Seems to have issues not experienced in the older "fat" models.
Pros: I still fully feel like this is the better console on the market as far as gaming graphics and UPnP / DLNA support (If you watch streaming media). Its also a great price point for a home Blue Ray movie player. In all is is a great all around compliment for your home media / entertainment center and I love it in general.
Cons: I have recently been one of the fortunate individuals that has received the Yellow Light of Death on one of the original "Fat" Ps3's. (Re-flow didn't fix) In comparison of the original "Fat" Ps3's I feel this version is a bit weak. I am not just referring to the advertised short comings, ie, the lack of backwards compatibility for Ps2 games and the lack of a multi-card reader.
Other Thoughts: I am only rating this against the older style "Fat" ps3 systems and am a little shocked of its short comings. I also own several other consoles so I am trying not to be biased. By choice, I prefer the Ps3 as a more all around solution to home entertainment and feel like this model could have been done better.

A great console for the Decade
Pros: - The cheapest Blue Ray player so far that I've seen.
Cons: - It's quite secure now (asks password when purchasing) than what it was a few years ago, but probably still has holes in it.
Other Thoughts: - I used to warn the PS3 community and it's developers back in 2008 of the unsecured way the PS3 handles user information. Any person in the family can just "Login" to your account, if you have the password saved, and purchase anything they like at any amount. If you don't save your password, you'll have to type it all the time, and if you don't have a keyboard (just using the on-screen keys with your Controller), everybody can see what your account password is as you move the highlight box on each letters. I suggested to fix security holes, they didn't listen. And then ANONYMOUS hacked Sony because of the poorly stored passwords of ALL PSN users in the world on their database (TEXT files! Imagine that?). Anonymous then, posted all User accounts and passwords publicly.
