What do I need to know before buying a new HDD? –
I was looking around and saw that some HDD need a jumper to work on the PS3. Can someone elaborate on this? I also heard that Western Digitals Scorpio Blue HDD's stutter a lot. I would appreciate the help before I go spending my money.

Learn the sizes in inches. The PS3 uses a 2.5 inch drive.
