How to Choose a Suitable SSD for PS4
Replace Internal HDD with SSD (Not Recommended)
PS4 has released a few versions since Nov, 2013. Now, PS4 includes the Originals, PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro.
Connect the SSD as External Hard Disk (Strongly Recommended)
Although different PS4 adapts different interfaces including SATA2 and SATA3, they equip with USB 3.0 which could provide a maximum transmission speed of 5Gbps.Generally, 5Gbps could make a full use of SSD performance. Besides, connecting the SSD as external disk could also free the users from taking apart the PS4 and make the steps easier. If you are using the Original or PS4 Slim, you need to take the SSD as an external disk. If you are using PS4 Pro, it is also recommended to make the SSD as an external disk.
The following items should be fulfilled before connect SSD as external disk for PS4:
- The SSD should be SATA SSD and the capacity should reach or exceed 250GB.
- 2.5 Inch hard disk enclosure which supports USB 3.0 is also required.
- The version of PS4 should be 4.50 or later version.
At present, PS4 only supports hard disk with a minimum capacity of 250GB. Some disks with a 240GB capacity could be used on computer but not the PS4. If you use such disk on PS4, the disk will not be recognized. So, please choose SATA SSD with a minimum capacity of 250GB. Besides, you should choose the hard disk enclosure carefully. The enclosure should use USB 3.0 connector and is for SATA hard disk. Such disk enclosures could be produced by ORICO, BUFFALO, etc with an acceptable price. Users can make the choice according to their needs.
