Default Upgrading your PS3 Hard Drive

As you know, we're about to enter a massive game release period for the ps3 what with Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, Grand Theft Auto, and Metal Gear.

Several of us have the 40gb PS3 hard drives -- and you can bet that many of the upcoming games are going to have partial installs of 5gb or so. I expect this to become more of a norm. With a 40gb, that only gets you 7-8 games.

Anyway, I was thinking that now might be a good time to update ye olde harddrive to something quite a bit larger -- before I have a ton of saved game data on the current one. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Also, Samsung has supposedly released their 500gb Spinpoint M6 drives, but I can't find them for sale anywhere yet.

What are you guys using/suggesting/steering clear of?

I don't think the M6 is for sale yet. I haven't had any issues with my Toshiba 200GB.

I haven't heard of any problems with off the shelf drives yet, so you should be good with any 2.5" sata.
