    Hybrid Drives are good, ESPECIALLY for PS4 where you can replace the drive and put the entire OS on the Hybrid Drive.  It helps boot times and things like that out a lot.

    SSD = Not worth the money, not on a console.  Great for PCs, though.  Not even sure Consoles can properly optimize the SSDs, like a PC does, so I'd like to see how they perform after some time on those consoles before I plop down the premium to get one.  Platter discs offer too big a $/GB value over SSDs to justify spending that much money on something that honestly isn't going to increase your performance by a ton (at least judging by the benchmarks I've seen on it).

    Hybrids are more economical, and are worth considering for something like a PS4 where you can put it in the console and install the OS to it.
