    Write speed of the PS5 internal drive is not great, about 230Mb/s when DF did their testing.

    So copying a 50Gb game from an external PCIE 3.0 NVME to the internal NVME is 3m37s while a 100Mb/s external HDD doing the same is around 8m33s

    One would have to weigh up if that 5 minute difference on the external NVME (1Tb) for R2.5k is worth it over an external HDD with double the capacity (2Tb) for R1k.

    The copying from the internal NVME to the external NVME would be much faster though.

    It was worth it for me. From internal to external was indeed much faster and for me, as important as the other way around. Using an external drive for storage goes both ways as you move games to and from the console storage. I would say it is worth the extra cash but yes, others might feel differently. Gen 3 m.2 drives are on special quite frequently. Also, I had a 1tb m.2 Which I pulled out of my laptop when I upgraded it to a 2tb so all I needed was the housing which was about R100 or so.
