Hi all,

I have recently got the YLOD so have been hunting hard for a cheap replacement.

This is still not cheap enough for me, however I thought some of you may be interested in a new slim under £200.00.

Quidco also available and free delivery.

This is the cheapest 160GB Slim available from any UK retailer: google.co.uk/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=Sony+PlayStation+3+160GB+Slim#q=Sony+PlayStation+3+160GB+Slim&hl=en&tbs=p_ord:p&tbm=shop&prmd=ivns&ei=dbOkTYXRLJOo8AODvMG5Dw&start=30&sa=N&biw=1440&bih=785&fp=dcce6cf40d3e70fc

Thanks.

Hope the YLOD was not on a slim one, mine is coming up to its 12 month warranty.

No mate, a fat old 40GB one that I bought in late 2008. Still, very disappointing to happen. I feel robbed having to pay for a new PS3 which is why I am holding out for an absolute bargain!

Yeah, you really should be expecting it to last more than 2.5 years, I wished that Sony would have done the same as Microsoft and offer 3 years on the overheating YLOD problem, at least Microsoft addressed the error of their ways.

Have you attempted any reflow technique at all? Might be worth reflowing and then trading it in whilst it's working and getting a new one from GameStation or Game.

There was on here just before the weekend offers at Game/GameStation (both sold out now) on brand new old stock 80GB PS3 with 300 Blu Ray film bundle packs for just £149.

To be honest though, if you can reflow and get it working again,then getting shot of it and getting a more reliable slim would be your best bet.

At the weekend my 40gb actually was robbed, so I'm on the lookout for a cheap slim too. Just missed the last price war that Tesco started, so I might just hold tight for a while.
