Hard Drive Upgrade Q

2 replies 80 views Edited Jan 19, 2013

Howdy y'all, I gotta question about a new 1TB hard drive I'm slapping into my PS3 this year (thanks a lot PS+--no sarcasm).

 

Since I'm gonna' stick with a 5200 RPM (my PS3 Slim gets fairly hot rather quickly) is it better to have a Hybrid drive with 8mb cache or a regular drive with 32/64mb cache? Sorry I'm very uninformed of these matters.  Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Tahnk you.

From what I understand a hybrid drive will basically cut down on loading times, and is more expensive.

A standard 5200 HDD is fine for the PS3, and was designed for that type of HDD..
