    Would you be able to boot the ps5 from the internal m2 drive if the soldered hard drive fails ?

    If the PS5 OS is on that fixed M2 drive for security reasons then the whole system is dead, do we know if the OS is on the M2 drive or is it on a chip?

    we dont know my money is it one m2 drive just partition a drive a 825gb drive is gona drop the actual free space down to 670gb. and ps5 says the size of the drive825gb drive is 670gb which mean its partion is split? atlest that what mean to me. so we only see the portion of drive we can use minus what ever was taken from partions it self, and rest missing gb are in hidden partions I can only assume is the OS.

    Not know this is reason why i got 4 year protection plan when I bought mine I think reguarless if my system full on fails I will find way to use 4 year protection to have system replace

    1gb drive partioned and used only as game storage is 920gb that is 80gb for partion, there whole lot more then 80gb being use from even small drive, usual the bigger the drive the more space just partions use up not the other way around

    I have question does it mater what 3.1 port I use on my ps5 for my T5? I using the Back 3.1 ports for my T5 with it included A-C cable Sony site recommend using C port on front with Drives included cables, But they all load my FF7R save (chapter 10 Sewers begin) in roughly 15 seconds.

    I ask cause I did Transfer from my T5 to My internal drive for FF7R which roughly 85gbs, which should of took roughly 5minutes to transfer providing the drive was doing atlest 400mb/s but took double that time. which left me curious. And the transfer to Internal drive only saved off 3 seconds from load that 1 save. do i didnt see the point of leaving it there, and i put back to the T5 which transfer it from internal drive to T5 faster then it transfer from T5 to the internal

    So i know fan is really the only thing the moves and makes vibrations, but instead of DIY fix of putting O-ring on between the fans screw and mount spot, which require me to take more the plates off, I opted for the sponge like pads you can get.

    I folded it in half and cut to size the stand, I put one under the Stand and one on top of stand where ps5 sits, This has reduce the vibrations sound created by Disc spinning, and vibration sound from fan spining, which was coming from plates transferring to Stand then to the 3 inch partial board the stand is made off. the vibrations hum from the fan is still there much quieter, and hum that would start then stop pretty much gone now or alot quiter. if only there was DIY fix I was willing to do to make coil whine gone. I think If I was willing or even able to stand up right i could reduce more cause stand would not be sitting on the plate. but that is not option.

    Fan wise ps5 is a quiet as my ps3 slim. sort of that slight whine, that so far I have not heard get worse in anyway.

    Happens with all the consoles, even the Switch is not immune from the heavy handiness some people put on their controllers. Which is all it is really.

    Both companies are targeting different demographics. AAA games on the PSN store have always been stupidly priced. Makes sense to buy a boxed copy.

    I've never had any problems with controllers, apart from when I've thrown one.
