    HDD easier to swap than PS3



    It is very easy and there is no soft screw like on the PS3 to snap

    Good news, I hated that small blue screw with a passion.

    Why? Sure, load times would be increased but the amount of space you get per isn't really worth it for a storage medium. In my eyes. if it fits i'll probably get a 10,000 rpm Western Digital Velociraptor and get a 1TB

    I wouldn't have described it as hard, it was one screw An elastic band made it easy to do without stripping the head.

    i think moving up the next Gen a lot of games will benefit from an SSD as opposed to this gen, that's why i will get an SSD. Space is not really an issue, since i can just delete whatever i finished.

    Yes. It still wasn't hard to take out and put back in. If undoing 1 screw is seen as hard then I feel sorry for a lot of people.

    Gonna' be a standard HDD for me. I don't see the point in spending loads of money for a SSD when I doubt the benefits will even be seen.

    Removing the screw isn't hard, removing it without stripping it was.

    Not just the blue screw....it was one of the first things you had to get past. I had trouble with the small screws around the casing that held the HDD in place. I ended up chipping them and couldn't get the HDD out so had to order a replacement case and use pliers to get the screw off -- you might be wondering why I didn't do that in the first place (first time doing it and didn't expect chipping to be a problem); anyway point being it wasn't that hard but it did prove to be an issue so hearing that's improved is good news to me.

    you'd be surprised. this dude had to watch a tutorial to find out how to install the HDD on his 360. i have not seen a single device that was as easy to replace the HDD with, as the 360.

    I'm almost certain I read PS4 will not support SSD because the HDD is not a SSD so no way to install it, unless you mod your PS4.

    If it fits a standard HDD it'll fit a standard SSD

    Sorry i didn't understand a word from what you just said!

    the PS4 has a normal 2.5" HDD any 2.5" SSD will work.

    My bad, I just thought that the PS3 didn't support the SSD I know they're the same size but thought they'd require something in specific like watt usage and stuff in order to work with it and therefore wouldn't be compatible but I was wrong because that doesn't matter at all lol.

    That's good to hear. I hope that I can put an HDD that's bigger than 1 TB.

    Currently 1.5TB is the largest 2.5" drive that's 9.5mm tall, and that's the WD Travelstar 1.5TB drive that was recently released. All the ones on the market above this size right now are 15mm tall drives.

    Early next year sometime I'd suspect you'll see more enter the market w/ 1.5TB and 9.5mm tall, but I doubt you'll see a 2TB drive at 9.5mm until late 2014.

    A screw less. I guess every little helps.

    that blue screw was a bitch because it would strip and it was such an odd size. A better quality screw would have been much better as it wouldn't strip so easily and it would be a normal size for a phillips head screwdriver.

    Its all down to using the right screw driver and application of force. I had no issues with 2 blue screws.

    PS4 has little to no competition.

    Lovely news. If it's easier why not? There's no confirmation yet regarding which drives will actually work is there?
