    Just sayin...two other versions of said game console with much better build quality. Extremely poorly finished machine.

    Can't say I agree with you.

    Phat unit had a nasty glossy finish, was huge, weighed a ton.

    Slim towards the end had the same components used in a super slim but the footprint is even larger than a fat. Perhaps the most premium feeling though, sure.

    There's not a thing wrong with the build quality of the super slim.

    I agree the initial PS3 was ridiculously heavy. However, the slim is still the one to go for. Super slim is a horrible design and cheaply made.

    Anyway, back on topic. I love cfw PS3s. They are a geeks dream.

    Out of necessity, really! I didn't bring my slim to Japan so decided to buy a super slim. They'd stopped selling new slims so I went for a super because used prices here are almost the same as new and I wanted the 1-year warranty. Also, online reports were that it was quiet(but, as you say, the BR drive gets noisy sometimes). Also#2, I used the points I got towards a second pad which saved me money.

    Ironically, my super slim has frozen 3-4 times since owning it(and overheated a few times) whereas my slim never crashed once. I hadn't considered thermal paste but I have some Arctic Silver so maybe it's high time for a cleanup. Although I'll heed your warning about the plastic.

    When it comes to racers, I'm definitely a 60fps fiend! Really wish I'd bought it on PS3 when it was available but I already had it on 360 and never considered the license expiring until it was too late.

    Thats really interesting as I've only played through MGS2 and 3 on mine but was at it for quite some time on both and in both times the machine surprised me at how silent/cool it remained. My Slim had never crashed either and was relatively quiet compared to say an OG Xbox but the SuperSlim is pretty much silent and the drive is the loudest part. What games made it crash?

    I hear ya and fear not, where there is a will there is a way Outrun is the main reason I want CFW actually as it just looks/plays so wonderfully on the PS3:

    My super slim hasn't overheated and I've owned one since early 2013, so 5 years. I am in Blighty though, maybe that helped.

    My Slim still working fine after six years, it's been proper hammered, left on for days at a time, and it was second hand when I bought it.

    With this type of stuff it's best to wait until they iron out the bugs, but if it adds in PS2 support and removes the region lock from PS1 games I'd be interested.

    @des have you ever redone the thermal paste on a slim including the heat spreaders before?
