My best performing PS3 model is the 160GB PS3 Slim (in which I own) and it plays with no malfunctions or circuiting.

Best Performing? 

 

Well, I can tell you this... 

 

I got the Motor Storm Bundle with an 80GB PS3 with 4 USB, Multi-Media Ports, & BC Compatible... 

 

It lasted way longer then a lot of Slim Models, this was up till 2011, I think it was... 

Whenever the Hack was done, this was when my PS3 Broke... 

 

I kept it in really good shape, too... But I Played it all the time, it never got Hot, 

or over heated until the Year it broke in... But compared to how much Playtime I 

put into that thing, it could have lasted for quite a few more Years... Considering 

how much of the day, weeks, & Years, I spent on it... 

 

My Friends PS3 is a launch 60GB, & still works today... 

But they usually only use it on Weekends at night... 

That I know of... 

 

Point is, the Fat Models can do much more, & last much longer then other Models... 

at the cost of HDD Space... Which can easily be swopped out anyways... 

 

My Current PS3 does overheat however, but same Model as the old 80... 

Upgraded HDD, works like brand new, & still has BC Compatibility, =D 

 

-------------------

 

However, this is why I feel the PS3 Fat Models are much better then Slim 

& Super Slim Models, but I also understand not everyone shares the same 

life cycle... So maybe others haven't had such great luck, I dunno... 

 

Basically, from my Point of View, if a Fat Model is able to run for this long 

without issues, & is well kept in good condition, such, & such... It should 

most deffinately be the winner here, we all know the Slim wasn't out for as 

long as the Fat was, so we should also take that into Consideration, too...

I have the Slim 160 gb and I really like it. I saw a noise comparison on youtube between all 3 Ps3's and the slim even after 3 hours running was so quiet. The super slim not as quiet. I really need a bigger hard drive though.

True Slim was quiet... =D 

 

 But I also think that if a Fat Model can last all they till Next Gen, then their Life Cycle is pretty good for what it is, 

especially if it can last even longer then that, oO

From what I know off of video demonstration, the PS3 (Slim) Edition would seem to be the quietist but in terms of raw power their all the same apart from one might have more GB space than the other for storage.

The fat model was an evolution of gaming systems.. (First with bluray, easy touch power button, ect.).. But at the same time it had the most problems, The temp sensor on my fat went bad so the fan was always at full blast an **bleep** was it loud.. so I traded it for the 160gb slim, an though its cheaply made it is more reliable then the fat..

Get any of the slim models. Avoid the Original models at any cost.
