How easy is it to change the HDD in the new ultra slims or is it even possible?

Money will buy you a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.
If you don't have a sense of humor, you probably don't have any sense at all.

cool, thanks. I have the 80GB MGS4 model, but I had to reflow it recently and now it screams like a banshee when turned on. Thinking of buying a new one and just putting my 500 GB HDD in

reflow is just a bandaid, and it will ALWAYS sound louder anyway.

 

reball is the only way to properly fix a ylod PS3.

If you weren't aware, moving a HDD to another PS3 will require reformatting, so make sure you back up your data first, or just use the data transfer utility.

You getting a 1 tb hdd? It's worth it. They're practically the same price as the others.
