i was looking at getting a new hard drive for my ps3 slim i have and i foudn this one
will this one work correctly or no? its 1tb and i work on alot of music and my ps3 is part of my studio and i need all the space i can get. I read the reviews on Newegg and those who have installed it in their ps3's says it works fine but i want to make sure it does n plus with me using a slim i dont want to destroy my system. its a 2.5 8mb cache,5400 rpm,everything checks out like the standard drive,just more space. but i was hoping to see if anyone else on here has bought it already n tried it.
So you trust PS forum users more than newegg users? I don't see any reason it wouldn't work, and if people are saying it does, then it probably does. The main thing to look for is they physical size of the HDD, and this one fits the 9.5mm height, so it should be fine.
Hi KRMME, I replaced the HD in my old 80Gb model some months ago with a Western Digital Scorpio Black wd5000bpkt 500GB, took out the old slower Seagate HD and put the new drive in and in the blink of an eye it was working. The WD drive is the fastest drive on the market for its size, unless you are rich and want to put an SSD drive in. As far as I know you are limited to a format size of 500GB even if you use a 1TB drive. I would recommend the WD drive as it does load games faster, especially if you play GT5. Please feel free to asl any questions.
Already upgraded it with a Samsung 750 gb drive,had a one TB picked out but I choose Samsung instead. Ever since I've upgraded fallout 3 m new vegas n final fantasy 13 run more detailed and clearer. Its a 540w0 rpm like the standard drive but works wonders.
