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. The one I got can't read some disks that I'm sure a new fat one could, disks with minor or almost non-existent damage. But most of the time it does, so I guess it's okay. The silver color is okay, I guess.
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. I had to open up the PS2 case reset the power button. While inside the case found the tab for the cd cover thankfully and super glued it on.
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.
Excerpt: We have this machine, this is our second one. The first one broke when it was knocked off the bottom shelf of our TV Stand. A total fall of about 3 inches. Broke the eye, and we had to replace the machine. All around good machine, but very easily breakable!!
Pros: Nice graphics in videos not in the gameplay. Good 1 player games it has a lot of games and the controller is cool
Cons: In the online gameplay it sucks try to play socom 2 online a lot of gliches and a horrible lagg ******* cheaters in the ps2 and the videolagg in some games such as Socom2 and resident evil outbreak and Damn it loads all the time no like the xbox this one
"After owning all 3 systems for 2 years, PS2 doesn't hold up."

Pros: Huge catalog of games. Vertical or Horizontal storage. Somewhat mediocre network play. Looks like the back of an 1980s stereo system.
Cons: A lot of lousy games. Most good games are ported to the other two systems anyway. Crazy expensive controllers and memory cards. DVD player is pretty low quality. Graphics can't hold up to GC or XBX.
