    Well worth the upgrade

    The Pro is a worthy upgrade to the PS4 slim. The main differences are really showcased if you have a 4K tv with HDR. If the software take advantage, you will be showcased a beautiful spectacle of gaming, full high dynamic range in great detail. Uncharted, Gran Turismo, and particularly the new God of War are just breathtaking. Even games like Fortnite with benefit from larger draw distances and zippier load times. The standard in consoles.

    Why not, right?

    We went in because we needed another Ps4 for coop games, and had every intention of purchasing a regular Ps4. We figured we'd buy a 500gb and just upgrade the hard drive to a Tb, but Best Buy had a great price on the pro, so we went with this. I don't really notice much of a difference, honestly, but I hear you need a new fancy 4k supercrazyHD TV to really get all the benefits. We have a nice Samsung, but definitely not the latest technology. So far the console has been great. It boots up fast, runs all of our games extremely well, and was well worth the purchase for the Tb HD alone. We were able to sync all of our games/data from our main Ps4 wirelessly over our network and it was done surprisingly fast. So, in short, I don't really get why this is such an upgrade, but we're happy with the purchase for the HD alone.

    I've been playing Playstation since 1995. It's impressive how far the technology has come. I updated my PS4 to the pro because of the graphic and HDR upgrades. It pairs well with my 65 inch Sony 930D. The graphics are updated on some of the games with an example being Tomb Raider. I've a Samsung 1T SSD in it so the loads are quick as always. I've noticed that the physical media loads pretty quick too. I was not concerned it didn't play 4K media as I already have the Samsung 4K Bluray player. But that's just me.

    Needed a replacement.

    My dat one PS4 finally died. It has seen a lot of use over the course of it's life. I was in need of a replacement and just couldn't pass up the great price on upgrading to the Pro system. Graphics are noticeably better and games seem to load faster. The addition of 5Ghz Wi-Fi connectivity is nice but unnecessary in my situation as I have mine hardwired. Overall I am pleased with the upgrade.

    If you already have a PS4 but want to get the most out of your games then it's worth the upgrade. Even if you don't have a 4K T.V. That's what I bought the system for. I play on a 1080p monitor and the added benefits are worth it to me. Even if I had a 4K set I would probably still choose the 1080p route just because games are smooth and sharper looking, not to mention more stable. When I do decide to upgrade to a better monitor I'll be able to take full advantage of the system and hopefully by that time developers will understand how to use the power of the system more. But with that said, I'm not taking full advantage of the system and I still love it. It's a more powerful version of the system we all know and love. Why not upgrade? Thanks for reading!

    Worthy upgrade if you're upgrading to a 4K HDR tv

    I purchased this after buying my 4k HDR tv. As advertised visuals and perforance are improved on the select games I've tried thus far. One great thing that isn't highly publicized is how easy it is to transfer data from my old ps4 to my new one. Overall, ps4 has a user friendly interface, great games, and great visuals. 5 stars.

    I bought a PS4 last year not realizing that my old TV would break down and that I would replace it with a 4K TV. After seeing how good games looked in 4K, I couldn't resist upgrading. The 60fps setting for games like Tomb Raider, Horizon Zero Dawn, and God of War makes replaying these games a refreshing experience. Spider-Man looks AMAZING on this system. My only gripe is that Sony didn't spring for the 4K Blu-ray player, but it's a small sacrifice for me.

    Picked up a PS4 Pro after it went on sale and can say I am not disappointed. Games that are desginated PS4 pro enhanced noticably look better on a 4K TV. Some other details are noticible in some games (like better textures and lightining). Also noticed in Boost mode some older games run a bit more smoothly. Overall I am happy with upgrading. For those on the fence it is only worth it if you already own a 4K TV, otherwise I would recommend holding off until you upgrade your TV.

    The PS4 is a great gaming system. Quiet, good graphics, easy to use interface, and game installs are quick. The controller is a huge upgrade from the PS3. Larger and more comfortable to use. Sony has made hard drive upgrades a breeze if you need more storage.

    I've had this for about a month now. I upgraded from a launch day PS4 and this system is much quieter and doesn't get as warm as my old PS4 did. Games also play much better. God of War was so much smoother on this system over my old one. I'd recommend this even if you don't have 4K just for the improvement in gameplay.

    I had the day one PS4, and it just started to go bad. The HDMI port just died on me. I figured why not upgrade I have a chance to get something better. I bit the bullet and boom the new PS4 Pro now working with my 4k television. I see the difference overall between all of my games I own. I was shocked on how many games work better with the Pro. I am glad I kind of waited for this upgrade since there is more support for some of the older games. Overall I am happy with my purchase and not to mention the extra horse power under the hood of this baby.

    I had a PS4 at launch and it's been great to get to go through old games that have been updated. The increased power is used well even if you have a 1080p TV. One of the coolest things about the Pro is that streaming and game recording is increased in resolution over the base PS4.

    I had a regular ps4 before this so I can see the differences between the systems pretty well. This system really is an upgrade in every way. If you're on the fence, I would recommend it 100% if you have a 4k TV. If you're running 1080p it's nice, but not as big a difference. It is better in every way though, quieter, better Wi-Fi connection, better visuals in games and UI, even looks better imo.

    The definition of a "nice to have"

    There's nothing really wrong with the PS4 Pro apart from the lack of an UltraHD 4K drive. It's faster than the OG PS4, it does 4k and HDR game and streaming content, and it makes PSVR work quite a bit better on particular games. If you want to experience Resident Evil 7 in VR, the Pro is almost an essential upgrade. But bottom line, if I wasn't both spending a bunch of Best Buy points and selling my OG PS4 to my best friend, I don't think this thing would have been worth full price as an upgrade. If you are just buying into the PS4 ecosystem and have any interest in VR though, this is a strong start for sure.

    Ok graphical upgrade for 4k owners, but...

    The power button is no longer touch activated, but a physical button that feels cheap and mine does not work. When I press the power button it does nothing and I must use the controller for on and off, but the next time I turn the ps4 on nothing shows up on the tv. This forces me to unplug it giving me a warning message for improperly turning it off and makes me worry the system will have problems in the future.

    Nice improvement over regular PS4

    I sold my regular PS4 and used the money to upgrade to the PS4. The primary reasons was to take advantage of the 4K capabilities while watching Netflix through the PS4. I do subscribe to Playstation Vue, but none of their programming is in 4K. In addition, to the video the games are noticeably better looking. I have a LG B6 OLED and some of the games really stand out when it comes to the details. It is not a 100% improvement, but more of a 25% improvement, but that is enough if you are into it and use the PS4 Pro as your "cable box" as I do.

    PS4 Pro goes great with 4K TV

    The PS4 Pro is a great upgrade for a user with 4K HDR TV available. Also makes games run better without the TV upgrade. Like the design as well. Looks sharp and runs quiet for the most part. Games like Horizon Zero Dawn really show off the hardware nicely. Upcoming games like God of War will benefit greatly from the boost. Serious gamers will own this system if they want the most optimized experience available.

    Upgraded to the PS4 pro because my friend wanted a PS4 so I sold him mine and upgraded to this since it's more beneficial to me as I have a 4K tv and he doesn't. Well worth the upgrade. Games look clearer and run smoother with the new boost mode option for games to help frames per second stability. It's quieter than the regular PS4 and the controller is neater and feels better and holds battery life very well. No 4K player but I do streaming more than anything these days so depends on your viewing preferences and what you're looking out of a console.

    The original PS4 was an incredible system. Not on par with high end gaming PC's but a the price point of $400 it had a wide array of games that looked and played beautifully. Pros: - Sharper Graphics - Smooth User Interface - New and Improved DS4 controller - Enhanced Network Card - Silent Cons: - Not necessarily a con, but if you already own the Original PS4 do not expect to be blown out of the water with the Pro. However, I will say that all of these minor improvements have made my gaming experience far more enjoyable. Looking forward to experiencing Final Fantasy XV in all its glory!
