Xbox360 compatible

Tamir B., Newegg
2 September 2010
  • Summary: I was a bit hesitant to upgrade my xbox harddisk this way, and did a lot of research beforehand. It ended up being much much easier than I expected and I was up and running within half an hour. As opposed to most of the hddhackr guides online, in v2.2 all you need to type in the dos prompt is 'hddhackr' without any variables. It automatically detects and does everything for you.
  • Pros: As mentioned by others, it works great with the non-slim Xbox360. The HDDHackr 2.2 version detects it automatically and also creates all the partitions. I have an Arcade xbox I'm using this on so I didn't have to format the drive afterwards. Just put it in a cheap case I found online and it was ready to go. 228Gb of usable space for a great price. Received the disk the day after I ordered, can't beat that!
  • Cons: Nothing I can think of..

Xbox 360 hard drive

Matthew N., Newegg
12 July 2010
  • Summary: Upgraded from a stock 20gb that was running low on space. Would definitely recommend this hard drive to someone looking for a cheap upgrade to their Xbox 360. Getting it to work with the 360 was fast and fairly simple using hddhakr.
  • Pros: -Works flawlessly with the 360.
  • Cons: Not one.

Works with Xbox 360

Tawin K., Newegg
29 June 2010
  • Summary: I had to connect it to my desktops SATA-0 port to get the HDDHACKR to recognize it. Not sure why the SATA-1 port couldn't be recognized.
  • Pros: HDDHACKR compatible for Xbox 360. 7200RPM feels much faster, or maybe it's in just in my head... 250GBs is the max for Xbox 360 right now so this is as good as it gets for less than half the price of the retail one.
  • Cons: None yet.

PS3 HD Upgrade

David W., Newegg
8 October 2008
  • Summary: Either this 250G HD or a 160G HD are perfect upgrades for anyone running out of room on their PS3 HD. You really can't go wrong, and the installation is so easy its rediculous. Only time consuming part of the HD swap is backing the PS3 stuff onto an external HD. Took about 40 min to back it up, then another 40 min to restore everything back to exactly how it was before the HD swap. The actual HD remove/install only took less than 5 min to complete.
  • Pros: Easy upgrade to the 60G Launch PS3. Gives you an extreme amount of room to download movies, music, and games without worrying about HD space. Load times have been increased due to going from a 5400 RPM HD up to a 7200 RPM HD.
  • Cons: None.

Perfect "quiet" alternative...

Mark M., Newegg
25 September 2008
  • Summary: For those who aren't sure if a Notebook hard drive upgrade is complicated... its not. Pull the cover off your hard drive, unscrew the housing, put the housing around your new hard drive (hopefully this one) and plug it in. Place your recovery discs in and reinstall... thats it. People complain on here about the noise... you will notice a very slight "fan" sound (hence "whisper") but NO clicking like MANY of the other hard drives (especially Hitachi - yuck!
  • Pros: Too many to list: Whisper Drive, means whisper not "muted". Faster speed - immediately noticed - 7200 over 5400 is worth it, 3.0gb vs. 1.3 also a +. Increased boot time and shut down. I've owned several WD before and all haven't burnt out. Oldest one is 4+ yrs (external) - and still going strong. This particular hard drive has one SEVERAL awards for being quiet vs. Hitachi and Samsung.
  • Cons: ~literately NONE~
