I bought it for my PS3
wanted to upgrade my 160GB HDD

received it in my mailbox, 2 minutes later i had a 1TB PS3 at my disposal

If you're looking to buy for a PS3, I truly recommend this (a worthy purchase)

**UPDATED AFTER A YEAR OF USE**

Coming in at around a hundred bucks, this new drive is definitely a contender in the realm of 1TB notebook drives, and so far is getting rave reviews on the internet. I don't like to buy into hype however, so I decided to buy one and take it for a test spin (pun intended). I normally buy everything off of Amazon, but for this drive I had to venture elsewhere (sadly).

MISC INFORMATION:
Backed by an industry-standard 3-year limited warranty.
Average Seek Time: 12 ms
Operating Temperature: 5° F to 131 ° F
Liner shock (operating): 325 G
Liner shock (non-operating): 1000G
Typical Read/Write Draw: 2.5W

DESIGN
First thing I want to talk about is the design. I believe this is the only 2.5" hard-drive on the market that is 9.5mm in height (as of 05/2011), rather than the usual 12mm. Now this won't make a huge difference for most people, but for those who want more storage in their ultra-slim laptop, or for people like me who wanted to add some storage to an Apple laptop via an optical driver adapter, this is the hard-drive to go with. Those extra 2.5mm can mean the difference between success and failure. Apart from that, this is your standard laptop drive. I must admit it is quiet, I can barely hear it over my laptop fan, even while seeking/powering up. The noise guard technology simply works.

SPEED
In my opinion, this is not the ideal drive for a main OS. At 5400RPM and 8MB of cache, you are looking at the lower end of the spectrum as far as drives go.

I purchased this drive elsewhere because amazon would not ship it to Hawaii.

Originally I wasn't sure about using it in my macbook pro because of something that the other reviewer said: "If you are purchasing this for an OS drive, and the 8MB of cache wasn't a warning sign, then you are on your own. At 5400RPM and 8MB of cache, you really shouldn't be using this for an OS drive, or even as a secondary application drive."

I am pleased to report that the above statement is not true. Originally, my 2011 macbook pro came with 320GB 5400 rpm drive. Apple considers them good enough to be included as standard. I installed this Samsung drive in my macbook and it works even better than the one that it came with from Apple. It definitely feels much faster than the Apple's 320GB drive. Later on I came across some benchmarks that someone posted online of the Samsung drive, and they were the best in class and even exceeded some 7200 rpm drives' benchmarks. My point is if you are considering using this drive as your primary mac os drive, it is a good choice. Don't listen to this other reviewer. My personal plan is: use this Samsung 1TB as a primary OS drive until the prices for Solid State Drives (SSD's) drop, and then install an SSD in addition to this. SSD will be my primary OS drive and I will use this nice Samsung drive for "deep storage."

Some other things that I wanted to point out. The drive is very quiet. In fact, it is silent. I don't hear it working. I've heard that some 7200 rpm drives are audible. This one is not. If you appreciate silence, this is a drive for you.

I monitor temperature using iStat and it runs nice and cool.

I used it for over a months now and I don't have any complaints.

I wanted to upgrade my 120 gb PS3 (yes, that's a PS3 slim), and bought this hard drive based on the few reviews that stated that this drive absolutely worked for that purpose. There was a little bit of trouble with rebooting the PS3 after the physical switch, but a quick search on the internet helped me fix the problem. Now I have a crazy amount of space on my PS3 and even though I'll probably never use it all, it is very satisfying to have it.

Working great in my PS3 as a replacement for a 320G drive. Just plan on a couple of days to back up and restore from these large drives.

For all of you who may be wondering how well this drive functions in a PS3, I have been running the Samsung M8 HN-M101MBB 1TB in my console for almost a week now. It acts as a perfect/identical replacement for my Western Digital Scorpio WD3200BEVT 320GB drive (with more space, obviously). I am running this on an original 60GB PS3. After loading up nearly 250GB of data on to the Samsung last week, it appears the drive performs just as good as any stock drive the console comes with. I have noticed that the console runs much more quiet with this drive as opposed to the Scorpio. A great addition for anyone looking to have their PS3 cracked out with a ridiculous amount of free space :)

******************************************
*** HERE'S A SHORT SUMMARY AND SOME SPECS: ***
******************************************

Install and upgrade of this 1Tb drive in my original PS3 80Gig console went super smooth. Restore of original backed-up data did take around 3-hours to complete, but that was probably due to the age and slow speed of my 80Gig external backup drive.

SKILL/EXPERIENCE: I would rate the skill/experience necessary to upgrade the PS3 HDD a 2 out of 5. It may seem daunting to a novice, but in reality, it's a piece of cake and you'll feel so proud of yourself once you do it.

TIME: Project time is about 1-hour total, not including the actual time it takes to backup data from your current HDD and restore your data to your new HDD.

ACTUAL STORAGE SPACE AVAILABLE: After installing and formatting the drive in my PS3, but before restoring my backed up data, there were 898Gigs of 928Gigs of total formatted, usable space available. As expected, like all HDD drives, this one holds less than the full 1TB drive capacity advertised. I was surprised, however, that it needed/used 30GB (928G - 898G) to install the OS and file sytem and recover what it could remember from my accounts and settings before actually restoring any of my backed up data.

ACTUAL DRIVE MANUFACTURER: Drive label says Samsung, but label also says it was manufactured for Samsung by Seagate. So, you are really buying a Seagate drive to Samsung's specs. Label also says my drive was manufactured in 2/2013. Drive comes with standard 3-year warranty.
