one thing i hate about cloning is that, depends on how big the data reside on the HDD.

and the cloning speed is bottleneck by the HDD.

so whoever getting it at a "small price", good luck.

Ssd does not benefit ps4/pro as much a pc would. You can check youtube on loading diff. At best just get a sshd.

SSD doesn’t improve the speed of PS4, have tested before.

hey guys, yea i believe it does help decreasing the loading times of many games like open world with lots of graphics running about. Given the choice between ssd or sshd i would go for ssd since price difference isnt that high and it is more "future proof" since i can recycle it as ext or use it for laptops.
mainly im buying for division 2, load times as compared on youtube are quite significant with at least 30% not forgetting the loading of gfx.

so ya.. anyone bought lower than $145/tb for mx500? still waiting for coupons from qoo10.

thanks guys! TGIF!
