best replacement hard drive for ps3

5 replies 6934 views Edited Jul 9, 2010

Anybody know what hard drive works best for ps3 i found a lot of people have been using western digital,but i found one review that said on games like god of war that download directly to the ps3 hard drive does not have to run the game the entire time,so once it is not running for a long time,it will shut itself off which will freeze up the system and make you turn it off and back on again after playing for 45 minutes ANY SUGGESTIONS.

WD scorpio black(7200rpm) or blue(5400) IMO are best for the price, like $60 for 500gb 3 year warranty

I have a seagate 320gb and have had no problems.

 

I haven't heard of freezing issues related to the HD, but I would not be suprised.

Great question, see my somewhat similar Q else where, with some good help from nice people.

 

Andyway I've been eyeballing this bad-boy. But since I have no tech kno how I'm not sure if it's a good for for the PS3...
