Not ideal for PS3

Sarre, Amazon
21 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to replace the 60GB Seagate Momentus that came with my launch PS3. It installed fine, no hardware problems like the other reviewer.

Western Digital AV-25 WD5000BUCT - 500GB 5400rpm 16MB 2.5zoll - SATA300

  • Summary: Hab die Pladde hier am WE bestellt, Dienstags war die Lieferung da sehr sicher verpackt. Lob an Cyberport für die Schnelligkeit und die Packweise hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Die Pladde habe ich in eine ältere (dicke) PS3 (40GB Seagate) eingebaut das lief problemlos.

eine der wenigen Festplatten ohne "head parking"

Pizzamann , Conrad
25 September 2012
  • Summary: Diese Festplatte ist eine der wenigen Festplatten, die nicht mit standardmaßig aktiviertem "head parking" ausgeliefert werden. Dieses "head parking" (= IntelliPark) reduziert die Lebensdauer von Festplatten auf geschätzt 3-5 Jahre (Stichwort: Geplante Obsoleszenz).
  • Pros: kein standby bei inaktivität, kein "head parking" (intellipark)
