  1. Yes. SSDs are the same size physically. Just get one with more GB and speed. Make sure its a 7mm so it'll fit tight mounts.

  2. hi i7Baby,

    thanks for reply

    what is 7mm ?
  3. The thickness. You can see in the link that it's 7mm (well 6,8 anyway). Latop drives are either 7 or 9mm thick by 2.5in wide.

    So you mean HDD of below specification will not be used in Super Slim becoz its thickness is 9mm

    Capacity 160 GB
    Height 9.5 mm
    Width 70 mm
    Interface ATA-7 / SATA 1.0a
    Transfer Rate Synchronous (maximum) 100 MB/s (Drive Capability)
    Seek Time
    (typical reads, including
    settling)
    Single Track 3 ms
    Average 13ms
    Maximum 24 ms

    Logical Blocks 312,581,808

    right?
  6. Depend whether the laptop will take 9.5mm. Then can get either 9 (9.5) or 7 (6.8). A 7 will fit both

    I think there is some confusion here,
    I want to upgrade PS3 super slim HDD of below specification

    160-GB 5400 rpm SATA Drive Weight 101 g
    Capacity 160 GB
    Height 9.5 mm
    Width 70 mm
    Interface ATA-7 / SATA 1.0a
    Transfer Rate Synchronous (maximum) 100 MB/s (Drive Capability)
    Seek Time
    (typical reads, including
    settling)
    Single Track 3 ms
    Average 13ms
    Maximum 24 ms
    Rotational Speed 5400 rpm
    Logical Blocks 312,581,808
    Operating Temperature 5° to 60° C [case temp]
    Features ATA Security

    this HDD will work in PS3 supr slim or not?
  8. You have to check what is already in there. If its 9.5mm then you'll be OK.
