    What make/model hdd is in a slim PS3?

    I haven´t ordered our upgrade yet so I wanted to know
    what kind of drive is in the slim so I can see how much they go for on ebay.
    I know I could just have a look but I don´t wanna go near those screws
    unless it´s to change the hdd :-)

    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;

    Thanks

    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.
