Discontinued

Description

Samsung's Spinpoint M7 model is designed for high-end mobile computing applications requiring greater shock resistance without a compromise in performance. An optimized system-on-chip controller reduces the power consumption in both seek and idle modes to the lowest level among comparable drives.

The Spinpoint M7 utilizes Samsung's proprietary SilentSeek and NoiseGuard technologies to minimize noise-levels during drive operation. The halogen-free drive complies with the European Union's directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS).

Ordered this as a replacement drive for a HP Pavilion G6 laptop at around 330pm and it arrived around lunchtime next day. Packaged really well so no worries about damage in transit. Fitted to laptop and restored system files no problem.

Bought this to fit into an 'Omata' external HD case. Works a treat. Cannot hear any noise and only a slight vibration when operating.
Highly recommended.

As above I got this to replace 40GB PS3 hard drive. no problems noticed yet and very simple to swap the drives and get setup. I'm now confident that I can fully install new games for a few years to come without many worries!

This was a bargain 4 tha capacity stated. Bought this specifically 2 upgrade my 80GB ps3 2 a whoppin' 595GB!! However, regardless of how many youtube clips u find, they never say anything about a solution to 'wrong hard drive type' errors, which is exactly what i got after installation of this drive. The problem is, this hdd is SATA 300; a ps3 hdd must b SATA 150. There are jumper pins on this hdd 2 force SATA 150 configuration. unfortunately, it doesn't come with jumpers & i only had jumper covers 4 a 3.5" drive, which don't fit 2.5" drives :(
The solution to this is 2 go 2 tha ps3 website & download tha latest update onto a flash drive (or other FAT32 formatted external drive) then bring up tha options screen on ps3 (holding tha ps3 power button down 2 hear 3 beeps, then 2 beeps, etc). Selecting "update" from tha menu will format & therefore accept this hdd (without jumpers set 2 SATA 150). From tha other reviews on here, some may not have this problem, but its worth tha price!! :)

I bought this drive as the third replacement drive for my PS3. I've upped my drive from 40GB to 80GB then 250GB and finally to 650GB. However, I've not been impressed with the read/write speed of this drive whatsoever. The PS3 now takes over 2 mins to boot up and writing movies to the system is a joke. Not impressed at all
