nice share, when you said `and put in today` did you mean took it out of its plastic housing and installed internally to you ps3, if so nice share indeed
Yes that's what I mean.
An update - The touro 1TB drive works perfectly (no spindown/power saving crap)...
However I got a faulty one and it started rattling, new one on the way...
(Works fine though, it's the only drive I'd recommend above 500GB 2.5inch to be mounted internally).
It's not as fast as the old drive, of course, because it's only 2.5inch so stuff does take noticeably longer to load....but it's not like there's any other option, so I'm happy
I got it from Amazon.co.uk at that price but it's since gone up in price, however ebuyer.co.uk are doing it for £54.99, which is still a very good price for a 1TB 2.5 inch drive.
You can then use the enclosure for another 2.5inch drive, and it's a USB3.0 enclosure, so all said and done...can't really complain.

I made a thread on this, and nobody offered me any help except sarcastic twatty remarks, have a look.
I tested ALL 4.xx CFW firmware, it all exhibits the same problem, I downgraded and upgraded countless times, all with same results, format drive in computer/fix filesystem in recovery/rebuild database/so on and so on
It's got nothing to do with the drive being mounted externally and all todo with the fact it's a 3.5 inch drive...god knows what though. (I verified this by using my SATA cables to mount the 2.5 inch drive externally)
