I looked back through the last dozen pages and may have missed this topic, but I doubt it, so:


What is best HDD for a slim PS3, currently?


I'm worried, probably irrationally, but nonetheless, that my existing PS3 will bite the dust, so I'm looking at getting a back up and I was wondering what's the largest HDD capacity/brand/model/etc that I should invest in for the spare.

I have two of these hard drives in my PS3's which have worked flawlessly.

Seagate Samsung Spinpoint 1.5TB M9T 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5-Inch Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive (ST1500LM006) - $77.87 Cost


It is my understanding that some 2TB drives work with PS3's (read reviews on Amazon) but you may experience some system functionality issues as Sony only intended/patched PS3 to be compatible with 1.5 TB drives or smaller.
