I'm seeing that the slim is more of sony screwing the end user. Not to mention that with so many hardware revisions on the PS3 (what is it now 8?), the bugs in new firmwares are going to become more and more prevalent.
I got lucky on my 80 gig, I was in a local used game store, and a guy came in looking to sell his, the store didn't have the cash to buy it, so I snagged an 80 gig back-compatible for $200, but it's basically a blue-ray player and a media center for me.
