Great system until it broke & Sony refuses to fix it.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: We bought this PS3 when they originally came out. It was brand new in the box and it worked great until just a few months ago when the games would start freezing. Now we can't play blu rays or anything on it. We called Sony to see if they could replace or repair it and they will but it would cost almost as much as a new one. I wouldn't recommend buying one of these unless you feel like replacing it yearly.
Playstation 3 Would be wonderful if it always worked

Excerpt: Wow talk about a rush, the Playstation 3 can bring hours of heart pounding enjoyment. Now if only it were reliable. I have owned every playstation. They have had the most inovative graphics around. But this Playstation 3 appears to be a bust for your buck. Everyone has heard of someone who's Playstation has zonked out on them. Well guess what here is a gaming mommy who is not, I repeat NOT a happy camper. I saved and saved to get my son the top dog.
"Stopped reading any disc and bad Sony's cust service"
26 November 2010
Pros: Stunning video quality output, awesome sound, gaming experience, wifi, almost everything except it stopped reading game, blu-ray and dvd discs.
Cons: stopped reading any discs(after 8 mo), some blu-ray disc are slow to load (when it was working) and cannot use any other universal programmable remote (like Logitech Harmony) except its PS3 remote that you to buy separately. Customer support sucks!!!
"Considering a PS3? Don't, Your Disc Drive WILL Break!"

Pros: The PS3 is a tempting package: it?s a Blu-Ray / DVD player, web browser, multimedia streamer, and gaming machine. Over two years I have enjoyed the multimedia functions.
Cons: Avoid the PS3. Your disc drive will break within 2.5 years and Sony will charge you $155 Canadian to get it fixed.Out of the 4 friends who have bought the PS3, 3 of their disc drives are defective!
Excerpt: My husband got this for his X-mas/B-day present. And unfortunately, it has taken over. He has tried to find games that would interest us both, but they don't come on this player. From what I have seen this a great boy-toy, but otherwise, not much fun. Even running a blu-ray is overly complicated.
The Playstation 3 mini doesn't play all playstation games.

Excerpt: Well the Playstation 3 is something I wanted to get for my son. However I knew that they would come out with a smaller version. Espeacially since the thing was monsterous. So I waited, and waited, and waited. Finally after telling everyone that it would come sooner or later here it came. So I buy it and guess what, only the game that came in the boxed set would work on it. I tell you what my son was so mad that the thing would play his games he already had.
Cons: Machine breaks Sony supports in bad faith Beware if they say they will fix for free Once they have the machine, they then tell you that the seal is boken or something else puts it out of warranty and you have to pay or they will send it back to you.
Pros: improved power consumption, less noise are good
Cons: Eliminating LINUX install capability was dumb. LINUX enabled use of the console for full-featured internet browsing, email, messaging, newsreading, video download appliance. The console could be useful beyond its gaming features -- unlike the Xbox
Pros: Fan noise drives us crazy. Heat is awesome. You can feel it.
Cons: Integrate WiFI, Bluetooth, IR and regular 250G harddrive as part of PS3. These components are reasonable prices but remove all the hassle, connectors, wiring, harder to troubleshoot and installation, etc.
