Here's what I did and I'm not particularly a computer techy but have a reasonable amount of knowledge though it's definitely not necessary.
Firstly, you'll need the following:
* Your PS4, with gamepad and microUSB charge cable
* A medium Philips screwdriver
* This hard drive or similar 2.5" drive
* A 1GB or greater USB flash drive (to reinstall the PS4’s system software)
Follow this link to install the PS4 software onto the memory stick.
* Turn off PS4 fully, not into rest mode but off completely and unplug everything
* With the PS4 facing you on a stable surface, slide off shiny part of the console cover to the left
* Once removed, the bottom left corner is the hard drive in a housing.
* Unscrew the one single screw nearest to the bottom left corner of the console.
* Slide out gently, the hard drive housing which is
attached to the hard drive, towards you.
* On the sides of the housing once removed from the console, there are 4 dark grey screws. Unscrew all these and slide the hard drive out of the housing.
* Slide new hard drive into the housing and replace the four screws.
* Slide housing containing new hard drive back into the console slot
* Replace the first screw taken out at the start of this process.
* Replace console cover.
Plug all cables back in and get ready for first switch on.Read more ›
UPDATE 28TH NOVEMBER 2013. Here is a link that gives instructions on the Official Sony UK PlayStation website to download and then initialise your PS4 after replacing the Hard Drive. Within these instructions is a link with the name 'DOWNLOAD NOW', this will download the system software update file (1.51), which you will need for your UK PlayStation 4 after replacing the hard drive (859MB - PS4UPDATE.PUP):
I am purchasing this Hard Drive to upgrade the 500GB that comes with the Sony PlayStation 4 console released on 29th November 2013 in the UK.
I phoned Sony PlayStation customer services yesterday to check whether this HD was compatible with the new PS4, and although they cannot as yet officially confirm that it is, they did tell me that all the product details fit the requirements of a PS4 replacement HD as indicated in the US PS4 Ultimate FAQ document, i.e.
Memory capacity higher than 160GB
One important thing to remember however is to make sure you have the 1.51 system software update file on a USB stick downloaded from the UK Sony PlayStation website, and NOT the US 1.51 system software file currently available on the US Sony PlayStation website. The UK 1.51 file is not currently available until 29th November 2013, once the UK PlayStation 4 console is released. The 1.51 system software update file will then be available on Official European Sony PlayStation websites.
Again, important NOT to download the US 1.51 system software file if you have a UK PlayStation.
Also remember after downloading the 1.51 system software update file (PS4UPDATE.Read more ›
The older, Samsung HN-M101MBB 1TB 5400rpm SATA 2.5 inch Internal Hard Drive: read av +- 75mb/s , write av +- 70mb/s
This model, Samsung/Seagate ST1000LM024 1TB 2.5 inch 5400RPM SATA II Hard Disk Drive: read av +- 87mb/s, write av +- 88mb/s
*both tested with blackmagic at 1GB, 3GB and 5GB stress on a macbook pro 2.2 i7, SATA II 3.0 port (optic bay), 16gb ram.*
The speed of this hard drive amaze me as its almost as fast, if not faster than the Seagate Momentus XT 750gb hybrid drive (yes I have one of those as well), tested at around 80-90mb/s at both read and write speed in main bay SATA III 6.0. The samsung/seagate is A WHOLE 250GB BIGGER AND HALF OF THE PRICE compare to the XT.
I was sooo close to buy another older HN-M101MBB model because of the ratings and my previous experience, but thought hay, why not give this a try as the 3 stars review here dont really make sense IMO.
Over all very happy with this drive, very quick, reasonably quiet and pretty good on the power withdraw. Will buy another when time comes!
