whats the largest internal hard drive i can put in my ps3
whats the largest internal hard drive i can put in my ps3 –
i am wondering what is the largest hard drive i can put in my ps3, because i got told the biggest that you can is 500gb, is that true.i don't know weather to get the 320gb or the 500gb, as my ps3 is just 40gb and i already have a external one but some ps3 games dont play from that. so can any one tell me what is the biggest hard drive you can put in your ps3 without it breaking. help
I don't know what the largest is, but I have a 640 in mine and have read people putting in 1 terabyte drives with out issue.
I would get the largest you can afford. Keep in mind when you install a new drive, the ps3 will reserve about 10% of the drive so you will be unable to use that portion.
really? and its running fine, when did you get it put in and what make would you recommend?
750Gb is the largest you can use without modifying anything, up to 1tb is possible by cutting or just removing the metal tray it sits in.
mine is a western digital 500gb 5400rpm (WE5000BEVT) and it works fine.

The PS3 doesn't actually have a size limit (afaik) for hard drives, as long as it's a 2.5in SATA drive you're golden, HOWEVER the 1TB drives are all 2.6in or something to that effect. They will only fit without the HD caddy, but they will work.
I however chose to go with a 500GB ($53 on amazon) as the price ratio for anything higher was high.
yeah thanx every one i will get a 500gb one as i have a 1.5tb external. and by the way what does enhanced mean because it says that next to the one i'm looking at.. like this (enhanced) ?? any clues.
you can find better prices @ newegg or ncix for sure.
