Good Drive

Anthony W., Newegg
15 May 2012
  • Pros: Half a Terabyte, I can run Win7 plus 3 other of my favorite linux distros and still have ample room for storage. 4k sector manual partition went without a hitch. No noticeable speed loss compared to the WD Scorpio Black HD. Runs a tad cooler than Scorpio. Very economically priced.
  • Cons: Still runs too hot.

Great product but poor packaging!!

Mac, Amazon
5 February 2014
  • Summary: I ordered this disk and I was horrified when I seen when the postman had just dropped it through the post box as it just came in one of Amazons cardboard packaging for books. Not one mention of a fragile package or anything!! Thankfully it seems to be working fine...

Perfect for ps3 super slim

Mike, Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: Great for anyone wanting a bigger drive for the ps3 super slim. Ultra quiet and easy to install. The ps3 presents an option to copy across data the moment it's turned on, making it even easier. Games are reasonably quick to install as well. My only complaint is that you only get 465mb of storage space on the ps3, some of it due to the ps3 and some of it due to the way hard drive sizes are calculated, so you never get the full size advertised.

Good quality HDD, quiet and reliable

Mr Baz, Amazon

  • Summary: I've no complaints with this hard drive it's got decent performance, quiet with little to no notable vibration. Ideal as a replacement drive and the price is quite reasonable. However on testing the Hitachi 7K1000 2.5" 7200rpm drive edges it out for pure speed (this ia a 5400rpm drive) The Hitachi has a bigger 32mb buffer and faster spindle speed yet still very quiet.

Hard Drive

  • Summary: Arrived on time, bought with Sony Mounting Bracket for PS3 - unfortunately, when buying PS3 I bought small memory as I did not realise it was different from previously owned x-box and that size does matter! Easily changed by one of the IT guys at work. One happy son, who can download to his hearts content.
