I was thinking about getting the PS+ deal for my son and read that you really want a larger HD than stock (certain his is 60gb) since you'll be downloading the free games they offer. I would prefer not to install a new internal drive, primarily out of laziness and not wanting to transfer files, etc. Anything I should know about an external HD? I did a little reading and it sounded as though 5400 vs 7200 wasn't a big deal -- maybe a 10% boost at best and closer to 5% on average. Was considering this drive mainly 'cause it's cheap on sale for $50.
That said, I dunno crap about PS3 drives. I mean, I know plenty enough about PC drives and I know they're the same animal but I've never messed with the Ps3 aside from plugging it in and telling the kid to go to town.
