Back on topic, I have an older Seagate Momentus 500gb 5400rpm drive that I got from Amazon a few months ago, and its been working perfectly. In the past I've had bad experiences with Western Digital drives (had several fail in servers at work), but rarely have I had issues with Seagate drives. And the drive I got was 5400rpm so it should run a bit cooler than the 7200rpm drives.

Having said that, ALL hard drives which are mechanical (not SSD) are definitely prone to failure. Check our reviews on Amazon for all the brands, and you'll find a mixture of very happy customers, and very unhappy ones from failed drives. I just checked the WD Scorpio Blue 500gb reviews and they're mixed just like they are for the Seagate drives.

Oh and also I have about 10 Seagate external hard drives ranging from 80gb to 640gb, different styles, and not one has ever failed on me. Some are portable drives, some are desktop drives, and they've all been great.

Looking forward to the day that internal and external SSDs become reasonably priced (for 500gb+ capacity), they're just a bit pricey right now, and current consoles just don't take advantage of the speed gains for Sata III/SSD.

Gentleman,

How do you if a drive will fit? I just just spent 30mins looking it up on google, all the guides just say make sure is 2.5 and 12mm and that its SATA, not IDE>. but what are the exact spec's needed?

1. is there an OFFICIAL website or listing of them? specs that is?

2. I am looking at this one.. WILL THIS WORK? its 2.5...

3. I know its pretty standard stuff, but is there a website guide out there for us non techies?

No that won't work. You need an internal 2.5" inch laptop drive. An external drive won't work unless you tear it apart to fit it inside the PS3. I believe any 2.5" internal drive will fit in the PS3.

Well he can crack it open and take out the HDD. Based on MikeB User Review (page 2) he says the HDD inside is a HN-M750MBB (Samsung) has 8mb of Cache, 5400 RPM and its a SATA Gen2 3.0GB/s.

Which is basically this drive: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822152290

I already ordered the drive from the OP, but damn... now I'm tempted to tell NewEgg to not send it and send me instead the STBX750100. That way I can have a 750 GB HDD and an enclosure to put the old PS3 drive in. I mean, the HDD from the OP is faster, but for 10 bux more you can get a HDD Enclosure and 250 GB more and since its 5400 RPM it might not heat up the PS3 that much.

Check reviews on Newegg, a fair number of failed drives. Sadly this us pretty common for all the mechanical drives.

Does anyone know if Gamestop or anywhere else takes trade-ins for PS3 hard drives? I'm sure they don't, but i'd like to be wrong.
