Which slim is better 120gb or 250gb

I know both are the same in terms of features apart from the hard drive size of course. Apart from that, is there any other major difference i.e. performace, noise, etc.

 

Please reply as I looking to get a slim this weekend.

There's that chap T-e-X trolling around that the 250GB are superior... :/

idk if that's true or not but any slims are more reliable than a 60GB fatty right?

You mean, some guy from a website saying they are superior, and then Tex copied and pasted it ??? :smileyvery-happy:

There is no difference between the 120gb and 250 gb slim. However  there is a big difference between the 60gb and the slim, which you can google yourself, and yes the slims are more reliable.

The 120Gb is better obviously, it has the lower number !

issues aside of if the 250 gets the quieter fan, a HDD which is twice the size for an extra £30 is a bit of an easy question I think :smileyhappy:

 

may never use the extra space, but you'll be kicking yourself if you ever fill the 120Gb up?

* YLOD? * *PSN Connection Problems?* *Blu Ray Problems

And we weren't even testing for that.. :Thumbs:

Re: Which slim is better 120gb or 250gb

a few weeks ago my wife got gamestation to replace our faulty, out of warranty 60GB with a new console, they gave her a 250GB slim. There are two things that I've noticed (that are slightly annoying), 1, the disc drive makes a lot of mechanical noise when inserting/ ejecting a disc. 2, when the console is first turned on and after it's turned off it makes a cracking noise, the kind any plastic cased unit like a tv or dvd player might make when cooling down. But like I said, this happens when it's first switched on, so that's a bit worrying.
Otherwise though I'm pleased with it. Also the slim works with the anynet feature on my tv, which the 60GB didn't, but I'm not sure if that's something to do with the 3.0 update.

Both are the same except HDD space.

 

Bundles are better with the 250GB console though.

Avoiding GAME/Gamestation.
Ripoff prices, poor value on trade ins and shoddy customer service.
Latest trade in comparison, Mario Kart Wii with Wheel:
GAME offered a measely £8
HMV offered a huge £25.
