Pros: Compact. Fairly quiet, except for playing movies. Some 55 games per year available from PS+ for as little as $40 per 15 months, normally $50 per 12 months; most of these games are for PS3. PS+ makes this a great time to enter this generation if you somehow skipped it. Lots of de facto exclusives from Japanese game studios are on this system.
Various miscellaneous nice features, such as the ability to go forward or backward ten seconds in youtube videos using the controller triggers.
No reliability problems.
Cons: User interface is slow. Accessing the online store is slow, but the web version of the store is available via the PC. The web browser crashes too often, and this usually causes the system to want a database rebuild (takes from 5 minutes to 5 hours).
Overall Review: Exceptional Newegg service. It shipped from New Jersey. I picked free shipping, which nicely takes 3 days usually. This time there was a hurricane, and it shipped 2 days late. Newegg sent it by overnight for free.
Pros: New Egg does it again.! Super fast processing and shipping. Arrived in three days, excellent packaging, included the games in the box to save seperate shipping, everything sealed in the factory cartons.
Overall Review: This is the system my wife decided on and ordered it Monday and she is on line playing Wednesday at lunch !! Thank you Neww Egg for doing it again !!!
Pros: A great bundle for the price. Game is essentially free with the purchase of the system, plus the 30-day PSN+ card. I used that to get Little Big Planet 2 for free (Although only free while PSN+ member).
System itself is sleek, small, lightweight, gets warm but not toasty after hours of game play. I enjoy the top-load disc system, although I hear many place their PS3's with front-load in a specific manner in their entertainment centers, thus causing an issue if they upgrade to this. Not really an issue, just fix the entertainment center!
Cons: None yet!
Pros: 500Gb of storage space for the price of 320Gb, plus a free copy of Assassin's Creed 3 and a 30-day trial membership for PlayStation Plus! New design takes up less space than ever, and has a slide tray at the top for loading discs rather than the front-load system on older models.
Cons: Newegg list the dimensions as equal to the previous PS3 Slim's dimensions when in fact, this one is much smaller than its predecessor. This is only a con because I just bought a cooler for my older PS3 slim and, according to the specs listed on Newegg, it should have been able to work but it didn't. Actual dimensions are as follows: 11.5" W x 9" L x 2.25" H (at maximum point).
Overall Review: Actual dimensions are as follows: 11.5" W x 9" L x 2.25" H (at maximum point).
*Note on HDD space calculation from the actual box:
"Hard disk capacity calculated using base 10 mathematics (1Gb = 1,000,000,000 bytes). System software calculates capacity using binary mathematics (1Gb = 1,073,741,824 bytes), which will display lower capacity and free space." In addition, "A portion of the hard disk capacity is reserved for use in connection with system administration, maintenance, and additional options. As a result, the availability of hard disk capacity may vary." (That is for the inevitable complaints of it not being exactly 500Gb ;) which should almost be common knowledge by now!)
I waited forever to get this one, but for the price, it was worth it! Hurricane Sandy messed up the shipping, but newegg was nice enough to upgrade me from 3-day to next day because of the delays. I am actually shocked that it made it here when it did since it came from New Jersey! Kudos to the guys and gals at both Newegg and UPS for an absolutely excellent job!
Pros: bought this bundle for the wife to have something to play while she waits for me to get her a computer, and it keeps her entertained.
Cons: no touch buttons, no back usb slots, no ability to replace hard drive without ripping ps3 open, no otherOS, and no backwards compatability (because sony wants you to buy your old games AGAIN).
doesnt cook me bacon or heat tea.
Overall Review: just some design flaws/ bad moves (imo) by playstation. nothing that is a dealbreaker though.
Pros: Quality system like the top loading tray but the cover seems a little weak. Overall enjoy the system as my second PlayStation. Assassin's Creed III was a bonus.
Slim design fits well on my limited dresser space.
Cons: Tray cover seems a little weak and tray release isn't as nice as my original playstation
Pros: I am very happy with PS3 how is able to play my movies and the games. The hard drive for 500 GB is good able to meet my up loads and down loads.
Pros: works perfect no complaints about the system!
Cons: the 30 free playstation plus package was out of date so it was not useable.
