Default New Slimmer PS2 (Nov04)

Might have to put one of these in my rides... they are small enough to fit almost anywhere.

thats awesome but only problem will be the cd tray opening up instead of out...

harder to change discs if mounted in tight areas and you definately cannot mount it under the seat.

Guess you might have to make a pull out tray for the whole unit

Saw that, but i'm glad i just got the newer upgraded PS2, not the thin one.

Heat can be an issue too with such a small unit, i bet the airflow isn't as good.

Well my guess is they probably upgraded the cooling with copper heatsinks and heatpipes.
