First of all, my Atari 2600 still works perfectly even though it was stored in a box in the garage without a lid for over 15 years. The fact that these Playstations don't last more then a few years is unacceptable.
Anyway, I didn't want to shell out any money for a new system. Besides, the new systems seem realy cheap. I love the look of the original "fat" models.
Everything worked perfectly the first time. Nothing beats the feeling of pushing the power button after final assembly and everything boots up perfectly.
The instructions did not match my PS3 perfectly even though my unit is NOT a slimline. However, it was close enough for me to figure it out.
