PS3 HD Often Fails on Start Up
Jeffrey D., Newegg
21 November 2011
Summary: Bought this to increase the storage on my PS3. Most the time it works no issues but every few times I boot up my PS3 now it will say "Hard Drive Not Found" and I will have to do a hard shutdown and reboot.
Pros: It's got a lot of capacity, obviously. It's possibly the best brand. thought I like WD also. It is shockingly inexpensive. I can't report on the seek time, because I'm not sure I notice the difference.
Cons: I must say that to my mind--or listening--it really is quite loud. It's noticably loud. maybe not a loud as the drives on the PC's i used to have. BUT , HAVING REPLACED THE OEM DRIVE WHICH MY MACBOOK PRO 2009 HAD ORIGINALLY COME WITH--Which I had gotten used to as being shockingly nearly complete...
Summary: This really is a good drive as far as everything else goes, but it did fail on me. Getting a replacement from where I bought of the same thing so I hope that one lasts longer. Much longer. In the meantime, backup, backup, backup!
Pros: Fast, not noisy, big space upgrade for my MacBook.
Cons: Failed in about 2 and a half months, but not before I got my data off it.
Summary: I had a DOA drive, worked, but couldnt be formatted due to damaged kernels in certain areas. HOWEVER, new egg's service cant be beat. Mailed it out Saturday, today is monday, they already have a new one on its way, and I'm betting it'll be just fine.
Cons: DOA the first time arrived. Sent it back for replacement yet another DOA. Blue Screen of Death 2nd time in a row what a coincidence. I'm guessing it's either UPS mistreating the shipment or it's just that I was unlucky receiving bad product twice in a row...
Summary: Die Festplatte schien anfangs verlässlich. Sie liess sich leicht einbauen und war nach Einbau auch sofort kompatibel mit meinem System. Leider zeigte sie aber nach 9 Monaten den ersten "Bad Error". Kann bestimmt passieren, ist aber schade.
