5 out of 5 eggsGreat PS3 Upgrade

Pros: Great drive for a PS3 upgrade. The swap took like 5 minutes once the backup was finished.

Cons: No cons yet

Other Thoughts: Don't be afraid of upgrading your PS3 hard drive. 1 panel, 5 screws, slide tray out and in, done. Its that simple.

3 out of 5 eggsOEM Part?

Pros: Very Fast Shipping, Cheap and fairly good performance.

Cons: The sound while spinning is much larger than the 160G Scorpio Blue that came with my Thinkpad. Even through They had same Firmware and hardware version. And setting AAM to 128 does not reduce noise. It's really annoying because my Laptop was very quiet. I bought 5400 RPM drive just for the sake of low noise!

Other Thoughts: What I got is a Lenovo OEM part. It even has a thinkpad P/N on it. I am thinking it's produced for Lenovo, but Lenovo finally decided not to buy, that's why it ended up here. Good thing is when I checked on WD's website the warranty seemed to be solid(Standard 4 years). Really hope it's not a refurbished unit and just dead after a year. Next time I'll spend a few more bucks and buy a retail one!

5 out of 5 eggsThe new 360 drive

Pros: cheap, 250GB, compatible with Xbox 360 HDDHACKR, FUTUREPROOF

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is the new HDD to get for all of the hddhackr users- It can be 120GB for now, but when the new "official" 250 GB Xbox 360 HDD hits very soon, you are still covered!!!

2 out of 5 eggsMacbook won't recognize the HDD

Pros: Fast, Quiet, Lots of space.

Cons: My 2007 basic 13' Macbook won't recognize the HDD when I plug it into the internal SATA connector, take it out, put it back, take it out again, but it back in over and over, and still won't recognize it. then I put it into this external HDD enclosure I bought for my old 80 GB Seagate Momentus HDD, and BAM! works perfectly. partitioned it and installed Mac OS X without a hitch. So I'm relieved and very frustrated at this point. so I plug my old HDD back into my laptop's internal slot, and BAM! recognizes it emediately, ooooookkkkkk, there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with my laptop's internal SATA connector, so I take it out and put the new WD HDD in, aaannnddd BAM! nothing again, over and over. still nothing, I check all the pins on the HDD and on the laptop, nothing seems bent or missing. so I'm stumped at this point completely, it just doesn't make sense. so I've been my running my comp with the new HDD in the external case, and it runs really really good right now.

Other Thoughts: It's a great HDD, but it would be really neat to actually have it in my comp, instead of just floating around in this case I bought primarily to use as a backup HDD.
I don't know if it's because it's a WD and not a SeaGate, which is my OEM HDD. that would be pretty annoying if that was the case.
