Thinking of upgrading and want to know if it improves anything in BFV as a few YouTube comparisons clearly show better speeds downloading and uploading using an SSD. Does this translate to online play too as in faster sending game data back ond forth?

    I'm using a Crucial MX-500 500GB SSD in my PS4 Pro and love it. Same performance as the Samsung EVO, but way cheaper.

    For the first time ever, you'll actually see how cool the PlayStation UI & menus are, you won't have that annoying stuttering when your PS4 Pro loads your Home screen - and games will definitely load quicker.

    Also super quick when the OS or apps get updated.

    No. You will load faster... to still wait for everyone pretty much. The ssd is worth it for games with a lot/long loading times though (like the division 2).

    I just slapped a 1TB HDD when I first got my PS4 (non-pro) and its fine.

    I bought the evo860. I'm impressed so far it's a decent improvement.

    I just put a hybrid drive in my PS, 8 gb solid state, the rest mechanical, it puts the most used data, such as the OS and most played games in the solid partition, and the rest on the standard drive.
    Boots up faster and using the ps menus  while games are running is a lot quicker.

    I too use a firecuda 2tb hybrid. More space than the default one. Quicker loading times (after a few game runs!) and cheap comparing to an all ssd 2tb disk

    The rumor is that the PS5 will launch next year just before Christmas, so maybe put the money for the SSD in a savings account and call it "my new PS5". :smiley:

    In FS I'm always first in the hangar and you're never late to pick planes or tanks. Beyond that it just speeds up loading time. If you buy a SSD check the tutorials on the web about the spec. The playstation bus is not very fast so you don't need the lowest latency SSDs and get them much cheaper.

    I had a hybrid drive in mine and it was night and day in regards to loading/texture streaming etc.
    While im sure a full sshd is a little faster,if its just for gaming on console i would def recommended the much cheaper hybrid drives for a gd bang for your buck.

    I'm really curious to know what type of SSD will go into the PS5, as Mark Cerny said in the Wired interview that it outperforms anything that is currently available for PCs.

    I have an internal hybrid but have been running the game on a standard external. I think I might transfer to the hybrid to see of its better.

    I dont think its worth it upgrading a ssd in your ps4
    new ssd are using sata 3 while ps4 uses sata 2, it has a backwards compatibility but you dont get the full potential speed.

    But more important, Sony OS doenst support TRIM. Like windows does.
    You know that an SSD  can only be overwritten a numerous amount of times.

    While TRIM detects wich parts has been written too, it redirects data to anothers spot, preventing the same spot on the ssd will be written, and making the ssd last longer. 


    Hopefully PS5 will have M2 SSD ^^  wich it 5 to 10 x faster then normal ssd

    Well, I don't think I'll have my PS4 Pro long enough for that to become a problem. If I could pre-order a PS5 right now, I most probably would. :smile:

    That's why I didn't buy the latest SSD for the ps4pro but a cheaper one with a spec maxing out the ps. However in 2019 I wouldn't do it with the ps5 coming next year.
