Worst HDD For PS3 DO NOT BUY
on December 29, 2012
Purchased this product for my Slim PS3 back in May of 2012 worked great for about 2-3 months then kept having data loss and corruptions. PS3 kept freezing up, having to restore the file system and when that happened it always told me that I had to format my HDD as well which in turn made me lose all my game saves, pictures, videos and huge library of games. At first I figured it was just the PS3 and not the HDD, so I decided to just format the HDD and try again, but no 2 days later after the format same issues....
I also bought one for my brother for his PS3 and that one has the same issues as well. Freezing, Corrupt File System, Data Loss. So it cannot just be a coincidence, Western Digital doesn't make quality products anymore, DO NOT BUY this HDD at least for PS3. Never buying a Western Digital Product again.
