| | See all Spaulding's reviews (56)

I watched you tube vids all showing a simple swop over what they all fail to mention is you need a flash drive before you can format and use backed up external drive data. After wondering what was doing wrong I did however stumble on a solution some games in this case FIFA will put an operating system update so if you cant get drive to work try various games or buy a flash drive

  Awesome Drive....

Delivered quickly, not as easy to install as expected as i needed to get the latest update from sony, copy to a usb drive and boot from that initially. Once that installed the drive formatted as it should and booted normally.

  Fast delivery

I bought this 320Gb (298Gb actually) to replace my original 40Gb Playstation 3 hard drive, I used a tutorial off you tube which helped considerably! The screws are a nightmare to get out of the case & hard drive but you should get there in the end. From start to finish (including backing up saved data and restoring it) it took me about 2.5hrs to complete, which is time well spent for this upgrade. Now, I have no worries about Gran Turismo 5 and its optional 10Gb of room needed to save all data - for 36.99 its a bargain. This is the first time I have used Play.com and was rather impressed by there shipping times, ordered on Thursday & arrived on Tuesday. The package was securely wrapped and had no issues.

If you have an old PS3 40GB this is the answer to your space issues. At this price its a no-brainer, no more space worries after this... with game installs genearlly knocking about 4GB you need spaaaaace on your drive. You may find that your PS3 doesnt recognise the external drive that you have your backup on when you install this new drive - its nothing to do with the drive, its the PS3 firmware - download the latest firmware from the Sony site, stilck it on your external drive, install the firmware and then everything should be just peachy.

  easy harddrive upgrade.

ordered this on monday 30 august got it on thursday 2 sept, so thanks for the quick delivery play. great customer service. just a few words to anybody thinking about upgrading there ps3. i was a bit worried about upgrading my 40gb fat ps3 as i am no tech wiz but there was no need to worry. i just followed videos off you tube and it went like a breeze. i did,nt back up my files or anything like that i just took the old harddrive out put the new one in and formatted the new harddrive and away i went. piece of piss. anything you have bought from the playstation store can be redownloaded. your online name and ip address are stored on the ps3 not the harddrive so when i turned the ps3 back on i just signed in straight away. now i have a 298 gb harddrive and loads of space for all the future games coming out.the ps3 seems faster as well. so if you are considering buying this go ahead you wont be dissapointed. great piece of kit.

Arrived this morning and within 10 minutes was fitted with no instruction and working perfectly. Finally upgraded from my 60gb to the whopping 320gb hard disk, and a fantastic deal for 42 pound. Just remember to use the backup facility before swapping the hard disk, you will need a 32bg + memory stick for this. The only pain is now Ive got to start downloading all my Playstation Store games again now (which might take some time).

I got this two upgrade the memory on my 60gb PS3 because i was having to delete games just to save new ones, the hole thing took all of 5 minutes to fit, all you have to do is make sure the screw driver is the right size to undo the fixing screw for the hard drive and you shouldn't have ant problems

Title says it all bought my 40gb ps3 a couple of years ago and had to keep deleting things cause the hard drive was always full but not anymore! Absolutely unbeatable price unmissable,was dreading installing it but it was a doddle theres a great video on youtube of an american bloke going through the full process it realy is easy just make sure you have the correct screwdrivers.Backing everything up was easy i used my 160gb ipod classic for external storage space and worked perfect,once the new hard drive was installed and formatted i restored everything from my ipod synched my trophies on the psn server and everything was back up and running.At this price you realy cannot go wrong once again play.com produce another great bargain.A couple of things i noticed in other reviews people have had firmware issues when insalling the new hard drive and problems with iplayer freezing but i had neither of these you realy can buy this and install with confidence.Thankyou play.com.
