Sony PS3 HDD upgrade
Well, the Sony PlayStation 3 only comes in 40GB hard drive now. But if you plan to use it for media centre and many other things, 40GB is pretty much not enough. After asking for opinions, I decided to get a 200GB (7200rpm) instead of 5400rpm (which is included).
Getting a 2.5-inch internal HDD is not difficult, it is just a matter to decide which one to get. There are a number of reports on upgrading PlayStation 3's HDD, since Sony designed for user to upgrade the internal HDD themselves. (Upgrading HDD won't void warranty.)
Here's the photo of new 2.5-inch HDD (SATA) for PS3.
Opening up the plastic cover of HDD tray is easy, but to unscrew the blue screw would require a good screw driver. (It was very tight.) Also to remove the four screws which hold the original HDD is a bit challenge. They are very very tight, and the screw head can get damaged easily. Using an electrical screwdriver is highly recommended. (I ended up getting a cheap electrical screwdriver/drill from Disk Smith Electronics.)
(to Don: Antony is poor.)
