    Question Should I upgrade ny PS4's HDD with an internal or external drive?

    Hi! I have to upgrade my PS4's 500Gb HDD because it's full, I'm looking at the Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 2TB (ST2000LX001) and at the Seagate Expansion 4TB Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 (STEA4000400). But y main concerned is speed, will games installed on the external drive will have the same performance as a game installed on the internal drive?

    Either should be fine. You can store on an external now which is nice. Personally, I prefer the internal hard drive because it's less space on my TV console. When I fill my 2TB I installed, I'll probably get an external at that point. Also, don't worry about getting those high end performance and SSD hard drives. The PS4 was designed for the 2.5 inch hard drives and they're 5400 RPM. If you spend the extra money on those performance drives, the performance gains will be negligible considering the costs. Remember, this is a console, not a desktop computer Quite possibly the oldest PS community on the net
