  huge storage for my ps3 fat 40gb

| | See all vertman's reviews (2)

well what can i say, was really dubious about tinkering with my beloved ps3 as im not all that savvy with computing stuff,but i only had a 40 gb hard drive so was constantly deleting things like demos and music, so i thought lets give it a go.but if i was going to upgrade then i might as well go big,hence the 640gb.installing was a breeze,i just followed one of the many tutorial vids on youtube.just used a 16gb usb stick to back up my files from ps3 after i deleted most of the stuff on it.took about 30 mins to back up.replaced the drive then restored files back onto ps3.....job done....results after 2 days heavy use are good,drive is just as quiet as before with NO cluncking or grinding noises,isnt over heating(ps3 cool to touch).so im mega happy with my huge amount of storage and the price for such a big upgrade.buy buy buy

i bought this to boost my memory space for music and movies, and it is a BRILLIANT buy!!, the minor problem is that ps3 will not automactically recognise it, beacuse it is a blank drive..DON'T WORRY, all you got to do is on a pen drive, download the system software (with the latest software from PS website) and put it into the pen drive and connect it to the PS3, then follow the instructions on screen!!

I've had a similar problem with my standard 120GB HD, but my good friend has already upgraded 2 the 640GB HD and I am well impressed with how it performs so I've orderd the same but it's out of god DAMN stock. I suppose it just goes 2 show how good this HD is, hope it comes in soon

I have an original PS3 60GB. The HD now full put me in the search for another HD. I picked the Samsung 640GB over the others. Backed up my system to my external drive swaped the HD in the PS3 (This was very easy. Tip use a quality philips scewdriver) Switched system on re installed from saved system settings which takes over an hour. All done HD very quite and me very happy. 10/10 For the HD samsung.
