5.0 out of 5 stars Used for my PS3 Slim 1 Jun 2012
By Marcus
Size Name:1TB|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works in 2011 13" MacBook Pro Optical Bay drive 12 Oct 2011
Size Name:1TB
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great PS3 hard drive upgrade 9 Mar 2013
By Clare
Size Name:1TB|Verified Purchase
I got this to upgrade my PS3 and it works great. (I had originally put the web address in but Amazon have removed it , sorry)

I have now been able to upgrade my PS3 slim to a 1TB drive

You need to back up your PS3 if you want to keep any of your downloaded games and save data.For this you will need a FAT32 formatted external hard drive I used this one,BIPRA 320Gb 320 GB 2.5 inch External Hard Drive Portable USB 2.0 - BLUE - FAT32 but you might get away with a smaller one depending on how much is on your PS3 already. It took roughly 4 hours to back up and then restore the PS3 data onto a FAT32 formatted drive, but only about 10 minutes to change the drives.

I also brought this FreeLogix - SATA 2.5" USB 2.0 External Hard Drive Disk Case Enclosure - Black (Free travel case included) to put the old drive into once I had removed it. This case came with a little screwdriver that perfectly fit the screws in the PS3 hard drive caddy which was an unexpected bonus.

It is worth noting that very few guides mention that you need to download a copy of the most recent PS3 firmware update from a pc onto a USB stick (this can be found on the uk playstation site. Download the update then on your USB make a folder called PS3 then inside this another one called UPDATE and put your firmware file in there. Before I did anything else I double checked I had copied the files correctly by scrolling to the system update section on the xmb bar and asked it to update using external media- when it told me it was the same as the current version, I knew it could read my USB.

5.0 out of 5 stars easy as chips 20 July 2012
By Evel84
Size Name:1TB|Verified Purchase
Bought this because I had filled up my 80gb PS3 (the original model) without any photos, music & videos stored on it. There were several games I wanted to download from the PS Store that required me to purchase more memory. I couldn't have asked for anything better. Removing the old HDD and insterting this one was a doddle. Just take out a few screws, replace drive, re-insert screws, switch on, format drive (following onscreen prompt) and away you go. Now I can store anything and everything on my PS3!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is PS3 Compatible 8 Mar 2012
Size Name:500GB|Verified Purchase
I bought this as an replacement hard drive for my 80G PS3. This is a 2.5 inch Sata drive so I was brave enough to buy it although I had some hesitations since it doesn't say it is PS3 compatible. The hard drive came well packed (anti static bag in bubble wrap taped into a card board box) and on time.

I did the upgrading using instructions found on the internet.

I happened to have a Buffalo external HDD formatted in fat32 and it was very easy to make a back up with my ps3. The HDD doesn't need to be empty, mine had some jpg pictures etc. but had plenty of room for the back up. I also copied the system software file from Playstations home page to that same HDD.

Although instructions say you have to have a small screw driver I used a normal x-shaped one with a firm rubber handle and sharp tip to open the first screw and one with a flatter tip for second ones. It was easy and I didn't have to use force at all. Not that I have any, being a woman.

You don't have to reconfigure wlan network or anything although the ps3 asks you to. I just passed that phase and went straight to restoring back up. That restored all the configurations too.

You might want to consider throwing an anti static wrist strap into your order. Just to be on the safe side. I didn't have any, just touched some metal before starting the process, but felt a bit nervous since static electricity can break a hard drive.
