Gonna purchase new HDD for PS3 I will be getting soon, but need to know if its SATA-150 interface or ATA-150 interface.
I suspect SATA-150 just need to confirm, cheers everyone

It's SATA.

Personally at the prices currently I'd use an external. Just yesterday I picked up a 160GB 3.5" SATA for £35 whereas a 160GB 2.5" drive would run to double that.

yep sata, 5 screws to get at it, then insert new drive, replace 5 screws, cover up HDD, turn on PS3, it may ask to format HDD, then your away!

cheers mate sounds pretty straight forward then, im ordering 160gb tomorrow, one thing does the formatting by the PS3 take a while considering the size of the drive?

no, there would be no data on it, its only formatting it to make sure its FAT32, and if it already is, then its plug and play!

I'm gonna wait for my 12 month warranty to end, before I get adventurous with my PS3.
