Excellent product, but the DVD-ROM drive dies suddenly.
I owned two PS2 units, one of them 1st gen, the other 2nd gen... and both of them performed really nice... until the day in which the DVD-ROM simply stops recognizing the game disk. In the case with my first PS1, the drive just died, period (no disk was playable whatsoever). The second one, the drive was able to play certain disks, but suddenly it would lose grip of the disk, and the disk would start making weird noises while spinning + the game would freeze in the middle of a scene. Very annoying, as it does not let you save before it does that... What is remarkable in the case with the dying drive is the actual timing. The drives died on me after exactly 1 year and 2 months of use. Meaning, exactly when the warranty was up! Repairing the console would cost you almost as much as buying yourself a new one... If I was a person who believed in conspiracy theories, I was going to think that Sony put some kind of "time bomb" chip in the drive, to invalidate it, to force the user to buy a new console... Umm!!! Anyway, I think the PS2 is a great platform, especially content-wise. At the time it was also the quality leader out there, hands down. Also I love the Sony brand and it pains me to give such a low rating to their flagship product. But their technical issues cost me a lot of money so Sony Corp. does need to get their act together in order to remain competitive. If you are interested in buying a PS2, maybe you will never have problems like the ones I had, but then again, what are the odds of having two brand new consoles die on the same person in the exact same way, after the exact same amount of time of moderate usage? Buy at your own risk, and consider yourself warned.
The system and wireless controller worked, but the 2 wired controllers were busted. I had extra controllers already do not a huge issue. The system itself works, as do the other accessories included (dvd remote, extra memory card)

A Great System That Plays the Games I Love
Truth be told, the only reason I got this system for myself (and later for my Dad) is that we both really like the two major games from the Kingdom Hearts series, and this is the console that plays them. Even so, the PS2 system is the processing foundation that allows these terrific games to realize their potentials, with excellent graphics and neat controls for those games. The gaming experience is further accentuated by increasingly complex backgrounds, animations, and fighting techniques in the Kingdom Hearts discs' programming, which of course means that the Playstation 2 must be able to coordinate some very complicated sets of dynamic code quickly and with fluid grace. I can't say how well LIVE-ACTION characters are portrayed by this system, but I can say that for CARTOON characters the Playstation 2 delivers everything I could've asked for. On the critical side, I think I should say that I've experienced some camera control frustrations in the games I've played, but they were by no means crippling, and I don't know if they persist throughout most games the PS2 supports. I currently have no desire to "upgrade" to a more modern system, as I'm having all the fun I want with my games and standard DVD's on the Playstation 2, and I see no real need as a cartoon and Disney fan to spend the extra money on a newer system with extra features (like newer games and Blueray compatibility) that don't really apply that much to what I like. Other gamers will, of course, want to look around to find something that meets their own personal preferences.
Sony PS2 Slim
Although there is a lot to love about the big PS2 (hard drive bay, a little more sturdy), the PS2 slim model does have some advantages: 1) they are much smaller, take up a lot less space around the entertainment center, 2) built-in networking (don't have to purchase a separate device like the fat PS2 requires), and 3) they don't have the slider tray to mess with - you just push the button and the lid gives you instant access to remove or insert a game. In summary, although you give up the HDD bay, it is a fair exchange for the other positive features. Much smaller than the PS3, and if you use a component cable for HDTVs, it makes your old games look like PS3 quality. Some that I noticed the most improvement were Soul Calibur and most any of the newer PS2 releases. For that matter, even the old PS1 games seem to have better visuals with the component cable. Sony was really thinking about the future with that capability. I would recommend holding on to the PS2 a little longer, as it hasn't rode off into the sunset yet.
I decide to buy this item for the price firstly, and secondly it was my first Ebay purchase so i was eager to buy it. The playstation 2 console is pretty good. Obviously it cannot compare with the graphics of XBox360, PS3 or Wii. But it does have a great variety of games available plus it has been out there for a while now so it seems to be more reliable compared to the new gen consoles who still have to fix a lot of initial bugs. I have been playing PC games all my life so if I want real good graphics I can always go to my PC games. The reason I went with PS2 was that I wanted to play games not available on the PC platform e.g Soul Calibur III, GT4, Resident Evil 4, MGS etc. Another advantage of getting a PS2 right now is that the games are pretty cheap as compared to those for the new gen consoles - around $20 compared to $49.99 for Wii and $59.99 for the XBox360. Plus you can get a lot of used games from ebay, EB games etc. I will be sticking with my PS2 for a couple of years. In the meantime the new gen consoles would have fixed their initial bugs and the console as well as game prices would have come down (hopefully). Then I might think of getting the new consoles. Thats what I meant by staying behind the curve. Remember....you are getting a video game to have fun and not admire at the graphics. The graphics certainly do enhance the experience but it can never replace a quality game design....playstation2 has a lot of good games out there. Remember that you will have to spend more than the $129 to get started. You will need to get component cables - $25 sony brand. I have not tried the other cheaper ones. I dont think they will be any different and you can save some money here. Also you need to get a memory card. I bought the 2-pack - sony brand for like $29. I think its worth since the single pack is for $19. You might also need to get an extra controller. So be prepared to shell out another $40-$55 for the cables and memory card. The component cables do make a lot of difference. Please buy them if you have a TV which has component inputs. In not then atleast get the S-video cable. Its definitely worth upgrading from the stock composite cable. Also, you do not need to buy an optical audio cable (toslink). It is used only for DVD playback. So if you have your own DVD player you do not need to get the cable for your PS2. The L-R RCA audio cables are enough since none of the PS2 games I know support digital audio. They do have a lot of games which support Dolby ProLogic-II e.g. Resident Evil 4, God of War etc. If you have a receiver which supports Pro-LogicII then its really great since it really sounds great when using ProLogic-II. For more info on Pro-Logic II I would recommend googling it up or look up Wikipedia. Pro-LogicII is a type of dolby surround system which does not require optical audio cables. The signal can be transferred through our regular RCA audio cables and the receiver decodes the information and creates the surround effect.
