Replacing the PS3 internal HDD with Hitachi 750GB
I'm thinking of replacing my PS3 internal HDD with a Hitachi 2.5" 750GB HDD (5K750). This drive is 9.5mm thick and should physically fit without issues. However, I read that some drives are not fully compatible with PS3 and may give stutter problems on certain games. Does anyone know if this Hitachi drive will work with PS3? Another note is that the Hitachi uses Advanced Format with 4K sector size, instead of the traditional 512Byte. Not sure if this is another factor to consider.
Here is the link to the Hitachi 2.5" 750GB drive.
