I've done it before. It's nothing special. Accepts standard laptop hard drives. Amusingly the stock HDD my PS3 came with had a sticker on it that said "Not for laptop use" suggesting it was very low spec.

You may lose save data that's on it though so don't invest saves on it if you do intend to upgrade it.


Yah, thing I saw said that means that drive doesn't park its heads when idling so any movement or jarring, bumping, etc., could scratch the platters.

I had a wee look and found some instructions on the PS website. Also I tend to keep saves on USB's. So looks like al grab the 12gb one and change it

Go for the PS3 12GB if it's one of those fat models. If the console came, originally, with 80GB or less then it can play PS2 titles which is, you know, a big plus.

If the PS3 12GB is not a Super Slim and its model number is below CECH- 21XXB, you could downgrade it and then JB it. Aftwards, upgrade its hard drive from a trusted store like Newegg.

If that's the case, then, stil, buy the PS3 12GB one and just upgrade its HDD. You'll save a couple of euros doing so. If your wondering about hardware difference, then it's small. The newer models consume less wats and cool better than the fat models. Other than that, same ... maybe.
