question about The 320g slim (3001) vs the 500g super slim (4001)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am going to upgrade my HD either way I go, but I was thinking about upgrading my Slim 320g (model 3001) to the new red Kratos 500g (4001) model, but I am going to put a 1tb HD in it anyways. I buy things off the PSN all the time and I am at that point where my 320g is about 40g left. So my main question other then the top sliding to put disc in is there any difference in the internal component between the 2 that would justify me trading in my black 320g for $150 and getting the red for $350? I mean I need the games that come with it and I am going to upgrade my HD either way I go, is there a real upgrade to any of the parts inside? My system runs well enough as it is, Whats your suggestions and thoughts?

PS dont get me wrong, I can afford it, and I like the red look, I was thinking about having a red PS3, the Star Wars 360 and a black Wii, but is not a must. But if they are the same except the door thing and the color, not sure I want to sink 200 more into a ps3 with ps4 coming out soon, when mine will make it until then. and I can get the 2 game for like $80 anyways. so I would save 120 or more if I get used games.

never mind I finally found all the info I need on it, The only difference on between the the 320 slim (CECH-3001) and the red ps3 (CECH-4001) is that the Outside and the power consumption. The 3001 uses about 200w and the 4001 uses about 190w (and I think that is because the 3001 has a mechanical ejection system, and the 4001 has the sliding top which is probly on a spring system. So you are really play the $200-$225 for the case being red, and the games that are worth about 80-90 dollars. So no will not be side stepping to the new red ps3 with the fact in a year or year and a half the ps4 will be out and the ps3 will be cheap. And if and when mine goes down i get a cheaper one in that time. SO I will be just putting a 1Tb hd in it for $80 or less. Sorry to have bothered you all with this.
