PlayStation 3 40GB System (GameStop Premium Refurbished)
Lasted 5 Months
My old PS3 stopped reading Blue-ray discs. So, when I saw this, I thought I was getting a great deal. But in the end I just wasted my money. At least my old PS3 still plays PSone games, DVDs and downloadable games. This one won't even turn on (YLOD) I'm never buying a refurb again.
DO NOT BUY
I had this 40 g playstation 3 for 2 months before it quit working. Also from the day i got it the fan would turn on high after a few minutes and never turn off. I would not suggest that you purchase this. I mean I wasn't planning on it lasting years, but 2 months. And it couldn't be replaced because it was past the 30 day return time limit.
Within two weeks I got the YLOD and I had only had it on for 30 minutes at the most so I don't know how it overheated. I understand that this won't happen to everyone, but I strongly recommend buying the PS3 Slim without the Super-Loud cooling fan.
Good Console, but save for new
So i bought this 3 days ago and it has stopped working. I brought it back, full refund, but i was still pretty mad about it. I love this system, im going to get a new ps3 and ps4 when the price drops a bit, but unless u want to take a chance on refurbished, save the extra $50 for a new one
I got the game, and it worked fine. About the a week into me having the system, I turned the game on & it came on with no problem. When I went to go online the game turned off by it's self & the red light started blinking. I tried to turn the game on 6 times & it never can on. I got my Marvel Vs. Capcom stuck in the system. When I took the game to the nearest store they wouldn't take it because the game was stuck in the system & told me I had to mail it in
this systeme is good but i recommend ps2 but over all it has good games like gtA's sleeping dogs but i know ps3 games work in ps2
NOT WORTH IT!!!!
I bought this system with a warranty and after a month and a half it gave me the red light (it would turn on for a few seconds,show me a red light, and then shut down) and when I went to use my warranty, the store would not accept it even though I showed my reciept and then they offered me 40$ when I tried to trade it in. DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Console works fine but it came broken on the top (plastic) and with a bunch of scratches. This was suppose to be a gift and won't have time to exchange. Very disappointing.
Be sure to buy the Warranty.
This model of the PS3 system has overheating problems and if this system has been refurbished for an overheating it will, most likely, overheat again. So if you do buy this BE SURE TO BUY THE WARRANTY, it is worth it. Or buy a slim model which doesn't have the overheating problems. However, the newest model, the super slim, has the same over heating issue, so again to save yourself some aggravation buy the warranty.
Best system I have ever had
This system is the best PS3 I've ever owned even though its kind of heavy and bulky but it's worth buying I just have 2 flaws in the system but it really doesn't matter 1) Loud fan but it is not that loud and 2) The screen freezes for like 5 seconds but this happens like 2 or 1 time a day so it doesnt really matter to me but overall I really love this system and its graphics I would recommend this to anyone who loves online play but doesnt want to pay for it. So yeah great system great entertainment at a great price, Thanks gamestop
