    Is there a GB size max a PS4 doesn't recognize beyond? Can the PS4 use any HDD at and speed higher that 5400? Or does it only work with 5400? Does any SATA HDD work? Or only a SATA II? I do know 2.5 is a dimensional physical limit.

    I'm no tech-spert so it all just confuses me.

    you can use ssd's if you are willing to invest that much money into it. i wouldnt use anything less than a sata ii and the drive wont benefit from sata iii so really no point in putting 1 in there.

    what i did was get a external 2tb hdd, crack it open and put it in the ps4, then put the 500gb back in the external casing and got a 500gb hdd from it

    Is 2 TB the highest a PS4 can go internally? Every tutorial or video I've seen only use the 2 TB.

    im not sure really, 2tb was the most affordable when i did it in 2014 or 2015. i think the limit is 4tb.

    you can actually use external HDDs now too with one of the most recent firmware updates if you dont mind having it attached to your console via USB. i dont do this but it is a option.

    Laptop drive 2.5" 5400 2TB is what you'll end up with. Seagate. I have been clipping and doing all sorts of recording, buying some games digitally and I have only used 1TB and I haven't deleted anything.

    You should be just fine.

    I did the 7200 or 7400 with the PS3 but it wasn't like my transfer speed or write was anything noticeable.
