    MS is running circles around Sony in terms of thermal management. A One X has 50% more power, is smaller than a PS4 Pro and yet is mostly silent.

    But there has been a silent revision of the Pro, which appears to be a lot quieter.

    I've now ordered a new fan from Ali Express and some thermal paste.

    Is it really that bad? I wouldn't mind a pro also, but one of my main reasons is the noise my launch ps4 makes.
    As I said earlier in this (I think?) thread, the new model is said to be a lot less noisy, and I can definitely confirm that as far as mine is concerned. I occasionally hear it, but it's negligible, compared to my launch model (or even compared to the PSVR breakout box).

    Really happy with mine, at least for now, after the noise of the lauch model has soured my
    enjyoment of the console for years.

    Make sure it says CUH-7116 on the b
    ox. 70xx was the old series.

    So would it be right to asume that the Pro that comes with Fifa18 is the older model?
    Most places are sold out of the Pro with no extras, Shopto being one of them, but do still have the Pro/Fifa 18 version for the same price?

    I've got a white pro GOW bundle coming on Wednesday. Really hope that's a newer model.

    I recently picked up the white pro after my day one model bit the dust. It's magnificent.

    Just realised I've got a 4k set but it's a pre hdr one. Is it going to make much difference? The 4k set is in the play room, which is currently my retreat with the Switch if the Mrs has shite on the box. But we've got a shit hot 60" 1080p set that's night and day better picture than most sets I've seen, apart from the latest QLED one's I've seen on display. Just going to experiment with each one to see where it should go.

    Tbh HDR is really where it's at. You'll get a crisper picture for sure but the expanded range hdr brings to colours, contrast and brightness is what really sets them apart.

    Unless you have a really expensive true hdr10 tv and not a really good 4k but hdr10 supported like mine, hrd is crap. Many times Iíve turned the hdr off for a better picture.

    Yeah I'll bet. I can wait until some of this years or even last years Qleds come down in price. Just can't justify / afford getting another telly.

    Yeah the maximum brightness messes with the black levels on my tele, it's got quite limited local dimming so you can tell you're not getting the full effect but most games still look much better. When I've got the money I'll be going all in for an OLED.

    My mate was right about new PS Hardware this year. A 'Pro' version of the PS4 that is built with 4K TVs in mind so can obviously do 4K without checkerboarding, play 4K films from disc and obviously will have better build quality than the 'base' model.

    Yes itís strange that there is not a single pro in stock. Maybe the success of God of War is the reason they have flew off the shelves.

    That's the only reason the guy on the phone from Shopto could think of. I find it hard to believe that one game can be the cause though.

    I think a lot of deals involved the white pro and the GOW game for £349 which is a good deal.

    The Mrs only got mine late last week and I've been looking at the deals up until Monday and everywhere had it in stock. Seems weird that they're suddenly sold out.
