Sony PSP 3000 System (Recharged Refurbished)
this has to be the best game console ever. i use to own a psp 1000 but it died of overheating. so about 2 weeks ago i bought a 3000 refurbished. when i got home and turned it on it was like turning on a magic machine. i mean there was nothing wrong except for the screen it had a chipped piece. it was hard to see but it was still very nice.
What functionality!!! :)
it is amazing i got it a few days ago and i love it!!! the game i got for it little big planet is pretty good the graphics on this are good you can system update use a USB cable that comes with it (also charger headphones and screen cleaners) you can download music from i tunes (or other) you can also skype and take pics and videos if you get a camera for it but thats just some stuff but my utmost favorite thing about this psp is the playstation store after you make an account you can download any show movie or game you want !!!! (once it comes out that is) so this is the best portable system ive ever played it 1000000000000000% easily beats what i had before a ds .... the only thing that stinks is that the internet doesnt work to well but for only about 120 bucks its easily worth it >>> (P.S.if you movies shows music or a playstation store account get a memory stick first)
Worth the money
I bought this from my local Gamestop and got good service when being served. I bought this instead of the new because I thought the refurbished ones would work the same but have a little bit of scratches. Mine had about 5 minor scratches on the back and I thought it was pretty much new since it functioned really fast. Overall everything was up to my expectations except the headphones and screen protector. At first it didn't stick to the screen so I threw it away. The headphones weren't the best quality and I recommend picking up some skull candies. When I bought this it was $119.99 but since tax was 10 dollars more it cost $130 which was the same price as the new PSP, BUT the new PSP is $130 with out tax so you would expect a new PSP to be about $140. I would recommended this to anybody willing to upgrade to a new, nicer, very light, good functioning PSP
Simply not worth it
I purchased a refurbished 3000 model PSP on 07/15/11. Upon first inspection, the body of the system is covered in scratches, except for the screen. The analog stick has a horrible grinding feel to and sometimes physically doesn't move to the left. The battery cover is incredibly loose, to the point where it feels like it may fall off. Also, the system is flat out dirty. There's dirt and grime all over the shoulder buttons and the wlan switch. No one even bothered to wipe the system down when they were "refurbishing" it. Call me crazy, but I was going to ignore all of these cosmetic problems, but thenI turned on the system. I didn't notice until I actually started to play a game, but the screen had two dead/frozen pixels right in the center portion of the screen . They're blue and incredibly annoying. I planning on returning the system today 07/16/11 and getting a new one. Hopefully, I won't into problems returning it. FYI New 3000 series PSPs are only $129.99 compared to these at $119.99. The problems with the system definitely do not offset the $10 in savings. Save yourself the hassle and just buy yourself a new PSP instead of refurbished.

Much better than I thought it would be
We are currently on or 3rd PSP, Oddly enough, Not due to my 8 yr old son. My wife seems to have issues with these. Anyway, After the first one (series 1001) took on a large cup of coffee with cream and sugar (Wife), We tried to go with a refurbished one. After the second one went back the same day for different multiple issues and they had no others in stock, I ended up buying a brand new one. This one was the updated silver 3001 series. This one lasted for some time, Then, Yep, laundry day.The wife again, Grabbed the top sheet, Gave it a good pull and off the top bunk went the new psp, end for end. Yep, landed on the hardwood floor, Broke again. So after doing some research I was told that these refurbished 3000 series actually goes back to sony to be reconditioned, Not a third party. So, I decided to try it. We got it home discovered it came with ear buds and a protective cover. It's been over a week now and we have had no issues at all. from the playstaion store to umd games. It looks like its new and performs the same way. The only draw back for me was a new one is only like $40.00 more, So you have to weigh it for you whether or not it is worth it to save $40.00. Overall, very pleased, I knocked it for price, I think it could be cheaper. Otherwise I would have scored it higher.
PSP 3000 Recharged refurbished \\\ Second thoughts
Why is it that I'm one of the few only people that don't really have a problem with this ??? It works just fine and even though it makes noise when your game disc is in seriously , that shouldn't bother you if your playing a game that's good !!! I've only had mine for like 4 month's but yeah I suppose this system can get OLD fast ... BUT , What is seeming to keep me going with this is the playstation store ... It offers tons and tons of music , games , wallpapers , Tons of stuff ! The episodes of pulse I look forward to every 2 weeks because their these awesome playstation news videos .... The games are good ... That's my second opinion , this system is still good .
A great little console, with a few flaws.
The PSP 3000 is a good little console, good graphics, good sized games, and the system lasts long. The only problems i have is that my cover that is on the back of the psp that is covering the battery wouldnt fit on, and it wouldnt stay, making it uncomfortable to hold it. so i have it duct taped down, it looks ugly but it works. sometimes the battery will stop working even after fully charging the psp, and then i have to rip off the duct tape, and reput the battery in, and re duct tape it. other than that the system works great, i spend many hours playing games, listening to music, going on the interent. This system is well worth the money and is very fun for gaming. 8/10
Good performance, Real games for adults!!
I was skeptical of getting the recharge 3000 at first but after I found out about the warranty, it was the right choice. I own several systems but when it comes down to hand held graphics the PSP is just way superior to anything on the market right now. Another big plus was that when I was shown the unit it was a red and black god of war edition. It looks and functions flawless so I believe it was a very good choice...
It's also a plus that it includes a screen protector and ear buds. I would recommend this product especially if you can get your hands on a special color edition like I did...
A PS2/PS3 in Your Pocket!
This is a great system! I have had both a PlayStation 2 and 3 and this has the games of both and the graphics in the middle. I thought it was worth as much as i paid and that was even before the huge PS Vita price reduction! The system is great with amazing games and classics like Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, Rock Band, Ratchet & Clank and many, many more! The only bad things about this system is it does not work with extremely new and protected routers, and also there is only one joystick. Get this product and you will not be disappointed!
