You can currently find it on Amazon Seagate FireCuda 530 SSD 2TB on sale. The price for the variant without heatsink is included 234.99 euros at a very good level. The price is not only 25 euros below the next best price. According to price comparisons, the saving of 41 percent compared to the RRP is the best in history. In fact, after long-term price observation and testing of PS5 SSDs, we can confirm that the Seagate FireCuda is not only rarely reduced and in terms of performance, but is also more affordable than ever – at least until now.

Amazon calls for the version with heat sink, which can be used for the PS5 without cooler conversions or additions 259.99 euros on. That too is a historical price low. The next best competitor is asking for almost 30 euros more at 11:30 a.m. Both variants work in a PS5 and achieve the best values. Mind you, you can still do without the cooler in a PS5 with average use. Due to its size, the variant with heat sink cannot be used in all laptops that support memory expansion. That would be the most important thing to consider.

The Seagate FireCuda 530 as a 2 TB variant was the only SSD to achieve maximum transfer rates in our SSD test. The Phison E18 controller can enable the full 7GB/s or more in both directions (read and write). Data-intensive applications are thus possible on the current optimum before PCI-Express 5 can provide a replacement across the board and at an affordable price.

Tested on a PS5, the FireCuDa 530 is the best possible storage upgrade if you’re concerned about more exotic manufacturers like Teamgroup. With the PS5, the FireCuda 530 was able to convince without exception with the expected reductions in loading times. The price has always been well over 300 euros. In our opinion, you can’t go far wrong from 235 euros if you want to expand the PS5 memory with the right performance requirements and 2 terabytes of capacity or don’t plan to set up a PCI Express 5 system in the foreseeable future. However, you can currently save with alternative SSDs, which you can find in the following reading tip.

The SSD installation in the PS5 is not difficult.  We reveal in the test whether an expensive extension is worthwhile.
