(Pocket-lint) - LaPlayStation 5 ha estado disponible por un buen tiempo y muchas personas están comenzando a expandir sus colecciones de juegos hacia la capacidad máxima del disco duro interno.

Los 825 GB de la consola de Sony son suficientes para unos pocos juegos, pero, si constantemente estás buscando nuevos títulos y quieres mantener tu progreso guardado, es posible que tengas dificultades. Entonces, la solución es explorar algunos de los principales SSD externos de PS5.

Una actualización de software posterior al lanzamiento ahora significa que puede mover los juegos de PS4 y PS5 al almacenamiento externo, y ahora también podemos finalmente expandir el almacenamiento interno .

Si bien la mayoría de las unidades externas no pueden igualar la velocidad de la propia unidad de la PS5, lo que significa que tampoco puedes jugar directamente desde ellas, obtendrás velocidades de transferencia mucho más rápidas y un dispositivo más pequeño.

Hemos reunido algunas de las mejores selecciones para usted aquí mismo, todas las cuales hemos probado internamente en nuestras propias máquinas.


¿Cuál es el mejor disco duro externo para PS5? Nuestra principal recomendación actual es el Samsung T7 Touch . Otras excelentes opciones incluyen Seagate Firecuda SSD , WD_Black P50 , SanDisk Extreme Portable y Gtech G-Drive Mobile .


Nuestra mejor elección: disco duro externo PS5

Para

  • Gran seguridad biométrica
  • Velocidades de transferencia rápidas

Contra

  • No hay mucho de malo en eso

Este SSD de Samsung es fantástico: tiene un precio bastante decente para el almacenamiento que obtienes, con tamaños más grandes disponibles, pero también viene con un escáner de huellas digitales que lo hace increíblemente seguro.

Obtendrá velocidades de transferencia realmente rápidas a través de su cable USB-C, y apenas ocupa espacio. Es la mejor apuesta para la mayoría de las personas.

Seagate Firecuda SSD

squirrel_widget_336537

Para

  • De confianza
  • Grandes velocidades

Contra

  • Un poco grueso
  • Caro

Seagate es un gran problema en almacenamiento, en caso de que no lo supiera, y tiene una variedad de unidades disponibles, pero su gama Firecuda está específicamente dirigida a los juegos.

Este SSD externo es bastante caro, no hay forma de escapar de eso, pero también es muy rápido y nos gusta mucho su diseño iluminado. Para 1 TB adicional de almacenamiento, es una gran apuesta.

WDMejor SSD para PlayStation 5 2020: almacene su colección de juegos en estas unidades externas foto 1

SSD WD_Black P50 NVMe de 1 TB

squirrel_widget_176859

Para

  • Buen diseño
  • Dirigido a jugadores

Contra

  • Muy caro

Sin embargo, si realmente desea duplicar la cantidad de almacenamiento, esta unidad de WD_Black tiene la marca de juegos y tiene un diseño realmente resistente.

También es impresionantemente rápido y funciona muy bien con otras consolas, no solo con la PS5. Sin embargo, nuevamente terminas pagando un poco más de lo esperado por el 1TB de almacenamiento que obtienes.

SSD portátil Sandisk Extreme

squirrel_widget_169154

Para

  • Realmente resistente
  • Bonito diseño pequeño

Contra

  • No son las velocidades de transferencia más rápidas

SanDisk tiene una de las unidades más diminutas que existen en la forma de su Extreme Portable, que es realmente pequeña y se engancha fácilmente incluso en un llavero o en cualquier otro bucle.

Eso lo hace excelente si desea mover su colección, ya sea dentro de su hogar o en una fiesta LAN u otro lugar. También tiene un precio realmente agradable dado lo resistente y confiable que es.

SSD móvil Gtech G-Drive

squirrel_widget_169155

Para

  • Nuevamente, diseño robusto realmente fuerte
  • Valor sólido

Contra

  • Velocidades medias

G-Technology ha manejado una táctica similar a SanDisk aquí, al equilibrar la robustez con la velocidad, y esta unidad es específicamente fuerte cuando se trata de protección contra caídas: ¡no se elimina por unos pocos rebotes!

Sin embargo, también tiene un buen precio y un tamaño conveniente, que es la clave real para ingresar a esta lista.

How to choose an SSD for your PS5

Here are some questions to ask yourself as you go about picking an SSD for your PS5.

How much extra storage do you need?

The first big thing to check in on is how much extra space you really think you need. If, like us, you find yourself having to delete games too often because a monster like Call of Duty: Warzone is taking up too much of your real estate, that might mean you can work out how much added room would be useful.

Most SSDs can be found in variations from 250GB up to 1TB, so be sure to pick up the right amount for your needs. Be warned, though - bigger drives obviously cost more!

Should you get an internal drive instead?

You can also add more space for your PS5 directly by installing an internal SSD, although the limits on what type of drive will fit and work are more restrictive. This is well worth looking into, especially if you want to store primarily PS5 games, since you'll be able to play them directly from the bigger drive inside your console.

Are you planning to store PS4 games?

If the collection of games you're looking to offload from your console's built-in storage is primarily from the last generation, then an external SSD is perfect. You can plug it in and play them directly from the SSD, after all, making for minimal moving around of software.

Más sobre esta historia

Todos los productos de esta lista se han probado en situaciones de la vida real, tal como los usaría en su vida diaria.

Con los SSD se trata de dos factores principales: velocidad y capacidad. Estamos comprobando qué tan rápido podrá mover sus juegos entre la PS5 y su SSD y, una vez que estén allí, a qué cantidad podrá acceder sin necesidad de volver a moverlos a la consola. .

Además de eso, las bonificaciones como la seguridad biométrica, la calidad de construcción y la impermeabilización solo pueden agregar a cuánto nos impresiona una unidad, mientras que la etiqueta de precio adjunta también es una variable clave.

Al igual que con todas nuestras guías del comprador, es imposible entregar una lista que funcione para cada tipo de usuario, pero juzgamos estos factores y nos apoyamos en las opiniones de los expertos del equipo de Pocket-lint para determinar una selección selecta de teléfonos para recomendar.

Lo que siempre tendemos a evitar al compilar estas selecciones son las comparaciones de especificaciones detalladas y la jerga de marketing; solo queremos proporcionar un resumen fácil de entender que le dé una idea de cómo es el uso de cada teléfono. Nuestros veredictos son concisos, pero esto es puramente en aras de la brevedad. Tenga la seguridad de que todas las cosas de esta lista se han probado por completo.
