If you are going to run games via external anyways, I doubt SSD for internal makes sense for you(and unnecessary cost as well). May be get 250gb regular HD. 

ya im running all my games on an external HDD.....

same thought here about ssd being a waste of money.....but i want to know how much space does the system OS occupy? i guess 250gb will be sufficient for it.

 

Also any suggestions about Seagate/WD? Some are saying to avoid seagate.

Hi all

I was using an 1tb internal HDD for my ps4 , now thats busted as hell. I use a 2tb external HDD for my games.

I dont want to spend more than 2.5k for an internal HDD which will just be used for the system OS. + plus with the ps5 coming out soon , the ps4 will be used for max another 12-14 months.

 

Will a 120gb ssd suffice? is it really worth it using an SSD on the ps4?

Or shall i go for any 250gb sata HDD out there?

SSD has minimal benefits for ps4 because of other bottlenecks. Just go for the cheapest hdd.

ya will do that....but which is better...seagate or WD? some are saying to avoid Seagate. I kinda concur with them as the previous HDD was Seagate.

I have 5-6 HDDs, all are Seagate. Though I only use them for backup, not continuos usage. Only Seagate that went bad was the one I used for continuous gameplay on 360, but that hdd had loads of uninstalls and installs. I don't think external HDDs are designed for continuous usage like gaming. Just use them for backup.

Yup exactly I need them for continuous use.....seems like WD performs better in.that aspect

External hdd are the exact same as internal hdd but with a USB attached. The failure can't be very different from internal variants.

That's ironical. the licensed ps4 hard drive is from Seagate. LOL!

 

I also finally decided to use one of my external 2TB HDD which was just lying around and not being used with the PS4. Haven't started using it yet. I was constantly running out of space on the internal drive.

I am planning to use this hard drive which i bought back in 2016.

Is it good enough to be used with the PS4?

Ya this is my external HDD for games rn. Seems decent so far. It's the internal ones of Seagate that have been failing for me.

 

Maybe I got a faulty PS4 🤷🏻‍♂️

I bet everything above that USB port is just a giant cooling block, fan and maybe PSU. The motherboard just ends where USB port is, which is probably why it is smack dab in the middle.
