Today as I was looking through the Platform Nation Amazon Store I found a 2.5 inch 320 gig hard drive for just $63.95 NEW! Now if you are wondering why this is at all relevant I will tell you. It is a perfect hdd for you to put in your PS3 to add some storage space. I wish I had found this deal a week ago because I upgraded my PS3 hdd and ended up paying $100 at Staples.

WD’s exclusive WhisperDrive combines state-of-the-art seeking algorithms to yield one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market. These algorithms also optimize the way a drive seeks for data, which significantly improves power consumption. So now silence (and longer battery life) is golden.WD’s ShockGuard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks. WD’s SecurePark parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up, spin down, and when the drive is off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface resulting in improved long-term reliability due to less head wear, and improved non-operational shock tolerance.
You can find this hdd at the P*N Amazon Store. Just search for “2.5 hdd” under electronics.
~Oh, and as a side note if you strip the little blue screw when replacing your PS3 hdd a pair of needle nose pliers work great to get it out.
