    5.0 out of 5 stars Great upgrade for PS3 Users 22 April 2011
    Size Name:640GB|Verified Purchase
    Had my PS3 from day one back in March 2007 60GB version and now the hard drive is getting full. So with this in mind I upgraded to this drive and I don't know why I didn't do it sooner!

    Before you install the new drive make sure you backup your old drive first to an external drive if you want to keep your data ie. downloaded games, addons, save data etc. etc.

    The changer over could not be easier pop the cover off the side and one blue screw to undo then slide the drive out easy, well this part was the 4 screws that was holding the original drive in were that tight (over tightened as the cradle was bent at these points) that I managed to get two out with not rounding the pozi drive heads the other two I had to drill the heads off to free the drive from the cradle not fun but I have done this lots of time in my job.

    With the new drive fitted in the cradle slide back in to place and remember to fit the blue screw and side plate back on. Turn on the PS3 and straight away it finds the new drive and formats it to the PS3 system reboot the system and away you go (At first it did not find the drive after formatting it had to hard reset then it was fine) Then just restore your data from you back up and its like it was before the swap over only with a lot more space now sign up for a Playstation Plus account and enjoy loads of new stuff. One more thing I don't know if its just me but it feels faster loading data from this drive might just be because its a clean install.

    Hope this helps fellow PS3 owners its well worth doing.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Replacement PS3 Hard drive 22 Oct 2010
    By conman
    Size Name:640GB
    I only had a 40GB hard drive for my PS3 and 40GB just isn't enough! The hard drive came very quick and was protected with two layers of foam and in two boxes. It was very easy to fit into the PS3 and worked perfectly without any problems at all. If you want a bigger hard drive for your PS3 or PC then this hard drive is great. I had Play TV (PS3) so it took up a fair bit of space on the old 40GB hard drive but now i have much more space for games, demos, updates and TV records.

    4.0 out of 5 stars PS3 80GB HHD Replacement now working. FINALLY! 30 Sep 2011
    Size Name:640GB
    I purchased this as my fat 80GB PS3 was full, and this monster hard drive was one of the first to pop up on Amazon. At a very good price might I add! Of course I read numerous reviews before making my descision and many of which were bought for the same reason as myself, with 5 star feedback. However, I didnt seem to fit mine with such ease as other buyers. Im not the techiest of people but get by alright, although the "pop old HDD out and pop new one in! easy!" didnt work for me. I got a few error messages, searched google, got more error messages, searched google some more etc... and eventually found a solution thanks to some guy on youtube who got it right. Here it is.
    1. Back up your data in system settings to an external hard drive.
    2. Turn PS3 off and remove plastic panel in left hand side, remove screw, casing, more screws, then hard drive.
    3. Insert new hard drive in casing, screw screws back in, slot back in, final screw back in, plastic back on. (plenty of videos on youtube for steps 1-3)
    4. Go to PS3 website and download latest PS3 software update (3.72 in my case), and save download to an external storage device ie. usb pen drive.
    5. This was the important bit! open storage device with file in, create new folder titled PS3 and inside that folder another titled UPDATE (both in capitals) , then inside that put the downloaded file. (.PUP file)
    6. Put pen drive in PS3 then turn on system by holding down the power button for about 5 seconds. One beep then two beeps. This takes you to a menu where you can selct the bottom option 'update'. either that or it will ask you to hold down select and start buttons together. Your PS3 should now let you format your new HDD and away you go with some easy onscreen instructions.

    By Adam P
    Size Name:640GB
    I have one of the first 40Gb models of PS3 so I needed to update the bugger! SO looked around and found this lovely HD, read the reviews and thought it was perfect so I bought it.
    Plugged it in to find the PS3 telling me " Cannot start - hard disk not found." This had me slightly miffed, so I did some research and found a set of steps which happen to work as intended! I've amalgamated all of the different websites instructions and typed them below. Hopefully, this should fix any problems

    1. Back up any data, such as trophies and save games on a USB or external HD.
    2. Turn PS3 off
    3. Remove panel in left hand side using flat head screwdriver.
    4. Remove blue screw with correctly fitting Phillips screwdriver, otherwise it ends up flattening the screw.
    5. Remove casing and , the 4 screws either side and then the HD.
    6. Insert this new hard drive in casing, replace the 4 screws (not to tight) and then slide the casing back in the console.
    7. Replace the blue screw then panel.
    8. Go the the PS3 website --> PS3 Support --> System software --> Update features, and download most recent .PUP file to be copied to a USB stick.
    9. On the USB stick, create a folder and rename it 'PS3' and another folder in that named 'UPDATE' Both folder names have to be capitalized.
    10. Copy the .PUP file into the UPDATE folder.
    11. Insert the USB onto the PS3. Turn the console on whilst holding down the button until one beep then two beeps have been heard.
    12. On the presented menu, select 'update' at the bottom and follow the on screen instructions.
    13. Now the new HD should work fine.
