Sony PS3 Super Slim Console with 500GB Hard Drive. 4.6 5 26 27
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

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
Game time Able to pick it up when kids arrived 04 May 2013
good deal bought as birthday present for thirteen year old and he loves it . 16 April 2013
Sony PS3 Slim Console with 500gb Hard Drive. Like this version of PS3 if anything does go wrong at least you will get you disc back. Not like the first PS3 i had, had YLOD three times but the last time i had to strip the old machine to get disc back. Don`t mind having to close lid manually. 09 April 2013
got this item to replaced a previous one that was damaged. found it smaller in size more compact and lightweight . my child has to be prized away from it now 02 April 2013
Delighted Great item. easy to set up. 13 March 2013
