Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price and design. First off, I had my first fat PS3 from late 2007 to 2015 -- got a good 8 years out of it. Happy with that. (it croaked while I was playing it; had some fun removing the game). __sarcasm__ So, I immediately went and got a brand new one, which happened to be this new 500g slim model. At first, I was wary with the new design, what with the slide-open top. But truly, now I can say that I prefer this design, because with the older fat models, when the console croaks the game is stuck inside the console, with no visible way to remove the game (unless you know the unplug/re-plug trick with finger held on eject button the entire time). But with this new slim model, there's no need for that, as the top simply slides open to remove the game. And hopefully, this new model will last even longer than 8 years, since the new design is to help the system remain cooled. And 500 gigs of hard drive to boot! Well, I'll just say in closing that I like this slim model to the point that six months after I got the new one, I went and bought a 2nd one new, simply to have a *new* spare at a good cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product I bought this before this before this release about a year and half and have been enjoying it with my family. It has perfect gaming experience and never freezes, even after once gamed for 6+ and left it on and still didn't over heat. Magnificent product would recommend to everyone

Rated 2 out of 5 by from These things keep breaking This is the THIRD PS3 I've had to buy. The first one was good - lasted almost three years before it started having problems. Replaced a hard drive, reformatted, and it's still working. The second one, purchased only 4 months ago, has now decided to reboot itself. Sometimes its when we're in the Playstation store, sometimes during a game, but it just freezes, restarts and ruins our day. Tried rebuilding the database, tried reformatting, nope, no good - it's just a dung-heap unit and I'm stuck with it. But my kid has about 60 games for it, so, here I go again, buying another new one. I'd like to rate these higher, but clearly, they're only averaging 50% reliability - and that's just at my house. Not good enough, Sony.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ps3 vs xbox 360 which is better I love everything about the ps3 expect for not reading ps2 game discs. ps3 pros and cons + bluray + free gaming + great triggers for certain games (bo2, wwe, etc) + a wide selection of exclusives - can't have partys - none of the mics I have for the ps3 worked - cant read ps2 discs xbox 360 pros and cons + partys - no bluray - have to pay for gaming + mics work + exclusives and indie games their are the pros and cons for xbox 360 and ps3 both are really good but have their own flaws

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value So I bought this PS3 new last year and I'm glad I did. You can't beat the price of this for 500 GB. I NEVER buy consoles at launch, because they ALWAYS come out with a better version of it within a year or so. It streams all of my apps without crashing, freezing or constant buffering and it's a very quiet system too. I swear this system has one of the best cooling fans ever it hardly heats up at all, even after a three-hour play through. They also announced they will still be supporting PS3 games even through the 2016 season, but that may be it so next year I'll get a PS4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for price. Had the fat ps3 500 gb, this one is just as good. Was worried about the way the game loads from the top, but it seems to be just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why buy used Best price for years to come. Look at the old gen prices for new systems and they're not below $200 even years after release. This seems to be the lowest price we will see for this third gen system. Very quiet, loads of space and nice games for free every month. I have run it for hours on end for 3 months and no problems. Best deal buying new! If going used, you may only get a year or two, I expect 10 years or more with new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd say nobody can beat this deal! 500 gigabytes for only a one-time low price of $219.99 plus tax? You should hurry and get yours soon!
