I bought 5x of the Toshiba drives when they went on sale last time. Good price, fast, and nice amount of storage. However, they are ridiculously loud. I can hear them spinning from across the living room even when I'm watching movies. So they're all getting returned. If you care about noise levels, stay away.

An Amazon reviewer had a noisy drive and got it replaced with a quiet one.

I have a 3TB Toshiba I bought earlier this year. The spin up and clicking is the loudest I have ever heard. Worse than those hard drives from the 80s and 90s.

I just picked up WD Red drives as replacements to put in my DS1515+. Cost more but at least I can't hear my drives spinning up anymore.

I had 5x of these in my DS1515+ for a week. Easy setup and seemed to work great except for the super loud drive spin and seek noise. Temperature was fine at 33C. Transfer speeds limited only by my network switch so overall, these drives seemed quite good as long as you don't mind the noise.

Will any of these work on a PS4? Are they recommended?

Eww... TLC drives. Low price, sure... but if you value your reliability and data over the long term (longer than 2-3 years) I'd make sure to only look into either MLC or eMLC internal SSD's. Make sure they are true MLC/eMLC drives too and not just a TLC with a small SLC cache built in, or else your sustained transfers that are larger than a few GBs are going to be slower than what you'd be expecting. Still better performance wise than a traditional HDD, but not as reliable or long lasting.

I'll second the loud noise on these drives. I have them in a external raid on my desk and everyone always comments on how noisy they are. I can hear them over my headphones.

Curious about that SK Hynex SSD... Haven't seen them on the market before... Seems like a decent drive, and a good price. Hynex has been a RAM chip manufacturer for a long time, I think their biggest competition in that market is Samsung... Maybe now they're going after Sammy with SSDs as well...

you do realize that everything and everyone is going to tlc right? you know that the Samsung evo and Sandisk x400, with 5 year warranties are tlc, right? you realize that the 3d tlc nand is a lot more reliable than what has been sold BM previously, right?

I have one, but it's only a couple of months old. the reason many don't know about this large Korean ssd mfg is because they're selling OEM drives to Dell, et. al.

if you have a a new Dell with an SSD, odds are that it's sk hynix. there's some talk that they're going to give Samsung a run for their money. time will tell.
