I have a day one release 60 gig PS3 which I upgraded to a 250 Toshiba that pulled from my MBP 15" a few months ago. Prior to the upgrade I had a YLOD which I repaired and life was good again. I noticed the fan was running louder since that upgrade. Ok still fine. Two months later YLOD again. So I repaired again. Running out of space again I searched for a replacement 500 or 750 for my big black beauty. Being in graphics and using Macs, doing upgrades and the sort I get technology and know the importance of a big data cache. Seeing such a low price on a Hybrid drive I thought I'd give it a go. It's been in for a couple of days now and I have noticed a small speed increase in load times but mainly the SYSTEM RUNS COOLER. The fan runs very quiet now opposed to what speed it ran last week. Always vertical and open spaced around, running Netflix for a while only make the fan go to level 2. ( Level 4, top speed is a leaf blower in you living room)
I highly recommend this drive for someone doing an upgrade. For the 30 dollars more than a standard 5400 rpm drive, it is a little faster, ( the PS3 has a slow data bus) but mainly your system will run cooler potentially saving your PS3 from heat stroke.
BTW. Amazon really needs to learn how package their product better. They put the drive on the very bottom of a large box and covered it in padding on top... essentially leaving a delicate hard drive exposed to damage on the bottom.

I always purchase Seagate drives and have never had one fail. This one is still going strong in a NAS boxPublished on July 20 2013 by G. Baker
Hard drive worked in my MacBook Pro perfectly at a fraction of the cost of an OEM product. Fast with high capcity & no issues with install. This gets five stars.Published on Jan. 11 2013 by Dragul
Didn't feel a major difference. But that may be due to the SSD that I have as well, which obviously would be much faster.Published on Jan. 11 2013 by Chapman Wong
This went in a 3 year old machine with a fresh Windows 7 load. It runs great, with a large performance gain as advertised. Two thumbs up.Published on Sept. 29 2012 by Ken
I installed this on my HP Laptop with 64-bit Windows 7.
It's really fast when it boots and when it shuts down. Read more
I bought this thinking it was a good deal and much cheaper than what I could get it for at other places but the savings are evident in the cheap packaging. Read morePublished on March 28 2012 by sv
