Best 2.5" SATA Laptop Hard Drive

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am considering upgrading my PS3 hard drive. The drive that comes with the system stock is a seagate momentus 5400.2 series. I have been considering getting a 7200.1 drive but I am unsure if it would create more heat or require more power than the 5400's. I was wondering what drive you guys would think is better as a replacement. There is also a 160GB hitachi drive but I am unsure as to what Perpendicular drives are and if they would work with the system.

Here are some of the drives I am considering.

I believe this is the exact 60gb drive that comes with the PS3. (momentus 5400.2)

160GB Seagate Momentus 5400.3:

(momentus 5400.3)

100GB Seagate Momentus 7200.1:

Hitachi 7K100 Travelstar 100GB 7200rpm:

Hitachi 5k160 Travelstar 160GB 5400rpm:

I am not 100% sure which drive I should get. I am a little concerned about the power usage for 7200's. I they barely use more power than 5400's, but would it hurt the PS3?

Seagate all the way. Fast and reliable. If its SATA specifications, it shouldn't matter if its 5400rpm or 7200rpm.

Ya I am considering Seagate as my first choice brand in this. However I am also interested in the PMR HDD (perpendicular drive). I have heard they are more reliable, use less power, and are faster than conventional of same spindle speed.
