I have a 1TB SSD lying around here, and now I'm thinking if I should stick that in my PS4.

But then I see the instructions and it involves downloading a system update from somewhere and installing it using an extra drive of some sort.

@uliwitness Honestly it's so worth it, made a night and day difference to our PS4

@endocrimes Thanks, that was the encouragement I needed. I found a tutorial video from HyperX that doesn't gloss over the important bits (E.g. where the heck to get the OS). I've set up the USB key now, and I guess I'll wait for the backup to finish and depending on how long that takes, will do the install either on the side during the day, or on the weekend.

@uliwitness It's pretty easy, if you have a thumb drive lying around.

@darby3 Always the biggest problem with me. I have SD cards, hard drives, SSDs ... but USB keys ... I found one that was a gift from a conference. Let's hope it works, at least it is large enough. All my others are in the sub-GB spheres 😂
