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.
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: 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
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.
A great selection of games and all but its the system itself

Summary: The PS2 has incredibly good games and the biggest library of all the consoles but as my title says, it is the system itself that needs some help. The PS2 requires more patience and you've got to do more to take care of it! What I'll start out with first are the graphics.
Summary: I am actually 13, but my ... computer won't handle the login page, sooo here goes: I have played the PS2, PS1, N64, NES, and am a huge gameboy fan. I live in the middle of nowhere, and have no life. i have plenty of time to think about this.
Summary: As I scroll thru the vast quantities of reviews I can think of but one thing "How can people be honestly reviewing a system that hasn't been released in America yet?". One bit of info alot of the other reviewers are not mentioning is the fact that they are playing on a imported Japanese version.
PS2 Slim: a welcome update to the world's most popular console
9 January 2011
Excerpt: Compared to the original Playstation 2, this is absolutely tiny, with barely enough space on the front face to house the two sets of controller and USB ports. Much of the downsize is down to Sony moving the power-supply to a laptop-esque external unit.
Pros: Built in network ports, Free only gaming with selected games, sleek design
Cons: top - loading tray, no hard drive expansion, the Xbox has better graphics
Summary: Pro's Still being made. reasonable size game selection sort of don't let the fanboys fool you. controller good for driving games not so good for fps imo. moddable I cons over priced when it first came out & now for it's age it still is. most games are crap or lag offline like a wet dog.
