I was referring more to Gen 3 vs Gen 4.


I don't think was ever top of the line considering the sn750 came out before it among other faster drives


Excellent wee SSD, I have one myself. No longer top-of-the-line but very hard to pass up at this price. Heat added.


Gosh. Cheaper and cheaper. I got one of these for my OS, and it's great.

I'm pretty sure the they have said the PS5 will only use Gen4 NVME for PS5 games, this isntt even pushing the max for Gen 3 so dont think it will be an option.


Patch isn't out yet This drive wouldn't meet the ps5's speed requirement anyway


Will this work in ps5? Anyone know when sony are releasing the patch to use these?

SMR are worse for writing a large ammount and data, and for RAIDs and other multi drive setups ( like NAS). This is CMR, which is better.


That's good for me isn't it? I need it to be on pretty much all day reading and writing


It seems that all purple ar CMR.

Yeah I agree it saves time compared to downloading again. I was just saying that the bottleneck probably isn't on the Microsoft/Sony server side.


Sure. It's a long time so storing a game on the USB hard disk and moving it as required saves quite a bit of time compared to downloading again.


200Mbps = 25MBps right? 25MB * 60 seconds = 1500MB 1500MB * 60 minutes = 90,000MB 90,000 / 1024 = 87.9GB (87.890625 to be exact) Surely it's not possible to download 100GB in an hour at that speed? So I would expect a 100GB game to take over an hour to download


Less than 24h from being dispatched (with free delivery - took 1d to dispatch)


How long did it take to arrive?
