Top Customer Reviews
Does it work? Yes. It allows you to install games and applications on it.
Does it work well? Not at all. I first noticed the horrible lag and stuttering in Ninja Gaiden Sigma and then again in MGS4 and Wipeout HD. I'd imagine any game that is going to make frequent reads from the hard drive is going to be noticeably slow and sluggish.
I feel dumb knowing that I stopped my research on replacement drives for the PS3 with the reviews on Amazon. Had I searched a little more I would have found that 4k cluster drives became mainstream in 2011 and finding a legacy 512b drive is a little tougher. I would have also found that the Ps3 doesn't play well with Western Digital 4k drives.
In the mean time I've ordered a WD 320GB Black series 7200rpm drive that is not stricken with the "advanced format" branding of the one I am reviewing here.
I bought this Hard drive, got it in 1 day from amazon, I took out the old hard drive and re installed windows 7 on the Toshiba Laptop and about an hour later it was back up and running like new, my brother is happy he did not go and spend $500 for a new laptop. I noticed this Hard drive is really really quiet with a speedy performance. 5 Stars!!
