    Default Dedicated PS4 HDD/SSD Upgrade Kits with Up to 1.5 TB Released; 25% Faster Loading..



    Woodstock-based hardware retailer Other World Computing released four upgrade kits dedicated to the PS4, offering four different ways to upgrade the stock 500 GB HDD coming with Sonys New Console.

    The options offered include a 1 TB HDD/SDD hybrid drive or a 1.5 TB HDD if you want more space to download more content. Alternatively, if you prefer speed you can choose between a 240 GB SSD (which could definitely prove a little a little tight) and a more reasonable 480 GB SDD.

    Why would you want to actually reduce the space available in your PS4′s disk? According to the retailer the SDD options offer 25% faster load, saving and booting times. Faster times are also promised for the 1TV HDD/SDD hybrid, but the actual gain isnt specified. Your mileage may vary on whether faster loading speed is worth the trade off or not.

    Together with the selected HD the bundle also include the following items:


    • OWC USB 3.0 Express 2.5″ SATA Drive Enclosure, Black
    • OWC USB 2.0 Flash Drive for PlayStation 4 download
    • #1 Phillips screwdriver
    • Up to 3-Year Replacement Warranty
    • High Quality Double Shielded USB 3.0 (mini-B type) connecting cable
    • Carrying sleeve
    • OWC USB 3.0 Express Enclosure Installation Guide
    • Instruction Guide for Drive Upgrade for PS4


    Prices are as follows:

    • 1 TB HDD/SDD hybrid drive: $99.99
    • 1.5 TB HDD:$149.99
    • 240 GB SSD: $219
    • 480 GB SDD $399


    Source.

    Okay so if you watched the video I posted a week or so ago, the SSD does load the games faster than the HDD that is already in the Playstation 4. It may be a bit pricy but I'd say its worth it.

    Dude, I can get a 250gb SSD for way cheaper. Around the 80$ - 100$ range.

    I can get a 1TB HDD for 60$

    500GB HDD for 40$ or less (depends manufacture)

    Prices are way wrong, totally not worth it to buy these upgrade kits.




    Shit, I can even buy a 3TB external for 100$.

    The HDD is fine, but there is definitely a noticeable difference with an SSD.
