I picked up a fat ps3 last night and im ecstatic to have it, but its SOOOOO slow and I haven't had a ps3 in a while to remember if thats just the console or if there may be an issue with the older hardware. How reliable are they? Should I look into returning it and keeping my eye out for a slim or super slim?[/font]
Edit 1: Not at home right now to check but looks to be a CECHKxx.
Edit 2: So I returned the 80GB and got a 500GB Super slim, This thing is disgusting, the tray doesnt close all of the way and the women forgot to give me the charging cable so im stuck using a ps4 controller for right now. Called the store and got put on a waiting list for a Slim model to replace this one. So far....Not worth 139.99

I traded in my 360 for a 40 GB PS3 and it's working great so far. Dunno how much it's been used before. But I've heard those with 4 USB slots are the best. Those models also have backward compatibility. They're hard to come by though.
