Any issues with the Super Slims? What's your guy's opinion of it? Is it loud?
I'm looking at getting the red GOW Legacy bundle Sunday

I just got a super slim and it is a bit louder than the last model.Sometimes you will hear some whirling whistle sound coming from it so I had it exchanged and it still has the same sound.It get really annoying when it start's up during game cutscenes.I think it might be the disc when it spins but when I quit the game ,open the disc tray and close it,the sound stops.

The first one i bought has this odd issue where the blu ray drive would spin up at like 10X normal speed the system would hard lock and need to have the plug pulled...returned it second ones been 100% fine and much cooler then the normal slim was.  I also noticed one other person who had the similar issue i did...i'm guessing perhaps the slightly cheaper plastic casing is more susceptible to damage in shipping perhaps? The unit as a whole is good though i like it.

I have the 250gb super slim and I don't have any problems with it. It seemed a little louder than my old 80gb fat system, but I dot even notice the noise any more. I never had the slim second generation ps3, but I have absolutely no complaints about my super slim.

I've had the artic white superslim for over 3 months and have had zero problems from it. It's not loud at all I dont know what people are talking about. 9 times out of 10 they don't even own a superslim.

Cognitive Dissonance - The ability to understand multiple viewpoints even if they conflict with one another - and still use critical thinking, logical thought, and common sense to come to the realization that only ONE is the correct one and the others are wrong.
