SONY......the one and only!
With a little investment, the PS3 can be brought back to top performance after it has aged and a little wear and tear. With a little maintenance (cleaning and dust removal) it can last a bit longer. Get it Professionally repaired when needed. (Sending it to SONY is not necessary)

Newegg comany sucks!!!!
I bought my son a ps3 for Christmas from Newegg off of ebay. It does not work. It overheats everytime you turn it on, then turns itself off. I've emailed them numerous times, the only response was to send me a ad to buy insurance on it. Why should I buy anything more from them when their product never even worked in the first place!!! Terrible company, terrible business skills!!! DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM NEWEGG!!!!

The game station has no hard drive. A basic part of a game station and a part that shouldn't be sold separately.
No hard drive and as such it is a PS3 paperweight and nothing more now I will have to spend 20$ for a used one with only 120 gb or up 2 50$ for a newer one that's more then I was willing to spend on the console alone.

I mark it as a five stars cuz even thought the system is not reading discs it could be mod or jailbreak to play them through the hard drive
A very great system if it's just a CD drive that does not work but it is always recommended to purchase the system with just the issue on the CD Drive

Only way to go
The PS3 had a serious problem with overheating. Though most of the overheating issues came from owner neglect, Sony had to go back to the drawing board on this one. If you are electronically inclined, I would suggest only buying any Playstation used or for repair. You can buy these systems a day long for around $25, and fix them yourself. When it breaks, buy another one. Ultimately, you could spend your hard earned cash on a real system......any series XBOX will do.
