The ps3 does not support hdd's above 720gb...so i would not go for 1tb let alone 2tb....i suggest you for the samsung 720 gig 2.5 inch sata hdd with 5400rpm...as ps3 is programmed to run at 5400rpm...even if you buy a 7200rpm it will make not difference!
SEAGATE IS NOT RECOMMENDED BY ME..and many others as they die very early on.
Actually the ps3 DOES support higher than 720GB, it however doesn't fit hdds thicker than 9.5 mm which the largest capacity in 9.5mm is currently 750GB hdds. There are many reports of people running a sata cord from the inside of the ps3 to an external 1TB hdd successfully. There are even reports of people getting 2TB drives working this way but they are vague as to how they did it.

Oh and he was asking about an external and not an internal, hence the title of the thread.
