Not sure where I should post this, but since it's to do with the PS3 I thought it'd fit here best.
I'm looking into buying a new 500GB HDD for my PS3, since I've still got the original 60GB and to be honest, I find myself having to uninstall games to fit more on, when, for around £50 I can have a 500GB HDD and not need to do any of this. Currently I'm looking at this;
Now, I'm good with components, be it RAM, Motherboards, GFX Cards etc. but when it comes to HDD I'm not the greatesr obviously bigger is better, however, apparently a 7200RPM HDD isn't as effective in a PS3 as a 5400RPM, since it doesn't increase load times by too much, and causes more heat, which I'd like to avoid, thus getting a 5400RPM, and I'm not sure what the difference is between SATA an SATAII, but whatever.
I'm also looking into getting a 500GB Portable External HDD, I'd go for a stationary desktop one, but I think this would be easier to transfer back and forth between multiple PS3's and computers etc. I'm going to be using it to back up my PS3 saves etc. since in September my PS3 died and I lost 3 years worth of savedata etc. and have recently had a powercut that caused my Gran Turismo 5 savedata to corrupt and I've had to start again, lol. Here's the one I'm looking at;
Now I'd like to know, are these two good choices of equipment, or would you recommend something else? Preferably something from eBuyer if you see anything that might be better, although I AM trying to stick to around £50 for each of them maximum, but if it really will make a big difference, I'll go up more.
