Hello guys, I was looking for an HDD upgrade for my PS4.
I came across two options:
A New Firecuda SSHD 1TB for 65$
An used Seagate ST2000LM007 HDD 2TB for 45$

I'm running a bit low on budget, therefore I would need some advice on which one should I pick.
 
The Firecuda has the 5 year warranty from Seagate.
While the 2TB HDD doesn’t, but CrystalDiskInfo indicates that the hard drive itself is fine.
The SSHD needs a warranty, they have a reputation for failing. The HDD will probably be ok, consoles are not that demanding on drives. Just if you are unlucky and it prematurely fails you loose $45. This is more a question of your appetite for risk.
