Purchased this CECHA01 Model and love it, exceeded my expectations. I purchased an official sony repaired unit and it lasted so little and this reballing website unit is so neat in condition and works as it should. I needed that backwards ps2 ps1 game compatability. anyone who felt they invested in sony's products a good deal felt at a loss when devices went down because of the longevity factor and the sony expected life of device...they know what they are doing. Anyways this unit from this service website served me what I paid for. Email response was great and device arrived in good time. I have two other units that failed because of the stupid sony updates. Definitely will be sending those units to be serviced and restored. Outstanding craftsmanship in repair.

LOOKING FOR A Great Sony Playstation 3 system?
Don't buy a used system, you might buy it cheap but usually these used systems are either repaired - mostly with a heat gun fix or a reflow that doesn't last or in best cases they are about to break down because they are over nine years old so basically their sellers are just trying to get rid of them and passing the junk to someone else !! so when you buy the used PS3 keep in mind that you will need to spend at least an extra $150 to have the used system Reballed so it can last longer, My systems are not like that !
Here is the Playstation 3 system that everyone should be looking for , it might not be in brand new condition cosmetically but it is in brand new condition when it comes to functionality and life expectancy..!!
THIS IS THE ONLY SYSTEM YOU WILL FIND THAT HAS JUST BEEN REBALLED USING LEADFREE SOLDER WHICH IS ENVIRONMENTALY SAFE AND LONG LASTING, THIS SYSTEM SHOULD OUTLAST A BRAND NEW CONSOLE WITH AT LEAST DOUBLE THE LIFE TIME SO IF YOU NEED A PS3 SYSTEM YOU CAN DEPEND ON, DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ALL THE TIME ABOUT GETTING THE YLOD OR ANY OTHER KNOWN VIDEO PROBLEMS, DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT HOW MANY HOURS YOU HAVE USED IT FOR TODAY, A SYSTEM THAT EVERYONE SUFFERED THE YLOD BEFORE IN HIS SYSTEM IS LOOKING FOR , A SYSTEM THAT NO OTHER SELLER CAN OFFER OR WILL OFFER , HERE IT IS, DON’T HASITATE BECAUSE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY WITH THIS SYSTEM WILL BE VERY WELL SPENT MONEY!!
THIS SYSTEM HAS BEEN REBALLED BY ME , THE BEST KNOWN IN THE WORLD FOR PS3 REBALLING AND THE ONLY ONE WHO IS CAPABLE TO REBALLING PS3 USING LEADFREE SOLDER WHICH IS THE ORIGINAL MATERIAL USED BY SONY FOR THESE SYSTEMS -NOT THE CHEAP UNSAFE LEADED SOLDER THAT IS USED POORLY BY OTHER REPAIR TECHNICIANS- USING THE MOST ADVANCED COMPUTER CONTROLLED MACHINES ( CHECK MY OTHER ITEMS TO READ MORE ABOUT REBALLING AND SEE PICTURES OF THE MACHINE USED IN THIS SYSTEM'S REBALLING).
THIS PS3 MODEL IF BRAND NEW WILL SELL FOR OVER TWO THOUSAND DOLLAR AND THIS SYSTEM WILL LAST AS LONG AS THE BRAND NEW ONE AND PROBABLY EVEN LONGER DUE TO THE MAXIMUM CARE AND ACCURACY OF ITS REBALLING WHICH EXCEEDS THE MANUFACTURER PROCEDURE.
This System will meet the following Features:

**** HERE IS SOME FACTS ABOUT PS3 PROBLEMS AND REPAIRS : Usually ps3 gets the YLOD or stops producing video and sound or in best cases gets some kind of scrambled pictures or freezes which are all symptoms caused by bad or broken connections between the graphics chip and the motherboard, the graphics chip has about 1000 soldering point attaching it to the motherboard - check my PS3 repair service listing for illustrating pictures - and the symptoms that happen will depend on which of these points will have a broken connection. In most cases these broken connections happens due to some oxidized soldering points on the motherboard, the graphics chip or both which will not be repaired by reflow no matter which machine is used because the oxidized layer is a layer of cupper oxide which is a non-conductive layer that doesn't disappear by reflow so the only way to repair a broken console in a permanent effective way is to completely detach the graphics chip and clean the oxidation from both the board and the chip which is a very advanced process called reballing then reattach the chip again. Many people have tried to perform the reballing process but due to the high sensitivity and profissionality of the procedure success rate with most people is very low and that is why most of them use leaded solder to have a higher success rate due to the fact that leaded solder has a much lower melting point than leadfree which makes the process much easier for repair technicians, the only problem is that leaded solder reballing even if done successfully doesn't last for more than few months, comparing that to the leadfree solder which is the original material used by the manufacturer that lasted in most cases over three years it is clear that leadfree solder is the right material to use to get a real manufacturer quality repair that can last for years rather than few months. I was the first on Ebay to offer the leaded solder reballing for PS3 and I am currently the only one who is capable of reballing PS3 using leadefree solder and actually it is the only material I am currently using in all my repairs. Some people will tell you that the power supply unit causes YLOD, those people unfortunately use that claim to overcharge people for their low quality repairs, I personally replaced the power supply only three times in over three thousand consoles that I repaired. Some other people say that if you replace the cooling fan with one that has more blades will make the console run cooler, that is also not true and the reason is that the temperature inside the console is designed to be constant value and if the temperature inside the console exceeds its designed value the fan speed will increase to lower the temperature back to its safe range and the number of fan blades has nothing to do with that, the amount of air flow basically depends on the blades angle not number , another fact is about the thermal compound , most people say that using a specific kind of thermal compound like arctic silver makes the console run cooler, that is not true, the fact is that the difference in temperature between a console that has the best ever thermal compound and another console with the worth ever thermal compound used in the same conditions doesn't exceed 2 to 3 degrees Celsius which is considered a very little difference so please don't listen to all these unfactual claims that come from unprofessional people and always take your advice from a responsible professionals not from people who make unprofessional YouTube videos and the first thing they do is to tell you: " we are not responsible for any damage to your console by following our video and instructions" , really a lot of people permanently damaged their own consoles using these videos and instructions so don't be fooled by them or by the people that use their footsteps ****.
I recently purchased this model and wanted to leave a review. I had purchased an original phat PS3 CECHA01 back when it was released several years ago back in 2006. I played the heck out of the system. Used it for PS3, PS2, and PS1 games. It lasted for several years until it died back in 2013 while playing The Last of Us. I held onto it for a couple years until throwing it out because I couldn't find anywhere online at the time to repair it that I could trust. I found this site not too long ago, and I regret throwing it away. If I had held onto it, I would have had it repaired through this site. Thankfully, this site sells consoles as well. I pulled the trigger and purchased this model. I received it a couple weeks later. The condition of this model is great. Almost like new. This is amazing considering it's age. I had a couple questions during while waiting to receive it, and the communication from the site was great, responding quickly. This model plays PS3, PS2, and PS1 games no problem. It ships with 3.55 firmware, and 60 gig hard drive, which I eventually plan to upgrade later. I'm so thrilled to have another CECHA01 model again. I hope it last as long as my old system. Thanks PS3 Specialist!
I am really stoked about my PS3 purchase. The customer service has been great both before and after purchase, shipping was fast and very well packaged, and the unit looks like it came straight from the factory back in 2006. I would highly recommend a purchase from here!!!
Ok so I was a little hesitant buying from this site, but I can say I am absolutely satisfied with the system I got. Shipping was fast and the console arrived in perfect condition! so if you are thinking about getting one don't hesitate!
