    its so easy to swap out the internal drive in your ps3, I highly recommend it. back up your current drive, install the new drive and do the restore, works fantastic. I just recently replaced my 80G with a 320G drive.

    I too have an original PS3 80gb. Can anyone advise me with what hard drive to install? I am at a loss as to what brand etc. to use.

    Thank you in advance.

    Thank you very much. All we could find was inconsistent opinions.
