I was told that it doesnt matter is you have a 7200 or 5400. The PS3 is limited to the 5400 no matter what and it would reduce heat as well. True?

The fact that I haven't seen anyone else mention this appalls me almost.

THE PS3 DOES NOT BENEFIT FROM A 7200RPM HARD-DRIVE! If anything a 7200rpm drive is bad as it produces more heat and uses more electricity.

SSDs only produce less heat, and use electricity at the cost of more $/GB. It is not noticeable faster...

If the PS3 were to actually benefit from faster HDDs wouldn't Sony have shipped them with them? Or atleast offer it later down the road? Seriously?

I've used the stock HDD and my current HDD and their is absolutely no difference. My friend has as older SSD he scrapped from a netbook and that too doesn't perform any faster. And if it does it isn't measurable next to one another playing Resident Evil 5(OF ALL GAMES!)...

Ever saw the Gamestop deal that had a 500GB 7200RPM WD in it? Seriously, do you research.

I would get a Caviar Black from Newegg.
it not recommended to use that speed. Just a 5400rpm is fine

whats you point. Smart people would know that a 5400rpm is fine and a 7200rpm is no benefit at all.

Maybe I was too harsh.There are very few games that benefit from it but to me they shouldn't even be worth mentioning as they are far in-between and offer little to no noticeable performance increase.

Regardless, anything above a 5400 RPM drive is a waste for the cost. 0.02 seconds isn't worth 1/2 as much data space.

small benefit if any...
heat? minimal difference, get over this misconception
(oh no, hdd's are like gpu's now... too hot, too much power lol)
hdd's are cheap enough as they are (or used to be until the flooding)
WD's laptop 7200rpm version uses nearly the same power consumption as their 5400rpm version
all these complaints are really trivial
this is a PS3 not a laptop where heat and power may matter
the cost difference is small (imo)
been using a 7200rpm (tried a seagate, now WD) for almost like forever now

measurable
justified? thats up too u...

Sorry to revive an older thread but this is like Walmart/Costco/etc# selling low-end AMD dual-core systems with 8gb of RAM.

Just because it's there doesn't mean it's actually helping much. Just stuff the buyer thinks is helpful and in the end that's all that matters to the retailer.

Just like 8gb of ram would only help in programs that are poorly coded a 7200rpm drive will only help games that are poorly coded (usually).

The better games are much more optimized and work within the specific criteria and while making the best of what they have they neglect things the common user doesn't have.

In short:
Optimized games, boot-ups, and other core system functions: <5%
Poorly coded games, game installs, etc#: 5-25%
In game (limited by BD-drive more-so): subjective and very rarely proven to be truly noticeable

My opinion still stands... Get a larger 5400rpm drive and get quadruple the space for 1/4 the price and give yourself that split second to dig one more nail into your left butt-cheek.

I'm probably arguing all the wrong points and being incredibly contradictory but if it weren't for google and my laziness this would be a very convincing argument.

This entire post means nothing to me, and I don't take responsibility for any factual errors.

i would recommend going with a 5400rpm HDD, i recently bought a ps3 slim 160gb on my way home i purchased a 7200 500gb hdd from a tigerdirect store. Got home installed the new drive and installed the update onto it, one of the games i play gave me issues with the drive in this case it was Dark Souls. As i was playing the game it would freeze up and become unoperational and so would the PS3 i couldnt even exit the game by using the PS button menu ... i researched around and decided to go back the next day to tigerdirect and purchased the same drive but the 5400rpm version ..

Installed the new drive installed the firmware update for the ps3 and then i was able to play the game without any freezes .. not sure if any other games might do the same but i do know that this game was the main issue for me. Just go with a 5400 and be on the safe side.
