This must have been asked to death here but please, help me out. I want to buy an HDD (500-750gb) to put in my 12gb Super Slim PS3 but everytime I seem to have found what I'm looking for, there's always someone who will say something in the comments that tells me it's a no-no.
Like this one:
On amazon.com, a bunch of people are saying it's good for a PS3 Slim but they don't mention the PS3 Super Slim 12gb model. And then someone posts this:
"Okay, I bought this a couple days ago for my PS3. Let me start off by saying: the hard drive *does* work, and *is* compatible, but just isn't made for the PS3. It has a power save feature that causes the XMB menu, browser, and some games to stutter/freeze up. So basically, every 4-8 seconds the hard drive 'goes to sleep' to save power, and pressing a button after this causes the system to stutter."
There's also this one:
But now, I've read a couple of times that 7200rpm HDD's aren't advised for PS3's.
As you can tell, I'm not really tech savvy. So in a nutshell, what's the best HDD I can buy for an 12gb PS3?
