Great! Works Perfectly and good value for money 09 August 2013
good for normal offline gaming For my son he loved it 30 July 2013
Watse of time Bought this and the system crashed in as many days took it back and bought the 500gb that so far is more stable. 30 July 2013
exellent The ps3 is a fun console and my children really enjoy it. 30 July 2013
Love it :D I bought this to replace my fat noiser ps3, it's great value for money, i was going to get the 500gb version but it's cheaper to get this one and order 1tb hdd else where, the ps3 is great a lot quieter than i imagined it would be, also has faster bluray drive than other models :D i would reccomend this to anyone wanting to replace a fat ps3, as you can play games and watch movies without the hoover noise :D and yes it does seem a bit cheaply built, but that's how they keep the price low, :D 24 July 2013
Great gaming no problems setting it up what so ever and I now enjoy hours of games most days :) 26 June 2013
Smaller, lighter and cheaper! I had to purchase this recently after my 80 GB original ?FAT? PS died unexpectedly after 4 years. The first thing to say is that it is a lot smaller and much much lighter than the original, and from what I understand the previous Slim PS3 version as well. This has a matte finish unlike the glossy one of the original PS3. The unique feature of this Superslim is the sliding tray mechanism, where you have to press a button and the tray cover springs to one side for you to put the disk in, and then you have manually slide it shut. Gone are the automatic loading disk mechanisms seen in the last 2 PS3 versions ? surely a way of brining the cost and price down to make it affordable to as many as possible ahead of the PS4 launch. Also gone are the really nice touch sensitive buttons seen on the original. Finally the 12 GB version allows you to easily upgrade the HDD, by buying a separate caddy, and a HDD of your choice. 19 June 2013
Great birthday present I bought this for my teenage son for his birthday. It was a very competitive price and he loves it. No problems whatsoever 19 June 2013
12gb more like 5!!! Useable I bought this 12gb ps3 with gran turismo 5, after getting it home I waited over and hour before I got chance to play it due to updates, the ps requested I had to in stall gt before I could even play it leaving me with 2gb of room left. I then bought assassins creed 3 a few days later and without deleting gt I couldn't play it due to lack of memory. Save extra and get more memory this 1's effectively useless :( 13 June 2013
Great Thought the 12G flash drive would be too small but I was wrong, installed Red dead nightmare pack and 4 other smaller games and Ive still got quite a bit spare. 12 June 2013
