Which HHD is faster?

#1 Posted by Jr14 (1603 posts) -

I'm going to replace my hard drive in my PS4 and I'm wanting to know which hard drive is the fastest. If someone could rate these from fastest to slowest it would really help me out.

The 7200 rpm drive is faster(Seagate Momentus XT 750GB), But for that price of the 750gb of $188 for around $200 you can pick up a 512gb SSD to have the best speed. But if you want the best ratio for space,price and speed the 1tb 5400 hybrids are a good choice.

Look at the RPM. The 750GB one is 7200, and the other two are 5400.

@04dcarraher: Ya I'm looking for a fast, high capacity HHD. Anything 750GB and higher is fine with me. Is there any difference between those 2 5400rpm hhd's? And are all those hhd's compatible with the ps4? They are supposed to be 2.5".

I would get the Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200rpm 64MB over those... Its $88 and performs better than those 5400rpm HDD's.

No real difference between the two 5400 rpm ones and yes all those drives will work as long as they are no thicker then 9.5 millimeters.
I would aim for the cheapest 1tb hybrids. Tests done on them vs ssd and standard 5400rpm show that the 5400rpm hybrid were only a few seconds slower then the ssd and both the hybrid and SSD were 2x faster or more.

Then yes you've left with the 188$ one, personally I think what @04dcarraher said in the 1st place either 500Gb SSD or a 5400RPM hybrid one for 95$ for the best value: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seagate-internal-hard-drive-st1000lm014 in terms of space/money/performance

@04dcarraher: ok thanks il get one of those 5400rpm hhd's then.
