Summary: The hardware is phenomenal considering what you pay for it! However also considering what you pay for it, I expect it to be flawless and my unit seemed to ship with a very annoying stuck pixel near the center that I just can't get to disappear.
Summary: I bought this in hopes to take to work when I work late nights. I also bought most of the release games as well for it. I really wanted a great handheld system, one that was powerful. At the time, I had a 3DS. Once this was released, and I got mine, I couldn't wait to start playing..
Summary: The vita I received was not functional. It didn't turn on so I'm not exactly sure how to rate this because I didn't get to enjoy it. Probably has nothing to do the product itself, but was left very disappointed. I'm going to get a replacement one in two days and I really hope that one works.

Summary: Wish i would've saved the money! Our internet is strong with every other device in our house but for some reason the Vita had trouble staying connected for the ps4. The button layout is less than impressive and took some time to get used to and never truely got the hang of
Don't buy it if you are expecting a great remote play experience.

Summary: Bought the Vita for remote play, but the lag is terrible. This is with local usage on the same network (PS4 wired and Vita on wifi). On top of that, you can't easily pair a Dualshock 4 to the unit without a tedious workaround.
Excerpt: Well,to start off I will say that over the years I have purchased the PSP 2000 and 3000 and I must say this Vita,although updated is not a big step forward in gaming technology...reason being is because the vita,while having many upgrades.
Pros: Camera,faster processing and hardwear is stronger and the PSP Vita is lighter than its ancestors

Summary: This is my first Vita Slim... I have a Fat and it has been working like a champ for years. Love the new slim, love the color but hate the wireless (radio) in the slim. I literally have my Vita within 4 feet of a cisco EA1200.... and show only 1 bar.
Summary: The Vita itself is a great system but the 3g version is a ripoff. The reason to buy this bundle would to be get a memory stick, a free game, and the ability to access 3g when and if you ever wanted. The problem with the bundle is that to get your "free" game you have to sign up for a month of 3g.
Summary: while the system itself is pretty incredible, the service that Sony provides is terrible. Never before have a dealt with so many rude and discourteous representatives. I bought a 32 gig memory card and proceeded to fill it with 32 gigs of games, all from the PS store.
