Great for PS3 Upgrade,
This review is from: WD Blue 320 GB Mobile Hard Drive, 2.5 Inch, 5400 RPM, SATA II, 8 MB Cache (WD3200BPVT) (Old Model) (Personal Computers)
Just to let Amazon users know, I purchased one of these hard drives with the intention on upgrading my fat 40GB model PS3's hard drive. The hard drive fit into the PS3's bracket and hard drive bay perfectly and works like a charm. If anybody wants to upgrade those tiny PS3 hard drives, the Scorpio Blue 320GB HDD works great.

This hard drive works for PS3 yes... however it does not step down SATA 2 to SATA 1 very well. It also does not support the 512b rate that PS3 uses. This HD pushes out 4MB, which attempts to step down but does so horribly.
I purchased this drive... and all it has caused me was extermely slow loading times on certain games. Avoid this drive.
