"Great model for new gamers"
(Belfast, Northern Ireland)
I had concerns over a smaller, cheaper PS3 released so near the end of the consoles lifespan, but the superslim is a great console. The same basic internals as the slim, in a smaller, sleeker casing.
The flash memory responds just fine while loading and saving, the console itself is maybe a little louder than the Slim especially when reading the disc, but not annoyingly so.
The chasis is solid enough, nothing rattles or bends, the drive door is sturdy. Upgraded mine to 500GB using a basic WD hard drive and the mounting bracket, both of which you need to buy separately. The upgrade is hassle free, and gives you a full 500GB PS3 which performs as well as any of the other models.
I would recommend this particularly to anyone who hasn't owned a PS3 previously, it's more affordable but just as reliable.
