Sony PSP 1000 System (ReCharged Refurbished)
I finally got it! This is a great handheld you can play most of the old PS2 games anywhere you want! get this it is awesome.
This was a decent buy
The Refurbished PSP 1000 was a slight disappointment at first, since one of my buttons on the right side wouldn't input properly. I had to press it on it's far right side in order for it to register the button, since the left side is apparently off the registration area. Also, it won't read my UMDs when it's laying down at all. If I lay it down in the middle of a loading screen, it'll stop the loading and I'll have to reset my PSP. Another thing is that the USB slot doesn't function. It constantly says 'Please Wait' as it attempts to connect to my computer, and even after an hour does not connect. But I guess with any refurbished item you're bound to have either miniscule or major malfunctions. So buying something like this is mostly a gamble than a sure-fire guarantee at a good system. I'm able to bend around the UMD and the button problems, but that USB problem is terrible since I back-up my saves on my computer in case of corruption on my PSP.
I bought the PSP 1000 4 days ago and so far no problems. It functions wonderfully and I personally think many people who want to buy the psp 3000 should buy this, it is better value for your money in most ways, and in most situations it functions great. What are you waiting for? BUY IT!
It's really great system!
I just got it like a month ago and works fine. You can go on the web download videos download music and download pictures. I would give this 10 but the problem is that the battery is hard to stick in the psp and to shut it. It's like the battery to big. It took me around 10 minutes to put it on But that the only big problem for me. I got it in good condition. I would get this instead of the other psp's because the 1000 is physically stronger it's harder to break. Oh and i recommend getting a memory card for this and i recommend getting the memory at amazon because it's cheaper. A game i recommend for this system would be sega genesis collection. If you like the classic sonic games as sonic 1 and 2 you should get it. You can get it cheaper at playstation store and download it from there.
PIECE OF AWESOME
i just bought this on my bithday in 2011 with my birthday money. i just couldnt let it go! i wanted the 3000 but i relized theres not a big diffrence.i think this is better than my broken ds lite,although it also was a good system also,i can slip it in my pocket and take my psp 1000 anywhere.theres interenet,games,music,comics,settings,and even playstation store! 2 WORDS, BUY IT,BUY IT,BUY IT. just in case,buy a strap so you dont drop it.although,its made with good material.
IT WAS A TOUGH DECISION
it was a tough decision for me to get this because i didn't know if i should since it was pretty old. BUT NOW all i can say is this system is AWSOME I've ben wanting one of these sense i was about 10 or 11 . now I'm 15 and i finally got one and i haft to say its the best decision I've made . i can play games ANYWHERE.altogether with tax it was $65.39 , thats a great price. and its the SAME as my brothers 3000 , doesn't seem much heavier to me and they both do pretty much the same thing...GET ONE
SENSITIVE BUT WORTH THE MONEY!
I just recently purchased this system for myself around my birthday. I bought it Pre-Owned at about $89.99 at their local store and bought Call of Duty: Roads to Victory for it. The game isn't as great as I expected from the COD franchise but it's still pretty fun to play when you're bored. If you buy this at the store, it may not come with the extra battery or headphones that it promises on the website. It does still come with the AC adaptor which isn't really AC at all...you have to plug it into the USB port on your computer to charge it - which is a downside. The system takes a little getting used to. It's nothing like the Nintendo DS I had a few months earlier. The graphics are way better, the sound is crisp and clear, and the colors are amazing. It's simply a great system with some great perks - one of them being that it has Wi-Fi built in to the system itself. Unfortunately, if you have DSL, it may not support your level of security which prevents you from using the internet on the system. Also, the games are extremely cool for it - unlike the DS. You have all kinds of great RPGs. This is not a system I would recommend for a child though. This system is geared more towards adults than anyone else. Enjoy!
1000 Its Great it just depends on the psp..?
It Might Seem Good At First ..Some Are Great ..Some Break .. It was Already sent once To Be Fixed... The Past Handheld Owner Might Have been banned..online errors.. Just becareful Investigate the psp an hope you get lucky an get a good one...if it has problems Take It Back If You think Your Time Is Runnin Out...!!!
Best handheld system I've ever had.
Honestly I never really wanted a PSP, then a friend of mine began to hound me to get one so hed have someone to play games with. I ended up getting one last year for my birthday and It may have been one of the best purchases I've ever made. The games are more in depth and the graphics are superior to the DS lite that I own. Sure you have to buy a memory card but its not that bad. I recomend spluging and buying a big memory card that way you don't have a bunch of tiny ones hanging around (it can get confusing to remember which game is on which). The 1000 is seems sturdier than the others so I recommend it if you're rough with your systems...or have smaller siblings that like to get into your stuff. The one I purchased from gamestop was in great condition (it only had a few light scratches on the screen). While it has a good battery life I'd recomend getting another battery if you play for extended periods of time away from home.
Pretty Good Overall
the psp 1000 may be old, but it is still pretty good
