You better be a network specialist

Hard to set up and configure to your router, Took 1 minute to connect a new laptop, Took hours of research on get the PS3 online. Better of going with PS4,which I understand doesn't have the same problem Overall it works fine for the price

Ps3 is a great console

It is a great console. I see a lot of reviews of people complaining about how low the memory is. It's very sad to see how many people are foolish enough to buy a console knowing how little storage there is to only later on complain about it.. Overall this is actually a pretty bad deal just pay more and get 488 more gigabytes and a video game.

Sony Black PlayStation 3

-Some notes for these reviews are that, the PS3 is an easy console to use because it turns on by simply clicking a button and its comes with a controller and you can play games on it. -The PS3 Is good because you can play online with people in lots of games and much more.

Back to PS3

Sold my troublesome PS4 to go back to PS3. Games are better, ya the PS4 is faster but PS3 is more reliable. I installed a 1TB hybrid SSD drive in it using a $8.00 mount kit found online. Over all happy with the superslim. I also have an XBOX One so I don't miss my PS4 at all. Good to play my PS3 games again.

they do have good ps3's but you have to order them. so for every one who is looking for a ps3 go to the front desk and order one

junk!!!

has no memory! not even enough memory to download a video game I purchased off the sony store online, but meanwhile i can download tonnes of stuff on my first generation ps3. Have been a huge sony fan over the years and to see them take a step backwards at the expense of the customer is downright insulting and they'll never get my business again. Is this the beginning of the end for sony? I think so.

Excellent purchase !!!

Yes 12GB is nothing, but to all the whining people: I cannot stress more how easy, hassle free and cheap it is to upgrade the HDD !! I had a 7200rpm Sata 360GB 2.5 collecting dust, i formatted it in FAT32 (search online for the app that gets the job properly done because the one from Sony did not work for me), put it inside and voila ! The OS recognized it right away and I am happy as a dog. Compare that to propietary casing and a cumbersome upgrade of the Xbox hdd and do your math. My only critic is that you cannot install the games on the Hdd to play them from there (something i could do from day 1 with my 360) But that is a complain to Sony rather than the product itself.

ps3

great console. easy to use only problem is for the price 12 GB is not nearly big enough. that only enough space for 3 games tops especially if it has any updates.

Great value

A great system at a great price. I'm very happy with the system. I recommend people who buy this system to do the same. Installing the hard drive is very easy and there are plenty of tutorials online.

Awesome! Just what I wanted.

Being an XBox 360 owner, I decided to take the plunge in to the PlayStation world. I recently bought a PS4 on release day, but there aren't many games out for it yet. I decided to pick up a PS3 in the meantime as it was on sale being as I love the PS+ Store freebies which are keeping me occupied. Nice quiet console. There is no HDD that comes with it, but I had a spare 160GB kicking around which I installed. You need a special HDD bracket. In the meantime, I bent an old credit card in half to hold the drive in place. Very pleased with my purchase. So far I've put more hours on my new PS3 than my PS4.

Not a Good Choice

I did not realize that the low GB hard drive would limit me to only being about to install 2 games onto the console. I purchased four games and am now extremely disappointed as I'm the type of person who likes to play through many games at once. This was a bad choice as I wasn't aware the games took up so much space. NOT a good choice for anyone wanting to play more than 2 games at once. I would not recommend this to anyone who really likes gaming.

Great Deal for a Great Machine

For those who are hesitant because of the 12G don't worry one bit! Take advantage of the price. For less than 200 bucks you get a great system that is designed to be hard drive upgradable if you ever decide you need more storage. If you do upgrade it will take any SATA HDD or SSD. This system is designed for easy upgrade. Just pop in a new drive after removing one screw and the software automatically formats it for you. SSD? HDD? 500G? 250G?...you get to decide. ...don't be discouraged by nay-sayers...this is one heck of deal on a proven console.

Enjoying it a lot

Recently purchased this and I think it's great. Though I'm a casual gamer myself and don't plan on buying a ton of games. May not be suitable for players who want to purchase many games as there is limited memory. Would have been better if there was more than 12gb...I mean...my iPhone has more than that! Anyway, aside from that, I love it. Good deal.

Kind of a waste

its ridiculous the SSD is only 12gb. SSD's may be faster but PS3 can't run them any faster then a HDD anyways so there is no speed increment at all. I only got this because it was the cheapest new option and I had a extra 1tb laptop drive. Unless you have a HDD of a decent size laying around extra I would not waste your money on this. Sony could have at least made this a 40gb without a price increment. SSD drives are becoming cheap as dirt.

SSD memory

It has SSD drive which is 1000 times faster than outdated hard drive. Wish PS4 had the same kind of memory storage.

Good deal

3 times as much hard drive space as the competition's [similarly priced] model. All that, plus the far superior library of games and blu ray. [...]

Great for casual gamers

This model is great for casual gamers and people who want a blueray player and netflix player. Even thought the memory is not a lot I think you can add external memory for games and or change the internal memory. Overall a great buy!
