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: Inexpensive 500 GB of Storage
  • Cons: Fails sometimes on Boot

Dying now

Alex T., Newegg
20 May 2011
  • Pros: Silent...fast. Who cares about those if the drive died in under 1 year. Not good. No wonder newegg stopped caring that.
  • Cons: I am hoping that I can recover data from that device. It is dying now...making weird noises. Price was good when I bought it..

IT'S LOUD

JEFF R., Newegg
23 May 2010
  • 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...

Failed in less than 3 months

Ahmad Q., Newegg
20 May 2010
  • 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.

DOA

22 March 2010
  • 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.
  • Pros: great price
  • Cons: DOA

DOA!!!

Jun C., Newegg
19 March 2010
  • Pros: none found yet.
  • 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...

mittlere Lebensdauer

Susulla, Amazon
1 June 2012
  • 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.
