Worse, since there's a homebrew method for temporarily (as in, a couple of weeks at most -- sort of like sawdust in a leaky engine) reviving such a PS3 with a heat gun or hair dryer, I've read that the vast majority of early-model PS3s currently on eBay are YLOD units that have been "fixed" in this manner and are immediately put up for sale on the Bay -- with a "no return" policy, of course -- by unscrupulous gamers to raise money so they can buy a new model PS3, which is much better built but, of course, useless for SACD ripping.
I have an original PS3 (in very good condition) that has not been updated in some time. I believe I am on 3.2 right now, but I need to confirm that tonight. It saw moderate use in the past (gaming/music/movies), but since I bought my OPPO, I don't really use it at all anymore.Is anyone currently looking for one of these?
For those who have a hard time finding PS3 with older firmware, there is (3.41) one on Ebay for $349. No I'm not related to the seller. Just want to help who are frustrated finding the older firmware. I experienced it.
