Hard disk upgrade; a reminder...

It seems like now is a good time to remind everyone just how easy it is to upgrade your PS3 hard drive, since I'm now the proud owner of a 250Gb PS3 rather than the 60Gb I started with.

The operation, described beautifully by the guys at VideoJug below, is as easy as you'd expect and despite a stubborn screw that required a pair of pliers, took me all of 7 minutes to complete.

I chose to back up everything to a USB external drive in advance and then restore afterwards. The operation therefore required 90 minutes of backup beforehand, and 90 minutes of restore afterwards. Don't forget to backup all your data before upgrading or you'll lose everything.

Check out the video below to see just how easy it is. Thanks again to Sony for making this a customer installable item...
