Summary: I got this hard drive on Monday. So far almost a week in and everything works just fine. I followed the process of switching out your HDD for your PS3 and placed my 500GB HDD inside the system. The drive worked great and the 4.66 update was installed. once I restored my console I checked my system information and there it was. The amount of free space of GB was updated. Then after that came the tedious task of reinstalling EVERYTHING onto this new HDD.
Summary: A week in and it's working great in my PS3. Installation was easy but time consuming, with 95% spent backing up the old drive and then transferring it to the new one once installed. But the steps to take are simple and easily found on Sony forums and on YouTube. A little time on Google will get you all the info you need if you don't already know. Just be aware you'll need a 2nd external drive formatted to Fat32 to back up to if you don't already have one.
Summary: fit right in the laptop dell n7110 after reassembly took a bit to reinstall windows and update everything the hard drive is fast plenty of memory and great product for the price and plus 2 year warranty for 2 bucks that was a steal what a deal.
So far, so good. But only time can tell in these situations.

Summary: So far, it's a solid drive. However, you can't review an item like this (properly) in the first week or even month....unless, of course, it dies (LOL). The hard part about reviewing a hard drive is general knowledge of what you're really supposed to expect out of them. People want speed, mostly, but i'll take long-life any day. I may update this review in say...6 months. But, off the bat, this drive seems to be doing good.
