  1. We've already seen the industry's first 2.5-inch 1TB consumer hard drive courtesy of Western Digital, but Seagate has announced what it claims to be the first enterprise-grade solution. The company today introduced its 1TB 2.5-inch Constellation.2 drive, which is designed for server applications in environments that range from small and medium businesses to large enterprise data centers.

    It should but why would you need 1TB? So you can play ur JB games..LOL. I have a 750GB Western Digital after it has been formatted, It left me with 620gb exact. Thats 130GB i'm missing not including around 40GB for the PS3 OS..etc. Just pickup yourself a nice 750GB and your good to go. Happy gaming...:)

    I have a 500gb at the moment. I keep B-ray movies on it for entertainment, so I think a 1tb would be good, At this point, I have to delete many movies to make room for more.
  5. No, this drive will not fit in a PS3, the PS3 will only allow for the installation of 9.5mm tall HDD. As stated in the article above this particular drive is 14.8mm. Neither this nor any 12.5mm drives fit in a PS3.

    "Being made for servers and all, we should note that the drives pack four 250GB platters and measure 14.8mm thick, which means they probably won't fit in your mobile computer. Notebook drives are typically 9.5mm tall or 12.5mm for high capacity three-platter models." - From Article Above.
