    3.5 Inch Hard Drive Compatibility Coming with Nyko PS4 Accessory

    By Glenn Gordon
    7 January 201544


    Held each January, the Consumer Electronics Show is an exposition event where electronics companies from around the globe camp to show off their plans for the new year. It is not usually open to the public.
    Sony was among the roster at CES 2015 to show off a new 4K TV that’s slimmer than its own Xperia smartphones (as well as normally thin objects such as pencils), a slick and clearly expensive light speaker, and to announce that about 4 million PS4s were sold over the holidays.[/COLOR]
    Among the electronics giants was Nyko, a company well-known for its gaming peripherals and accessories. Nyko announced two important new peripherals for the PS4: The Data Bank and the Type Pad.[/COLOR]

    Sony’s PlayStation 4 is the only generation-eight console that allows a user to exchange its hard drive, at least without voiding the manufacturer warranty. It is only compatible with 2.5-inch drives. These drives are usually found in notebook and some all-in-one computers because of their smaller size, but are more expensive and limited in hard drive capacity than 3.5-inch drives found in most desktop computers. Nyko’s Data Bank allows users to install one of these cheaper, higher-capacity 3.5-inch drives into their PlayStation 4 consoles.
    [/COLOR]
    There is a tradeoff, however. The Data Bank adds a black block to the top of the PS4’s slim, streamlined design. Even so, the design of the Data Bank is pleasing and in line with that of the PS4, and its most likely inconvenience will be for those used to standing the PS4 upright. The data access LED on the front may also prove useful.

    ]Nyko has been telling the press that it wants to keep the Data Bank within the $30-$40 price range, which is a decent price for a device of this type, but the Data Bank does not come with a hard drive. Customers must buy a 3.5-inch hard drive to go with the Data Bank. Depending on brands and available deals, the difference between a 2.5-inch drive and a comparable 3.5-inch drive can be less than $40, and thus Nyko will have to be careful with its pricing. It makes much more sense to buy the 2.5-inch drive the PS4 is compatible with than to spend more than the 2.5-inch drive for a 3.5-inch plus the Nyko Data Bank.

    Nyko also announced the Type Pad, a Bluetooth keyboard for PS4 that plugs directly into the DualShock 4 controller’s headphone jack. It features a small analog stick for menu navigation, and charges via USB. This is not the first PS4 keyboard to be released, but it is definitely the first to feature an analog stick, and Nyko’s reputation and publicity could launch the Type Pad beyond competing keyboards.[/COLOR]

    Nyko has not announced a release date or official price for either the Data Bank or the Type Pad, but it hopes to have both available within the first half of 2015.

    I think this is a pretty cool attachment. Especially since standard hard drives give you much more bang for your buck.

    Ugly.. I'd rather snake a sata cable through the back and into a external drive.

    Definitely not the most attractive thing around. But it is a start. Maybe they can develop something that sits underneath.

    The peripheral ps4 screen with license from Sony actually looks decent - atleast makes an effort, lol.

    Disc install times are so fast on Ps4 that once I do need space uninstalling and reinstalling some games isnt really a big deal to me. That thing does look ugly though. lol

    Only problem is updates. I wouldn't keep anything on my hard drive if it wasn't for hanging on to updates. I wish they went into separate files. That way if you delete the game data it doesn't set you back time.

    Read about this earlier and you gotta give it to Nyko for trying to help but it makes the console looks ugly and 3.5 HDD may be cheaper but are also slower so not much of an improvement if you're only saving like $40 on a cheaper 3.5 HDD.

    3.5 Inch Hard Drive Compatibility Coming with Nyko PS4 Accessory

    I'm quite satisfied with the 1TB SSHD. If I ever need to upgrade again I will probably move to a 2.5".
    But it's nice to give choice to people. Some may think it is worth it in order to have 8TB of storage.

    You mean 3.5 was and is faster.

    SSHDs aren nowhere as expensive as SSDs.

    doesn't bother me none, gives me more options for a HDD. I don't just sit there and look at my beautiful console machine. 3.5 HDD gives much more options. It's just too bad that the freaking Raptor HDD's are so overpriced still, I mean right now. 10,000rpm, they are still expensive and this is like 7 years later. LOL

    Aren't the 3.5 the fat ones clocked at 7200 rpm tops?

    Oh god! Seeing it in reality has now changed my mine, that thing is hideous!!! I was actually thinking about getting that for a second because I have my Wii U on top of my PS4 and it would have fit in perfectly, but that thing just looks dumpy! QUICK, KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!

    Does it have to sit on the top though? If you could just set it off to the side then there isn't really a problem. But it looks like it's mounted some way.

    I just hope it doesn't turn dysfunctional. Usually these third party items go bad. Here's a video for you guys:

    The only third party accessories I have had only was this Pelican Controller for the PlayStation 1 and a GameStop Gamecube controller which was given to me for free all died on me.

    Nope, the WD Raptors are 10k rpm but SSD's are killing that.

    7200rpm for medium capacity and they run hot for 6tb drives.

    Could have created an undercarriage that is a cooling fan and enclosure combo. Maybe next time.
