nice replacement for PS3 HD crash, but needs formatting prior to installing

G-13 "Gman", Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: PS3 replacement HD, would be a 5star rating. But i had to format the drive prior to installing it in the PS3. Which was a pain in the ass, seeing as i had to crack open my tower PC to format this HD.

Backup HDD

Blake T., Newegg
9 November 2012
  • Summary: We backup over 300GB of data on a daily basis, then zip it up with a password to one of these HDDs. It has worked with very few problems for years. The more data we save the longer it takes, but we do get a full daily off-site backup. I will be replacing the failed drive with a 500GB 7200RPM drive.
  • Pros: One of the three drives stopped spinning-up after 2.5 years with an 11-day cycle (backing up every 11 days). We take these drives to the bank for off-site backup.
  • Cons: These are relatively slow drives. We have a couple of 500GB 7200RPM drives that are ready earlier in the day

  • Summary: I ran it in my Sony Vaio F for a year, and then I put it in my PS3 which is where it still is today.
  • Pros: It works as expected.
  • Cons: It's not very quick as its 5400 RPM.

Worked for 4 months

Anonymous, Newegg
1 February 2012
  • Summary: The reason I gave this 4 eggs was because it worked until I no longer "needed" it and the other 6 Western Digital hard drives I have in my desktop tower have worked for several years without the slightest hint of breaking down. I have only and will ever only purchase Western Digital drives.
  • Pros: It worked great for 4 months. It was fast, had no issues and was easily transferable between computers
  • Cons: 3 days before christmas, it somehow had corrupted sectors. The drive was still readable... on linux, but has massive amounts of corrupted information.

Knowingly Satisfied

Anonymous, Newegg
12 October 2011
  • Summary: My HDD purchases are primarily based on price per byte. While heat should always be a consideration, I'm never concerned with noise (if a spin up sounds like a freight train then there are obviously mechanical issues).
  • Pros: Apt fix for a laptop that my nephew dropped which corrupted Vista's system file(s). This purchase, an enclosure and Ubuntu via bootable USB enabled me to copy files he wanted to save and then clean install an OS. Heat from this drive does not seem to be a problem which is crucial in tight enclosu...
  • Cons: None.

Great deal

Tarun Y., Newegg
30 June 2011
  • Summary: For $45, this was a pretty good deal - I was a little concerned about getting a bad unit or a high failure rate but everything seems to be okay so far. All in all, a recommended buy.
  • Pros: I bought this to replace the 160 GB drive in my 3 year old HP laptop so of course, the increase in space is the biggest plus for me. It also seems to be running a little cooler than my previous drive.
  • Cons: On the other hand, it does seem to run just a tiny bit slower - it was noticeable when I initially switched but after a few months of use, not so much.
