5.0 out of 5 stars Great drive for PS3 25 Oct 2010
Does what it says on the tin. Swapped HD in my PS3, I now have 465GB instead of 37GB. Very nice, and quieter than the stock HD too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful HDD, really quiet. 7 Oct 2010
By Andrew
I bought this as a replacement for my PS3 as the WD I bought had stuttering issues. It was really easy to install (well I've done it half a dozen times now), and it is far quieter than my previous Hard Drives. Restoring my data was pretty quick compared to the other HDD. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase.

I tried everything for this to work, I ended up getting a new ps3 slim! I have put this to one side as returning would be a nightmare after reading the returns policy! Be careful people.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but a little slow 4 Mar 2011
By Arabibi
The Good

The price, the quick delivery, fitted perfectly (watch out for screws being striped holding the cage to the original hard drive) and its a very quiet hard drive.

the PS3 will give you 413GB out of 465Gb due to a 11sh% allocation for system memory (it took me ages to research this as i though im short of 52GB!!!!!!! But this is quite normal.

The Bad

Maybe its due to the hard drive being 500gb, but it now takes longer to install files!!!

Overall

Buy it, Samsung and Seagate are my personal favorite hard drives and the reviews for the Samsung are much better than the Seagates
