I have owned both the launch PS4 and the C-Chasy revised PS4, as well as the original X1 and the X1 Slim. For this review, I will only compare the PS4 Slim to the 2 previous PS4 SKUs (shiny left top and dull left top).
If you have owned one of the previous PS4s, the Slim is noticeably quieter when downoading games or playing games from the hard drive. When playing games from a disc, the drive noise is about the same as the C-Chasy PS4 (also about the same as the X1 drive noise). In terms of thermals, the launch PS4 was slightly cooler than the C-Chasy PS4 and the Slim is considerably cooler to the touch on the top of the unit than either of the previois versions. Where the C-Chasy model felt hot to the touch, the slim is just warm. On thermals and queitness, the slim is by far the best PS4 to date.
The slim also has some nice additions that weren't found in the previous models. For one, the HDD is easier to replace in the slim. Simply remove a small l-shaped...
I got exactly what I wanted with the PS4 Slim... -- An update to my Day-1 PS4. Mainly, a lighter console -- good aesthetically & easy to move around the few times I need to. -- 5G WiFi support (excellent, I got 90mbps). -- Super easy to install my 1TB Fusion drive (literally, 5 minutes).
This is not for everyone though. It's great for me because I'm very happy with my 2-yr old 1080p HDTV & Sound Bar & don't plan on updating to 4K until networks broadcast it regularly (or unless my TV stops working). I also don't use an optical output from my console. Therefore, the PS Pro would only cost me more for technology I won't use in the next 3-4 years & I much prefer the slimmer console.
Bottom line -- I gave it 5 stars because it delivers on what it intends to do. I won't rate it lower for what it can't do since it was not intended as such. The same as I would not give a low rating to a Honda Accord because it wasn't as luxurious as a Mercedes Benz...
Sony hasn't made the transition to a PS4 particularly easy for PS3 owners.
As everyone reading this knows, the software is incompatible between the two machines, and it sounded as if there were some initial issues concerning the PS4 game and video controllers.
Sony was also pushing the PS4 as a "hard-core gamer" platform, as opposed to the one-box media player the PS3 and XBox One were positioned as.
But the form factor of the new Slim model, accompanied by the price drop and inclusion of Uncharted 4 here, pushed me over the edge.
I traded in all my PS3 stuff to GameStop (for pennies on the dollar -- GRRR), cashed in a few GS Gift Cards I still had in my wallet, and brought this sweet little puppy home yesterday.
The good news is, aside from the incompatibility issue, the PS4 is a splendid replacement for a PS3.
The PS4 Slim is a bit smaller than the PS3 Slim and seems to run cooler.
