plus why is it , whenever you put a HD into either a pc , ps3 or whatever , it never ends up being the same amount as stated , for instance if you put in a 500GB HD itll actaully be around 470GB or something

 

always wondered that

The confusion over hard drive sizes come from the manufacturers saying one thing and the operating system saying another. Although most manufacturers of hard disks and define 1 gigabyte as 1,000,000,000 bytes, the computer operating systems usually calculate a gigabyte by dividing the bytes (whether it is disk capacity, file size, or system RAM) by 1,073,741,824.

 

This distinction is a cause of confusion, especially for people from a non-technical background, as a hard disk with a manufacturer rated capacity of 500 gigabytes may have its capacity reported by the operating system as only 465 GB, depending on the type of report. So although the HDD is  advertised as having 500 GB HD its only 465 GB.

thats because the software counts in binary and the number on the label is in decimal number system.

the 30 GB that is already used is the programming and installation programming that is built into the hard drive and the larger the hard drive the more programming it needs.

I think so far you can only get a 500gb drive that will fit. Western Digital are my favoured make, I think you can get a deal on these, I remember 320gbs being £40

Sorry mate, it wont fit.  The drive is 12.5mm high, the compatible drive for a PS3 has to be 9.5mm high.  Biggest you can get at the moment that will fit is 500GB.

Actually, the biggest one you can get at this point (July 2010), is a 750GB.. it is 9.5mm high. Check out this ebay item number 170509777402 hopefully it will still be active when/if you read this post.. It may not be much longer till the 1TB 9.5mm comes out... i don't have any news on that tho...

Dude thank you, i have been looking at upgrading my ps3 (its the old fat 60gig style one) and i ideally wanted a 1tb, but i'll settle for 750 gig, so this has helped me out.

 

This seems to be the only site i can find that sell them, and at a reasonable price too
