nice replacement for PS3 HD crash, but needs formatting prior to installing
G-13 "Gman", Amazon

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.
Summary: For less than $50 320GB is a lot space and made my purchase a real bargain. I considered a 5400 RPM HDD keeping in mind heat and consumption. So far so good. It's a very silent HDD and it seems pretty fast. Western Digital is a brand with reputation. Nonetheless, I couldn't find any information about product registration and warranty.
Summary: This is a good item but, Picture is a RETAIL box and the item that showed up was a foam packed box not a retail packaged product. why show one thing and ship another.. thats not cool. Product does work well and is a good value but still.. I thought I was getting a retail packaged product..
Summary: This 320GB Hard drive by Western Digital is just what the doctor order. I wanted to upgrade my PS3 from a 40GB, so I decided to go large and purchased this hard drive. I removed my orignal 40GB HD and placed the 320GB HD inside my PS3 Console, hooked it up, then turned on the system formatted the new hard drive and loaded my backup.Every thing turned out beautiful and I now have more space for my games, music, and movies.
Summary: Bought this 320gb to replace my 160gb HDD in my laptop. I have an XPS M1530 and this hard drive popped right in, no problems, in two minutes. I have noticed however, that there seems to be more of the operating noise than I remembered in the previous stock HDD. Increased capacity is nice though and it seems fast enough. Good deal too at $85.
Summary: I ordered it for my PS3 Super Slim 12GB and it works just fine. Installation was easy and the system recognised the HDD in seconds without any tricks. Its very quiet and the temperture of my console seems the same since. There are faster and bigger drives on the market, but for this price its a real bargain. Note for PS3 Super Slim 12GB owners: you will need an official PS3 HDD Mounting Bracket in order to install any hard drives.
Summary: Works fine, good price, silent enough, cool enough. Still it seems to be slower than Samsung HM400JI which is 400GB but also SATA, 2.5, 5400RPM, 8MB cache. I did only one test, maybe I'm wrong... Good product anyway!
