I swapped out my 320gb for a 60gb OCZ vertex ssd, and put the 320 in an external chassis. I understand that for the average person, the price difference might be worth it, but anyone who can use a screwdriver can probably put in their own 250 for cheaper (if they use the same $100 price difference as they have in the past for the varying HDD skus)

My poor old PS3 is still chugging along with a 20GB drive lol I do not really need more since I keep my music and movies on other storage, I usually stream my media over my network... (I can cram a lot more TB's in my PC then a game console. Now if I could just figure out this FreeNAS thing then I would not have to stream off my main PC.
I upgraded from 60 GB 5400 rpm to 160GB 7200 rpm. It's fine to go from 5400 to 7200 but there isn't any noticeable difference. I didn't do any benchmarks though - just everyday use gives no impression of a performance gain.
I bought a 120gb slim on the 1st of october ans gamestation had the 250gb version on sale then, it was an extra £30 tho and I didnt wanna spend that much extra just for even more space that I would never use lol
