      Answer

      Yes, it will work just fine. The system performance will be about the same but you'll have 4x the storage capacity of the standard 500gb drive Sony provides. After play station OS install and updates you'll have around 1.8TB left to use.

        Answer

        Yes, this will fit into your PS4 perfectly (I have one in mine) and after OS installation for your PS4 you will have about 1.77 TB free memory. IGN has a great guide on how to upgrade your PS4 hard drive, however you will also need a computer that can access the internet and a 2.0 USB stick with at least 1GB of memory

            Is this a 9.5mm or 12.5 mm thick drive   (10 Answers)

            What is the thickness of this drive? The info on the website avoids any measurements to it's thickness. My laptop only takes 9.5mm thick drives, not the larger 12.5mm thick.

              Hello, I have a Toshiba P75-A7200 laptop, which has a compartment for a 2nd drive and I would like to add this. Would I need to add my OS information to this drive as well or just leave it on the existing drive? Thank you   (2 Answers)

                Answer

                This is entirely up to you but I would choose whichever drive is fastest for the OS and use the other drive as storage. Most likely the bigger the drive, the slower it is. Most drives this size are only 5400rpm and better drives are 7200rpm. The best option would be to run your OS off of a SSD and use the other drive to store your big files. SSD drives are about 5 times faster than even the 7200rpm drives. I hope this answered your question, good luck!!!

                You shouldn't have any issues. The file format is the same, and I just used this on my early 2011 MacBook Pro. You also don't need to worry about the SATA speed as it's not going to affect your older product. It's just saying that it will work with faster drives.

                You would definitely be required to reinstall Windows. New hard drives are always blank, no data, no OS.
