would have learned their lesson from the 360 days. Not even like they sell internal hdd replacements so no benefit from it being so tricky to them either. Still might give it a go if these ever come down to this price again.

back up in price now.


Just the usual slight whoosh sound of a hard drive. Not particularly clicky when seeking either.


Seems I'm a bit too late to the party. It has now gone up by a fiver after I decided I wanted to go for it. Not sure if I should just buy it at Amazon now for the same price as it currently is at box (£85) or wait and see if it goes back down to £80 on box. What sold me on this was this thread: I'm not much of a gamer but I have started to dabble with video editing in 4k. The size of 4k files are pretty big so having them on my SSD is not really an option. As this drive isn't much more than a standard 2TB I would rather get this for the possible improvements in speed that it might provide me as it does take me several days of editing for 1 video so that means reopening the same files several times for a few days. One thing I want to know is how loud these drives are. I used to have HDDs back in the day but after having less time at home and having a higher income, I bought a 1TB SSD for my machine as I decided I don't download/store as many things now and preferred the silence of a SSD. Things have now changed though as I have mentioned; I have been doing some 4k video editing with a bitrate of 100Mbps which is roughly 45GB per hour so my SSD will fill up way too quickly.

I don't doubt that, as you use it the dashboard being a commonly accessed item will buffer into the SSD portion well, so it will make the dash quicker. And if you are constantly playing the same game then perhaps that too, but in regard to fan speeds I expect no reduction. When playing intensive games, the like that will get the fans up to full speed, you will still be accessing the HDD portion regularly, so as far as I can see there would be no noticeable reduction in heat generation.


This drive is way better than the stock drive. It feels faster just using the console in general.


Are you talking original PS4 and have you already replaced the stock HDD with another? I have an original PS4 and had upgraded the stock 500GB to a 2TB, specifically the drive out of this external: which is a 5400rpm drive (the same as the stock). However with the 2TB installed I did notice random increases in fan speed for short intervals after gaming for a while. Now that the PS4 supports external storage, I have reverted back to stock and use an external drive and haven't noticed it since. I had read online about it and several people found the same when upgrading the internal drive to a larger HDD (no reports for SSHD but then fewer people had done that upgrade at the time), the fix that reportedly worked for some was to adjust the tightness of a screw. To be honest though if you are getting random increases in fan speed in an original PS4 and have upgraded the HDD, I would try reverting back to stock first with an external drive (or put your upgraded drive in a caddy to be the external) to save money investing in this as I can't see it will further reduce the fan speed over a stock drive.


I have mine in a PS4 slim and it's pretty quiet. Barely hear the fans, but then again I never heard it with the stock drive as I replaced the drive straight away.


Could anyone tell me if this would have any impact on making the fans on the PS4 quieter? Obviously I know it has nothing to do with the fans, but by allowing the PS4 to access things quicker it theoretically shouldn't have to work as hard for as long and perhaps won't overheat as much?
