Just found a good price portable SSD for your quick backup from PC.
Colour: Cobalt is only discounted price.
Store in the title .. :)
Anyone know if I can use this to expand my PS4 storage?
Yes to PS4, yes to PS5 (but only for PS4 games)
Should be no problem, I used Samsung External SSD T5 500Gb on my PS4, and no problem.
Game load faster than using HDD, and I can swap it between my PS4 and PS5 no problem.
But 500Gb is quite small, so I use it with my Seagate 4Tb external HDD, so any game I currently playing, I put it on my SSD, but the other, I move it on my 4Tb External HDD.
Just remember to "safely removed external drive" when swapping between External SSD and External HDD.
No reason why you couldn’t.
It really depends on the speed the PS4 needs… this one is slower than a normal USB HDD and sometimes it slower than a simple flash drive. I did buy it to watch movies from it, but ended up just storing the family photos on it
That's strange, would this SDD really be slower than a portable HDD?
It has a speed of a flash drive (but not a flash drive from a faster version) . There was a discussion about this a few month ago with benchmark details, etc. The write speed is way below of a normal external USB HDD.
@Csonty: Ahhh ok interesting, do you remember if read speeds were on par or better?
Mixed review. Better go with Samsung T5 for a little bit more.
Little = ~30% more according to this deal.
For a little bit more again (although 50% on top of the 30%), you can get the 1TB https://www.centrecom.com.au/samsung-portable-ssd-t5-usb-31-...
These little bits keep adding up…
And that’s before you start waiting “just a couple of months”.
Does anyone know if I could remove the ssd from the case?
Can confirm that removal is the reverse of the installation procedure.
Read the comments from that post regarding QLC and DRAMless…
If that's true for this disk too, it's as fast as a regular usb stick..
I just got one for $49
