*********PLEASE NOTE THIS IS FOR THE 1TB HDD and NOT for the 2TB*********

I don't usually write reviews so i'll keep it short.

I put this into my ps3 slim maybe a month or so ago now and so far it seems a lot quicker and quieter than the existing drive.
If you are looking to buy a new drive for your ps3 slim i woud definately recommend this!
It's quick and easy to install

All you need to do before you remove your old drive is use the backup utility on your ps3 and back everything up to some form of external media (i used my 120gig ipod classic)and then make sure you sync all of your trophies before you remove the drive (you need to sync the trophies because the back-up utility does not do this).

Once everything is backed up you need to download the latest ps3 firmware, which can be found on their website, i then created the folder PS3 then another inside that called UPDATE (case sensitive for both) and make sure the file you download goes into this update folder. I put the PS3 folder with its contents onto my backup media as well(if you have space).

All you then need to do is pop the old drive out, put the new one in (very very simple, just slots in), plug the controller into your ps3 with the cable and also plug in your backup media, then turn it on, the ps3 will look for the update file and install all the relevant software, you can then use the backup utility (or something like that) to restore your old settings and files (games etc) all thats left once that is done is to re-sync the trophies back to your ps3.

Sit back and enjoy. The whole process took a long time for me (only the backup and restoring of the backup) so i'd do it when you've got other things to get on with.

I have just installed this into my 13" MacBook Pro 2011 optical bay drive, I have already got a 120Gb solid state drive in my hard drive bay and needed more storage so decided to take a chance on this fitting and it does perfectly! No compatibility issues and reasonably easy to fit in the optical bay with the appropriate caddy. I thought I best put this on here as it might help others.

I bought this ready for the PS4 as I wasn't happy with the 500GB drive you get as standard. It fits like a glove, runs smooth and quiet and the PS4 took it like they were meant to be together. If you want an upgrade for your Ps4 or indeed the PS3 get this.

Speeds seem fast, I have downloaded and installed games of 20GB plus and it took no time at all.

Not much more to say.

This internal hard drive was a gift from me to a UK friend that had been tons of help to me with my own computer. This wonderful person is top-of-the-line in knowing everything there is to know about computers, their workings, how to fix them, and what they should do when all is said and done, so I got in touch with him and asked how this new hard drive was doing for him and also told him I was going to review it for Amazon. Here are his own words: "HDD is perfect, works superb in a laptop, also i fitted it to a pc , and it works better than any older drives ive fitted to the tower. keeps cool, works well, copies files from 34-->95mbps, so all in all a big thumbs up."
So there you go, a happy customer and a happily running computer. Can't do better than that. Happy endings are always the goal, so this is a highly recommended product. Thank you Amazon and thank you Samsung.

Many people have used these and other 1 TB with Playstation 3's without issue. There is however a bug with the 12GB super slim. this results in failure at 70% as the system tries to rebuild the data on the drive.

There is a workaround and a small amount of googling will help

To cut a long story short:

Set up the PS3 on the internal flash storage if not already done.

back up the system data with a USB stick from the menu. should be a FAT32 formatted stick.

Enter safe mode, please google this. you have to hold down the power button for three steps until the menu stays up

Select change storage option item 2

It should say file system is corrupt. At this stage insert the backed up USB stick and select restore system

This should work ok
