5.0 out of 5 stars Purcashed to Upgrade PS3 (Fat one), 21 Mar 2011
This review is from: Seagate ST9500420AS, 500GB Mobile SATA Momentus, 7200RPM 16MB Cache (Electronics)
I bought to upgrade my PS3 (the fat one) as I only had 40gb, very easy to install and actually looks identical to the drive I removed, exactly the same size and also a Seagate... I didn't backup the contents before I did this I saved my saved games on a usb and decided that losing the rest would be fine. Installation was very easy, pop the plastic cover off the bottom, unscrew 1 screw, pull bay out, replace drive and slot back in ( you can find instructions with pictures online ) When I turned back on it asked for the latest update file. I downloaded this and put it on a usb, it is a *.pup file and needs to be saved onto you're the USB within a directory called \\PS3\Update\ Once I popped this in then it installed and worked fine. Worthing noting that I was able to download everything that I had downloaded off the Playstation store for free and I was also able to go into singstar and download all my songs again, also for free. Backup was looking for a usb of at least 25 gigs to cover all my stuff so this may prove an easier way. Overall very happy, Overall seems a little faster than it used to be, no major speed improvement in loading games but does seems a little faster (might just be my imagination!)
