(Only) good solution to expand memory on ps5.

  • Suitable for PS5
  • Is recognized immediately when you start the PS5 after installation

I own the PS5 Digital edition, and this is a somewhat affordable way to expand your memory. This can be done fairly easily, only opening the ps5 can take some time. When installed, the ps5 recognizes the ssd immediately, plug & play actually. I hope the price of these SSDs will drop a bit in the future.
