Both my launch day 60GB CECHA01 and Motostorm bundle 80GB CECHE01 are purring like kittens.
Although my 60GB is now packed away in its own box as I now have a Super Slim that is taking the brunt of the gaming now, and the 80GB is now the media center
I don't have a BC PS3 but I have a phat 40GB PS3 from 2007. It's still running good. I haven't put too much play time into it lately because I'm afraid it'll break before GTA V comes out.
