If you are looking for a Playstation that will play All the Playstation Games except for PS4 this unit is awesome. Plays Ps1 Ps2 & ps3 games and also plays Blu Rays Dvds with ease. Go online and play also you can watch all your favorites online like netflix, hulu,youtube vudu and more .The fan is a little loud but still an awesome performing unit. Just make sure you don't leave it laying in your floor as it will get a little hot if left on carpeted surface.
love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I enjoy being able to play ps and ps2 games as well as ps3 games :P
My grandson had been wanting the PS3 forever, so I bought it for his 13th birthday. Although I will probably never know everything this unit is capable of, it made me happy to see him with it. I always thought it was just for playing games on but I now find out you can access Netflix, Hulu and lots of other movie media and download all sorts of things!!! Nice!!!
It works good and its very fun and entertaining.Made a good choice!The playstation 3 I bought is a very good system.
There is a Great Console System not only to play games you can see DVD Blue-Rays too,Great Value for many money experience.
I purchased this console on launch day in 2006. I remember vividly there wasn't a lot of good hype around this console (at least compared to PS4 launch). But I knew I wanted it because this was the cheapest Blu-Ray player you could get at the time. (They ran around $1000 this time in 2006). 8 years later I have no regrets. This was by far Sony's most risky console of the PS3 generation as it was very expensive, Blu-Ray was in it's infancy, and the PS2 compatibility was a development nightmare. From a hardware perspective this console is an amazing all in one piece that can play PS3, PS2, PS1, Blu-Ray, DVD disks. Now that it's in the last stages of it's life the software is just as great as the hardware, making this a must have console for any type of gamer.
Good purchase if you want a "fat" or as my friend calls it "George Foreman Grill" model. ;) But this model CECHL (2008) is NOT the original hardware launched in 2006. This model doesn't have the CF/SD card slots and only has two USB ports instead of the original's four. Most important for collectors or PS2 gamers, this model has no PS2 backward compatibility. The "Emotion Engine" that gave PS2 hardware emulation is available in the CECHA/CECHB models only (and "partial emulation" in the CECHC/CECHE models). So if you don't need PS2 emulation, and don't mind having only two USB ports and no CF/SD card slots, then this is a great PS3.
I got it, and it all went wrong immediately. First, I turned it on, then put a game inside it, and then I shut down. So I tried turning it back on, and it shut off 5 seconds later. It did that over and over. But then I realized I needed to get my game out, so I tried quickly turning it on, and pressing eject, but it wouldn't come out. Now my game is stuck in there and I have a broken ps3 and wasted $155.
This system on FW 3.55 is the best gaming console ever. Enough said. If you don't know what FW 3.55 is good for, don't ask!
Had some problems at first with product but got it fixed and works great now. Kids really enjoy the variety of games that they can play. So do us adults. Well worth having!
