Summary: Overall it is a solid portable game machine. I would recommend this over the comparable psp go since you can both play both umd and downloaded games.
Pros: The obvious are the great games that are available. But the wi-fi capabilities make the psp a great way to keep up on the news, sports and the ability to download games without stepping out of your house. The screen contrast is much better than earlier models. The colors seem more vibrant.
Cons: The UMD drive door is not as robust as the 1000 model, but how else can you lower the cost from the original. The door does its job to keep the game secure though.
Summary: The Sony PSP elevates portable gaming to the next level, but its multimedia functionality falls short of its full potential.
Pros: Its a slick portable gaming system highlighted by an impressive wide-screen display and PS2-like graphics. It also boasts built-in Wi-Fi, a Web browser, and the ability to play music and videos, as well as to store images.
Cons: Its multimedia functionality is underwhelming, especially for video, requiring expensive memory cards. The load times on the UMD games can be excessive.
Summary: in general this product is awesome the one problem i had was the grip which i solved by getting a grip/battery pack separately which gives it more of a PlayStation control grip feel.
Pros: this product is great. the sound and video quality are excellent and the look of the console is sleek and modern.and fortunately it is built very well because i have already dropped my PSP twice and it still works great just a few minor scratches.
Cons: the only problem i have is that my hands begin to cramp after playing for a while because there isnt much to grip. obviously not designed for people with big hands.
Games, Music, Videos, and Internet in the palm of your hands!
