YLOD wasn't a big problem to begin with, really. Less than 5% of older PS3s had hardware malfunctions. New one seems to be a bit better.

I'm still running my original fat 60gb. No reliability issues with most ps3's, to be honest.

My fat 60GB died after years of abuse. Bought that baby on release day. Bought a slim and haven't had one problem. Actually, the HDD was a little sketchy but I bought a bigger one anyways so it was w/e.

All in all, the slim stays cool and quiet. No problems yet

I use mine for entire days at a time with no problems. Of course I have mine propped up on a 200mm blue LED MegaFlow for extra cooling.

I get the usual case popping noise and sometimes it freezes while sitting idle on the xmb,other than that mine runs fine in a very small bedroom (usually 75-85º fahrenheit) and the fan speed mostly stays on low,though i only had it since August 2010.
