is this good for the PS3?

Yes and the drives that sony put in PS3's are seagate.

Anyone had experience of this in a Macbook Pro? I've read a few posts about the 'G-Shock' feature of the drive conflicting with the MBP sudden motion sensor.

I can't see if it's available without the G-Shock option. Will bite their hand off if it is!

Hmmm... looking at the model numbers: think this is the model without the G-Force Protection (= an optional drop sensor) = ST9320421AS

And model ST9320421ASG has the G-Force Protection sensor (?)

Am not 100% sure.

Tempted to get this one for a ThinkPad laptop. Doesn't matter if it has G-Force or not: in case the drive has G-Shock protection I can just uninstall or disable the Shock protection software of the laptop (Thinkvantage Active Protection System).

The manufacturer website says that it is with G-Force Protection™

The manufacturer website says for the Momentus 7200.3 family::
"G-Force Protection™ available", not that is has G-Force

On ]http//ww…o=1 I found:
"If the drive supports G-Force Protection Technology, the model number will end with the letter G."

Hi - If buying specifically for the PS3: does 7200rpm not overheat the PS3? Have heard that the 5400rpm is a better bet, and that the PS3 can only read from the hard drive at a max speed - I am not 100% sure, but I think this drive exceeds it - therefore your paying for features that the PS3 cant use . . . . . . check google for more ..

I read last year that a 7200rpm drive would overheat your PS3 but it has been tested and it wont but it will be slightly warmer, loads of different places have carried out these tests and have said the same. It will however increase your PS3's performance, read here for details or check google ps3fanboy.com/200…ce/

expired.
product sold out (this is a new model, imagine Ebuyer will get new stock soon)

Appears to be showing as in-stock now; although having just gone ahead and proceeded with purchasing it, i'm not so sure, as i've just received a system email saying that the item is out of stock. :?

Admittedly, at time of ordering, it said there was only 3 left in stock, but that amount hasn't altered since purchasing, so maybe the stock-count shown on the website isn't real-time..?
