Well the the fat PS2 has an expansion slot for a harddrive... But, not many games use this harddrive so its not a big deal...  I didn't like that I had to install a ps2 network card and tighten with a coin, lol...

 

So yes, besides it being small the slim ps2 is a great gaming machine and especially for the casual gamer that doesn't want to spend a fortune..

I only have the fat PS2 but I like the slim PS2 better because its smaller and doesn't take up as much space.

I have both fat and slim PS2. I like the slim better because it runs quieter and takes up less space. The fat PS2 is a few years old and is starting to show its age.

The slim is best right now because most fat systems have been showing their age alot lately.

I have found the slim PS2 to be a more reliable console, but I still prefer the thick PS2 as far as aesthetics go.

Never owned a slim version, but I'm with Zeker.

PS2 fat, because you can do homebrew on it without having to mod it to play burned disks, this is of course, if you have a Codebreaker and a spare PSOne disk you never play lying around.

Either one as long as it works. I liked them both for different reasons.

I had both versions and I prefer the original as compare to the slim.  It's true the slim had the power supply outside the console and you have to manually load the disks but it had a build in network card. The original had a slot for a hard drive and power supply within the console case. I had found the original PS2 to be more complete. Besides it looks more like a thick laptop computer especially when I attach a PS2 screen to it.  You can't do that with a slim.
A machine, no matter how advance it might become, is only as good as the programmers behind it.
