Works great, no problems yet after using it regularly for several months now. Suprisingly easy to replace with instructions from iFixit:

This part saved my valuable original 60GB PS3. Very happy about that.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Massive Beeping Disappointment, July 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The things that originally motivated me to purchase this watch were the things that separated this watch from the crowd:

Clean, Smooth Look: the circular and smooth styling was instantly attractive. I really enjoy the uniform styling of the body and the band of the watch, even though this probably means that the band is not replicable. For a watch of this price, it's not really an issue for me.

No "Feature Advertising as Design": So many of the other sport watches in this price range have call-outs all-over the face of their watches describing their various features. Till the end of time, those watches will reminds you that your watch has "Dual Time" or "5 Alarms" every time you glance its way. These are not design features, they are advertisements that remain even after you have purchased their products. This watch blissfully avoids this.

Countdown Timer: a wanted a watch with countdown timer, and this had one.

All of these positives were still true when I got my hands on the watch, but one massive issue became readily and unusually loudly apparent: the beeping. Every beep button beep press beep is beep followed beep by beep a beep beep. This beep feature beep can beep not beep be beep disabled beep. Every beep mode beep change beep. Every beep number beep when beep changing beep number beep values. You beep want beep to beep set beep the beep timer beep for 20 beep minutes? Well beep, you beep are beep going beep to beep hear beep the beep beep beep 23 beep times beep.

Fortunately, unlike the watch, I can disable the beeps in this review. If you work in a office with other hearing-enabled humans, this is going to annoy them, fast. You will not be able to use this watch in any meeting situations. Or weddings. Or movies. Or nearly any situation where other humans gather in peace and diplomacy. It would be more acceptable if the beeping wasn't much louder than other watches I have had experience with. This beeping is the kind that cannot be ignored.

After being so encouraged about the aforementioned features, to have such a simple no-brain feature bring it all to naught is massively disappointing. I returned this watch, sadly.
