Would be all over this if it wasn't a Seagate product--I've only had bad experiences with their drives, and their customer service is just the worst.

 

As one of the reviewers mentioned, if you take a chance on this particular drive, use the saving to get the extended warranty.

Only 5400 rpm?  Isn't the stock/default on the PS4 7200 rpm?

Nope, 5400RPM on the stock 500GB HDD

D'oh.  Yeah, just googled it.  For some reason though it was 7200.  :(

 

Good deal then.

Agree that Seagate doesn't instill confidence, but this HDD comes with a 3 year warranty. Is there really a need to extend beyond that?

It's an HHD/SSD hybrid drive so it will be much faster than a normal 5400rpm HDD.
I'm tempted to get this bit I'm going to wait and see how this 500gb does

I think I misunderstood ... edited ... unsure if this hybrid works in the PS3. 

 

I am going with the hybrid in my PS4 and moving the stock 500GB/5400rpm to my PS3 (as two of my friends have done no probs)

I'm in complete agreement.

  Just go over to Amazon, and you'll see all the 1 star reviews for this drive.  It has a very high failure rate.

Sounds like a solid deal, anyone know if this voids the sony standard warranty if we replace the hard drive?

What's faster a hybrid ssd or just the ssd?

Ssd. The hybrid still relies on moving parts.

a straight ssd is faster, but this is cheap by the gig. This drive caches commonly used files in the ssd section and less used files sit in the regular HD section.

I see some 1 star posts, but this isn't as bad as everyone makes it out.

# of 5 star reviews: 249 

# of 1 star reviews: 27

 

In fact, 88% of the reviews on Amazon are 3+ stars.

I'd buy the HGST 1TB 7200RPM that's $89 on newegg. The SATA2 version was $70 on amazon last week.

How are you going to get that into a PS4? With a shoehorn or something?

My friends and I have had many 1TB Seagate Baracuda drives that have all been great - SATA III, 7200 rpm, 64mb cache. None out of 9 (since 2007 I think?) have had any issues. The majority of people that have had issues with Seagate HDD's were drives over 2GB, with 3 platters.

The hybrid portion of those disks is likely NOT what is making the games load faster. It's more likely the disk density. 8GB NAND is not enough to do anything except cache the most-used processes. That's what makes the boot process almost identical with the SSD and the SSHD. What is more likely the reason for the faster loading is disk density of the 1TB drive vs the stock 500GB. 

 

Anyway, I threw in my 750GB Seagate SSHD, but I'm under no illusions the 8GB flash is making games load faster. 

 

Also, based on what I assume of the PS4's share process, I do NOT recommend using SSDs in the PS4. The system is constantly writing to the disk (the last 15 minutes of game time etc), and so you'll burn up the SSD pretty quickly.

Do you mean 2 TB instead of 2 GB?

I'm using the Momentus 750 XT. Apparently the 500GB Momentus XT doesn't work.

I can confirm the Momentus 5400rpm 1TB HD (not the SSHD) does not work in the PS4. Tested two of them in three different PS4s at 1.5 and 1.51.

You might want to wait for this drive, it's not out yet, but coming soon.  It will match better with playstation plus.

When is that one out? It's seems to be a perfect fit for the PS4, and it's being released just in time.

I'm not entirely sure.  Some sites reported they shipped some already, but I haven't found any for sale yet.  I'm thinking it has to be soon though.
