ifixit did a tear down - and on that one it was a Toshiba MK1255GSX (HDD2H26). I guess you're not gonna know for sure until you take a peek inside.

If you're interested in how these come apart the link to ifixit is below;

I guess I just order one and see what´s inside the ps3 after.
It´s not like they put no name ones in anyway

Oh right, madness. I just assumed that as my 40gb one was Hitachi then all 40gb ones would be. Strange but i whipped it out and got a 320gb WD the same as yourself.
