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!
