    Old PS3 is basically dead; GPU boards are probably fried. I want another Sony product, and I'm thinking about the Slim. Anyone have any experience with it?

    I've got the Slim.

    Just the same as the other, I suppose. Looks a little better- but I don't like the no-gloss. Then again, it's better about no finger prints.

    It's really not much smaller, just not as tall. I think it's actually wider (front to back) than the original.

    I have both, never had a problem with my Slim. The slim is pretty much the same with less USB ports and no backwards compatibility and a little smaller.

    None of those issues bother me. I've heard of energy savings from the Slim, any notice of such?

    Massive energy saver. There is rumour they are releasing a lighter slim but I doubt it makes a difference (it's like .2 of a kg lighter)

    Alright, I'm sold. Now to find one, as they're near impossible to find for 299.99.

    Found one this afternoon, there was literally one in the backroom of a Target. I searched within 20 miles of Richmond, VA, and it was the only location that had one (out of Target, Gamestop, Bestbuy, and Sears). Crazy stuff.
