I really want to install a larger volume hard drive in my PS3. What is the best hard drive to consider?

5400 or 7200 doesn't really make too much difference, but i can tell you that the drive in there from factory is 7200rpm. it's a 2.5 inch drive asexplained above, and it's a Serial ATA.

Seagate and other companies are getting ready to release a 1TB 2.5 inch drive, but it's going to be of a form factor too big to fit into the PS3.

make sure you get a 9mm height, and it'll be fine.

Newegg has a 10% Coupon (with code EMCLSNM47) thatentitles you to take 10% off (up to $10) on all Internal, External, and Laptop Hard Drives excluding SSD.

I use a lot of space because I use ps3 media server. (http://code.google.com/p/...aserver/downloads/list). I stream a lot of hd movies and tv shows.When I like it I save it on the hard drive. 1080p and 720p movies take up alot of space. Especially if you get the whole set. Example. I have all the Star Warsmovies in 1080p. That's 48gig right there. On top of the demos, game installs, extra.

Factor in PS3 is supposed to be supported for another 4-5 years. You can fill up a hard drive quick.
