I've ordered this....https://www.dabs.com/products/1tb-red-sata-6gb-s-16mb-2-5--hard-drive-8YPN.html
I'm at least in the position of being able to put the originall HDD back in if it goes wrong again. This is very very poor from Sony IMO.
Do any of you think it would be worth putting a hybrid drive in?
Thanks for that think I will look at going for size of hard drive rather than speeda few people have put the "hybrib" sshd in ,
you will get a fast loading time in when starting up and loading games , but to be honest it's only by a few seconds , so for an extra £40 on a standard drive ,only to save a few seconds , in my eyes seems like a waste of money .
It seems strange you can get a HD out of an external HD Drive cheaper than buying one 'nude'.
I put a 2tb in yesterday used the segate from above was hard getting it out of its case with out damaging the case wanted to keep it to put the 500g drive in
All in all glad I have done it have 1700g to use after firmware install
Reinstalling all the games is taking its time though
thank you ,be warned about samsung extrenal HDD's like Samsung M3 Slimline 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive - Black: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories
On some of these the HDD are native usb 3.0 like this one i picked up thinking i'd get a samsung 2tb M9T for my PS4. there are no sata connectors, just USB3.0
I don't think this is the case with seagate yet but still. be warned!!
iv just ordered from these ,Well i have other uses for mine, I opened the case pretty clean too.
Looks like I need to track down a segate backup plus version, I dare not try the seagate expansion 2.5" drive now I know that there are native usb3.0 drives in the wild.
this is the dive i used from amazon Seagate STDR2000201 2TB Backup Plus USB 3.0 2.5 Inch External Hard Drive - Silver: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories
how big was the update file? , i'm trying to find the 1.71 file but i can only find a file that is 320MB in size
i thought it was about 900MB !
WOW £152 for the 500gb ssd , you must be made of moneyI went for an ssd. No real gain in size as it's only 512gb but the improvements in loading are good.
And I'll just pick up a 1tb ssd in the future as prices are dropping fast.
This is the ssd I went for Crucial MX100 512GB SATA III 6GB/s Solid State Drive SSD - CT512MX100SSD1 - Scan.co.uk
cheers jay ,You can get the update file here Update features (ver 1.71) - PlayStation Network, PSN official news
