    IGN did a test on drives in the PS4, only problem is they never tested a 7200rpm drive in it, but most would say a SSHD is faster, i know it was faster in my PS3.

    Anyway IGN's test is here: http://uk.ign.com/wikis/playstation-...t%20Comparison

    I would go for the cheaper option.

    I have a question, I'm really not too savvy with all of this hard drive knowledge. How do I know if it'll cause a hardware issue? I was actually thinking waiting on a 2TB for next year. Just read coolguy's post and he's regarding about heat issues.

    Scaremongering.
    No doubt 7200 drives generates more heat, but not so much it will cause an issue. Sony supply 5400RPM drives due to them being cheaper.

    7200rpm is the best you can do for PS4 at the moment it won in speed tests against SSHD and SSD and is about 20% faster than the stock HDD. Most newer 7200rpm drives don't produce any noticeable heat my 7200rpm HDD in my PS3 doesn't ever get hot..

    I have the western digital Scorpio black 750GB 7200 rpm. No complaints. Although I never even turned on my ps4 with the stock drive in it. I just wanted a Better drive than stock and for $73 it wasn't too expensive.

    Eh. I put a 7200rpm in each PS3 model that has released. Never had a heat issue with either of them.

    Meh, I'm just going to get a similar 5400 HDD since with the hybrids, on every first bootup it will be no different compared to the 5400's. But after that with each additional bootup it's faster. But if you were to swap a game again, it will be slow on the first bootup. Because of that, I see no difference in performance. Unless I'm going with a SSD but even at that the cost isn't worth it.

    I've heard from a lot of people and reviewers that this SSHD is top of the bunch, reliable, and surprisingly close to the speed of SSDs. Quite surprising seeing as it's 5400rpm and has only 8MB cache.

    Considering that the Toshiba MQ01ABD100 1TB Hard Drive 2.5" is only 50 I might actually pick one up.

    Yes..... A 7200rpm HHD is gonna run 50 degrees hotter and use an extra 1600watts to run....

    What the hell people? First of all the 7200rpm HHD will run better and faster. The Hybrid you'll have to use for a while before it 'learns' what data gets loaded and used the most before you see any performance improvements and that's on a normal PC. I wouldn't know how that functions in a closed console situation. Also beware. There aren't numerous reports and reviews on $#@!ty Seagates for the sake of being negative. Yes there are always the outliers who pick up a perfect working Seagate that lasts as long as a HDD should but yeah. Be careful with them
