So I got the Kingston SSDNow V100 SV100S2/128GZ 2.5" 128GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive installed into my PS3 and there is a substantial gain in load times. About 40-55 seconds from pressing the GT5 button until the game is ready to play. Loading the tracks and cars onto the hard drive has resulted in track loading times of 15-20 seconds. Loading the garage is almost instant, changing active car takes less than a second. It's blistering fast and makes the game that much more enjoyable. All for $179 after rebate at Newegg. If you have the spare change it's definitely worth the money.
