Bad Hard Drive

Summary: I was very excited about this purchase, after reading the overwhelming positive reviews. Many of the reviews were in line with my intended purpose for the hard drive, which was to upgrade my PS3. It arrived and it was very easy to install. After using my jump drive to start the PS3 install, I was all set to start downloading games and other apps. The downloads were painfully slow. I initially chalked this up to bandwidth issues during a pretty violent wind storm.
Summary: First off I recieved this in the mail 2 days earlier then expected. Very easy to install and formatting PS3 takes about 20-30mins but make sure to download Firmware 4.55 and put it on a USB stick.
Summary: So inexpensive to upgrade the ps3 hdd. Have the 120 gb slim. Changed the hdd last nite. So fast. Process was 30 min from start to finish. Including removing the hdd and putting it back together. just make sure you have an flash drive with the current ps3 update on it for installation.
Summary: I had just filled up my PS3 after many years of game installations and wanted to make sure it would last for many more years to come without having to delete install files and game saves. Installation was really easy and quick.
Summary: Install was pretty easy. Had to stop at Apple Store to have them install fresh copy of iLife and Mountain Lion but other than that I was able to do it myself. I am not technical at all. Great price and hope it continues to perform well.
Summary: I was taking a risk buying this product since I have no knoweledge about installing hdd`s but the ps3 slim is completly noob friendly just check out youtube first definatly a great buy for those who are in desperate need of extra storage space.
Summary: The drive in of itself is a good quality product, no complaints. However I used this drive for my PS3. I needed the extra space big time because I had purchased several movies from the PSN. Well, I installed the drive and began restoring my files and such when I noticed that the movies I had backed up no longer worked on the new drive. So I called Sonys support line and they told me the movies are a one shot download.
