PS3 Consoles
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Amazing 11/24/2011

This review is from: PS3 Consoles

Pros: Awesome, uncompressed sound for all your music and games - you can hear crystal clear HDMI sound coming through if you have good speakers, and they're so worth it if you have a PS3. There are also a ton of great exclusives, this is the right time to jump into this hardware cycle because there are so many games, but the PS4 is still a ways off. Great time to be a gamer. PSN is also free.

Cons: Backwards compatibility removed, but that's less a con, because it increased the stability and performance in the slim model.

Other Thoughts: Buy it if you're deciding between 360 and PS3, unless your goal is to play online on xbox with friends, because xbox wins for multiplayer support, and for co op games. PS3 is the clear winner in multimedia capability, though.

ASUS VW246H Glossy Black 24

Pros: It's put up with my abuse for about a year and a half without flinching. I use the heck out of this thing every day, whether on PS3 or just my computer. It's got an HDMI-in and output speaker jack for crystal clear lossless HDMI audio from my PS3 to my speakers, and this makes it pretty much the perfect combo TV/monitor for this college kid's entertainment system. It's a great junction for whatever you want to plug into it, be it console, desktop, or laptop. And Blu-ray images are flawless, because it also happens to be 1080p.

Cons: The stand wobbles, but only when you move it, and the speakers really do suck, don't even consider using them. Get any other audio output and you'll be fine.

Other Thoughts: I have a desktop motherboard, netbook, and monitor through Asus - they're not only reasonably priced products but they're rock solid quality and construction, and I really will have my eye out for them buying any other PC accessories. I was sitting here thinking of how beautiful this monitor is and I just had to post how much I love it.

5 out of 5 eggs Best console option out there 02/08/2011

This review is from: PS3 Consoles

Pros: There are lots and lots of pros for this system, mostly because it's quite strong in lots of areas, and because at this point in the industry it's very cost effective. This is a hell of an entertainment center that can play games, movies, and hold any music and (I think) videos that you want on it. You can even browse if there's something you just have to look up, though the browser is sluggish, and, a great plus for anyone really, you do not have to pay for PSN. It's got great games, and lots of them, really for any genre you're interested in. Also, I already have some lovely exclusives (Ratchet & Clank, GOWIII--- Newegg, why is this title censored? ---, LittleBigPlanet) and I expect it still has life in it for a few more knockouts. Also, Netflix works SO much more smoothly here than on a PC because Silverlight doesn't stick its nose in anywhere. Sad, but true.

Overall, best console option out there right now.

Cons: The graphics do not compare to my uber gaming PC, and any PC gamers looking at PS3 exclusives with envy, know that the graphics will be a downgrade from your PC, ESPECIALLY if you are used to anti-aliasing. On the PS3, get used to a few jaggies, especially on Rockstar games.

Other Thoughts: I'm not going to compare it to the Xbox because I don't have one and because people pretty much know which is for them (PS3 more SP/all around entertainment and Xbox for MP enthusiasts). And because I do not own an Xbox, so take that with a grain of salt.
