Summary: Bought this HDD to upgrade my 120GB slim PS3. Very easy to do if you follow any online instructions or youtube videos. Here's what I did: 1. Backed up my 120GB content through PS3 backup utility to a external drive (I was able to use an SD card w USB adaptor) 2. Formatted this 1TB drive to FAT32 (not NTFS) through my PC 3. swap out the 120GB and plug in this drive 4. downloaded the latest PS3 slim system update in an USB drive 5.
Summary: I bought this after a few weeks of searching around to upgrade my PS3 slim, the drive is perfect. It offers a ton of space and as everyone knows by now could not be easier to swap out with the exisiting HDD in the console. I have had the drive installed since FEB but waited a few months to come in and give anytype of review or rating because I wanted to make sure the system would function fine with it in.
Summary: I bought this HD to replace my PS3's original 60gb HD. So far so good a HUGE leap in memory and at a GREAT price!! I would totally recommend this HD for anybody wanting to transfer their existing PS3 systems existing HD. Dont go for anything less then a Terrabyte either. The PS3 for the last few years has been having gaming companies force you to download most of the games memory onto the PS3's memory therefore you can burn through your PS3's memory now in just a few...
Summary: Installation was super easy in my slim PS3. The set up, while it took quite a while, was simple. Hard drive works great and now I have plenty of room for all my music, videos, and games. Excellent purchase at a great price.
Summary: Easy to install. It fits just as it should. A direct upgrade replacement for your PS3 Slims Hard drive. I would assume they would work for all models that need the 2.5" type. No altering or anything, slid right in, worked right away no complaints.
Summary: This works very well for my ps3. In fact, it is one of the few (maybe the only one) of the 1tb drives that is both the correct speed and thickness to work. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with a ps3 looking to upgrade their storage space. It is also a good idea to consider using a digistor usb ps3 backup to backup your old hard drive first.
Works for PS3, although not as much space as you may think

Summary: I put this drive in an original model PS3, and it works fine. A couple things to keep in mind regarding storage space. First, the binary vs decimal issue that is fairly well know. In this case, the drive is actually 931GB. Second, the PS3 reserves a certain % of the hard drive space for system use. Unfortunately, this % seems to be the same regardless of the size of hard drive installed.
Summary: I bought this HDD to upgrade my PS3 slim. I needed more HDD space to store all the DLC, digital version of games, and digital copies of movies all on my console. It has worked for the last year with no issues and I have all the space I need since my PS3 is my main entertainment hub for Blurays, gaming, and watching movies.
