Sony PlayStation 3 Replacement Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Mounting Bracket for Super-Slim PS3 £7.99 Delivered/Click and Collect from HMV

SparkSpark

It's a bit shocking that Sony don't include this in the box with the 12GB models to be honest but if you need one then HMV have them back in stock and priced £2 cheaper than Amazon.

    ...and if you are planning on installing a 1TB drive...

    [ http://www.hotukdeals.com/misc/battlefield-bad-company-2-killzone-624991?p=16136800 ]

    A few others & I had been trying to install 1TB (Samsung) hard drives into our 12GB Flash Memory Super Slim PS3 consoles recently.

    Initially we all had issues, but I happened upon a solution, documented here:

    [ http://www.avforums.com/forums/18041905-post25.html ]
    and
    [ http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3-Technical-Help/Error-at-70-of-rebuild-process-when-adding-1tb-hdd-to-12gb-super/td-p/17599604 ]

    Note that in the last link, the issue was reported with a Hitachi 1TB drive as well.

    I have a feeling that these things are going to become like rocking horse manure in the new year.

    Quite easy to make a temp solution; I used a loop of thin string around the drive (to make it easy to pull back out) and some wedges of folded card on all four sides. Worked a treat whilst I was waiting for my enclosure to arrive from HMV. :)

    I've heard that some people have been coming up with some interesting homebrew alternatives. :)

    I think it's also possible to modify one of the old HDD brackets to fit into the super-slim if you have a spare one.

    For the sake of £7.99 and doing it properly, I don't see the point of doing a permanent bodge job. It was only because my PS3 arrived and the caddy hadn't yet, that did a temporary fix.

    I think it was because these things have been hard to find at a decent price since the super-slim came out and it's only now that stocks are being updated.

    I think it is a bit woeful on Sony's behalf not to include this though. Unless you're only buying the console for the occasional party game of Singstar or some similar rubbish then 12GB isn't much good to anyone.

    1TB "FTW"

    Not too sure about that tbh. When I had a 640GB drive in my PS3 it went really slow. I think you'd have to be careful over the 1TB drive that you choose.

    most probably no. my old 40gb fat ps3 mounted the hdd side ways into the console. Thus it cant be used in a slim which mounts head on
