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 Bought for a PS4 upgrade. 3 Dec 2013
Size Name:1TB|Verified Purchase
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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works for PS3 12GB - but not straight away 28 Nov 2012
Size Name:1TB|Verified Purchase
Bought this to upgrade the PS3 12GB Super Slim to a (more than) reasonable size.

The new PS3 12GB at about £150 is a bargain, but it does lack some space for 2012 living. However, fortunately it is designed to be easily upgraded by the owner. Although the PS3 recognised the drive right away, it couldn't format it correctly and load the system software. The solution was to go into the PS3 safe mode (Google how to do this) and then select Option 1a. After that it was fine and the measly 12GB is now a whacking 831GB available space. Note that you will need a caddy to put the drive into to keep it safe and secure.
