Summary: I've had a frustrating time with this HD replacement in my lappy. Everything went swimmingly until I had filled the disc with just over 100GB, then all of a sudden, bluescreen city until one of them wrecked my Windows installation. By using the Seagate diagnostic disc, I'm finding thousands of bad sectors. Back to WD it goes!
Summary: Bought this to upgrade my Acer One netbook as I accidentally dropped it and was not sure if I could hear the harddrive clicking (as in 'click of death'). Was a toss up between Seagate or Hitachi, but the WD reviews gave this the edge. Easy to install and my netbook (also upgraded the ram & wifi card at the same time) recognised it automatically, so loads more drive space to listen to my music (CDs ripped to FLAC and listening with Foobar2000 to a dedicated headphone amp...
Summary: If like me you are going to install this on your PS3 then this may help you. Back up your files or use the backup option on the menu After you have swapped the drive over which takes a couple of minutes you'll reboot to see that you have to install the system update software. Download the system update software from the playstation site to your PC. The next bit is the bit that had me stuck until I tracked down the information on the web.
Summary: I used this drive for my Macbook and I have to say -so far- has proven to be very good.Because I fitted it into a Mac I needed to format the drive using Apple's disk utility before my computer could recognize the drive. The drive is very quite and is much better than anything else that I have used. For the money it is super value and a lot cheaper than buying an equivalent from APPLE.
Summary: I have also bought this harddrive I have had it now for about 6 months now and have put it in my PS3. The hard drive itself seems to work well i have no complaints anyway works fine with a ps3 for anyone that is looking for a HDD replacement. I feel that theres not alot i can say about a HDD apart from it works well.
