5.0 out of 5 stars Good Product September 8, 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought a white PS3 console from EZCorp - which included the console, cords, and a wireless controller. The product is great. Nice, sleek, and quick at responding. I have been thinking of getting one for ages. I'm always one console behind, so with the PS4 coming out soon I figured it was a good time!

One thing I didn't realize with the PS3 is the fact that it downloads via the Wi-Fi. Well, I knew it, but it didn't occur to me how good that Wi-Fi needed to be. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SUPER HIGH SPEED INTERNET THEN BUY THE GAME DISCS, don't buy from the Playstation Store. It can take an extremely long time for them to download. I do have high speed, but apparently it's not fast enough. That's not the PS3's fault though - that's my internet provider. And downloading while it's wired works better. But if you buy the disc, it does fine since it doesn't have to deal with a full download.

As for the PS3 itself, it's great. A nice step up from the PS2 (though I still LOVE that console!).

My seller was amazing. I got the PS3 in two days without paying for two day shipping because my total (with shipping) came out to be $200.70. It was perfect and well packed. I recommend buying from EZCorp if you can - it's worth it for a decent used item.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! October 8, 2014

It arrived right on time, and the system was not damaged at all! I got it new, but it was worth it. The only thing is that it does not come with an hdmi cord. Thankfully, i had one at home. I highly recommend this product, but just make sure you have an hdmi cord. It is much more clear with jt.

My PS3 came defected. All games downloaded to the HDD worked fine but any game on disc would freeze no no matter what I tried. Amazon sent me a return label, and issued me a refund. However, I picked up another one at Best Buy as it was my Grandson's BDAY and I wanted him to have his gift on his BDAY and not have to wait another 2 days for a replacement. Anyway, the new one works perfectly, and he's very happy. The PS3 is a great gaming console. The only thing I recommend is opening it up, and taking it apart to get to the CPU / GPU as Sony uses very poor thermal paste. The stock paste was dry right out of the box which will cause overheating issues in the future. I cleaned off the old paste, and applied some Artic Silver 5, and she's running perfectly. Unfortunately, the PS4's have the same issue so if and when you buy one of those, I recommend doing the same thing right away. Doing some as simple as thermal paste will prolong the life of your PS3/PS4 by a LONG SHOT. You normally want to apply new thermal paste every 3 years or so but since the stock paste is so bad, I do it right away to any new system I buy or I do it for friends. If the paste is dry, it isn't working as intended, and your PS3 may seem like it's running fine but it's really slowly overheating. That's why the fat 80gig models would YLOD because the paste would dry up in as little as a week or even came dry right out of the box, and the system would slowly overheat, and eventually it would get so hot it would break its own solder causing a connection failure, and YLOD. Doing this right off the bat PREVENTS that from ever happening. My personal 80gig fat model was getting louder and louder by the day, and after doing this, it was so quiet I couldn't believe it. Even after being left on for DAYS, it was still quiet. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a Playstation 3! August 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this PS3 to replace an old one that broke down. Considering my old PS3 broke due to the BD not being able to "suck in" my disc,this was a great change. I love the amount of space in the hard drive and the quickness of the reader not changing. It is a smaller system, but it feels the same. It's a sexy little Playstation 3!

This is a PRODUCT review of the unit being offered here, and in no way discusses the pros, cons, and the fanbois of any aspect of gaming consoles in general.

My brother's PS Slim finally died... oh ya, just stopped reading discs, period. He had the older PS3 Slim with the front disc loader. This one is a bit different in design, one I expect is a far newer "Slim" - most importantly it is a top-loader on which you place the disc directly upon the reader. The buttons are on the front, all manual push, and it has a ribbed texture whereas the older Slim was smooth. It has all the ports to be expected, and WiFi reception is excellent. The 500gig drive is a bit of a step up over his older one, a huge plus for his DL addiction (lol).

But as a replacement unit, this works flawlessly. My bro synched all his trophies, data, and DLC games to this unit (after watching some YouTube tutorials on the process) and is back online with his GTA and such. Heh.

5.0 out of 5 stars PS3 500GB SuperSlim, need I say more? May 13, 2014
Verified Purchase
Playstation rocks! & I like that I got the top of the line PS3 for $1000 off of the original price. I got a great deal & everything looks better in high quality picture on the TV, it runs MLB.tv & Netflix, Amazon.tv, Hulu.tv & full internet though the PS3 on your TV. The games are super high quality & fun. I like staying up all night & playing again, it's been a long time, & Play Station is better than ever. I would choose this over the new PS4 because of all the features of the 500gb & getting it for under $300.
I'm not into 3D tv or gaming, so I don't care about the PS4 or all the online stuff it is supposed to be better at. The PS3 is fine for me!
