If you mean that one it will not fit,it is 12mm thick.

Basically you need a 2.5" SATA that is 9mm thick and i believe the biggest you can get at the moment is 500gb.

Cyberman,

the PS3 can only take a 9mm thick disk internally - the one you mention is 12mm thick. At the moment there are no cost effective 9mm 1TB disks available, although this will change early next year.

People have fitted 12mm disks internally, but this needs serious modifications to this disk caddy, which will invalidate your warranty.

At present, the largest capacity that is labelled PS3 compatible is 500GB.

 

I hope this helps
