    Amazing PS5 add on!

    Took longer to open the box than it did to install this in the PS5, highly recommended, As long as you can take the cover off (watch a youtube video first!) you can install this. only need a small phillips screwdriver

    Perfect For The PS5

    Installed the 1TB with heatsink into my PS5 yesterday and it was such a simple process. It benchmarked at 6700mbps on the test after the formatting. I'm super pleased and it's a perfect match for the PS5. Get yours now.

    WD makes an amazing SSD in the SN850

    The WD Black SN850 1TB SSD with heatsink is a high performing SSD option. With a small form factor and great build quality, this SSD looks fantastic! It is extremely easy to install and I can’t say enough about the speed!! So good! Worth every penny. The 1TB is a good option for PS5 owners looking to expand their storage. At 1TB, it more than doubles the PS5’s available space. Given the size of the games, it is worth considering the SN850 2TB, if you can find one. You’ll be extremely happy with either.

    Super easy install

    The only downside to this is that it didn’t come out sooner! Now that it’s out they’re hard to find but if you get your hands on one then you won’t be disappointed. One of the fastest M.2 SSDs and comes with a built in heat sink (a must have for the PS5). Took me five minutes to install and that includes taking the pics. Enjoy!

    They finally had it in stock at a local Best Buy

    Holy Crap, this SSD is the bee's knee's, it took me awhile to get ahold of one, as every time I tried to buy one, it was either sold out or available at a store, super far from me. One time luck struck though; as I was browsing to check if any where in stock, luck struck; some were in stock at a Best Buy, 30 miles away from me; of course I acted fast and now I can proudly say that I am a proud owner of a choice internal SSD.

    I bought this for my Playstation 5. It was simple to install and works just fine. Everything works just as fast as the original M.2 console SSD and now with 4tb of space i will not have to worry about Call of Duty taking up all the space.

    Best SSD Storage For PS5

    If you are able to get one (due to the continue situation with the current climate), then this is a must have. For the storage capacity (the price isn't suitable for most, but it's an SSD, so the price is what it is), this will be sufficient. After testing out a few PS5 games (Ghost of Tsushima, Spider-Man Remastered, Rift Apart, Miles Morales, etc), the games load just as fast, wven quicker, than the internal SSD.

    If you don't need all that storage, still get a Firecuda 530 (any TB will do). It works well for next gen and is worth the purchase. If there ever is a sale (give or take a few years), that will make this product even more attractive.

    Wow, what a great purchase

    Wow, this was a great purchase for the PS5. Installation was easy, and transfer of games from external drive to the new internal drive was fast and easy. Had 2tb of PS4 games to transfer. Game play is great. And best yet, still have room for more games. Very quiet.

    Crazy Fast!!!!

    When they said that this drive is insanely fast, they were NOT kidding! Pricey, yes, but its durability is worth the investment. Plugged it into my Playstation 5, transferred both PS4 AND PS5 games over to it, and both load in merely seconds. Definitely worth getting, trust me, you won't regret it!

    Perfect for PS5.

    Perfect for PS5, comes with a built in heatsink so you just plug n’ play. Heatsink is small enough so you can still close the PS5 m.2 slot with system cover, which sony directs us to do to allow best for the best cooling. the 1TB model is the sweet spot, good price and value. Read speeds well above sony’s minimum recommended for the PS5. Highly recommend.

    Review in PS5

    Bought this for use in a PS5. Meets all requirements and has the heatsink installed.

    Installation - easy peasy. Took no effort and fit perfectly. Tip though, make sure to put the metal SSD cover back in place. You may think leaving it off will allow it to cool easier, but this is wrong. The SSD bay and fan set up is made to pull the heat out of the SSD slot.

    Transferring - putting data onto it was extremely fast. A lot better than transfer times on externals. Took but a minute to transfer all my data.

    Performance - these specs can be found online. But I will say I saw no lag or issue on multiple games played from the drive. Saw no difference in load time.

    I recommend this for the PS5. Originally bought a WD Black, but after comparison and record for durability between the 2 companies, this was a better choice for me. I keep the console until the 6 somes out.

    Excellent PS5 add-on SSD

    Bought this for PS5. I am not a Call of Duty player so 1TB seems the right size. Very easy to install. PS5 recognized it as soon as I started it up and formatting it was simple. I have a pair of smaller games installed on it and they work perfectly. Unlike the installed original PS5 SSD, the formatting takes up very little space leaving 1000.1 GB usable for games. you can transfer games between drives. You cannot transfer the PS5 operating system or game saves to this drive. After formatting, the PS5 tested this drive showing a read speed of 6558 Mb/sec. That is slower than the 7000 Mb/sec claimed but remember that this drive can be used on some modern PCs and the PS5 operating system may have a slight bottleneck. The PS5 requires an add-on SSD drive to have a read speed of at least 5500 Mb/sec so this SSD easily meets that.

    Excellent storage expansion option for the PS5

    Bought this ssd to expand storage in my PS5 digital edition and it worked as advertised out of the box. Was fairly easy to install and I had zero issues with my PS5 recognizing, formatting and using it.

    Moving games from the internal ssd to the Firecuda was extremely fast, and had zero issues playing those games, as expected.

    Loving THIS!!!

    I am so glad I purchased this internal WD Black SSD with Heatsink. I enjoy having more game data being saved into my PS5 console. Please know that I received the PSD Beta tester code before purchasing this (should not be a problem with the latest PS5 update today or tomorrow). If you have a disc console, you will still need to use your disc to load games.

    I loaded the PS5 update first, turned unit off, then opened up my console (there are several YouTube videos of this), and placed the the SDD drive inside, and restarted PS5.

    Adding Storage to PS5

    Installed easily into PS5. Just works, and seems to be as fast as the PS5's internal storage.

    If you're using with PS5, definitely make sure you get the heatsink version. If you're buying for a desktop, check your motherboard, as it may already have a heatsink over the area where you can install SSDs. (E.g., the Asus gaming motherboard that I have does have a heatsink already for SSD installation. It's actually more difficult to install an SSD if it already has one. (Generally, as with the Asus, the motherboard heatsink can be removed, but that's just more steps. Theoretically, you could remove the heatsink from an SSD that has one, but that is prone to mistakes and potential harm to the SSD.)

    Pricey, but we’ll worth it at the end of the day

    Bought this drive when it came back in stock for my PS5. Works as intended. The design and heat sink looks super cool and apparently has RGB on it. For anyone wondering how much actual usable space there is after formatting my PS5 shows and allows 2 TB. So it doesn’t appear to be less than what’s on the box, some SSD’s will say 2 TB but only like 1.8 TB is available after formatting. Highly recommend

    Must have for PS5

    I went with the 2 TB variant with heatsink for my PS5 and its been a game changer (literally). Having the additional storage means I no longer have to miss out on opportunities to play certain games with friends. It really unlocks a level of comfort that's simply not possible with the stock storage on the PS5 being so limited.

    2 TB is about the minimum I'd recommend with the growing size of games nowadays. That'll allow you to install the latest releases as well as keep many games on you may have otherwise deleted to easily revisit later. Transferring titles between the internal SSD and the 2 TB variant is super fast (70 GB game in about 45 secs).

    The 2 TB variant and above have a write speed so that also contributed to my purchase. Its expensive but its a long term investment into this console cycle - well worth it.

    Fast SSD, perfect for PS5

    It fits perfectly in the PS5 and is blazingly quick as advertised. Two things stop me from giving this a higher score:

    1. The price, the 2 TB SSD is basically like buying another PS5. Hopefully with time and more chips become available the price drops

    2. This maybe more on the PS5 firmware than this SSD, but the speed reads as 6500 mb/sec not 7300. Not that it matters all that much as it is faster than the SSD in the PS5 but hopefully it won't affect performance as more demanding PS5 games come out in 2022 and beyond.

    Fast drive at a great price!

    This NVME isn’t messing around. It comes with a small but solid feeling heat sink and a little rgb for extra flare. I installed this into my PS5 quickly and painlessly although I did have to track down a small screwdriver for the petite screw to hold down the drive.

    According to the PS5 it’s reading at 6271.106 MB/s. I wanted an nvme with rgb because I wanted to see it through the side of my transparent side plates. There’s no way to control the rgb with the PS5 so it just kind of throbs yellow. I left the cover off it so I could see it, hopefully that won’t mess up the cooling.

    Overall initial impressions are good, if it’s anything like the other Western Digital made storage devices I’ve used for the past 20+ years I’m sure it will have excellent longevity.

    Excellent!

    Works great on my PS5. It’s no wonder that it’s the SSD recommended by Mark Czerny as it is blazing fast. Installation was easy and took about 1-minute. Highly recommend buying the version with the heatsink of you want zero hassles.

    PSS 5 must have.

    This ended up working great with my PlayStation 5. But a bit overpriced in my opinion. But it’s a must have for any PS5 owner.

    Works with PS5

    Has worked flawlessly with my PlayStation 5. Installation was easy. A bit pricey, but that’s to be expected.
