“Good improvement”

Written on: 31/05/2013 by KnoxCraul419 (6 reviews written)

From the 2 this is a much better Playstation, the graphics have improved significantly, and so has the speed and precision. I love the fact that I can use it as a home network and have everything in the house connected to it, television, computer you name it, and everything is controlled from there, the space it has is more than enough to hold my music and movies, kids use it, wife uses it, and I use it, a great complete tool that functions as a game console as well as a home hub… Read Full Review

“PS3 breaks as warranty runs out!! AGAIN!!!”

Written on: 17/03/2013 by Bazz74 (1 review written)

Ok, I have bought 3 brand new PS3's over this last few years and everyone of them have broken down as the warranty has run out... This time my PS3 is 6 months out of warranty, and Sony PS3 tried to sell me some remanufactured console for £110. If I am forking out a few hundred quid for anything I expect it to last for a few years. That's my 3rd now so I do think Sony are taking the P. Now they want my broken PS3 for nothing yet charge me for some other dud so it can break down just over the… Read Full Review

“My Review On The Ps3”

Written on: 01/03/2013 by DezSanchez (2 reviews written)

I have had a Playstation 3 for about 2 years now. It is a great system to own and have! I play it about 10 hours a week and love every bit of it. I would highly recommend this system over a Xbox 360. Plus you don't even have to pay to play online! The system itself can take quite a beating as well! Hope this review helped!!!… Read Full Review

“Slim, quiet, works like a dream!”

Written on: 13/07/2012 by GeraldH (7 reviews written)

I bought the slim ps3 around a year ago in a package with FIFA12. I'm mightily impressed by all the extras you get with this, such as the blu-ray player (which has changed my life!) and the web video services like iPlayer and 4OD. I heard some people complain about the level of noise the machine makes when it's running, but to be honest I hardly hear it when the TV's sound is on. Since I bought I soundbar for my TV (which I would also recommend) I hardly hear the playstation at all. The… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/07/2009 by paulenew (35 reviews written)

Great system, not a bargain but great bang for the buck. BUT system lasted 2 days beyond it's warranty before bricking beyond repair after very modest number of hours use. Before it died, graphics and overall usability were great.

Would recommend PS3, but only with an extended warranty. Looking at google, reliability and build quality comes across as being little better than the infamouus XBOX360 (which I also owned for 1 year 3 months before it ate a disc and RROD'd simultaneously- maybe I'm… Read Full Review
