If you don't get free delivery then this Samsung 640GB drive is a bit cheaper:

AVForums criteria isn't that hard to get and good thing about free delivery through scan is you get it next day delivery. Not bad - I think.

Does anyone know how this performs with the iplayer on the PS3? Any stutter as found with some drives?

Thanks.

As far as i know it should be fine as the stuttering issue is on Western Digital models of hard drive.

Thanks rob, I ordered it anyway, if any problems I'd put it in my laptop instead, but good to know the iplayer stutter is confined to the Western Digital drives.

Thanks again

Heat added by the way! Thanks to OP.

No problem. I would order it myself as i would like to store a lot of films and programmes onto my PS3 but i just dont have the money right now.

Now down to £49.34 on Today Only.

Wonder if this will work in the xtreamer media player ? hmm

I got the one from ccl computers
640GB Samsung Spinpoint M7 2.5" Hard Disk Drive - HM641JI
just added a 49p filler to get the over £50 free delivery, £50.48 delivered.
Just a heads up, they are 2 slightly different hard drives.
CCLONLINE - HM641JI - Bytes per Sector = 512
SCAN - HM641JI/Z4 - Bytes per Sector = 4kb
512 is the current standard, while 4kb is the forthcoming standard.
At the moment 4kb sector will cause compatablility issues for XP users and some older LINUX.
XP run upto 10% slower instead of faster linky.
I chose the 512 one for my wind u100, and the 4kb futureproof one for the windows 7 laptop.
I believe both work will work on the PS3
cheerios
