Will this 500GB HDD install into a Sony PS3 unit?
Posted on Saturday 16th June 2012 at 09:36
Can the drive also be used in a desktop PC that uses 3.5" drives? Is an adaptor required? Couldm the drive be used as an external data storage disk and it there any advantage in that? Or is it more suitable for permanent installation?

This drive is 2.5", so you would need an adaptor. The momentus drives cache the regularly used data in the flash portion of the drive for faster access, generally this ends up being operating system and key programs. If using as an external drive you would likely not see this benefit. -Danlevan

From the information I have available this your laptop takes a SATA connection so this drive would indeed be suitable.

SSDs are still a fairly new technology, so their overall life is still something we can't say for certain. You can defrag a Momentus XT and it won't break it. The way the SSD portion works is that it refers to hard drive sectors, so when you defrag these will change and it'll take the drive a little while to find the commonly used sectors again for the performance boost. -Danlevan

will this work in the above laptop? it has a shockingly slow 5400rpm drive.
Also do you have and 2.5inch USB 3.0 hard drive encloses?

I've seen this exact model at a much cheaper price than your offer. I thought you guys were the cheapest when it came to computer hardware.

Hard drive pricing is still in fluctuation due to the supply issues caused by the Thailand floods. The price we have for these drives is the cheapest we are able to do them at this time, and I note that the site you linked currently have no stock so could well increase in price when they stock them again.

Do you have to format this drive before first use?
Posted on Tuesday 20th December 2011 at 09:01
Yes, you will need to format this drive before use. If you are installing Windows onto it, this will be part of the installation procedure.

Do you stock an external sata/usb lead to use this hdd externally for data,cloning?
Posted on Saturday 17th December 2011 at 13:38
To use this drive externally you would need to use either a dock or enclosure, such as HDD3385 or HDD3326.

Hi,Is this drive compatable with my Sony AW41/ZFB laptop?
Posted on Monday 12th December 2011 at 11:32
If your laptop takes a standard SATA hard drive this will be compatible, however I am not able to find this information regarding your unit.
