What’s good, Tech Talk? Got a question for people who’ve upgraded their PS3 hard drives, preferably those who’ve had a larger HDD in their system for a while now.
I have a 60 gig fat (w/ BC compatibility) and am used to having a bit of room to play with video files and demos, but now my DLC, PSN purchases, and installed games have piled up. I’ve already synced my trophies, copied saves over to a flash drive, and run the back up utility to an external USB drive.
The actual installation process looks easy enough, but I’d just like to know what drives people have installed in their PS3s and how they’re performing - What manufacturer, model, and capacity? What about heat/sound compared to the stock drive? How long have they lasted?
Also, what did you do with the old drive? Any enclosures you’d recommend?
I’m leaning towards the following:
I could go a little cheaper for a 5400rpm drive or different brands (like Western Digital), but I think paying $10 for better performance and manufacturers who are considered the best in the notebook drive business isn’t too bad.
