I've been upgrading my MacBook Pro recently as it's getting on a bit (bought in Nov 2009). Had been a bit nervous about fiddling around with the hardware in it but upgraded the RAM recently and that was easy, so decided to have a go a the hard drive too. Again, really easy. This hard drive works absolutely perfectly, my MBP was already faster from the RAM upgrade but unexpectedly the hard drive upgrade made it run faster still. Applications like iPhoto now just pop up almost instantly and retrieve photos really quickly.

Now have loads of space and a faster laptop! Seems to slightly drain on the battery more than before as another poster mentioned, but similarly I've found that's true for doing stuff like sorting photos and web browsing but actually watching video seems to be the same if not slower. So a small trade up but totally one worth taking in my opinion.

I brought this as a replacement HDD for my PS3. Delivery was prompt and it has worked perfectly since installing. I can now install all my GT5 tracks and lots of music and videos. Its brilliant. Doesn't appear noisy (or at least no noiser than the old one) Very happy.

I bought this hard drive to upgrade my PS3's old upgrade that was 250GB after searching around on quite a few websites I found this and decided to bite the bullet because I know that some PS3's dont seem to get along with some drives from Westerns Digital. I received it in around 3-4 days I cant remember on Super Saver delivery which was good time to be honest only gripe I didnt like was the lousy packaging it came in a sleeve type cardboard box that usually DVD/Games are sent in with no bubble wrap at all.

NOW THE FOLLOWING IS WHAT I HAD TO DO TO GET IT TO FORMAT AND WORK FOR MY SLIMLINE PS3

You'll need a USB data stick/Pen drive with 200mb or more and it to be formatted doesn't matter what file format FAT32 or NTFS once its formatted you need to then go into the drive via your PC/Laptop and create one folder in CAP letters called PS3, then go into that folder and create another folder again in CAPS called UPDATE. You need to search through Google or whatever and find PS3 UPDATE and download the latest firmware from the official UK site. Unfortunately I cannot give you the address as Amazon forbid it so I can only give you what you need to search for when you have found the update site and downloaded the file called PS3UPDAT.PUP copy it to the USB stick inside the folder UPDATE this is in case the PS3 doesn't recognize the hard drive at first and you need to the firmware data to format the drive its a little crazy but its what it asked me to do and how Sony have created the software.

AT THIS POINT MAKE SURE YOU HAVE BACKED UP ALL YOUR GAME SAVES AS THEY ARE ON THE OLD DRIVE YOU CAN COPY MOST IF NOT ALL YOUR GAME SAVES TO A USB STICK YOU CAN EVEN COPY THEM TO THE ONE YOUR USING OR IF YOU HAVE PS+ COPY THEM ALL TO THAT IT EVEN COPIES PROTECTED GAMES SAVES.

Overwhelmingly impressed I couldn't believe at this value my item arrived the following morning.
This item represents excellent value for money, the hard drive has worked faultlessly since installation.
I would have no qualms what so ever recommending the product and especially the company who supplied it.

I bought this product as my PS3 had run out of space and I am impressed with it so far.
The hard drive came first thing this morning with no damage to the box or the HDD, the HDD was secured correctly and couldn't move around at all.
With this being my first purchase from Amazon I'm glad I decided to join this service.
Thank you Western Digital & Amazon
