    Slim cos they don't get ylod as often as the phat ones

    I am probably totally wrong here (I don't own a PS3) but I would go for a slim. As far as I can tell it is an updated version so therefore it should be better, although I guess that isn't always the case.

    The only time I would purchase a fat console would be if it was second hand and very cheap.

    I own one of each, the only differences i can see are cosmetic.
    Wife prefers the big one though. (don't they all, lol)

    slim consumes less power but fat looks better.
    either way make sure you get atleast 80gb because i got the 40gb and now i need to upgrade it.

    fortunatly can get 320gb for £40 since sony dont block third party support like some other unethical company which for some reason people defend.

    And the troll is out in force again!

    I like the phat one as it matches my tv and its shiny :giggle: But really there aint much of a difference between them.

    since your comment doesnt relate to the post, i take it the troll your refering to is yourself.

    get the slim uses less power the fan never comes on in movies and its miles better

    It's difficult to get the fat one nowadays...
    I would go for the slim one unless you have the option of getting launch 60gb model..(Looks nicer to me, card reader, 4 USB port, Linux)

    Currently have 2 60gb versions (1 Jap & 1 UK)

    slim, esp if you have a sony tv cos you can take advantage of the bravia sync feature. also the fan is much quieter all the time and as stated before, is a more reliable system. also, you would be best to get the 120gb version and upgrade straight away to a 320gb hard drive, if not a 500gb, as long as money isnt a huge constraint

    Where do you get the figures that they are more reliable?

    The bigger PS3 is linux capable.

    My fat ps3 makes no noise, well I don't notice it, unless u have it locked in some cupboard where its struggling so therefore would need to use the fans more

    I have a Phat...Not 'upgrading' to a slim either...I think it looks better than the slim.

    I think the Phat is better. It has support for installing Linux, and it looks much better I've been trying to buy one second hand, but I don't want to spend more than like £130
