    I like it, and had to get a 2000 since my phat broke but I'm not sure if the sharper screen is worth it, although I do appreciate anything with a sharper clearer image. Not to mention the fact you can put that 6.60 pro c-2 permanently on it. (not sure if thats really important though) I have about two weeks left to decide. They just have a ton of em here and there all the same price, except for the phat which is $5 dollars less. lol!! $30-$35 bucks. Damn maybe I should just buy a 3000 anyway, but I really don't need two of them. Let me know whats up.

    I like the 3000 but I have never used the 2000.
    The 3000 is quite more comfortable and light than the 1000, the screen is crisper and brighter, but be aware, it makes scanlines annoyingly more evident.
    Anyway I like the 3000 a lot, very hackable, great machine for emulation, it is way better than the 1000 but I cannot compare it to the 2000.

    I loved my 1000. It was a bit bulky though. I think the specs between the 2000 and 3000 are almost the same. Just the 300 has an upgraded
    screen and I think a mic or something, or the mics placed somewhere else, r something to that extent. I think as cpu and ram and all that there quite
    the same. Both models have twice the ram as the 1000 I believe, so that might help a little bit more with emulation then the 1000. Thanks for letting me know whats up.

    In all honesty if you've been using your PSP 2000 for that long and have no problems with it, IMHO it's not worth the upgrade to a PSP 3000 unless the ghosting and input lag is really noticeable and bothering you on your current PSP 2000.

    i owned both, although 2K for a short period, the difference is noticeable but not glaringly obvious. i didn't care for the 2K so I traded it very quickly.

    if you have a choice, go with 3K. if you dont need it, stay with your 2K, its fine.
