Good evening. I am looking to upgrade my Ps4's internal drive from shitty 400GB to 2TB. The drive I am looking at buying is pic related. The drive needs to be less than 9.5mm thick, and the one in question is not. My question is, can I (safely) remove the case of the SSD, thus making it thin enough to fit in my ps4?

Google "ssd thickness"

OP here. Unless I'm a retard and was looking at the wrong one, the one I have in mind is 12.7 mm. But I was wondering if it's safe to take the case off of it? Or would that get me anywhere

Which one did you have in mind? You sure the case has an SSD in it?. I remember back in the day little portable drives were available but just had regular small laptop HDDs and not SSDs. I never seen an SSD in a case.

The ps3 was limited to sata 1 speeds because of the connector. ps4 is probably simillar too. Google tells me it's only sata 2 meaning you won't be taking advantage of an ssd in a ps3.

Really? So you're saying it'd be just as fast with an hdd?

Okay so I looked it up again and it doesn't say anywhere that it's ssd. Well shit I must have been assuming. My apologies

Not quite. There will be a general improvement since it's still faster than the default harddrive in the ps4 but if you were to put the ssd in a pc the improvement would be much larger.

There's also other stuff like IOPS that the ssd has which might be an improvement over an hdd in a ps4 but I don't know about it.

Okay. I read the page on this product. Dude, this is a external harddrive that only has a usb connector. It's gonna be super slow if you have it connected - which you can't, cause it's a usb and not a SATA connector. You need one that is SATA 2+ but you won't find one of them cause they're outdated. You can buy a SATA 3 harddrive. SATA 3 can work with the ps4 because it's backwards compatible. It will just be limited to sata 2 speeds.

What you can do is search for

"2.5 sata" like pic related.

I see there's boxes you can tick on the left.
Here's a link with them checked. Many of the products have "for Sony PS4" in the title so it will work
