What customers say about "Key Specs"
Sony PSP Slim & Lite 2000 Console
  • The screen is bright and clear (though hard to see in natural light) and displays grahpics in surprisingly high resolution for a handheld.
  • There are quite a few good games out for this system, and used ones can be had on the cheap.
  • I have only used this for games so far, but am very impressed with the picture and sound quality.
  • Good system, runs well and even had a 1 gig memory stick in it still, very happy!
  • No games can be stored on memory unless you spend 50 bucks to buy a pandora battery to install custom firmware.....not sure how come nobody mentioned it
Sony PlayStation Vita WiFi
  • Superior resolution and screen. Lively colors and fluidity
  • Screen resolution and quality is amazing and sound is great.
  • Seems a little fragile compared with the older PS Vita 1000 model. But they have improved battery life, and comes with 1GB of internal memory. I had to buy a 16 GB memory card, and I have 4-5 games. Great stuff!
  • Once memory card is inserted, it switches and prevents access to internal memory.
  • Thanks to the small internal memory and the high price of memory cards, it will be difficult to download many games from the PSN Store

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony PSP Slim & Lite 2000 Console
  • Its light weight and easy to carry around with you
  • he system is light-weight, but may scratch easily.
  • Out option for the blind impaired, it's a great system. Not to mention the fact that its weight is really light helps out a lot when you are gaming for a couple of hours.
  • Еhe finish at the back is glossy and is a finger print magnet and it is not as solid as the original.
  • General feel is cheaper that the original.
Sony PlayStation Vita WiFi
  • Lighter, better ergonomics, smaller rear touch-pad, better joysticks, and longer batter life.
  • It's much more ergonomic and handles better, especially for someone with relatively small hands.
  • Ideal game for me. light weight durable and works as expected!
  • less impressive screen, feels like a slightly cheaper and less durable construction.
  • It has all the fire power and durability you expect from Sony, but the operating and set-up was way too complicated.

What customers say about "Screen"
Sony PSP Slim & Lite 2000 Console
  • Screen is big enough to watch a movie.
  • Gaming is great. the big screen is big enough to watch a movie.
  • The screen size it the exact proportions of a movie theater and the brightness and color is better than any competing system.
  • The screen does not look any brighter, grant you my old PSP was at least second generation for that model.
  • Screen can be displayed on your tv/monitor.
  • Screen reflection... while playing/watching video, you can actually see your mirror image
Sony PlayStation Vita WiFi
  • The touch screen is super responsive
  • The screen is amazing - large and clear
  • The touch screen and "back touch screen" plays a great role on some games
  • The new model has an LCD screen, still sharp picture but maybe a little less contrast, but much improved battery life
  • The only bad part is that the screen is LCD and its a little dimmer than the last version of the ps vita. A great buy and its good for everyone!

What customers say about "Multimedia"
Sony PSP Slim & Lite 2000 Console
  • My love for this thing started when I saw that you can browse the internet with this thing!
  • WiFi browsing is decent for airport/hotel hotspots.
  • It connects to the TV so I can view my videos and photos, which is so cool.
  • It does music, videos and wireless internet in addition to games.
  • The interface is just like the PS3. I think the interface is very clean and easy to use.
Sony PlayStation Vita WiFi
  • Good for trips or travelling! Plus there is a lot of master piece games you can download or purchase through PSN.
  • It has excellent graphics, but also it has an excellent camera so we used it to take photos.
  • Also it has wi-fi so we used it while overseas to get onto the internet- so very useful for our trip when I did not want to be bringing my laptop!
  • Some of games on psn don't even have descriptions & or pictures to explain the games purpose.
  • The system it self is also disappointing , with certain features missing like battery percentage, skipping music with L& R.

What customers say about "Power"
Sony PSP Slim & Lite 2000 Console
  • The battery lasts a long time and I am able to play it with no problem.
  • The battery is good. I generally end up charging it weekly (dont use it 24/7 thou)
  • Battery could last longer. I am getting a 4-5 hr. battery life. Good that many planes are coming with 110V power supply.
  • Wish the battery lasted longer
Sony PlayStation Vita WiFi
  • The battery lasts a long time, and you can play for hours on end. It also charges rather quickly.
  • The battery life continues to impress and the games themselves are unique
  • The battery does last much longer than the older version, so that is a plus.
  • Great system and excellent battery life! I'm amazed at the power the console has.
