Black Playstation2 V Silver PS2

My grand-daughter wants a Playstation 2 but I have heard that one of them is noisy but which I don't know which one. I know this has nothing to do with PCs but can anyone help?

I think it's just cosmetic click here

The newer silver one has a better DVD player.

If I had a PS2,and its noise started bugging me,I would have the sides off it and change the fan.Its the only moving part thats likely to be making any noise. ;-)

We have a silver and it's not noisy. You should get two controllers with silver so you can play with her straight away. The black ones are the older model - does the same job but most children would prefer the latest thing!

As sicknote says - it's just cosmetic.

All PS2s manufactured from the begining of the year have improvements to make them quieter (new fan) and incorporate an IR sensor for the remote control (rather than have a plug in sensor on a controler port).

So it just comes down to whether you like black or silver (and are prepared to pay for it).

Don't forget also the limited edition Aqua colour !!!

I think it's something to do with the sound system you can buy for it (it's silver).

Anyone want one, used for less than an hour and 3 months old with some games, 2 x controllers etc.
