Unlike the bulkiness of its preceding model, this model has all of the bugs worked out. I have had it for over 2 years and not once have I had any problems with it. It has a lot of space for your gaming needs. No need to worry about the system over heating as the previous models of the generation were plagued by the yellow light of death. It remains cool throughout the course of your gaming and other entertainment. I highly recommend this model if you are considering purchasing a Playstation 3.
