Re: Any problems with PS3 Super Slim?

Dec 14, 2012

I've owned mine, that I purchased in a holiday bundle, for a month now, played it nearly everyday after i get out of work, or longer on my days off. My xbox is giving me dirty looks of jealousy.

But I havent experienced a single issue so far. I do mean that, not once. 

 

Only complaint I have is the drive door seems kinda flimsy, or cheap, but doesnt effect anything. Also maybe the fact that it is a little loud when loading something for like a split second.

 

It really does work great for me. So hopefully you will have as good of an experience with it as I have had with it so far.

 

No lagging, no freezes, no issues with playback or gameplay. Its been a good investment I think.

mine is working like a champ since last weekend, since then its been turned on downloading gigs of gigs and some game play (uncharted 3, gta:sa, Mass Effect)
Compared to my fat model (40GB) this one reads disc faster and runs cooler, overall just much better performance
ps: i have it with a 500GB @7.2K rpm HDD that i had it on my fat ps3 as well

Had mine since end of October and it has been flawless. I have done some long gaming and also downloads with zero problems. Is a little louder than my other 2 consoles but seems to run the coolest. Good luck and welcome

For anyone's PS3 Super Slim is freezing, it's more than likely due to the CPU/GPU overheating. More than likely the GPU though. If you have the know how on how to replace thermal paste, take apart the system and look at the thermal paste job Sony did. I guarantee it will suprise you.

I have had mine for two weeks now and I have had the freezing problem when cutting too scenes and I have had to reset the system a couple of times... But nothing else apart from that.

the ps3 super slim has a SERIOUS DESIGN FLAW , it runs extremely hot and the fan bacically always  runs on a low speed just like when xbox 360 first came out . but they fixed that ,i know because i had a refurbished 360 and it ran cool in comparison to super slim      to make matters worse no add on cooling fan is made for super slim !!!  at  least  microsoft always allowed  other companies to make 

add on cooling fans  . not  that  it would solve the problem with super slim but  i think it would help. 

 

i have owned almost ever game console ever made starting with the atari , i have never been more disapointed with a console.

 

the super slim will make sony alot a money in service dept . most super slims will start to have problems about the time the ps4 is released , in a  year  or so.

Do you have proof? Because my Super Slim runs 40*F Cooler than my CECHE01 (80Gb Motorstorm bundle) PS3.... using an infrared temperature gun.
And no, the issue with the Xbox weren't because of the fan speed being low... it was an actual design flaw, the fans had nothing to do with it, how do you think there were so many of those X-Mod thing, that allowed for better cooling, fixed it? 
Add-on cooling fans were NEVER allowed by either Sony or Microsoft. If you bothered to read the EULA, Warranty and other legal documentation, both M$ and Sony state that it external add-on cooling devices will void that warranty as they actually inhibit the actual intake/exhaust of the consoles own cooling system and also the ones that use the consoles power supply and USB ports for power caused more problems than it solved.... The only reason why they are more common on the Xbox is because of the misconception that all Xbox's overheat. Which is simply not true.

Sounds like personal problem.

Thats a matter of opinion.

Do you even have any proof of these wild claims? I mean.... you did just register on the forum and this is your only post.... Please, provide proof if you're going to make these claims.
