  • Toshiba's advanced servo techniques and mechanical design minimizes drive acoustics, making them as silent as possible during operation

Worked flawlessly to upgrade the HDD in my PS3
Took quite awhile for the PS3 to format it, but now I have plenty of space for all the free PS+ games that are offered by Sony.

PS3 drive upgrade it worked great. With no problems. Easy install was a prefect fit. When you upgrade your PS3

Received 2 units in a week [thanks Amazon Prime] and they both started clicking shortly after being connected. I give up on the Toshiba HDD's [great laptops though]. I just ordered a WD, hoping for better results.

I had a Seagate Momentus SSD in my MacBook Pro, it lasted one year. Then failed miserably. this has replaced it, I lost some seriously fast startup and shutdown times, but that is really it. This drive gets a workout, and performs great.

I bought this hard drive for my sisters husband to replace the stock one in his PS4. Loads times and everything are no different than before but it gives him much more room for games. Games now a days are anywhere between 30-60 gigabytes per game and that fills up the stock 500gb drive in no time. If you are looking for an upgrade for your PS4 or even just your laptop or desktop computer this will fit you perfectly. No problems whatsoever.

The harddrive in my Toshiba laptop starting having some really bad issues that could not be fixed by chkdsk /f. I ordered this item with my fingers crossed. It arrived in a separate box. It was in a static-guard package and surrounded by bubble wrap within a plastic case that had balloon packing to hold it steady inside the cardboard shipping container.

WOW, what a change to previous harddrives from Amazon.

I slipped the drive into its compartment on the underside of the laptop. Applied the screws to hold the drive in the adapter and the compartment. Put the cover in place and then began the rebuild process.

The "rescue" CD was put into the CD/DVD drive. The harddrive with the OS image and backup was plugged into the USB port. The moment of reality commenced. The drive was good!

The computer was restored. The original laptop drive was 400gb. This drive provided another 100gb to store more "precious?" crap. Now the laptop computer is again operational!

This is a good drive. The price was excellent. I think it is a very good deal!

Purchased several of these drives and entering the serial number into Toshiba's warranty checker results in a "Warranty could not be determined for this serial number" message. This model should have a 3 year warranty.

This hard drive is fast (despite running at just 5400 rpm). It is an advanced format drive and I found out the hard way that you cannot install Windows XP on it because the OS is so old that it does not recognize the new set up for the first boot sector. It works fine in Windows 7 and Linux. I am using Win 7 Professional (first primary partition) and Slackware64 ver 14.1 in another partition. I bought the drive because my laptop's original 160 GB hard drive is getting smaller and smaller with the space-hungry applications coming out these days demand more space. One word of caution: don't count on Toshiba to answer your questions. I posted a question about the hard drive on the Toshiba website and still have not heard from them; I don't expect to hear from them and hope I never run into warranty issues with the drive. Most likely I will stick with another hard drive manufacturer next time I buy another drive.
