Summary: I bought this Hard Drive for my roommates 120gb Ps3 slim for Christmas. I did a ton of research on different Hard drive before settling on this one. I had no issues installing or formatting this using just the ps3. Drive is quite and seems to run a little bit cooler then the stock 120gb we replaced. I have noticed slightly faster load times but this may be due to the old 120gb being full and the new 500gb being mostly empty.
Summary: It works well, very easy to install (this might change depending on your laptop). It replaced my OEM HD (which sucked! Lenovo Ideapad's HD died twice in two years - literally died) for a fraction of the cost with same features.
