Pros: plug n play recognize USB 2,3 immediately
Pros: No other game shows off PS3's graphic engine better then FFXIII. Eat your heart out XBox owners. Landscape is as stunning as Avatar, close up shots of character shows their frackles too. Simply amazing. Gameplay requires a lot more focus then previous FF series; which is a pro or con depending on your taste.
Cons: Too linear. I played for approx 30 hrs; see no alternative to go thru the game any other way. I guess because the entire game incorporate all the fancy cut scene. Not exactly what I expect for FF series or any type of rpg. I would rather have different outcome when wandering around the "world".
Overall Review: IMHO, gameplay peaks at FFX. Graphics is simply hand down the best of all PS3 games, topping uncharted 2, COD5, MGS4.
Pros: Exact same model as the original 60gb PS3 harddrive. This is my first time installing a new hard drive to my PS3; following u-tube video as guideline. Took total of 2 hours including backup & re-input. Easy task for anyone at all. No difference in performance speed and noise wise.
Cons: one instance for PS3 to freeze during start up. Error message for un-recognize hard drive. I follow another reviewer's quick fix method of power down then up. All is well. Have not happen again for more than 3 weeks. Crossing my finger.
Overall Review: Highly recommended for anyone trying to do the same upgrade. Cheap and simple, nothing to it.
