Re: Have you had a refurbished PS3?

Can you still collect trophies on the games you had on the original PS3? I've not been able to experience this yet because of the freezing issue, I've got trophies I already got even after sync with server.

Re: Have you had a refurbished PS3?

My refurb is almost 7 months old, never had a problem with it and it's quieter than the original one. I was very glad I took out Cont Play when my original 60gb popped last year after 2.5 years of service...

I am on my first refurb machine my original launch day 60Gb died from a power supply failure so sony replaced it like for like free of charge with a refurb unit. It has worked perfectly now for a little longer than a year apart from leap year day thing. However as others have said i did notice the cooling fans do seem to come on more often and are louder than i remember my original being. I thought maybe this was because it was winter and the house is warmer with my heating being on constantly but it seems to be the case all year round. I dont know much about protected saves but if you upgrade your hard drive and your PS3 fails surely when it goes back to SONY you can remove YOUR hard drive and put the original back in and then put your upgrade drive with all your saves etc on it into your replacement machine? would this solve this issue?


Sadly not - the PS3 will format the HDD unless it's replaced into the same machine you took it out of. :smileysad:

Mate, 4 replacements in 3 years. The last one has lasted 2 weeks.

 

 

The quality of refurb must be getting worse.

Re: Have you had a refurbished PS3?

I had three refurbished ps3s, the first got YLOD after 2 months, the 2nd got YLOD fter 2 months and with the third the blu ray drive broke after 2 months. I gave up and bought a slim which i believe is 2 yrs old.

Re: Have you had a refurbished PS3?

My PS3 stopped reading disks 5 months ago. I paid the A$250 and since then I've had 3 refurbs die (YLOD). The original lasted ok, but these refurbs are hopeless, will be asking for my money back come morning.
