    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. 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!

    This review is from: Seagate Momentus 5400 500GB 5400RPM SATA 3Gb/s 8MB Cache 2.5 Inch Internal NB Hard Drive ST9500325AS-Bare Drive (Personal Computers)

    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.
