Our 1st PS4 internal hard drive comes straight from the good folks at OWC. Not only do you get blessed with a 2TB Seagate/Samsung HDD, you’ll also get a ton of extra goods with this bundle. You’ll receive an OWC Express USB 3.0 Black Enclosure, an extra USB cable and a screwdriver to make installation simpler.

2. Western Digital 1TB 2.5″ Playstation 4 Hard Drive (PS4)
Western Digital knows a thing or two about producing items that tech heads truly appreciate. For the PS4, they’re managed to put together a 1TB HDD. This HDD is capable of working with any PS4 model that’s been released since launch. It’s best if you purchase a separate USB Flash Drive with at least 1GB of free space. That way, you can back up your game saves and download system updates on it just so you can install it on your PS4 later. This 1TB HDD is a godsend for gamers who take full advantage of their PS4.
3. 1TB 7200RPM Hard Drive Upgrade Kit for Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4)
Our 3rd pick comes from Oyen Digital, who has also decided to sell PS4 owners an internal hard drive bundle. Along with a 3-year warranty that comes with your purchase, you’ll also get equipped with a brand new 1TB HDD. You’ll also get an 8GB USB Flash Drive for backup, a USB cable, a 2.5-inch HDD enclosure to safely encase your new hard drive and a screwdriver to help you get to work.

Seagate makes a ton of great hard drives for PC’s and game consoles. We chose to feature their Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable External Hard Drive, which is capable of coming with 200GB of extra cloud storage from the company itself. This HDD doesn’t just come in a 2TB size, though. You can also get it in the following sizes – 500GB, 1TB, 4TB and an even faster version of the 4TB edition.

5. Data Bank for PlayStation 4
And for our final pick comes from this recently released internal hard drive for the PS4. Nyko knows just how problematic 4TB and higher HDD’s can be once installed in a PS4, which is why they’ve decided to produce a 2TB version. Instead of going with a 2.5-inch sized hard drive, Nyko’s Data Bank has decided to go with a faster and cheaper 3.5-inch hard drive. All you have to do is pop the PS4 top, cop out the old HDD and then install Nyko’s Data Bank on top. BOOM! You’re done and now you have 2TB of PS4 HDD to keep you gaming. One cool feature is the Nyko Data Bank’s ability to notify you with LED lights, which lets you know when the PS4’s saving or using the HDD.
