5 out of 5 eggs Great Upgrade for PS4 Hard Drive 12/25/2013

This review is from: Western Digital WD AV-25 WD10JUCT 1TB 5400 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros:

Quiet, cool, plenty of storage. When I first got my PS3 systems I upgraded to the largest drives available at the time (Western Digital 740GB drives) but always wanted more space. After hooking up my PS4, installing and downloading some games, and capturing and uploading some video clips I noticed I'd used quite a bit of space...which was rather troubling since I'd only had it for a week or so. I knew I'd want to upgrade the hard drive but hadn't really looked into what was available...and then I received an invitation to review this hard drive. Excellent timing!

The drive is the perfect height (9.5mm). It takes a little wiggling to get the side mount screws attached but once installed the drive is very quiet and cool. System seems to boot up faster and load games faster. It was a very simple installation (slide the top panel of the PS4 to the left, take out a top screw and then 4 side screws)

Cons:

As with any hard drive you won't actually get 1TB of useable space. The manufacturer calculates a mb as 1,000kb and Operating Systems calculate a mb as 1,024kb. All hard drive sizes can be calculated with a fair amount of accuracy by simply multiplying the advertised size by 0.931. which should give you the approximate useable size.

Other Thoughts:

Still, 931GB of space in your brand new PS4 (or even your somewhat older but still awesome PS3) is impressive and means your PS4 has plenty of storage for all of those games that are going to be released in coming years. I can't really judge the hard drive that comes standard in the PS4...but it seems pretty junky and is DEFINITELY loud. My wife commented on how noisy the PS4 was when we started Knack together. After replacing the hard drive she was quite pleased and again commented, this time on how quiet the system was.

I'm sure this hard drive would work fine in other applications but it seems like other reviewers have those covered. I was quite excited to crack open a practically brand new piece of gaming hardware and go poking around inside of it with a screwdriver. Don't be afraid! Buy this drive and upgrade that Playstation 4!
