    Very Good system at a very nice price ($199)

    This is the slim PS4 (model# CUH 2115B) and is not bundled with a game. It cost $200 (Mid November sale price) which is half the price of the original released in 2013 but with twice the hard drive space (1tb). This PS4 is light (4.63lbs). It has only 2 USB ports (located in the front of the unit), one HDMI, one Ethernet and one PS4 camera port at the back. Note, it has no optical port (which the original and PS4 Pro have). The package consists of the system, one dualshock 4 controller, one hdmi high speed cable, one single ear/microphone piece, one usb charge cable, a quick start guide and safety manual and a PS store free trial booklet. PROS: $199 and with some really good games frequently going on sale this season (Barely a year old AAA games going for $19.99-49.99 when they are usually sold at $59.99) you can get a great bargain. This system can do HDR. So, if you have an HDR capable TV/monitor, you will be very impressed by HDR capable games. Note, it cannot do 4K (that can be done on the PS4 PRO). I personally find HDR more impressive than 4K. It can play all PS4 games. So, for those unaware, even if the game says "PS4 PRO Enhanced", it will still work on this system and the older system. It comes with a 1tb HDD (twice as much as the original system). This HDD can also easily be upgraded without voiding the warranty. Easy set-up and nice user interface. I think it is impressive how easy it is to set up a new PS4 and get going. Once set up, the user-interface is quite friendly. CON: One major thing that I would say takes away from this system is the lack of an optical port. For people who do not like using or cannot use HDMI ARC, the optical port has always been a solution. There are however some affordable HDMI/optical converters that could work though. Another possible negative is that there are only 2 USB ports available. But for such a light system that still delivers great quality gaming and APPS, I would not knock it for this. Do note though: The PS4 PRO has an extra USB port at the back which makes connecting the PSVR processor a lot easier (depending on your setup). Conclusion: I use PS Vue for my cable TV solution and it is superb. I wanted to be able to watch soccer in another room and could not help but to jump at this deal. Its like having a cable box in another room without having to pay outrageous rental fees. While still being able to play games and stream music/movies. PS4 slim vs PS4 pro: If you have plans on getting a 4K TV with HDR and do not have a PS4, then you may want to also look at the PS4 Pro. The stand alone system is currently going for $350 in other stores this season and Bestbuy matches its competitors. You would most likely watch 4K and HDR TV shows on apps via your smart tv. But if your TV does not carry some apps, the PS4 Pro most likely would. But beware that the PS4 pro cannot play 4K discs. It can only stream 4K. As for gaming, its subjective. Some people do not see a great difference in 4K games vs 1080P games). But many do see a difference with HDR turned off or on in games. So, if you are of the latter inclination, the PS4 slim would be a great option. PSVR: I have only tried PSVR on PS4 pro. I will compare both and update in the comments section.

    Slimmer than the original, minus the optical out.

    Takes much less space than the original model, and seemingly have all the exact same features, except that it's missing the Optical Out port, so if you're looking to use Optical for a sound bar for other sound system, you'll have to make due with the RCA output of your TV. On the flip side, I bought this for my girlfriend for Christmas because I knew she wouldn't be using a soundbar anyway, and she's been playing the heck out of it. I was worried the smaller size meant it would heat up quicker due to constrained size inside, but thus far it seems to be doing just fine. I'm still using my old first generation Destiny Edition PS4 with 500Gb and I'm a little jealous of her hard drive having 1TB! I guess time will tell whether or not it's better than the original model. I will say that the sensor buttons on the original first generation model have completely worn out their novelty, and I would really like some regular buttons. I think the second generation original model fixed this without changing the look, but the slim models went to a different button design altogether. The slim includes the original version of the DS4, not the new pro version with the light strip on the touchpad, making the light bar color visible from the front of the controller. This evidently isn't a huge deal, but I'm hoping Sony is packaging future slim consoles with the newer model. Probably not though.

    Best Gaming Console I've Ever Owned!

    I purchased this console just a couple of months ago, October of 2017, as a replacement for my PS3 that I primarily used for Netflix and PSVue subscriptions. I soon discovered that the quality of those services alone were on a much higher level than they were on my PS3 system. After trying a few games I initially purchased with the system I took a leap of faith and decided to purchase Horizon Zero Dawn and was almost instantly hooked by its amazing graphics, story and gameplay. After not playing video games regularly for more than a decade, I have now made the leap back into console gaming and power up the system regularly. In my humble opinion, this is the ultimate home entertainment system and is either a must-have part of ones wish list or one that should be strongly considered. With over 8000 game titles currently available, its choices are endless and contain something enjoyable for all age ranges. Easy to use interface, hard to put down games and streaming services that embrace the chord-cutting trend that is all the rage. I am still surprised at how silent this machine runs and its amazing ability to convert internet streams into fluid HD video. 10 out of 10!!!

    Good Console

    The graphics on this console are crystal clear. Bought for myself especially when the final fantasy vii remake comes out. I pre ordered that game. Also bought final fantasy x HD remake. My kids and I truly enjoy playing the remaster version of these games. We are big fans of the franchise. Pretty easy set-up. The only downside is you have to buy online subscription for each individual player. It is just like the xbox 360. So I bought just for my account and if my kids decide to go online to play they have to log onto my account. I refuse to pay $60 per person a year. I don't mind them using my account to play online because they don't have my password and I have to put it in myself. Great parental control feature. Can personalize console as well. Not much choices in Avatars to choose from. Controller is wireless and does not use batteries. You charge it with the cable the console provides. Great way to save money and not have to buy batteries. Overall no major issues with this console so far. Had it for 2 weeks now. Great amount of storage 1TB.

    It's a PS4... Nothing that special anymore.

    I purchased this unit for my stepson, who was taking his original PS4 until back-and-forth between houses. This particular version is a little bit newer and, as such, had a larger drive and was just a little bit thinner. Besides that, however, there really is nothing special about this particular unit. The PS4 has been out for several years now and there is nothing particularly earth-shattering about this unit. There is also a Pro version (or whatever they call it) available. Without a 4K TV, however, I did not see the point of spending more for that particular perk. If you're in the market for a PS4, then this is obviously one of a very limited number of choices. Personally, I always preferred the XBox controller more than the PS4, which is why I was never a big fan of the PS4 (that, and the annual cost to join the Playstation Network). As for my stepson, however, he loves his PS4... I think it proved to be a good purchase for us.

    I've been wanting a game console for some time now. Haven't played games on my computer since I purchased Star Wars in 1994 to play on my MS-dos computer. From the above date you will be able to tell that I'm older. A lot of research went into this decision. I read many reviews, when we were out shopping I would ask young people looking at games what they thought about the consoles. Invariably the answers led me to the PS4. Thanksgiving weekend we were in the DFW area. Went online to search out a console online, I hesitated and lost my chance, all sold out. Kept the search going and found one at Best Buy in Metarie. We ordered this for in-store pickup. When we flew into New Orleans after the holiday we stopped on the way home to pickup the console. Best Buy had the unit ready for pickup and also bought a couple of games that were on sale. I'm very pleased with my purchase and the pricing of $199.00. There is a learning curve from DOS based games to this, the graphics and smoothness of play are amazing to me. Really enjoying my purchase.

    Console madness

    I went on to purchase a few controllers because the kids have had a renaissance interest in Little Big Planet. Hey, we take any excuse for desired family time we can get!! The problem is that there is no longer controllers sold for the PS3 I was buying them for except off brand, not well reviewed stuff. I could get them online but at 50 bucks a pop I considered the fact that my PlayStation 3 was bought the release year of the first gen. The thing is old on electronics terms and I wasn’t excited about sinking another 110 minemum for new controllers and then having the console die on me. You can probably do the math, I ended up going home with a PS4. Over all I am happy with the device. I’m happy that to some extent it is ‘backwards compatible’ ish using a Sony program that allows gaming older titles, but not EVERY title is available so do your research if you are hunting for something particular. I’ve always liked Sony consoles, I do have the first gen XBOX One as well and over all I like the functionality of the PS better. They are both very close so it really will come down to what your friends or family has if you are looking forward to online gaming.

    This is mainly for people who don't already own a PS4. I already have original PS4. Bought this for friend during Black Friday week when price was 199 so I got to play around with it and help them set it up NOTE: internet set up still required before can watch disc movies which is STUPID. PS3 never had to do that. Internet set up should only be required if you plan to A. buy from PSN store or B. plan to play online Smaller but not by much. Its not like a big improvement to say PS2 slim which was very small. Or say Xbox one S 40% smaller. Other than that just works exactly like original would. Hard drive access is on the back now VS top on original. Would recommend additional storage because 1 TB will fill up FAST. If you ask me PS4 & Xbox one should have gotten 2 TB hard drives from the start since PS4 can't play physical PS2 games being able to download HD remasters on PS4 from PS store is a PLUS. Currently about 50 or so titles. Hoping catalog grows over time. Sony did this to COMPETE with Xbox one backwards compatibility with 360 and original XBOX
