A Great Console, But There are Better Options Available
The older Sony Playstation 3 consoles were, in my opinion, the best made. At release they were priced at a hefty $600 or more, so over the life of the system Sony removed features to make it more affordable. Unfortunately, the 80 GB model removes the PS2 backwards compatibility. To make matters worse, the bulky older model PS3 has a high failure rate due to issues with circuit board flux and thermal paste. If you go with a "fat" PS3, your best bet is the 60 GB model, or even a 20 GB if you don't need Wifi capability. You'll still have plenty of fun if you find a good deal on an 80 GB console, but if you just want to enjoy PS3 games and don't need PS2 backwards compatibility I would recommend picking up a PS3 slim instead. For just a bit more money, you would get all the functionality of the 80 GB "fat" model, but with a larger hard drive and better durability.Read full review

This is a great item i love that it is backwards compatible. The only thing i hate about this product is that i cant use the standard RCA output failed to function, HDMI worked perfectly but all my TV's are HDMI ready. Overall great product.

Playstation 3 60GB (CECHA01) will be unique playing PS2
The only PS3 (besides the 20GB) that has backwards compatibility with PS2 and PS1 games without the hiccups, dropoffs and freezing that you get on some of the 80GB PS3 systems. The 80GB uses software for emulation which makes is glitchy and unreliable with some PS2 games. Even if they bring back PS2 emulation to all PS3 systems including the new slim models, it will not compare and will be hit and miss with PS2 software. The 60GB has the PS2 emotion engine (EE) that makes it 100 percent compatible with all PS2 and PS1 games. So if you have a lot of PS2 software that you love and cannot seem to part with this is the system for you. I played some Socom 2 and was suprised to see people are still online, probably those who are holding out on buying a PS3 since they dont have emulation right now. You also get the card readers which is always a plus since you dont have to buy it if you have a slim. You can use the USB ports on the slim but even that has been cut down to two instead of four on the 60GB, which is another plus. The difference between 60GB and 20GB is the wireless capability, which for some people is a must unless you have a house that is wired for CAT 5 cabling (newer houses have this as an option which is very convenient when it comes to hooking up to a wired house). So if your in the market for a used PS3 why not get the best one before they slimmed it and cut it down to what it was envisioned to be.
The unit is a power hog and runs hot which is why you see a lot of them suffering from YLOD and being sold on Ebay. If you are going to get a 60GB system make sure you get the Nyko Temperature Sensing cooling fan to exhaust hot air in the back and the CTA dual centrifugal cooling fan to force cool air in the front. This should almost eliminate the YLOD that plagues this system. Both cooling fans are hard to find so Good Luck on you purchase. Why do you think Sony made the slim, because they know its a common occurence on the older units and its also a marketing strategy (newer, slimmer eco friendly PS3) that is working wonders for them. So pick the right system for you.Read full review

Sony Ps3 80gb with red screen of death Issue.
I would be careful when ordering Ps3's with the red screen of death that are out
of the warranty period. It isn't an easy fix and you are going to end up paying
Sony to repair the PS3. They charge $99 and above depending on when your model was purchased and the warranty status.
Always ask about the firmware. If it is firmware 3.56 with a red screen error I can bet the machine will have to be sent in for repair.
At least you get a new 90 day warranty from sony for your headache of reshipping it back to them for the unit to be serviced.
Before you purchase a used ps3 with errors do your homework and ask what firmware it was on when it broke down.
or just take your chances like I did and end up sending it in to Sony for repair.
