    Had to buy a new PS3 last night......

    Naturally when I finally get a game that I am really excited for (Tomb Raider), my damn PS3 decides it does not want to read discs anymore. Seemed to me that this is the best time for me to grab one of those new super slim PS3 consoles. So I grabbed the AC3 500gb bundle for $300. Worked out nice since I only have AC3 on the Wii U.

    Here are my thoughts on this latest model.

    Upon opening the box I immediately notice the difference in size and weight. I also noticed the sliding door on top of the console wobbles and makes noise when moving the console around. Not a big deal since the console should not be touched once it is all hooked up.

    The door itself is flimbsy and does not feel very solid. It opens on its own when you press the eject button. You have to manually slide the door to close it though.

    Using WiFi, I tested the download speed on this new slim PS3 vs my 80gb original model.

    Super Slim = 9.7Mbs
    Phat PS3 = 7.1Mbs

    I do not use WiFi with my consoles anyways, but this is still interesting to know.

    My original phat PS3 had trouble with my Sony Wireless Headset. Many times it would make crackling noises and just could not keep up with the sound being transmitted. The newer slim model has had no problems what so ever.


    I am currently using the Data Transfer tool built in to the PS3. I am transfering about 400gb of data to the new PS3 through the ethernet cable hooked up to both consoles. So far the transfer has been going on for about 10hrs, and is currently at 87% complete.

    That is pretty much all I have to say for now, hope this info was useful to someone out there.

    You could've saved a lot of money by, just getting a blu-ray disc player for like $30. And it's simple to install it.

    Mine is definitely my phat model. The 4 USB ports alone, make it my favorite.

    Would need to find the proper player that would fit my console, then I would have to marry the drive to the PS3 motherboard. No time for all that.

    No matter what race you are or what you look like or your sexuality or where you come from, We are all the same people and we are all bothers & sisters so love each other & don't let anyone tell you any different.

    Remember you can't choose what you are from birth but you can choose what you want to become.

    Just because you haven't seen them doesn't mean they are not there we all got to have something to believe in.

    I really wanted the white PS3, but it was sold out everywhere here. The data transfer is still transferring as we speak. It is taking soooooooooooo long.

    Yes it does. Although I am doing the data transfer from my old PS3 to my new one. It is taking a while, but still faster than downloading and installing over 200 games.

    I helped my friends transfer data to their new PS3 since they didn't have an external HDD. It was summer and if someone ran the microwave or something it would trip the breaker. We had to restart like 3 times. I didn't get out of there until early morning.

    I haven't held a Super Slim in my hands but I've been told it kind of feels cheap. Sucks you other one crapped out on you. But on the bright side you can get back to TR.
