I believe it was covered in the manual, although I'm not sure about the newer model's manuals. It's fairly simple, on fat PS3's, I've never done it on the slims or superslims but I assume it's about the same. By removing a cover on the bottom of the system and removing a single blue screw that allows the HDD to come out in a cradle.

My 80 gig (not launch but sortly there after 2008)  model runs like a champ.  Put in a 1/2 TB hard drive 2 years ago.  Mine has probally been on for an average of 40 hours a week for the past 3 years - I fall asleep to netflix every night, play music off of it while I study ect.  I don't smoke in the room that it is in, and keep it vertical to keep it from heating up, and use canned air to clean the vent every 6 months or so.

Also my fat PS2 still works like a charm, but has not seen that much action in the last 5 years.  I am however on my 2nd PSP 3000.  I would take it to school with me and play between classes, the first one gave me about 1500 hours, I did have to buy a new battery for it but - meh.  I did get a defective Vita when I first got it, but got it replaced 2 days later from the store and had no problems with it since.

 

I do seem to take care of my electronics though, I am rocking a 9 year old Sharp Aquos tv that is only 1080i, but it wont die (no dead pixels ect)

I was not as fortunate as most of you.

I got my 60GB 3 months after launch. Several months later it died. Sony replaced it.

Months later, that one got YLOD. Sony replaced it.

A year later, that one got YLOD too. Sony offered me a 120GB Slim for $99 plus my 60GB fatboy, in exchange. I accepted.

My Slim has been going strong since.

 

My previous 3 were all kept clean and in well ventilated areas. They just didn't want to live anymore.

But, my original PS1 and PS2 still work like a charm.

Sadly, my original 60 GB backwards compatible PS3 broke last May. That was the best PS3 out there. I miss it.  Smiley Sad

 

I am also curious to know who still has their original PS3's.

I had to send my launch system in once, although I am not surprised seeing as how I beat like 50 games on it a year I beat the heck out of that system. In fact I am pretty impressed at how resilient these systems are cannot wait for the PS4.

Hell ya I was wonder is there were other people out there that still had their PS3's. I've still have my original 2006 60GB PS3. Had to get it fixed twice possible a third soon, that and I upgraded to a 500GB HD about two years ago. But hell it'll have to burst into flames for me to get rid of it.

My 80 gig ran smooth with no problems since the day I bought it. I just sold it a couple weeks ago.
