i'm hoping to find one at a cheap price this black friday. Well hopefully
@Jay what do you mean by using the 5400 to be safe? Are there reports of problems with the 7200 counterparts?
it's just a precaution, but 7200 might be fine. I don't think there was but maybe a few minor cases where a 7200 failed, but the same could be said about 5600. Either should work, but I was just saying most people recommend a 5600RPM drive based solely on original PS3 specs
Thanks for the tips everyone!
I'll look into it and possibly upgrade it, it get's annoying having to constantly clean up your game data and things of the sort!
the only problem is some games still bottleneck the installation speed on an HDD. Well, in MGS4's case anyway. Not sure of other titles have similar problems, but it definitely would be a lot better if SSD's became cheaper and standard. Less moving parts means more reliable anyway.
Here's what I want to know about upgrading your HD.
I have one PS3 so it's not like i can swap out the HD and then do the ethernet cable link update thing. How do you preserve your data on a single HD? Do i need to buy a 2.5inch case to store the old HD and then do a restore or what have you?
