Mods and stuff

Post by GoMonkey66 on Sat May 07, 2016 9:32 pm

So what things have you done to your PS4, or added to it, or use regularly?  I did a LOT to my PS3, but haven't needed to do much to my PS4, but I HAVE done the following:

* swapped the HDD the day it was released for a 1.5TB SSHD.  Speed and capacity is great.  I have tons of stuff installed and still have approx. 300GB to spare
* got a five port USB 3.0 hub (arriving tomorrow) that has power switches for each port (more on that next).  This allows for a lot of connectivity and charging.
* added a 1.5TB USB 3.0 external hard drive, formatted in exFAT. Since I don't always use it for stuff, the power switches on the hub will come in handy.  I have tons of music that I've put on there, along with movies, and exFAT file sizes mean I can save huge BluRay rips or full HD video without breaking them up.
* I don't ever really use them for anything, but I have a wireless keyboard and mouse, with their dongles on the hub.  I can still have the HDD plugged in, and charge two controllers and my headset.
* I ditched the fucking annoying Astro A50's for the Sony Gold headset. Twice the headset at a third of the price.
I got thumb stick covers for my controllers because that shit they are coated with sucks and shreds.  Lol.

Because mine is on a pull-out drawer in the AV cabinet, it stays clean, so I haven't needed to do anything like replace the fan or anything...I just wipe the intakes of dust every few weeks.

Also...this shit is all criminal, but in case you wanted to try a few things: http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/forums/playstation-4-modding-tutorials.460/

I went in on the Sony headset too Monkey, much more convenient and I dont notice much difference at all.

Only thing is the mic quality isn't great. It doesn't suck, but that's one thing the Astros had over them. Except the Astros have that awful buzz.

well i dont talk to strangers anyway.

Just happy I get good sound and dont have to spend 15 min figuring out how to get my headphones to pair up.  I think the surround is a little synthetic, but that's ok since my ears are probably shot to hell at this point and cant pick up on more subtle tones.

Haha, yeah, same. The virtual surround sounds about as good to me as the 5.1 of the Astros.  I suppose it would make a bigger difference in locating sound sources, but it's not like I soundwhore in BF or anything. *shrug* Don't care.  It's worth it to not have to figure out why my headset doesn't pair, why the mic doesn't work, why audio balance is all out of whack, why they won't charge, why they won't turn on or off, or why I paid so much for such shitty gear.

say whaaaaat? you didnt like the A50's?

i loved mine had no issues what so ever. the only thing i didnt like was the fact that you had to use the usb receiver to use them. so i ended up getting some A40's.

They were ok....the sound quality for gaming was great, minus the piss poor noise filtering coming through USB. For movies and other audio sources they were average. They were heavy too. I liked the A40's better as well...none of the hassle and flakiness.  I had to return mine twice for inexplicable failures.  And probably could have three more times, but just put up with them.  They are worth it at probably half the price, but are in no way "the best" or deserving of all of the hype. Their support forums are nothing but pissed off people, lol.
