    People are reporting overheating and memory corruption problems when used with their PS5... https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales/ ... ie_40_ssd/

    It's a safe buy anyway with Amazon return policy

    Here's a test using the PS5 drive cover and with the cover off. The temps are cooler with the cover off by about 5 degrees C, depending on the test.
    https://www.tomshardware.com/features/p ... -testing/3

    The temperatures reported in the article are for WD850 and Samsung 980 Pro drives but I would imagine that the results would be similar with other drives.

    Yes, this fits the PS5 with lots of room to spare for a larger heatsink.

    I just installed mine and it came with the latest firmware (3.2.F.P7) and the PS5 reported 6445MB/s speeds after formatting.

    For "normal" use, not really. If you copy big files from one pci 4.0 nvme to another then you'd notice a difference.

    They're more expensive (and heatsinkless) but Amazon.ca sells the WD SN850 and Samsung 980 Pro that have the necessary speeds for the PS5.

    I have one of these in my PS5 and it works completely fine without issue. Great price too.

    I did get a heat sink as well though. Highly recommended if you are expanding your ps5 storage.

    3.2.f.2a is actually the latest, although the Toolbox app won't offer an update.

    I had this for a couple weeks until one day it started freezing and bluescreening over and over. I was about to RMA it but after formatting and not writing to it for a couple days, it started working fine again. It's been 10 days now w/o a freeze so I'll keep it unless it starts acting up again.

    Same price at Best Buy as well. Really contemplating it for my PS5, but see people here and there posting about issues. Might just cough up the extra for a WD or Samsung, but then at those prices I don't need the extra storage that bad haha.

    I can't locate the 3.2.F.2A version of the firmware and the updater showed that the latest firmware (3.2.F.P7) was released within the last month. (end of October)
    Date wise, it seems newer but I had read that the .2A version does improve speeds to about 7400MB/s, it was pulled, for some reason.

    no issues for me so far..running mostly my ps4 games in it..tested a couple of ps5 games and has been smooth…transfer rate is as advertised..using it with a 3rd party heatsink..i find the one included is too thin..

    my use case is really for playing ps4 games (eternal backlog) and as storage for finished ps5 games..

    I do data recovery on a hardware level and I can confirm that I have recently received a case of Adata Gammix S70 Blade 1TB AGAMMIXS70B-1T-CS that has suffered from controller overheating and failure. This is not related to a recent bad firmware update. The Innogrit controller failed in this case.

    Might be a stupid question, but is that something a better heatsink would help avoid?

    You can get 3.2.f.2a here:

    Bought this at 159.99 ...honestly best purchase ever for my PS5.
    Comes with a heatsink and loads game really really fast.

    My base space on my PS5 got full after a couple of games with this 1TB expansion I was able to have lots of things ready to play.

    Good value.

    Buy before they gimp the components on this generation in 18 to 24 months.

    Always keep one eye on ADATA, they're shifty.
