Bought this for my PlayStation 4 and I replaced my old 7200rpm hard drive with this thing and OMFG this thing is so FAST! This Hard Drive loads "Destiny 2" at 1 whole Minute faster on all game types in that game and it also loads the game up like 1:20 minutes faster as well it's really incredible! The fast travel in "The Division 2" went my usual 44/50 seconds to a psychotic super insane speed of 6/9 seconds! I mean God in heaven this thing is so much faster! And to top this off the PS5 SSD is supposedly 7 times faster than this hard drive! It's just really incredible and if you're tired of those slow loads times on all PS4 games then you might want to upgrade to something like this. Granted I understand that I went and bought the 4TB version but it really is an amazing drive!

This SSD offers largest capacity and also fast speed. Unlike the HDD, however you had to pay large sum of money for high capacity and fast storage and it's SATA interface limit the max R/W speed.

Currently one of the highest capacity consumer SATA SSD on the market, this SSD offers huge amount of capacity and high R/W which is limited by SATA 3 max bandwidth. However, 4TB SSD and bigger begin to offer lower GB per dollar (which equals lower value) than the lower capacity SSD in the market such as 2TB NVMe SSD (Intel 660p 2TB at $194-209).
