The best SSD for PS5 enables you to upgrade your PlayStation's storage without having to use a bulky external hard drive. Because let's face it, these days 825GB of internal space just isn't enough. For instance, just three modern titles – God of War Ragnarök, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and The Last of Us Part I – will already take up over 200GB.

It's fairly easy to install the best SSD for PS5. Simply pop off the faceplate, unscrew the SSD slot and pop the card in. If you scroll down to the bottom of this article, you'll find a video tutorial and more info to help you out.
