Good but not the real deal

Summary: I order this from MBMTUSA. I needed a hard drive for my son DELL Inspiron 1545 laptop, the old one was a 350 GB original Samsung made in Korea, and it lasted 5yrs. I wanted to upgrade to 1T so I looked in Amazon for a 1T Samsung hard drive.
Summary: I signed up for PlayStation Plus and all the free games, updates, movies, demos the list goes on and I realized I need a bigger hard drive and this drive works great!!! More space, good performance in the PS3... Quick and easy job!
Summary: As we know this type of product has long life time in computer point of view. So to rate more accurate I need to use it for at least 1-2 years; however, one of the things that makes me to write a review is that the speed does not change compare to the original 320GB HD.
Summary: Not nearly as fast as my other 2.5" drive, a 7200 RPM Seagate, but this one is quieter and handles the double of the capacity. Would not replace a fast 7200 RPM internal notebook HD for this one, but it's great if you mount in in a USB-3 case: then you'll have a very compact 1TB portable storage...
Summary: I bought this to upgrade my 160GB PS3 slim and it works perfectly fine. I haven't notice any increase or decrease in loading times. The fact that my PS3 now has 931GB available makes my happy. The only reason I will not give this product due to shipping and delivery time.
WORKS WITH MAC, BUT DOESN'T SHIP WITH ORIGINAL BOX

Summary: It came in an excellent box, perfect protection, works great but didn't ship with original box, also came with slight scratch of wear. maybe it doesn't come with boxes, but just that complaint, but hey 1 tb for laptop at this price.
Summary: I purchased this drive to swap HDD for PS3. See YouTube for instructions. Solid product for what I intended to use. Too early to say it but I give it 4 stars for now. 1 star off due to insufficient and improper packaging when it was shipped.
Summary: Many people have used these and other 1 TB with Playstation 3's without issue. There is however a bug with the 12GB super slim. this results in failure at 70% as the system tries to rebuild the data on the drive.
