Customer reviews and ratings

Sony PS3 Super Slim Console with 500GB Hard Drive. 4.6 5 31 32
perfect Perfect console compared to the older models, runs a lot faster and smoother 11 September 2014
Great features I bought this for my son and he was very happy! 06 May 2014
This Console is good value I have not owned a PlayStation console since The original one some years ago now and purchased this on a whim. I was not disappointed, It is far more than just a games console and I was pleasantly surprised by the added features of it's ability to store pictures, music and access to Now Tv, bbc iplayer itv on demand ect.. so it has in effect upgraded my TV to an almost smart Tv status, 19 March 2014
Great Price Having shopped around Argos had one of the best deals with the best price. What was even better was being able to purchase it on my Argos card and have it on interest free credit. Having reserved it I was there when the store opened and had one very happy boy when I got home as our 6 year old PS3 stopped reading discs at the weekend ! Thank you Argos ! 18 March 2014
well worth buying with loads of space for storage 20 February 2014
PS3 slim console The console is a bit delicate that's the only bad thing about it, other wise it's perfect. 05 February 2014
EXCELLENT SERVICE we were looking to get a PS3 and Argos offered the best deal with a free game. Great graphics.make sure you get a second hdmi cable if you are using sky as you definitely need this. Access to tv programmes and the internet. Reccomend this product.definitely worth forking out for the extra mbs. 14 January 2014
Upgrade my PS3 Had been meaning to get a newer model with bigger memory for a while now great system loads of memory now really happy. 01 October 2013
Great for Watching TV Media The whole family is now PS3 mad and I don't mean playing games! I bought this as a birthday treat for myself as our old Toshiba media thing broke down. I know there's a ton of other stuff it can do which I'll get round to trying out eventually, played Grand Turismo for about half an hour last month which was cool. The PS3 gets used everyday by my wife, my daughter and myself watching Netflix, BBC iPlayer, 4OD, ITV Player and YouTube. I even bought the remote control for it which is great!! 03 September 2013
product worth the money present for my gandson he was thrilled with it 13 August 2013
Fab! Great bargain from argos included offer with product which is even better! 13 August 2013
Rubbish I cant believe how bad this is , i brought this for my birthday a little while back , and to be honest Xbox is ALOT better , i would suggest getting an Xbox instead of PS3 hope this helps :) 06 August 2013
Many Thanks Great item. easy to set up. 23 July 2013
PS3 Great Console, well worth the money and easy to use. 18 July 2013
Great choice Bought. As a bundle great value great piece of kit cheers argos 17 July 2013
Happy Customer PS3 is brilliant, very fast, looks nice and slim and has all the memory i could want Really happy with it 26 June 2013
Ps3 Brilliant value and perfect storage for all my games and DLC 05 June 2013
Great service Really friendly & helpful staff, most impressed. First purchase from Argos, would happily go back. 29 May 2013
Greatness Awaits My fat 80gb PS3 lasted me 3 years before it got the dreaded Yellow Light of Death. When I first got the Super Slim PS3 out of its box, I had never seen one in person before and was surprised at how light, small and portable this was in comparison to the older model I owned. 500gb is definitely sufficient, even if you're a casual gamer, owning no more than 10 PS3 games, as a lot of space is taken up when installing games and downloading updates. The console is noisiest during loading screens on a game or loading up anything else in general but other than that, it remains a quiet hum in the background. One of the main concerns I have with the Super Slim PS3 is that it heats up quite quickly towards the back of the console after about an hour of playing. I never tend to play for longer than an hour but having the console heat up like that (though it's not extremely hot) just makes me worried that this console will suffer from overheating and lead to the "Yellow Light of Death" again or something similar (which is why it's best to switch off the PS3 every hour or so to let it cool down if you're planning on gaming for hours). Thankfully the one year warranty from Sony (that I'm assuming all PS3 consoles have) should cover anything in case something does happen to go wrong with the PS3. Another concern is that the power cable is quite short compared to the one for my older PS3 model but this isn't too much of an issue for me as a plug socket is always in reach nearby. The console gets 4/5 for now due to the fact that I'm unsure of how long the PS3 will last me compared to the 3 lived years of my old console. 22 May 2013
insert title here Yeah, it's pretty good. 21 May 2013

I had an original, launch model of the PS3 which only lasted me 30 months before failing with the YLOD. (Yellow Light Of Death). I had it replaced by Sony for a refurbished model and even though my refurbished model slightly outlived my first console, it eventually also suffered with YLOD.

I had it repaired and only got three months out of it before failing again with the same problem.

One of my friends has told me that the YLOD issues COULD now possibly be resolved on these Super Slim versions.

Is this the case at all and have Sony confirmed this anywhere?

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your question.

I have looked into this for you and Sony have not confirmed that there is an issue with this console, if there was an ongoing issue then Sony would recall all consoles and we would not sell them. I understand the problems you have encountered have been reported to Sony and this also seems to be present in the Xbox 360 however both Sony and Microsoft have not confirmed this an issue and reports on this can be found on various websites, it would therefore be at your discretion to purchase this console however Argos have no reported issues.

Thank you for using Q & A.
