Summary: What I like about this Playstation is the need for the bulky external power supply has been eliminated. The power cord plugs into the console directly to avoid excessive clutter. I use my AV/component video cable I bought from Game Stop to get the best picture because the one that came with the unit doesn't always produce the brightest image. I've had good luck with it so far in other respects as far as game performance, memory card and controller functionality.
Summary: As far as how the PS2 Slim works, no problems at all. After reading the instuctions I thought some of that information should be shown before people buy it. The big thing is that most of the accessories for the Original PS2 are not compatible with the PS2 Slim. Otherwise it is nice to have a game system that is so small in size. Overall quality is very good.
Summary: Much slimmer re-design of the original PS2. Nicely portable and sleek. Packed with one controller only and none of the essential accessories. You will need to buy a memory card separately ($20-$30) to save and continue games. And the screw-in stand pictured on the box is NOT included in the package, so the console must lie flat.
Summary: So far so good. Got this for Christmas. Packaging is a little confusing. Shows picture of console on stand, back says that Stand is an option. No stand. Picture on box also shows controller. Back says controller is an option. Controller is included. When you push the power button to turn off power, it goes into sleep mode, but doesn't turn off power, so you need to unplug it each time. Functionality has been fine. No problems.
Never over ehated, no problems, amazing graphics still for the size of the console

Excerpt: Liek many people back in 2000 I bought my original playstation 2 as it was released for £400...a hefty price, but worth it I thought. I was looking forward to seeing what it could do as I had had my PS1 for over 5 yrs (quite long in console terms). I bought it home and the first game I stuck on was Kessen a war startegy game based in feudal japan and already I could see the graphics were amazing.
Excerpt: The playstation 2 is a great console, however now its big brother the playstation 3 beats it. There are several things that I didn't like about the playstation2, firstly the method of putting in DVDs or Games etc is quite fragile and on the first 2 console I got the clips in the centre broke and they had to be returned within a month (maybe I just got some from a faulty batch). The third one however has been working really well for 4 years now.
Excerpt: Sony PlayStation 2 Slim Console (PS2) I first got a PS2 around four years ago, Back then I bought it for £250 with nine games and two controllers. It was a good deal back then but now the console is only around £90. I can't remember all the games that came with the console as I have lost the Box and I sold most of the games as I have a Xbox 360 and a PlayStation 3 now so I dont play the PS2 anymore. PlayStation 2 Slim Console...
