Summary: Bought this as an upgrade for my CECHA01 60GB Fat PS3. Was a little worried that PS3 firmware wouldn't fully support Advanced Format (4k sectors) hard drive, but everything seems fine. To clear up something some seem confused about on here, ALL of the PS3 firmware for first-gen fats is saved on the flash memory, none on the HDD, so no need to download the firmware update to a thumb drive or anything like that. Just pop new HDD in, turn unit back on, all done.
Summary: It did take me a little time to format this item to be used with my ps3, BUT I also was using a dino computer. All-in-all, once formated and put into my ps3, works like a charm. 1TB of space reduced to 929 gb after everything was install, (minus games and other misc stuff) have been using constantly and no problems what-so-ever. Conclusion, best investment ever!
Summary: Guys, if your looking to upgrade your ps3 hard drive then this is the hard drive for u. I had a 160 GB HDD in my ps3 slim and was running out on space, because I'm a guy who download a lot music games, pictures, home brew. You name it. I get 948GB after I format and install this and that's still a lot of free space and I have like over 600 GB left.
