5OOGB drive for my PS3? - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Thread Starter 
Thanks to all posters.... reps to all of you. I did go with a 500GB WD 5400 HDD and it works awesome. I had a 7200 drive in my old PS3 and I cant say I notice any difference at all. Matter of fact this one seems pretty darn fast!

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.

Your ignorance amuses me.

Glad to help, and I'm pretty sure they were too.
