The PlayStation 3 is a real technological gem! It contains a Blu-ray disc player for films in high definition, a Cell processor, guaranteeing unbeatable gross calculation power, 4 USB ports, a high-resolution multimedia interface, a wireless network connection (WiFi), and a preinstalled 80 GB hard drive. But that?s not all! The PlayStation 3 also comes with USB, wireless and HDMI connections, which are ideal for HD televisions, and is compatible with several different types of memory cards, including Memory Stick, SD and Compact Flash. It can even read video files in MPEG-1, MPEG-2 (PS/TS), H.264/MPEG-4 and MPEG-4 SP formats, as well as audio files in ATRAC (.oma, .msa., .aa3), AAC (.3gp, .mp4), MP3 and WAV formats.

(The extended description mentions the 40Gb capacity model, but I think that it is just a case of copy'n'paste-itus)

-1 degrees already?

I bought a Condenser Tumble Dryer a few weeks ago (on a Sunday afternoon) from PixMania.co.uk.

Monday they e-mailed to tell me delivery would be the following day.

Three drivers working for Currys delivered it (on the day & between the hours quoted).

Free 5 year parts guarantee with Hoover included.

I've subsequently registered & received confirmation that my warranty period is active.

BFN,

fp.

EDIT:
-6 degrees... and falling.

I wish people would leave a comment why they vote cold.

EDIT:
-15...

Xbox 360 fans, perchance?

still prefer "my" amazon offer... come on little big planet

its unbelievable!.

Probably just windin up after the brick was removed.

Is the 500GB hdd 2.5" lol?

Would be great if it is, as you could stick it into the PS3 instead of the 80gb one///

Har Har Har! Just added heat and it's gone from -4 to plus 4. Considering the external disc would set you back £129 it looks a good deal if you want a networked hard drive.

good to see common sense prevail!

Rep added!

good spot, very tempting, trying to resist.

EDIT:
No, wait... back up to 64 again.

For the benefit of anybody else... click the [Games] tab, then "PS3".

When the page refereshes, hit the link for "Consoles (2)", then wait to click "PlayStation 3 Console 80 GB" at £281 (the first of the two listed).

When the item page is shown scroll down to the "Promo packs of PlayStation 3 Console 80 GB".

The deal listed here is the 4th item in the summarised list below.

BFN,

i gotta admit i hate pixmania, i orderd a digital slr camera, a few months back and counciled my order the next day, they decided to send the camera anyhow, take the money from my bank, so i refused the camera whenit arrived, it took them 3 weeks to get it back on there system, then another two weeks to refund me my money, then they took the money out for postage.

i would stay well away from this company

LOL now tell evry1 how to remove the vip and the other 26 quid charge for zen something: )

if anyone else has ordered, check your order tracking and see what the description is, ta.

Maybe to store the heaps of movie trailers & promotional game videos you can download from the PlayStation Store, or the digital copies of movies that have started to be included with the latest Blu-ray movies... or your MP3 collection... or anything from Mininova.com (or wherever).

It's optional to your on-board PS3 storage. You could always choose to offer the external drive for sale here at HotUKDeals & make the console even cheaper as a result.

BFN,

fp.

I know If I order they are not going to send Lacie. Then I got hassle of cancelling ps3 as I got 2 so this ps3 would be a spare but it's a good deal and your sorta getting ps3 for £160 if they send everything listed as they also got the ps3 with hdmi for the same price without lacie @288

I only bought it for the lacie

Good deal voted hot, but I've found Pixmania to be a nightmare to deal with. Tried to by a laptop, paid by credit card and then had to send two bills as proof of address; by the time they were happy to accept that I was who I said I was, the laptop was out of stock!!!!

ll be amazed if anyone gets the drive, its pretty clear its a mistake. Hope im proved wrong, be sure to reply here if you do/dont get it :thumbsup:

its clearly a mistake by pixmania. you might or might not get the drive but the headache of returning something like the ps3 is not worth the hassle. i recommend you order by phone.

don't order this, you won't get the drive, just spoke to pixmania

Well...
I'm looking for a PS3 and an HDMI cable.
So I'm thinking about buying this and selling the Lacie on for £80.

Kinda means I get a PS3 for £200 ish.

Did I see someone say they bought this just for the Lacie?
Wanna sell your PS3?
