PS3 Slim

 The PS3 Slim comes with a 120 GB capacity and built in Wi-Fi connectivity. There are 2 USB ports which will come in handy when you want to plug in some external storage devices or charge the Bluetooth wireless controller. It maintains the same Profile 2.0 Blu-ray player and it supports playback of file formats such as MPEG-1, MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 videos taken from disc based media or USB. You can also view pictures in the JPEG format and there is even a slideshow feature. The PS3 has the capacity of acting as a digital media hub and this means you can stream the content from any network device which is DLNA compatible. Aside from all these features, there is also a built in internet browser.


On the back of the Sony PS3 Slim you shall find an Ethernet port, one HDMI out, a proprietary AV output and an optical digital audio output. When you buy the PS3 Slim, you will get an AV cable which is shipped together with the unit. One aspect that may disappoint people is the fact that the PS3 Slim does not come with any additional features from its predecessors. An IR receiver would have been nice. The truth is that when it comes to this gaming console, everything is pretty much focused on design.

The Slim is 36% lighter and 33% smaller than all the other PSs before it. It is believed that the matter texture of the new Slim gives the device a rather cheap aspect but the truth is, there is always going to be something appealing about the looks of a PlayStation, no matter if the coating is glossy or matte. And besides, you remember how glossy finishes are a real fingerprint magnet.


The master power switch has been replaced and instead of turning the device on an off from a button located on the back, there is a new button placed on the front side. Inside the unit, pretty much everything has to be redesigned since Sony wanted to make a thinner and lighter device. The new PS3 Slim is capable of loading Blu-ray discs at exactly the same speed and performance as the regular PS3.

It is true that the PS3 Slim lacks quite a lot of features that a true passionate would have loved to find but think about the fact that the Slim is half the price of the regular PS3 and this is the coolest thing ever because it has become a gadgets that a lot of people could afford. It is also the coolest thing ever because it is quieter, smaller and it comes with all the important features of the regular PS3.
