    Great PS3 Hard Drive Upgrade!, December 15, 2009
    By

    I bought this hard drive to replace the 40GB hard drive on my PS3. I was almost about to trade mine in so I could buy a PS3 slim with more capacity. Searching for buying options I found out that you could upgrade your hard drive without voiding the warranty, and in only 20 mins with only a screwdriver and a steady hand. I was running out of space fast due to downloading movies and TV episodes. I reviewed several other drives before choosing this one. The Seagate stuck out above the rest for two main reasons:

    -First being that the original hard drive in my PS3 is a Seagate, so if Sony trusts them so do it. I also decided to stick with 5400 rpms because that is the spec for all PS3s, and the 7200s have gotten some poor reviews for noise, heat, and no real gain in performance. Also I heard some 7200’s are a little thicker than the 5400’s therefore some do not actually fit in the PS3’s expansion bay.

    -Second, reviews (on another site) rated it very high, and nobody had had a problem with it. Also the prices on the SATA 2.5 inch drives have all gone down in the last few months so that was enough reason to make the investment. I highly recommend this hard drive for use with the PS3, it is quiet, runs cool, and was installed with ease.

    INSTALLATION: If you are going to upgrade your hard drive use a #1 phillips screw driver (#2 is the most common) or you will strip the small screws that secure the drive to it’s cradle. If you strip or bugger those screws you are looking at least a few weeks to order them from Playstation. Also, make sure you have a compatible (FAT32) USB flash drive so you can download the most recent update. I have used both Sony and SanDisk USB drives and they work fine. After swapping out the old hard drive the console will prompt you to update the system via USB or CD. You must download it from PS3.com. Create a folder called PS3, and inside that folder another called UPDATE, and store the update inside that one. Make sure you use all UPPERCASE or it won’t recognize it. After that the PS3 will format the new drive for you. Happy gaming!

    UPDATE (6/23/12): This drive has performed flawlessly and since my review it has been moved from my original 40GB PS3 into one of my new PS3 slims. My old PS3 40GB got the yellow light of death but I was able to get it running to perform a backup. I then swapped the drive into my PS3 slim, which was pretty much the same installation as my older PS3. For anyone interested I used the DIGISTOR 500GB External Hard Drive for Playstation 3 (PS3) – USB 3.0 / 2.0 to complete the transfer easily. Most external hard drives need to be partitioned and formatted to be used with the PS3 file system but this particular drive comes ready to use out of the box. I backed up my hard drive and then recovered it onto my new PS3 slim. It also offers you a piece of mind in case the YLOD strikes in the future.

    I used this drive for my PS3. Very simple to install, the PS3 asked to format my new drive, and after the format, I had 500 gigabytes of space. My old drive was only an 80 gig.
