To open new ps4 or not to open new ps4 - cuh 1216 model

As a Jedi rabbit style ( but not quit as bad), obsessed with fan noise gamer I took the plunge to buy a new cuh 1216a model ps4 today. As someone (like Jedi) who's been through a fair few in search of a quiet console I'm hoping this new model will be quiet. However once the box is open that's it. There's no going back.

So I'm asking the forum, is this model the console I'm hoping for or do the fans ramp up and become noticeable. I sit approximately 6 feet away from where the console will be. Are the fans as intrusive when watching a Blu Ray? As the older models were loud doing this.

Is the overall improvement big enough because I'm not going to sell/take back or get rid once this box is open! I play mostly at night with low volume on the TV. I have a xb1 and can not here it at all from where I sit so I'm hoping this ps4 will be the same.

Any feedback would be good.

Is 'Jedi Rabbit Style' the long awaited follow up to Psy's K-Pop Gangnam Style?

And some say he can tell the difference between Witcher 3 and Bloodborne just by listening to the fan...

Yes! my name now has a meaning.. shell i Jedirabbit (return a console because of noisy fan)

 

But back to the op, i've had a few of the new 1216a models and they do seems alot quieter than the older models but ive had 1 that was just the same also. But they do run much hotter than the older models, which i think is normal for the new 1216 models.

 

You'll all going to laugh here.. returned a nice quiet one yesterday just because the shop has a better cheaper deal and i needed to get it. I brought last week a ps4 with Minecraft and LBP3 for £339, i returned to the store got a refund and brought Destiny taken king bundle (a game i really wanted but didn't fancy the £50+ tag) for £299, leaving me £40 to buy Forza 6 which i was going to get anyway.

haven't played my new console yet due to blooody massive updates, hopefuly its just as quiet.

@JediRabbit - Did you return it to the same store with the same girl? What reason did you give for returning the console this time? What was the reaction of the missus? How many Xbox Ones have you been through? I need more details of this gripping series

lol.. like i said i returned it because it was cheaper by £40 and it had a £60 game i wanted included, i though i'd try my luck and returned it. they Just gave me a gift card as they didn't have any in stock, and brought it from another store nearby. (it was''t from the same store as the girl who knows me now.. think thats a no go for a while) miss's couldn't belive it, even she's getting pee'd off at me now :Shame:

But i see this more as fighting the system, i can't belive it was £339 with 2 shocking games and then the next week a cheaper better deal!

 

Now my only problem is.. after installing a few games via disk with no problems, intill the last disk i put in caused some weird vibrating from the disk drive whilst installing it? i lifted the console off the shelf and it stopped, i placed it on the floor and it stopped, i put it back on the shelf and it was vibrating again, if i moved it just a bit by sliding it backwards or forwards it stopped till it was still then vibrating again? i have pads under each corner so the console isn't vibrating on the shelf, not sure what caused that to happen. i stopped the install and turned off to watch the footie and tried again after, and it worked fine???  just like in this video i found online

https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=42&v=jqhU5LP5_uU

 

question is do i return?, even tho i think this has happend loads of times on a big % of consoles i have had. but this is what goes through my mind.. will it fail down the line, i should get it replaced before it does fail... think i need help.

 

oh and the xb1 is working fine.. not that im that bothered by it as the Ps4 is my prized possession. it just bloody slow compaired to ps4 to those that moan about downloads on ps4

 

 

Edit... inb4 Karma's a *****!
