    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Fine | Esthetic Issues The hardware in my Pre-Owned system works fine. However, the casing is heavily scuffed and is not very attractive from less than 5 feet away. I ordered it online and out of the box (a very shoddy, old box), the disc drive bay panel was popped off and broken. As far as functionality goes: It cannot play PS2 games (I knew this before buying), but has played both blu-rays and actual game discs with no issues thus far. I think it's worth mentioning to potential buyers that you may receive a console that is in visually poor shape, so just be aware of that before purchasing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great console for the price. I decided to upgrade my console, bought it cause I currently have PS2. My neighbor recommended I get a PS3, cause for the price of the console and the games that are available...I would enjoy the upgrade. My only issue was the controller, the R1 button didn't work, but the guys at the store had no problem switching it out.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average System broke down in a year. My Ps3 started great at first, well so it seemed. I had issues with the internet connectivity with PSN. I ended up using an Ethernet cable just to download a game. The system would sometimes freeze, but shortly after it would turn on. However, the experience on the console was great. The games were perfect on it, and the blue- ray was great. But, in the end my console ended up "overheating" or with the yellow light of death. The console lasted a good year, I would not recommend this console, I would get one of the slims.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't get it unless you have to/can't get better Don't get me wrong I love sony and every thing about them but the 40gb is the worst fat model out there. It's the same price as the 20gig and like 20 bucks cheaper then the 60gig (which can play all PS2 games). or even the 4 usb port 80gig (can play some ps2 games) If you have the option between this one and one of them get the other ones even if its the 20gig one, just buy a compatable hard drive and switch it out. Also if possible don't buy the refurbished ones they are 4 times louder. also don't be an idiot ceep it in an openish space.
