    Largest PS3 hdd that can run on 3.55 FW help?

    I want to update my original hdd and want to go big. Would a 1TB work?

    I saw one in use on youtube but I wasn't sure on the firmware level that was being used.

    I heard that the 1TB one can be a bit big for slim ps3s and that the ones around 700gb would fit a bit easier.

    1TB eco friendlies seem to give trouble, also if it's not 9.5mm you'll have to leave the drive cage out

    Other option is simply to attach the 3.5" SATA drive externally using the satta lead from inside of the cage space and external power supply, works like a treat - as far as I was able to test any available size works.

    Slim PS3 can fit 12mm drives while Fat ones only 9mm thick drives.

    PS3 can use 1TB Internal HDD while 2TB can be recognized through USB.
