Summary: இ Fuzzy Wuzzy's Summary: ѾѾѾѾѾ Highly recommended with warm fuzzies! I have two of these 1-TB drives installed in a laptop that is often used for the editing of photos, images, and very large video files. I had originally considered getting two of the faster 7200-RPM "Scorpio Black" series drives.
Summary: This drive definitely helped breathe new life into mine... Have a PS3 Slim 160GB drive (I think) that with PS+ Games and Movies filled up very quickly. After ordering and receiving the new drive (received very quickly BTW) I backed up my original data to an external hard drive, performed the "so easy a caveman could do it" drive swap, initiated the restore and WHAMO everything works perfectly! So far, no issues with heat or incompatibility. Will update later!
Summary: Works for my HP Pavillion Laptop. And most hard drives are loud. But I this one isn't very loud at all. Good Price and I upgraded it from a 200gb to a 1tB. If I needed another one I would buy from this place again.
Summary: The stock hard drive in the laptop was 160gb and was easily taken up by photos, and the OS updates. The 1TB drive is large enough that none of that really matters. It was super easy to swap the stock drive out. Took no more than 10 minutes. Have to have your OS on a disk that you can boot from to do the install, and after that it's good to go. Crucial is the only place I'll go to when dealing with hard drives or memory.
Summary: I purchased this drive after painstaking research on the internet for the largest and most reliable drive to place in my "Fat" launch 60gb PS3. My system is backward compatible and I wanted the most space available to place all my PS1, PS2 and PS3 game saves, as well as all my downloads, DLC and Platstation@Home content. (Seems every time you log on there's stuff to download or update!
