    Any HDMI cable is fine, I go with cheapest. unless you want a robust HDMI cable that can handle lots of handling all the time then useless buying a R300 cable. I pick mine for about R40. HDMI either works or doesn't.. There's no difference with quality of image between a cheap and an expensive one.

    The HDMI bundled with the PS4 does a decent job - no need to go another

    OK another question - is R675 a good deal for PS Plus for a year or am I better off holding out for some other sale?

    Seagate firecuda drive is the best performance upgrade you can do short of an ssd, great choice. It's significantly boosts speed especially on games where you repeat things over and over.

    If you get a new hdmi cable, make sure to get a 18gbps rated cable over the 10gbps old cables for peace of mind and hdr support or just 4k 60hz (10gbps cable cap out at 4k 30hz amd might get black screens from time to time due to lack of bandwidth)

    This.

    Before the PS4 launched I had the opportunity to buy seven years worth at R325 p.a. but thought that was overkill and what if I stopped using PS+. I would have saved so much money if I had just done it.

    I can vouch for these drives, have a 2TB in my PS and super happy with it. Best drives out there par going full SSD.

    Thank you!

    I guess I should mention that my current TV is not 4K, does that have any bearing on what cable I should get?
