A decent replacement hard drive for my PS3, not a laptop

 

Works great in my PS3.

I have ordered many hard drives from Samsung, and for the longest time, they were my favorite hard drive manufacturer. However, I was a little saddened when I had heard Samsung's HDD unit, had been purchased by Seagate (back in 04/2011) ; I went...

I'm sure this would have worked fine, if I was installing from a Windows Recovery Disc. Not sure why it didn't play nicely with a Windows Recovery Partition. Dropped 2 eggs, because of these issues

WD My Passport Essential 250 GB 2.5" External Hard Drive

 

Great size and is very easy to use. Just plug the USB cord in and go to work. I chose to buy it from Buy.com because of low price and past history of ordering from them.
