Actually, that Toshiba drive is like the previous 1TB 2.5" drives that have been out for a while. That is, 12.5mm tall.  Too tall for the PS3 to fit without modifcation.

  Exactly, this drive is 12.5mm tall instead of the 9.5mm required to fit ps3 without modifying.  And was not just released, has been out since last year lol. ^_^

7200 can cause the ps3 to overheat.

5200RPM is stock, a 7200 might cause more heat causing YOLD.

Why not use super fast, super chill SSD and combine it with a external HD?

It's a myth that a 7200 rpm drive may cause enough heat for YLOD. If you look at the manufacturer specs, you'll see that 7200 rpm drives consume the same amount power as 5400 rpm drives. This means they produce the same amount of heat.

This is not true - 7200 will not cause any heating problems. And SSD will give no benefits at all!! PS3 has SATA1 that is to slow to profit from SSD performance, plus PS3 hardware is in generally to slow

I had also for some months SSD in my ps3 - really it makes no sense.

I imagine SSD would provide more noticeable performance with games that rely heavily on cached data on the hard drive like Gran Turismo 5 and downloadable titles. If you have solely disc-based titles, then you will see minimal benefit from a SSD.
