    [Answered] Western Digital 750GB 5400 Warning

    Sponsored Links
    Be warned when upgrading your HDD, I purchased a Western Digital 750GB 5400 Scorpio Blue. This HDD took twice as long to install game data. I had to switch to a 7200RPM Segate 500GB. Top get the same performance as the stock hitachi. Just remember that since our games are now on the HDD, a higher RPM will help in this case. The 7200RPM is a little faster than the stock HDD.

    It can't be so much faster, because if you see the results of using a SSD (which is extremely more faster on PC) the PS3 can't handle it with that speed, because the needle (?) which read the data is not optimized for that speed.

    Those tests were done prior to jailbreak. Now with the disc on the HDD, it does appear to be a little bit faster. Im not saying its going to be hugely different however, it will offset for the fact that the source and destination are the same hard drive. The 7200RPM brings it closer to stock speeds except appears a little faster on installing.

    SSD don't use needle, its uses Solid State Drive, which mean it uses non moving parts, and are base on flash memory. a 7200rpm 2.5" harddrive will make alot of heat, compare to 5200 or 5400. when you buy a harddrive, always check the cache, and write delay.

    Of course we know the difference between HDD and SSD. But in fact, it isn't a really improvement to an HDD with 5400rpm.

    Like to see such statistic with an 5400rpm and 7200rpm.
