    Default New PS3 HDD

    Just getting ready for the PS3 JB and want to upgrade my internal HDD.

    Can you recommend me a new HDD 1tb or over.

    Are you after an internal replacement mate? The 750GB WD Caviar Blue is the biggest you can get internally at the moment - the 1TB drives are 12.5mm high and so don't fit.

    Or are you looking for a drive that will sit externally?

    I think an internal would be best but I am open to all suggestions.

    I already have a WD 1tb external that is connected to my Acer Revo.

    I'll take a look at the 750GB WD Caviar Blue, is there another internal option?

    How about an external?

    Have to admit I've not seen the external ones - asked about it on here the other day and someone posted up the enclosure that gives an external SATA port - in theory you could go as big as the filesystem used by the internal drives allows!

    As for other internal options these should do:
    Code:
    Samsung SpinPoint M7E HM641JI 640GB
    Western Digital WD6400BEVT 640GB
    Western Digital WD6400BPVT 640GB
    Western Digital WD7500BPVT 750GB
    Seagate Momentus ST9640320AS 640GB
    Toshiba MK7559GSXP 750GB
    Note - the Western Digital WD7500KPVT 750GB will NOT fit as it's the larger height drive as are the current 1TB SATA models from Toshiba and WD

    Am I correct in thinking that the drive needs to be 9.5mm in height?
