Default solid state drive

Have anyone tried installing a SSD in a playstation 3 ? XD
Will it improve the load time of games ?

If you have the money do it. The write speeds (intalling games and such) are a little faster not noticable. But read times (loading games and such) are significantly faster

It would be nice to own one in my playstation 3. But I don't think its worth it really... A P3 is around 400$ and the drive is what ? over 400 ? lol

60GB SSD for little over 100$ ? I wonder if its reliable, I have yet seen any 60GB SSD under 300$ even on tigerdirect.ca

They probably aren't doing a lot of business. A lot of companies are cutting prices to stay alive.

That's a huge cut then, trying to find some reviews on this model and see if its worth investing in it.

Seriously, its not worth the extra money, it will only speed up load times if its loading from HDD not from the disk, but like zkilla said, it will speed up install times and saves.
