I'm pretty sure it's fine but I might as well ask aswel...

Does this look like a decent drive for a PS3

[By that I mean, would it work.]

Please go here, or Tiger Direct (Same Company basically)...

Do NOT buy your Hard Drive from Best-Buy unless it's an amazing close out deal..

Best-Buy = Bending you over and inserting it sideways..

I must say for Video Cards Best Buy can be very cheap... My last 2 cards I got from Best-Buy on crazy sales..

I have this installed on my ps3 as well and it works great, i have around 50 movies and a few games on the harddrive and still have a little under 200gb of free space. A must have for people who want to buy movies from the playstation store. ((if you plan on installing this or any other hard drive in a ps3, be sure to have the current ps3 firmware on a thumbdrive plugged into the console to formate the hard drive))

Bought this drive to put in my PS3... worked awesome! Liked it so much bought a second to upgrade my laptop (gotta love 320 GBs!) Awesome drive, amazing price! What else can I say? Hitachi brand name quality, buy one today and you won't be disappointed. I'd give it 6 stars out of five if I could.

I bought this to switch out my PS3 hard drive with. It has been working really well and I've had no problem with it after having it on for prolonged amount of time.

16MB Cache is good (Standard is 8MB), but im not sure about 7200rpm, It could overheat. 5400 rpm is a safe bet.

you can find some much cheaper go to amazon.com
