For the price, as long as it works I don't care. Some people want a steak for the price of a cheeseburger. I put this bad boy in my PS3 and it has been running perfectly for 4 months so far. Great deal and a great way to add a ton of space to your PS3 (I was running with 20 GB until this drive). Thanks buy.com for another excellent deal/product. You might want to consider selling boxes of tissues (retail, of course) for these OEM whiners.

-Dave S. quote

Got this once my MacBook Pro went out of warranty and the original 100Gb drive became impossibly small. I found this to be the lowest recent price on a 300+ gig drive (I got it for $164, lower than the present price as of March 30 2008). Drive arrived quickly even on the free ground shipping and the replacement was quite simple for a MacBook Pro (the MacBooks are dirt easy, there's no reason not to put this drive in if you own a MB). It runs quieter, appears to spin up faster, performs faster, and generates less heat than the original Fujitsu 100Gb. Remember that this drive is SATA, so do not order it if your laptop uses a PATA (like Apple iBooks and PowerBooks). All i could ask for more would have been for this beast to be 7200rpm. Wait a year or two and it will be.

Features
Massive capacity - Whether they are in an external drive or a notebook computer, WD Scorpio Blue SATA drives are available in capacities up to 500 GB and offer the most available capacity for space-hungry operating systems, like Windows Vista®, with plenty of room left over for photos, music, and video.
Quiet - In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD’s exclusive WhisperDrive™ combines state-of-the-art seeking algorithms to yield one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market. These algorithms also optimize the way a drive seeks for data, which significantly improves power consumption. So now silence (and longer battery life) is golden.
Reliable and rugged - WD's ShockGuard™ technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks. WD's SecurePark™ parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up, spin down, and when the drive is off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface resulting in improved long-term reliability due to less head wear, and improved non-operational shock tolerance.
Fast and efficient - With 5400 RPM spin speed and 12 ms access time and up to 3 Gb/s SATA interface speed, even the most demanding customer will appreciate the performance achieved by WD Scorpio Blue drives.
Tested for compatibility - We perform tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab™ and Mobile Compatibility Lab to give our customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems.
