nice and light, great graffics 09 January 2014
playstation3 slim 12gb nice smaller version of original ps3, does the adequately enough, could of done with larger hdd, 12gb is not enough when gta5 installs on 8gb of it. 09 January 2014
Excellent The PS is fantastic with no issues at all. Had it as part of a deal with FIFA 14 included. Only downside for me was the price was lower when I could have bought it cheaper but it's my fault as I waited a bit more! Kids love it and are still having fun. 09 January 2014
good price ideal present 09 January 2014
Good kids love it Our first ps3 kids love it but wish had gone for one with bigger GB has had to buy more space 09 January 2014
good looking console product great not happy about the fact i cannot get my free game until 24/1 should be enough in stock to begin with. 09 January 2014
PS3 not just for gaming This is the right time to buy the Ps3 as its a mature system with loads of features. I wanted it to play Blu-rays and stream video which it does just fine; and you get all the games too if you want. The functionality on the PS3 is great something that the next gen consoles cant match as none support streaming your own content. Don't forget you can buy 4 for these for the price of one PS4 08 January 2014
Good value for money Good item at a great price, never see my daughter anymore- added bonus ;) 08 January 2014

Very good had the big console before.this is nice and small. 12 November 2013
ps3 it does what it says on the tin its a ps3 doesn't need an introduction 22 October 2013
PS3 What you'd expect from a PS3! Great if you just want to play games and not into the whole gaming industry which will require you to save data etcc... 15 October 2013
Good Buy All seems to work ok. Nice and slim 03 October 2013
Great This works well, it's super light and easy to travel with 24 September 2013
Great Product This was bought as a replacement of my daughters older PS3 that was overheating. This is a much smaller model and much quieter. We did find that the 12GB wasn't enough so have added a HDD. 15 September 2013
Sony PS3 Slim 12Gb. I had massive reservations about buying this model, I had the original 40Gb fat which served me well until June this year 2013. My idea is to install my hard-drive from the old one and I have the Sony fixing bracket so it should be possible. I am very impressed with the near silence of this machine, what a difference, so okay it does not have much capacity as a stand alone but it can be upgraded. Look out for real bargains as the new PS4 comes out, this will do me for now. 10 September 2013
Sony Playstation 3 Super Slim Absolutely fantastic. I had the fat PS3 since the release date and it was so loud that I could barely hear the sound from the tv when I was playing late at night with the volume down. What a difference with this super slim version! It runs almost completely silent to the point that I can hear the disc spinning inside! Very pleased! Well done Sony! 05 September 2013

Best buy ever! My husband decided to buy a ps3 for the kids and himself lol he does not have a look in,well sometimes.The kids absolutley love it cannot praise it enough,especially over the summer holidays.We bought a hard drive for more storage space,but the price is great.The ps3 is not just for playing games it plays dvd and blu ray and quite alot of catch up Tv programmes. Very happy family! 18 August 2013
