Excellent replacement after the old one fried,
This review is from: PlayStation 2 Console Slim - Black (Video Game)I bought one of the old PS2 systems when it came out and it worked very well. It was my DVD player as well as my video game console. When I went on vacation I accidentally left it on and it fried. After five good years of service, it finally died.
I had to buy a replacement and so I bought the slimmer version. It works just as well as the other one did and takes up a lot less space on my TV stand. It plays all my games and my DVDs, so I am very satisfied with this Sony product.
I refuse to buy a PlayStation 3 just because I refuse to spend a great wad of cash for a video game console. And with the new Black and White PS3 systems that are being released in November which do not feature PlayStation 2 compatibility, I don't see why I should buy a PS3 right now when it means I'd have to keep my PlayStation 2 just to play my PS2 games is pointless.
If you're looking for a good game system for a low price, buy the PlayStation 2, it's very good... Read more

Excellent Console for the money ....,
This review is from: PlayStation 2 Console Slim - Black (Video Game)Wow ... I was amazed at the size of this console. It's about the size of a trade paperback book, and actually weighs less (1.3 lbs)... in other words it's very small. I purchased the $4.99 upright base from Amazon and I can hardly see this black PS2 across my room.
The network adapter on the PS2 and network startup disk that is included, worked perfect and was very easy to follow. For me, I just purchased a 50' CAT-5 ethernet from Amazon ($11.50)and ran it along my baseboards from my DSL router to the PS2 and had things up and running in about 10 minutes.
I am very pleased with this console's quality and functionality, the selection of PS2 games, and the nice selection of on-line games available. I would highly recommend this console and gaming system for those on a budget and anyone for that matter! Enjoy!

A hint to the clueless,
This review is from: PlayStation 2 Console Slim - Black (Video Game)For all of you clueless adults out there: you must purchase a memory card or the kids can't save their games and have to start over from the very beginning, which can be tedious. My daughter played continuously for hours on end, sleepy-eyed even in the day or so following Christmas (before we purchased a memory card), simply because when she turned the game off, it would be lost forever. Save your children. Buy a memory card.
