Are you having problems with the hard drive for your PS4? Is the one you have fine, but you would like to have a lot more storage space?

If so, you will need to buy a new hard drive for your PS4 and, of course, you will want to get the best hard drive you can for the money you can afford.


As looking for hard drives can be time consuming, here are a few tips that can help.


Start with reviews — Before you even consider buying a new PS4 hard drive, be sure you know what is out there.

What types of hard drives are available? What can they do that your current one cannot? What is their performance like? How many frames per second can you expect to get with a specific game, and will the hard drive you are interested in be able to play the games you like the most?

Finally, look at the prices of all of the reviewed PS4 hard drives, so you know the amount of money you are going to have to spend.


Get recommendations from other gamers — Gamers are a massive source of help for anyone looking to buy a new hard drive, so do be sure to use this resource.


Join a chat room that is populated by other PS4 gamers and ask for recommendations for specific hard drives. You should get a large number of recommendations, as well as information about why one hard drive is better than another one, and which you should avoid depending on the games you like to play.


Consider PS4 compatible hard drives — There are many hard drives out there for the PS4, including those that are lower priced but are still compatible.


Be sure to also ask for recommendations for PS4 compatible hard drives and research into them as well. Just because they are not one of the hard drives recommended by Sony themselves, that does not mean they will not be good hard drives. Especially as they are often a lot cheaper.


Price comparison sites and apps — Once you have decided on a hard drive to buy for your PS4, you will now want to find the beat price for it. There are two easy ways to do this.


First, find a website that has the PS4 hard drive you want and copy the URL. Then go to one of the popular price comparison sites and submit that URL. The site will then point you in the direction of any other site that sells the same PS4 hard drive for a lower price.


You can also run the name of the specific hard drive you want through a free shopping app. These apps come up with lists of online sites selling all kinds of things, including PS4 hard drives and they will always show you the ones with the lowest price.


On a shopping app, you can even set it up so it informs you when the PS4 hard drive you want falls in price.
