5.0 out of 5 stars Great hard drive, a few issues with drivers 16 Mar 2011
By Yoeman
Verified Purchase
I bought this to upgrade my laptop from 500gb to 750gb. I 'cloned' the old drive (using Acronis), swapped them over, and the system booted. However I was unable to use Microsoft Messenger, and Outlook mail search was not working. Also the PC seemed slow. After much searching, I discovered that if you use a drive greater than 700mb (this one is), then (if your pc uses an intel chipset) you need to install Intel 'Rapid Storage Technology' application/drivers to avoid problems. Once I had done this everything seems to work just fine.

My old drive was a 7200rpm (not available yet in 750gb) but I have not noticed much performance loss and the drive is very quiet.

I requested standard delivery (3 - 5 days) but Bspokeshop got it to me by the next working day. Excellent service.

I installed this 750Gb WD Blue as a replacement HD in an early 2008 model MacBook Pro (4,1). Formatted fine using GUID scheme, though I had to select this manually as it wasn't the default for some reason. Restored OS X partition from a Time Machine backup. OS X itself is happy with the Advanced Format (AF) drive, but I initially had several bizarre problems trying to use rEFIt, the multi-boot manager, as I split the drive into two (or more) partitions for running Kubuntu Linux as well. It appeared ok to start with, but then kept booting straight into OS X. Reinstalling rEFIt didn't work, I even had the installer fail, and trying to copy the directories over to the EFI folder manually gave an error message saying some of the files were already there, when they weren't. Disk Utility was reporting lots of corruptions, even after fixing them & rebooting without doing anything else in between. Eventually I found the answer on the Ubuntu forums (UbuntuForums.org) - it seems rEFIt doesn't work with drives over about 500Gb. That's drives, not partitions (I'd already tried repartitioning with smaller partitions). Fortunately, there's a solution - install rEFInd instead. This is very similar to rEFIt in appearance and function (and is derived from much of the same code according to the docs), but has been updated to work with larger drives, amongst other things, whereas rEFIt appears to have become unsupported. Since I removed rEFIt and put rEFInd on instead, I've had no further disc corruptions, repartitioned to one big Macintosh HD again (666Gb!) and the rest for Linux, and it's working fine. The new drive is as quiet as, if not quieter than, the original. I haven't had any speed issues with it at all. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for expanding your PS3 7 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought this for my PS3 as I was very low on space after having 80GB and I am more than pleased, this is a great product, came after four days. It is easy to install into any type of PS3, just take when you are removing the soft blue screw from the PS3 caddy. Turned on the PS3, you just need to have the newest software update on a USB stick and then the HD gets formatted by the PS3 and you can either restore your settings from an external source or you now have a silly amount of space to download videos, demos, install games, etc...

The price is not too bad tbh considering the events that have occurred.

100% compatible with my HP laptop. But the protection for delivery may need to be enhanced as HDD is highly fragile

I bought this because it was a cheap 750GB HDD that I knew was easy to install on PS3's.. It seems to be working properly but you do not actually get 750GB worth of space. Of course, you never get as much free space as the label says, but Ive never encountered a 130GB "loss".. After I installed the HDD, I noticed I "only" had 620GB free space, from the initial 698GB that the harddrive supposedly had.

So a cautionary word to all PS3 users. However, I do not know if the same loss of GB applies to PC use.

But, other than this negative surprise, the HDD was cheap for the space and the order arrived quick.
