First of all Amazon provided a competitive price and prompt delivery for this Hard Drive.
After reading a number sites regarding this Hard Drive upgrade for the PS3 and watching nurmerous video's on Youtube, I decided to take the plunge and upgrade my 40gb HD on my PS3.
I only wanted to perform one upgrade so I decided on the Seagate 500gb Momentus HD.
The whole process was easy, firstly back up all your saved data via the System settings, use a portable HD formatted to FAT32 ! Use Swissknife V3 to format to FAT32.
The physical change of the HD was simple, pop the cover, undo the blue screw, slide to the right and remove. I read alot that the 4 screws that secure the HD in the caddy were really tight and difficult. I didn't have this problem, just make sure you use the correct size philips screw driver ie a smaller one. I re-fitted the new HD and Bingo ! The PS3 recognised I had changed my HD, it asked me to format it, which I did, the system restarted and I had a whopping 465gb ( remember you loose some storage space as per the norm). In fact the longest task was reloading your downloaded games via the Playstation Store. Remember all your settings ie wireless, Playstation store login etc are stored on the flash drive and not the HD, so they are stored in a different location.
The pS3 uses Seagate OEM's so this is why I went for this Drive, it works perfectly. Loads a spare space now, Simple and Easy !!

It works perfectly with my PS3 and it is quieter than I expected. I have been using it for almost a month now on the PS3 (original 60GB model) and it has not given me a single problem.
It's a very good hard drive to buy, especially for upgrading you PlayStation 3 storage. I would recommend this to any PS3 users who are running out of space!

I have used Seagate hard drives for years and wanted to replace a Seagate 100GB in a Mac Book Pro with this one.

As can happen with hard drives, the new one failed early on - 35 days after it had been purchased!

This is not a complaint about Seagate drives - in my experience hard drives either fail early on or last for years

Unfortunately, Amazon appear to have an unusual view of the returns aspects of the Sale of Goods Act - after 30 days it is the manufacturers fault.

Happily Seagate have a superb returns and recovery system and I was up and running again within a week.

So, if your hard drive fails early, I can heartily recommend Seagate's no nonsense returns policy. I have used them for years and will continue to do so!

I have a 60 gig ps3 and it quickly got full, as each game played created a large file. Games such as oblivion and fallout create data files of about 5 gig. I decided to get a replacement drive, 500gb drive (465 actual capacity due to conversions from bytes to gigabytes).
I was unsure whether to go for Seagate or Western Digital, both are reputable and reliable hard drive manufactures, and specification there are very similar (noise, vibration etc) so a coin toss would suffice in deciding between them. I based my decision on pretty much the fact that it was slightly cheaper then WD hard drive and carries a 5 year warranty rather then Western Digital 3 year. Also the fact that most models of the PS3 use Seagate hard drives.

There has been mixed responses of how easy people found it to replace the hard drive. I personally didn't find it easy at all. The principle of doing it is straightforward. But on accessing the hard drive compartment your met with brutally tight screws. The screws are so tight that it is extremely easy to round the screw heads off, the frustration is immense (it seems that the screws are made from a slightly more rigid form of bluetac). A tip is to initially buy a screwdriver with a large handle (approx size phillips head no.0) if the unforgiving screws still don't want to release the hard drive you can do what i was forced to do. Carefully get pair of pliers tightly grip and twist the screw (lefty loosy, righty tighty :O) until you hear a quite loud crack (don't worry its not the hard drive) which signifies the screws releasing the hard drive. Once the new hard drive is slid into the compartment put the screws back in, it is not necessary to have them tight, just need them to effectively secure the hard drive and prevent it moving.

Got this for my MacBook to replace the original hard drive. The item was delivered quickly and arrived well packaged. After having backed up my data, the actual task of removing the old drive and inserting this one was an absolute doddle (thanks to the instructions provided on the Apple site). I was a bit worried that the new drive would reduce battery life. The fan does seem to kick in a little more than it used to but that may just be because I've taken the opportunity to re-organise my data as I've restored it - and the battery life seems as good as it has ever been. The drive itself seems just as quiet as the old one and access speeds are good. All in all I would thoroughly recommend this product particularly if you are thinking of upgrading your mac!
