[QUOTE="AaronSOLDIER, post: 6196590]Just don't buy any model of the phat unless its a 60GB and unless you care about BC. Go for the latest slim for most reliability for the smallest and least power consumption parts. Don't buy used hardware either because a lot of people trade them in when they know they're about to break.[/QUOTE]
Well that's in line with what I was thinking. I have a 2nd slim PS3 some I'm not necessarily under the gun to get a new one, persay, but I do like having a 2nd one to take with my ro friend's houses and game night and stuff. I'm willing to go with a used unit I just don't want to spend much more than $100 with the PS4 being so close. That said I also don't want to get a model that's likely to have the same flaw as the one I already have.
