    Ooh, not bad! Would this drive be a good candidate to use to replace the 1TB PS4 Pro drive?

    I hope you're not trying to improve game load times?

    Yeah, that as well as installation of games from media and/or downloads, OS updates, etc. a fruitless exercise?

    I forgot about that article, or a similar one. The performance benefits doesn't appear to be across the board.

    If you're replacing a fauly drive (or need more storage) then yes by all means buy an SSD, you'd be silly to replace it with a mech.

    Agreed, hopefully it won't come to that. My unit has been pretty solid.

    Hi

    I tried a ssd in a older notebook.

    Then transfer 80 g on mkv movies from a m. 2 usb stick( wd green m. 2 480g)

    Win 10.

    Usb transfer at 290mb sec to ssd.

    Ssd 1 was 240g ramless one (above). Vs
    Samsung 860evo ssd.

    After a bit transfer drop to 76mb/sec.

    But the samsung droped to 190mb/sec

    The Samsung gets 561mb/sec read n write 550...and thats with rapid mode off.

    Both boot quick...

    But transfering files (esp lots), samsung much faster..

    Also after u enable rapid mode, notebook boit a bit faster... Games load quicker too.

    Feels more snappy on old quadcore notebook.

    I also thing ramless ssd wont last as long.

    But for a dump drive.. Great.

    A sshd good in a ps4 (after repeated loads).

    I don't hear much about whether these silicon power drives are decent or not. Are they basically the budget drives of the industry?

    Thats what the reviews I looked at say but willing to risk it seeing as I wont be using it as an OS drive, bloody cheap!

    Nothing wrong with Silicon Power, they have both low and high end drives. They've been around a long time, I wouldn't hesitate buying one.

    Those are nice numbers. Can you try a sustained read/write, like say 250GB+ of mixed files, just out of interest? That's where most drives fall down, random files and sustained read/writes. Even the cheapest drives can run really quickly for the first couple of GB till they run out of buffer and fall in a heap.
