hi, so i recently got the 80gb version

1) what is the maximum size HD i can put into it? no max or i've read theres a max size....

2) if theres NO max, wud a 500gb 7200rpm 2.5notebook hd work as well a a 5400rpm? theres a lot of questions re: how the ps3 can only go as fast as 5400rpm...ie . fan and hardware issues/limitations


i don't want to waste money for extra speed of the 7200 if i don't have to

3) u can only dload demos from turning on the PS3 and dloading it to the internal PS3 HD?

say i wanted to use my puters FIREFOX to login and dload the demos to my puters HD? possible or NOT?


4) u can't play demos/games on an external HD?

It would work fine. But I don't see the point of going faster, considering it doesn't help much with anything (does not help installation speeds at all, don't let people tell you differently)

don't

What do you mean? Like downloading demos on the PSN store? Yes.

Downloading demos and putting them onto the hard drives? Don't think you can.

No
The only time an external hard drive is supported (other then a USB key obviously) is when you're backing stuff up.

^ thanx for the info guys... i've been dloading ALOT of demo games off the psn store but wow is it slow dloading....its got hella slow servers...on xbox live the dloads r very much faster

im looking at a hitachi 320gb 7200 drive for around 105$cdn (after 20usd rebate)
i can prolly get a cheaper 320gb 5400rpm WD or Seagate for 90bux ....

been reading debates over the speeds of the HDs, and i do think 7200 installs a bit faster but won't b any much hotter
