Western Digital does it again! I just got a new PS3 Slim 2101a model and replaced its simple 120gb hdd with this massive 750gb hdd! Works like a charm!

It formatted to start with 620GB FREE of 698 GB / 750GB HDD

The PS3 will format your HDD no matter what your size HDD, but its all good! Game it up! = )

I previously had a great 320GB HDD Western Digital in my PS3 Phat 60GB launch system, which I am still keeping, but I upgraded to the new PS3 Slim and 750GB!!

This is a really great upgrade for the Sony Playstation 3. I found the upgrade of my Sony Playstation 3 80 GB (PS2 backward compatible) to be quick and painless, once I had this drive. The Playstation (at firmware level 3.6) accepts the drive without any issues and the performance is as good as an original PS3 drive. PLEASE NOTE: Even putting in a SSD or 7200 RPM HDD does not speed up the Sony Playstation 3 hard drive access. The Sony PS3 system HDD speed limitation is not the drive.

Some notes about upgrading the Sony Playstation 3:

1) The drive bay for a PS3 is 9.5 mm tall. Originally, I purchased the 1 TB version of this drive based upon the specifications found on Amazon.com. The Amazon.com website says the 1 TB drive is 1/6 of an inch tall. In reality, it is 12.5 mm or around 7/16 to 1/2 inch tall. The drive bay is a good 3 mm smaller in size, so the 1 TB drive won't fit.

You should note, at the time I bought this drive the Amazon.com description / specification for this drive lists the height as 1/8 of an inch, which is NOT correct. This drive is 9.5mm tall according to my measurements, as well as the Western Digital product description page.

2) You will find instructions on the Internet (in multiple locations -- even the Sony Playstation forums) on how to upgrade the Sony Playstation 3 hard drive. Some useful pointers, though are:

A) Before backing up the system, make sure you're at the latest and greatest firmware level. OK, you don't need the latest, but you will need at least level 2.4 (as it contains updates for drives over 40 GB). I upgraded at level 3.6. NOTE: The operating system is not on the hard drive, but in the memory of the PS3.

B) Backing up the system requires a FAT32 formatted device.

This was a replacement drive for a 320GB 7400 RPM Seagate. A couple of things that will be important to others:
* The drive is silent, it is as quiet or quieter than the Seagate
* I cannot provide an exact measurement yet, but battery life is noticeably longer. I am estimating 10-15% even with the larger capacity. (Probably because of advances in technology as well as the lower 5400 RPM)
* The ADF formatting provides considerably more usable space. It is the first time in a decade where I am left with nearly the stated drive capacity after I have formatted the drive.
* Despite the lower RPM and smaller cache of the WD drive vs. the Seagate, I am not experiencing slower access, application start-up or data response.
* It fits easily into a 17" Unibody MacBook Pro. it is actually ever so slightly shorter
* If you are installing it in a Mac with SnowLeapard (10.6.x) and TimeMachine, you will want to install a fresh system and then import preferences, apps and data using the TimeMachine option. Trying to restore directly without installing a fresh system results in failure, I believe this is because of the new ADF formatting of the drive.

The Seagate 320GB was a quick reliable drive, but I filled it to capacity within a year.

I just put one of these into my MacBook Pro mid 2008 model that requires 9.5mm max height drive and it works perfectly. Went from 250MB to 750MB over night. I bought an enclosure for it (Acomdata USB 2.0 2.5-Inch SATA Hard Disk Enclosure HDEXXUP-240-BLK) and used it as an external drive first. With my old 250MB still inside of my MBP and my new 750MB connected as an external USB, I've used disk utility to format my 750MB drive first (Mac OS extended - Journaled). Then I used Disk Utility 'Restore' option to copy my old 250MB disc to my 750MB external disc (took about 7hrs for 230MB of data). After that, I restarted my MBP while holding down an option key. This allowed me to select the drive from which I wanted to boot up from. I selected my external 750MB drive to see if I can boot from it and to see if my new drive is an exact image of my old 250MB. I wanted to verify it, before I went into the next step of swapping my internal 250MB drive with this new 750MB one. As predicated, the 750MB external drive had a perfect image of my still internal 250MB drive.

The next step was to swap the drives. There are many videos out there that show you exactly how to do it, so the actual process of replacing the old drive with the new one was easy. The fist restart after the swap didn't go so well since the internal disk was not recognized. I had to use my Leopard installation disk to get to the disk utility again and run the 'verify disk" option (hold the option key while the Leopard DVD is in the CD/DVD drive and then after selecting "English" option, don't go through a full restart, just get to the utility option and select the "disk utility" from the top pull down menu).
