    How the 1st PS3 Slim? (Not the Super Slim)

    As some of you know I've had a few Problems with my 60gb PS3 and it shutdown on its own again today, still works but still
    so I've called Sony and they are sending me out a "upgrade" ie the Slim
    now I know I'm losing PS2 BC here and I'm not to happy about it and I do prefer the Fatty but Sony said the Originals are no longer available
    so I was just wondering what you guys think of the Slim(Not super slim) and is there any problems with them I should know of
    Thanks

    I have a regular slim. It's cooler and the fan is a lot quieter than the fatty. However, it's not without it's issues. Whilst the intake doesn't sound like a jet engine, the system does make an irritating high pitch chirping noise (I don't know how else to describe it). You don't notice it so much when playing games but when trying to watch a movie it can grate.

    Also the USB ports aren't easy to get to with the lip overhanging

    I find the Slim is just like the Phat just without the BC, and two less USBs. It does "pop" when they start to heat up but thats apparently just the way they are.

    All in all as someone who bought a phat for BC, Im happy with the slim. (I'll legit cry if my slim dies, I cant go back to that top loader crap)

    The fatty looks like a foreman grill but if youre using it for BC then I can see why you would.

    I've never had PS3 shaped foreman
    They always look like large Disc-Man's (Portable CD Players) so I never got that joke
    Then again I never got the radiator jokes about the PS2
    All in all they all look like the PS2, PS3 just has curves whereas the PS2 was boxed, I kinda expect PS4 will have the same form factor too
    But if the superslim was like the Fat design with slot-loader.......damn that'll be nice piece of kit

    Honestly I see no difference between Slim and the Fat. In a bad way. It literally sounds the same and it's uglier.

    However, I know I have a bad unit because I had another Slim that was super quiet and this one was loud from the beginning.

    I bought the 120GB slim the day it came out and have had no issues.

    I sometimes worry about overheating and too much dust inside though

    Why would you buy a older version? (Other than the BC) why would you despise the slim/super slim? It's just as good as the original. It does the right thing, runs games. Oh and I do think the Super slim is a waste of money.

    I've had Fat for 6 years, I'm attached lol
    And my Fat plays PS2 games which my PS2 don't anymore so I've now got 120+ PS2 games with no method to play
    But I do like the fats design, I like the slim too but its the missing features that bother me, makes no difference
    Anyway any good vertical stands for the Slim?
    I had the 4gamers stand with Blue light and extra USB's for my fat
    Kinda after something similar

    So how did you manage to get Sony to send you a new PS3? The manufacturer warranty is only a year I think.

    Remember they had a continuousplay policy in which they would replace you PS3 within 2 days for 5.99 a month which they axed because people abused it
    I was originally sign up so the service continued
    Its gonna be a refurbished unit but from my experience cosmetically the system is new ie the casing is new with a remanufactured innereds
    I think my only problem with them is that they never took it into their own hands with the Fatty's to use different thermal paste :-/

    Ah so I guess you've paid them more than enough money over the years to pay for another console.

    Tis a gutting feeling when your fatty dies. Mine like yours was on the blink for a long time before it finally died.

    Yeah it sucks but this ain't the first so I'm kinda numb to it, the fatty still works at the mo but I've already lost all my data so I ain't refilling a 640gb HDD was it to die again, rather just get a new system and redownload my stuff from PS+
