Sony PlayStation 3 Slim 120GB

 

How does Sony's new svelte PS3 measure up?

HDMI 1.3a, S/PDIF and standard PlayStation A/V connections on the rear still handle output to your TV and sound system, while we get Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11g Wi-Fi for connecting to your router and on to the Internet. On the front we're down to two...

Sony PS3 Slim review: 3D and Blu-ray update

 

Now with 3D gaming and Blu-ray, is the PS3 Slim the ultimate home entertainment device?

Sony PS3 Slim

 

Leaner and fitter for the fight, this is the best PS3 yet, and a decent alternative to a standalone BD player

As impressively flexible as ever, but now sleeker and quieter than before; more storage space than older models; now outputs bitstream HD audio

Still not quite the equal of a dedicated BD player

Sony PS3 Slim review

 

The Sony PS3 Slim's got more hard drive, for less money. Time to trade in your old PS3?

Gorgeous design ; Blu-ray player ; Smart online extras

Xbox 360 beats it for games ; Loses some features from PS3 Chunky

The price is right, and so is the size, hard drive and Blu-ray playback. Time for late adopters to buy a PS3

Sony PlayStation 3 Slim review

 

The new PlayStation 3 (PS3) is an amazing piece of technology.

The Slim is an amazingly powerful media centre, game console and web client, with great format support - all in all, a superb buy.

Sony PlayStation 3 Slim review (160GB, 320GB)

 

Sony's remodeled PlayStation 3 Slim (originally 120GB; now available in 160Gb and 320GB models) dropped a couple of dress sizes and a few quid off the price of its predecessor, the original PlayStation 3.

As Blu-ray players go, the original PS3 was competitively priced. With a slimmer profile, lower price and lower power consumption, the PlayStation 3 Slim (120GB) is arguably the one to beat. Factor in games, social networking features such as...

Sony PlayStation 3 Slim review

 

The slim-line Sony PlayStation 3 Slim (120GB) bundles the top-notch features of the earlier PlayStation 3 into a smarter, sleeker package.

Expert review by : Lucy Orr (reghardware.co.uk)

Sony PS3 Slim

 

A quiet and compact powerhouse of a console, hampered by a limited range of quality titles and no backward compatibility with PS2 games.

Has Sony redeemed the PS3 brand? Regardless of the previously stated drawbacks, and the triumph of image over substance, the fact is that the PS3 Slim costs half of what the original PS3 cost when it first launched. It is also smaller, quieter and...

Sony Playstation 3 Slim Next-generation Blu-ray capable games console

 

I think it's safe to say that there is an undercurrent of condescension against using a games console to play back Blu-ray Discs in a "serious" home cinema environment. The thinking, I suppose, goes that a games machine couldn't possibly compete with...

Untampered-with 1080p output means video quality from 1080p BDs is nearly as good as we could hope for, Incredibly responsive to user input, Edge adaptive upscaling of SD content can produce distinctively superior results, depending on the content,...

PAL Film Mode detection is not infallible - jaggies can rarely occur with PAL movie content, No on-board deinterlacing of (rare) 1080i content, Remote control accessory is an optional extra, as this is a games console

Excellent
