5 out of 5 eggs This is going to be great generation 11/22/2013

This review is from: PlayStation 4 Console

Pros: Whether you are a PC or current gen gamer, you're first reaction after turning on the system and launching a game is that this really is next gen.

- Eye catching hardware
- Effortless setup
- Integrated and easier to use UI. The store is seamlessly integrated into the UI. Downloading from the store is a one-click process
- Fast and smooth UI. Can go to the UI from the middle of a firefight without skipping a beat.
- Designed for the gamer. The system does everything it could to make jumping into a game as smooth and fast as possible. Cold system bootup is less than half a minute. Even though disc games needs to be installed, even a 40+GB game needs only 3 mins before you can start. Game updates occurs during standby and in the background. Changing audio from the middle of a game is one button push.
- Gorgeous gameplay experience. High frame rate, high resolution, and detailed textures. Unprecedented for launch titles.
- Tons of indie support.
- Tons of F2P games. Don't need PS+ for most of these.
- No paywall for paid services like Netflix and Hulu Plus.
- DS4 improves on the DS3 in every way. Hard to go back.
- Remote play works on every game. No longer tied to my TV.
- Instant game collection. I only bought BF4 and K:SF (both from Newegg), but I already have a backlog thanks to PS+ (Resogun, Contrast), F2P (DCUO, Warframe, BLR), and Cross-Buy promotions (Flower, Sound Shape).
- User-replaceable hardware. Very easy to do.does not void the warranty. Mine is now a HGST 5k1500 1.5TB HDD.

Cons: - Arguably limited launch line-up (not much from Japan).

Other Thoughts: Newegg was great and offered my launch day delivery for only $10.

HGST Travelstar 5K1000 0J22413 1TB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet
2 platter design
Easy installation
Stable (no lockups after downloading and installing 300+ GB of games from PSN)
Good read speed

Cons: Write speed is a bit slow (may be due to 512e causing read-modify-write on unaligned sectors)

Other Thoughts: If you don't mind the slightly slow write speed (noticeable only during large game installations), the drive is great.
Otherwise, I would suggest the Seagate drives which comes with Smart Align, which allows the drive to avoid read-modify-write independent of OS. A lot of the people like Samsung, but it should have the same issue, so I'm guessing either its firmware does things faster/better or they aren't timing things

TOSHIBA MQ01ABD100 1TB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap
2 platter design

Cons: Noisy while idle (platters may be imbalanced)
Causes PS3 system to periodically lock up during download/installation of games during automatic update
Slow write speed (read speed is okay)

Other Thoughts: This drive may be fine for PC use, but it is unsuited for consoles. I suggest using HGST, Samsung, or Seagate.
Returned to Newegg.
