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: This Drive was installed as a replacement for a 320GB Drive for my PS3 Phat (itself a replacement for the stock 80GB Drive)& has been utterly trouble-free.

Summary: I was torn between this and the Western Digital equivalent. I have the WD in my laptop and it seems to be a reliable, quiet drive, but I did read a few reviews saying that PS3 games can freeze for a split second or so with the that drive.

Summary: Chose 4 because I'm not sure what else a hard drive is supposed to do except for be a hard drive. I bought it to upgrade our PS3 12G. If you are doing the same, you will also need to get the caddy which holds it in place.
Summary: I'm happy enough with this seagate hard drive. I purchased it to upgrade my 60 gb hard drive on my PS3, I now have acres of space on my Ps3 to download any games/expansions without being constrained by a lack of available space.
