Slightly Less Reliable Than Fat Version

P.J. Kennedy, Amazon
11 January 2014
  • Summary: The PS2 is somewhat notorious for mechanical failure, so it stands to reason the slim versions with less protection on the lazer-reader would be more susceptible. I picked up a used copy, not too beat up.

Came damaged

Jessica M. Taylor, Amazon
6 January 2014
  • Summary: When the PS2 came in it was obviously dropped and damaged. The power button was sunken in and case was seperated at the power button. Also the tab for the cd cover that tells the Playstation it is closed was missing so it would not start up any games. I highly doubt this model was tested.

  • Summary: it is kinda scratched but works fine. I don't like the fact that it showed pictures of a controller and cords but only received console. so I gave it 3 stars

Correct photos?

Anonymous, Newegg
3 May 2007
  • Summary: The title newegg shows for this product is a Recertified Slim PSTwo, but all the photographs they show are of the original model PS2. Clarification would be nice.
  • Pros: The PS2 has a great selection of games.
  • Cons: Can only output 480i and 480p resolutions.

User Review

Mr. F., Newegg
2 April 2006
  • Pros: Slim, easy to store, great game selection, much better design than the original PS2
  • Cons: One major design flaw, the power supply can't handle the wattage, it over heats and melts the power supply and sometimes the motherboard, if you use the power cord that came with the slim PS1, it won't overheat.

Playstation 2

Axel, Amazon
15 August 2005
  • Summary: Out of the the current consoles, I think the Playstation 2 falls right at the end. It's not a bad console, mind you, I've had a lot of fun playing on it, but I think that the Gamecube and Xbox might be more worthwhile in the end.

Lots of Fun but not at all durable

K. McDermed, Amazon
22 December 2004
  • Summary: We bought this system less than a year ago. After about 3 months it stopped playing the games. We had it repaired, luckily it was still cvered by the warranty. Now, about 6 months later it is doing the exact same thing. Now it's nothing more than a $200 (what we paid for it) papaer weight.

Average, nothing too special

R.J. Watts, Amazon
23 October 2004
  • Summary: Everyone is always saying PS2 is the best system out there, so I'm going to start with the downside of buying a PS2. First, after you buy one, they come out with a smaller edition. Second, the controllers are a bit flimsy. Third, buying a memory card.

Cheap PS-2

Michael L Hensley, Amazon
10 September 2004
  • Summary: Did not work as well as the standard PS-2 unit. This unit is subject to over heating, make sure you have a air flow on this unit. Bought this to replace a unit that was just wore out from constant playing with 4 kids. I have a fan on it constantly and it will not play dvds like the old one did

good but xbox is better

Nick (GothicSlayr) Butler, Amazon
10 September 2004
  • Summary: gamecube, ps2, and xbox are all great systems and they all have their good points and their bad. ps2 has the most games but lacks in power. gamecube has only medium power and only medium amount of games. and xbox has not as many games but is a power house.
