We spend a lot of time playing games, and we spend a lot of time waiting for games to load.  The PS4 contains pretty impressive hardware, except for the Hard Drive.  These hard disk drives are slow, basic, cheap and were designed for laptops.  The outdated hard drives are actually the main problem for long load times.  Luckily Sony makes it possible to upgrade.  You have three options when upgrading your PS4 hard drive. Speed, Larger Storage, or Both.



Installing a SSD (solid state drive), will speed up booting and loading times by 50-75%.  SSD has no mechanical parts and have a much faster read/write performance allowing less wait times for loading, much faster re-spawning and fast traveling.

Larger Storage

Installing a larger HDD (hard disk drive) will allow you to install more games and not worry about deleting to make room for new ones.  The performance of normal HDD slightly varies, but for the most part the speeds will be like the original HDD included with the PS4.

Hybrid Drives

SSHD (solid state hybrid drive).  These are rather new hard drives that contain normal hard disk platters for storage, but also include fast solid state memory.  Hybrid drives allow for large storage capacities with a little extra speed.  These hard drives store files that are used often in the faster solid state memory so it can load faster.  SSHD drives can be faster than normal hard disk drives but are slower and less expensive than solid state.  Normally these drives improve loading time by about 25-50%.
