Ideal for installing a PS3 drive, You can't really go wrong.,
This review is from: Sony PlayStation 3 Replacement Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Mounting Bracket (Accessory)
Perfect for anyone wanting to install either a new or old hard drive into the new PS3 12GB device that comes with no hard drive as standard.
This is a mounting bracket so you can secure your hard drive into your 12GB device properly, the build quality is good and the price is probably about right.
PS3s require a 5400rpm 2.5" hard drive, other drives will not work so please ensure you have the correct hard drive to install, any hard drives out of old PS3s will work.
Please bear in mind, when you install a new hard drive into a PS3 you will be forced to format it and will lose any data on the drive.
In short, does what you need it to do.

It doesn't have to be 5400rpm. Mine is 7200 rpm - not that there is any significant increase in speed, as the data is encrypted before being written to the hard-drive, however it was all I had spare.
5400rpm is usually the most common rpm for a 2.5" SATA hard-drive.
It's also worth noting that some hard-drives are 9.5mm thick and others 12.5mm thick - 12.5mm thick hard-drives will NOT fit.
So, to summise;
2.5" SATA hard-drive. 9.5mm thick. RPM no major concern.

You can even use a SSD 2.5" HDD as long it is 9,5mm tick.
