With standard ground shipping, I recieved my PS3 in 4 business days instead of 5, which should have been nearly an actual week due to the weekend. I got my PS3 delivered 2 days earlier than expected and the $30-$35 I saved on express or next day delivery paid for a (used) game. Thank you Sony Style and FedEx! The coolest thing about my PS3 so far, if the HDD fails, there are instructions in the User Manual on how to remove the HDD and replace it with an aftermarket one. How cool is that? So, I give Sony the stink-eye for my 120GB PS3 not playing PS2 games (there were a few I missed), but I'm astounded they tell you in the manual how to upgrade the HDD! I give Sony a 3 stars on reliability b/c I personally know folks who had to send their 40gb and 80gb PS3's back after a year. I give them 3 stars on value b/c everyone who spent $399-$499 when the PS3 debuted has to be P/O'd about the price drops. All I can say is I'm glad my personal economics dictated I had to wait 2 years for my PS3.

I am an xbox gamer mostly, but I got the PS3 to play blue ray movies. I own 9 blue ray movies, and only used the system approx 30 times over a 2 year period. Bought a Sony bravia TV for the basement yesterday, and plugged in the PS3. After watching Ironman for 15 min, the dvd stopped playing. Tried several DVD's and nothing worked. Called Sony, and they said I need to pay them $180 to replace the drive. I've always owned an xbox and PS3, for different reasons, but this is such a dissapointment. I play call of duty all night long, every night, and my XBOX works fine. so...... how can a PS3 thats hardly even used malfunction like that? I feel like I wasted money on this product.

PS3 Vs XBOX 360
I own both PS3 and XBOX 360, side by side on (2) 48" screens you can't tell the difference and anyone that thinks they can is full of it. My XBOX 360 I had to purchase a wireless adapter $55.00, the PS3 connected the instant I turned it on with the built in wireless. I prefer the XBOX 360 hand controller, maybe I just got use to the button layout, had it 1.5 years before getting the PS3. The XBOX network costs $$$ by the month or year a gold membership like I have runs $50.00 per year. The PS3 no charge its all free, which amazed me since I wasnt use to not paying a fee to be on the live network. Games, they both have about the same choices and each has their own live network, so you cant play your buddies using an XBOX in the PS3 network. You can get Netflix or play Blu-Ray on either one, theres no difference in the picture. The one thing I liked about the PS3 is you can D/L software (PS3 Media server) and watch everything youve recorded on any PS3 system. With XBOX Ive recorded a few series (Fight Science) and they would not play on any other XBOX we have, message stated (has to be viewed from the recorded system). XBOX network has some new music channels, but heck I have plenty of CDs to listen to. All in all its a personal choice both are good systems, if your parent save a few bucks and buy the PS3 you wont have to pay for the live network. The only grip I have with either unit is, my boys (6) all want the same game (thats 6 games to buy $$$), each one has their own PS3 and (3) have an XBOX with the PS3. There should be a way for parents to save a few dollars when they own (6) units when it comes to buying games.

ps3 with 3D BLUE RAY COMPATIBLE
it s possible in the future
flashing red light
It hurts when your entertainment system fails to continue to provide you with the performance you come to love. it seems as though the machine was desinged with a predetermined life line, as to provide continued revenue

I Love this. Its so awesome. I have a really dusty house though. Like a film of dust forms on PS3 slim every day. I use a microfiber cloth to wipe it down and 8oz Novus 3 bottles for $20. The Novus bottles are for polishing and scratch removing. Only thing is, is that it does not clean and remove the scratches TOTALLY, but it is decent. Other than the scratches and dust, this is an awesome product. It does however freeze up a couple of times in Midnight Club LA complete edition. No problem though, i just shut off and turn back on. I think thats an issue everyone has. I love the 120GB HDD, although, its 111GB. And I still have 90GB left, ITS AWESOME!!! I'm going to keep buying a warranty as long as I own the product. I going to get a 2 year warranty after my first year is a month left of warranty. Only thing is, I wonder what it costs for different length warranties. I Bought my PS3 slim brand new by the way. Thanks for taking the time to read this, I usually don't write something this big.

very poor quality junk from Sony
my ps3 is dated nov 2007 and hardly gets played as I am working all the time.it just died today in the middle of a game and has the blinking light nonsense going on.for the kinda money they charge you would expect this system to last for a few years.I mean a few years of play not the 1 or 2 times a month I play a game.

I love everything about ...
from Scottsdale, AZ
I love everything about this system except the appearance and i think it looks a lot cooler with the chrome look at the old, fat PS3. Also i think the touch sensitive buttons were a cool feature for the old PS3's appearance unlike any other systems appearance. Overall great system.
