    I think that 240gb will get filled rather quick, for me I will probably go for a 2 gig as ps4 games seemed to have a massive install size.

    Looks like a better idea in the long run. You are right about the large install for PS4 games. Any recommendations on a drive to get?

    Yea... i don't think anyone has really tried putting a full on SSD into the PS4 yet (probably because any worthwhile sized SSD to put into the PS4 still costs about as much as the PS4 itself)... but if the PS4 still operates like the PS3 did, it seems that the OS isn't really that well optimized for SSD use, and doesn't really offer that drastic of a speed improvement as it does going from a HDD to SSD in a PC. Which i think is why more people are leaning towards the SSHDD hybrid drive for their PS4's.

    And i'm also kinda curious if it'd be better to go with the 1TB 5,400 RPM Hybrid drive like everyone seems to be getting, or if the 1TB 7,200RPM hard drive would be better...

    I actuaky like my Tritton AX720 it's not high end cans or anything but they are clear and have good directional audio and the amp is decent.

    Hey Ghosty. Anything is better than the HDD that comes with it. If you're not using that SSD for anyhting, then put it in. I highly doubt the PS4 os has garbage collection. So I'm not sure how that will affect performance later on.

    As for my delima, I said screw it and bought a 3.5mm splitter. I now have my sennheiser 280 pro headphones and my zalman clip on mic hooked into my DS4 controller. It's a bit overkill, but it sounds great.

    Splitter is a good idea. One thing that irks me is that the ps4 can't drive my DT880 250 ohm well. It drives my AD700 just fine though. But the telephone cord on the DT880 is much better to use with the controller, being shorter. Might just stick with AD700 though, at least they work to their potential.

    Ordered mine from ocuk as well, free USB stick and free haribo, win win.

    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD-032-CR

    I've ordered one of these while I was there for the PC as my old mechanical drive I keep my games on is starting to click and take ages to load things, half tempted to stick it in the ps4 and throw the hybrid drive in the PC.

    The hybrid is better off installed in the PS4. SSD's are best suited for PC's. Load times are massively reduced.

    What about doing a 7,200 rpm drive instead of a hybrid 5,400 rpm one?

    It would indeed be better suited to the PC, however I am somewhat curious, might give it a go just to see then throw it in the PC after.

    I added a 240GB SSD last night to test it. So far it does seem faster. Even on the PlayStation home screen it feels smoother, more responsive. Games load fast with less stuttering.

    I'm not trying to cause controversy. It was what I read on the link that was posted. I probably could have worded it much better, but the question I felt is a valid one, I know this isn't the time or place to discuss it. No offence intended.
