no, it does NOT have to be a 5400rp, drive. So many threads are out there with people putting solid state drives in. And different RPM drive won't affect that either. And, the port the drive connects to as SATA II, But, all sata 3 drives are backwards compatible with SATA II, Just as SATA II is backwards compatible with the first sata edition

As the PS4 FAQ States, as long as the HDD is a SATA Drive and NOT thicker than 9.5mm it will work, and larger than 160GB.

people can throw in a 7200rpm.....but then you risk overheating your hard drive which would be a big nono....

 

if you wanna risk that, let someone else do it first....

 

i rather be safe then sorry and throw in a another 5400.....speed is nice and all.....but ill settle for space and safety lol

The first thing I did before even powering on my PS4 was swap out the stock HDD with a 1TB Seagate Hybrid SSD/HDD. It is incredibly fast and agile, and a great investment for around $100.

 

Just don't forget you'll need to manually download and install the 1.5 update, which clocks in at around 850mb. There is a separate update that's only 300mb but it's the wrong one if you swapped out your drive.
