Works great. Good condition.
Great product. Good color and screen visibility. The sound is a little low so best to use ear buds if you are in a noisy room. Great features and easy to use.

Great product! You'll love it!
You definitely are getting what you pay for. Simply put, the PSP is an amazing device - it has crystal clear clarity for movies, flash memory for MP3s, and a large assortment of FUN games (as opposed to the DS - but I will touch more on that later). Really, what more could you want?
I don't mean to trash the Nintendo DS ( I have them both), but they clearly are not in same league. This is probably partially by design - the Nintendo DS (Judging by its assortment of games) is designed for kids under the age of 12. With the exception of Super Mario 64 - I have yet to find one game that I enjoy. The PSP already has a much better selection of games, and games that adults actually want to play - notice there is not a "Madagascar" for the PSP. The PSP is designed to be a total entertainment device.
Here are some comparisons and pros and cons-
PSP 5 out of 5 - really they are as good as you could ever expect
DS- 5 out of 5 - maybe a shade worse than the PSP- but still very good
PSP - 4 out of 5 Has issues with volume (you almost have to wear the headphones) - but plenty of options for tweaking the set-up
DS - 4 out 5 also a little problem with volume , but not bad
PSP- 2.5 out 5 - clearly this is where the PSP underperforms the DS. The Nintendo DS uses a flash type memory compared to the PSP's optical read. There is a large difference between the two.
DS- 5 out of 5 - The Flash memory is much faster
PSP- 4 out of 5 - an already large selection and growing by the day. HUGE advantage over the DS
DS- 1.5 out of 5 in my opinion- it only has 1 good game. Supposedely there will be a metroid game released, but I have been waiting for 8 months.
PSP- Another HUGE advantage over the DS... here is a list of thing you can do on the PSP that you can NOT do on the DS
- Watch/rent movies
- Listen to MP3s off of a flash media card (Much like an ipod)
- view pictures off of your digital camera (or Sony Digital camera at least)
Things you can do on the DS that you can NOT do on the PSP
- draw pictures using a stylus
ADVANTAGE - PSP
Tip: Be VERY careful of the PSP screen not to get it scratched. I can see no easy way of replacing it, and to severely scratch it would be horrible. My advice is (until you can buy the "Real" screen cover) trim a piece of plastic wrap around the screen. The static electricity will cause the plastic wrap to stick and thus protect your screen.
I have purchased an inexpensive case on Ebay for about five bucks. It's made of silicone and completely encases the PSP. Works great and has eased my worried mind!Read full review

Silver 2001 PSP
This is a great system when your on the go or traveling far. or if you jux dont want wired to bug u lol. But it has good features like music which is my life lol. I like the ps3 because its small and u get to play some fun games. One thing i do not like is that the screens can break easily if you dont have them in a hard case like my first one lol. My second one i was like forget that i need to protect it so i bought a hard case. overall its a great system for any age.

Great Overall Handheld Gaming System!
Been using it ever since I got it. Tons of great games and other multimedia capabilities. I also have a DS, but I've been using the PSP a lot more recently. Also, the interlacing problem people have been talking about...it's not so bad and I barely see them(you have to look really closely or wiggle the PSP to actually see those lines, but I don't think people would do that anyway...). I think overall the screen is a big improvement to the 1000s and 2000s due to the wider range of colors and being brighter. The microphone is a great touch to the already great handheld system. I won't say the PSP is better than the DS since I think they're both great consoles, but if you are curious about getting a PSP, I would definitely recommend it!

Sony Slim PSP Ice Silver
I've had mine for a couple of months now and I really enjoy it.It's the Swiss Army Knife of handheld entertainment. Games on it look spectacular! You can download demos and full games right to it from the internet, no download "stations" like the DS. When you can get them to convert properly, movies look excellent also. There is no way to create a playlist for your music that I've seen so far, otherwise it's a good player. The browser that comes with it is a little clunky and doesn't play well with a lot of pages but will generally get you the info you want. The internet radio is a great features and when I figure out how to preset stations it'll be better! If I had constant access to WI-FI then I would like to try the Skype feature but I'm on the road a lot and it would do me no good there.:-) It will be outdated completely in a year or 2 by the likes of the iPhone and the Android but it is still a cool toy with better battery life than any phone out there. Call me old-fashioned but I like for my phone to basically be just a phone, a camera and a PIM!:-) I just hope Sony keeps supporting this for a few more years!Read full review
