Been using it for a couple days now
on January 18, 2014
Bought this for 129 NEW from GFMedia (GameFunk).... came brand new sealed in the box, still packed new and still had the Playstation tape on the box. It works perfectly fine just like my old fatty (which still works, I just wanted a backup, so the fatty's in the closet). Plays all my games, DVD's, even blue backed PS2 games I have which (according to someone else's link to games that dont' work on the Slim) werent' supposed to work. It works perfect, doesn't overheat..... ya' know that's what happens when you buy something NEW.... instead of the dimwits that bought used and expected it to last long then posted 1-star reviews.
That list I mentioned said Legend of Dragoon (a PS1 game) wasn't supposed to work on a Slim. I'd like to paste a post I put elsewhere to clear that up:
"I just got a Slim PS2 off Amazon. Put my bulky first model that still works in the closet as a backup. But here's the weird thing with Legend of Dragoon. It only works (on EITHER version of the PS2) on composite cable (yellow/red/white). Found this out cause I also switched to new PS2 component cables (the 5 cable cords, red/gree/blue for video) for a better picture on a newer type TV (I have a sony Bravia). The game was all frakked up on Component...... but it was fine on composite. WEird huh? I've never before seen a game that only works on one type of cable.
I mention this cause a review on the Slim console on Amazon gave a link to a list of ~20 games that wont' work on a PS2 Slim. This was one of them. More likely everyone who tried it was using component cable... so dont' toss your composite cables. If you switch to using PS2 component cables on newer tv's for a bettter picture you'll still need the composite one for this game"
