Product Description

WD Scorpio Blue drives offer high-performance, low power consumption, and cool operation, perfect for notebooks and other portable devices. Pick the drive that suits your needs with the confidence in knowing that all WD Scorpio Blue drives are built to the highest standards of quality and reliability.

Massive capacity - whether they are in an external drive or a notebook computer 500 GB WD Scorpio Blue 2.5-inch drives offer the most available capacity for space-hungry operating systems like Windows Vista plus plenty of room left over for photos music and video.

Quiet - in a notebook drive silence is golden. WDs exclusive WhisperDrive combines state-of-the-art seeking algorithms to yield one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market. These algorithms also optimize the way a drive seeks for data which significantly improves power consumption. So now silence (and longer battery life) is golden.

Reliable and rugged - WD's ShockGuard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks. WD's SecurePark parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up spin down and when the drive is off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface resulting in improved long-term reliability due to less head wear and improved non-operational shock tolerance

PS3 Slimline Hard Drive replacement

Slimline PS3 Hard Drive froze and began making a clicking noise. I tried reformatting the existing drive a couple of times but it simply kept stopping after 60-70%. So, faced with dealing with Sony I decided to try & replace it myself.
I'd never tried something like this before so wasn't 100% confident but having switched over last night I can vouch for how simple the whole process was, took less than an hour. The physical swop itself took minutes.
Fortunately I didn't have too much on the exisiting drive so wasn't concerned with backups.
The cross thread screws were quite tight so do ensure you use a suitable screwdriver, I ordered the Draper suggested by Amazon when I bought this drive. The only frustration being the screwdriver took several more days to arrive than the Hard Drive. The drive itself arrived very securely packaged, no danger of problems in the post.

- On your memory stick create a folder called PS3 (upper case)
- In the PS3 folder create another folder called UPDATE (upper case)
- Go to the Playstation website
- Download the latest Operating Software (at the time of this review it is v3.50).
- Cut and Paste downloaded file into UPDATE folder
- Put the memory stick safely to one side

- Turn over PS3 and open the small flap on the bottom. Once opened you will see the blue head of a screw. This locks the hard drive in place in the PS3 so unscrew and carefully put the screw somewhere safe. (putting all screws on a piece of sticky tape or piece of paper is sometimes recommended).
- Slide the front panel (under the disc slot, the one with all the features printed on the casing) to the right and it should reveal the existing hard drive.

Ok I'm not doing the "it works" thing with out saying what its working in!

Right it works in a 2007 black 2.16 core 2 duo cpu macbook. This is a 2,1 version macbook with an intel SATA 1 controller running at 1.5 GBit/s. Western digital drives that are SATA2 (3 GBit/s) will auto configure to run with all intel SATA 1 hard disk controllers! There is a SATA 3 (6 GBIT/s) out soon and according to western digital's www apart from very early SATA1 HDD controllers all SATA 1,2,3 hard drives by them will work forwards and backwards with SATA 1,2,3 controllers on mother boards. It may be possible to put a 500 gig 7200 rpm drive in as apple sell 250 , 320 gig 7200 rpm drives now. So all macbooks and macbook pro's from mid 2007 (core 2 duo with intel sata 1 controller) will take a 500 gig 5400 rpm sata 2 western digital HDD, as for other makes as long as the drive auto senses and behaves like a SATA 1 HDD then there shouldn't be a problem! This drive has been running perfectly for 5 days now and it does boot quicker than the SATA 1 drive I had in before. To replace your old HDD with this one took about an hour and a half including installing leopard 10.5 . This drive is a quality product and is recommended highly, would give it 6 star's if I could

Put it in my laptop and did a clean install of Windows 7 x64. Worked absolutely fine for one day so I was really happy, but on the morning of the second day is started squeaking and beeping at me. It continually made a high pitched electronic sounding beep whenever it was idle or seeking. This went on for two days of updating drivers, looking for new firmware etc. before I contacted WD and they told me to send it back. Currently awaiting the new one.

It worked great for a day and arrived quickly so two stars, but fingers crossed the replacement doesn't sing at me as well.

Well, it worked fine for two whole hours - nice and quiet - before starting to click and not working at all.

Now i know even the best manufacturers occasionally produce duds, and I hope my experience is exceptionable, which is why I'm giving three stars rather than one, but let the record state...

I purchased this HDD in order to replace the current drive in my Notebook computer. The idea was to buy a disc caddy in order that I could clone the existing HDD onto the new Western Digital Scorpio Blue 500gb drive, and then simply remove the old drive and replace with the new one.

The only problem was when installed into the caddy and plugged into the Notebood via USB the (Vista) operating system didn't 'see' the new drive. However, a quick call to Western Digital's Technical Helpdesk soon solved that one! Western Digital really do have an excellent helpdesk and was one of the main reasons why I had purchased their drive.

Once I had made the disc visible to the operating system it was a simple task using Paragon's Hard Disk Manager software to format the drive and then make a cloned copy of the drive installed in the Notebook. I swapped them over and the Notebook booted noticeably quicker, with everything working fine. Plus I now have a portable hard drive using the original HDD in the caddy - Job done!

Western Digital HDD are excellent and well priced, but the deciding factor is their superb technical helpdesk.

I had a 250GB hard drive and really wanted a larger one to fit all my media in. The WD Hard Drive (500GB) has been great so far, easy to fit and has performed well.
I would completely recommend the price and performance.
