    It's $20 with 16GB MS PRO HG-DUO card filled with great games. In good condition with charging cables.
    And the best thing about it is I've seen the guy with the PSP in person.
    He said that he'll not sell it to someone 'till I decide not to buy it. (Of course I have his number and he gave me a week to think about it)
    Looks like a great deal, but on the internet, people say that 2000 has a blurry screen and doesn't have a microphone. Yes, it doesn't have a mic but hey, who needs it now? You can just plug an earphone or a headphone and you're ready.
    But again, is the PSP-3000 really making a huge difference or is it just a little update?
    I know that both of the RAM and clock speed are the same.
    I think I should buy but please tell me if I'm wrong, expain why.
    Thanks for reading.

    For what you get and for that price and for a guy who says that will wait for you one week, I would purchase it RIGHT AWAY!

    Nevermind the online world of reviews,buy it right away. Even buying a separate MS would be around that price. It's a bargain.

    i own a 3000 and the 2000vs3000 screen is a trade-off the 3000 screen has scanlines that the 2000 does not but the 2000 has ghosting that the 3000 does not but the 3000 has a greater contrast than the 2000 (screen doesnt look as blue) that depends on what you prefer some people would rather have ghosting than scanlines some the other way round that depends on preference

    a website with comparison

    Used it as a PC controller? It doesn't have a right analog stick and L2&R2!
    Playing GTA with it would be really hard. Have to use combinations for simple stuff (which already exists on PSP)

    Yeah, I know. Sony ain't gonna allow us to use sweet, sweet SD, and empty our pockets with the Memory Stick.
    However you can buy microSDs and use an adapter to make it more convenient. Now you can use it on a microSD port, an SD port, and an MS port!

    i used it with retroarch so without the analog and other it was just like a snes comtroller. and i had it setup to control vlc for a while. there is cfw plugin (cant remember the name) that made it look a usb gamepad. thats also how i used it as ps3 controller also (for a few games that dont use all the buttons).

    I bought the device. It works good and yeah I noticed the "ghosting" stuff.
    But for me It's okay, gives a PS2 feeling while playing GTA. (It had a "Trails" effect on PS2)
    Sometimes that blur effect makes the games look a little smoother.
    So, is the display interlaced on PSP-2000?

    i have no idea i think they all are progressive ? i remember reading that the reason why the 3000 has scanlines its because of the orientation of the pixels

    The PSP 1000-2000 Series the Display its a TFT LCD, that seems to be using a TN type display, due to the high motion-blur/ghosting present on the screen,and poor color reproduction.

    On the PSP 3000/Go/E1000 Series, Sony seems to have switched to an VA Type LCD, which eliminated the ghosting/motion-blur of the previous TN LCD used on the previous models, and increased colour saturation and maximum peak brightness, the trade off was it has a higher response time and interlacing on the screen,although reports suggest that the PSP-Go eliminated that issue with a new LCD Structure, the PSP-3000 and E1000 share the same panel fabrication,so interlacing scan-lines still presist on these models.

    Also the screen looks like someone burnt it when I look at the reflections of my other displays (pc monitor etc.) on the screen.

    sd to ms adapters are like 1 dollar or even less,so that's not an issue at all.

    By burnt you mean bad viewing angles? Thats normal comming from a TN Type Display, they have poor viewing angles.
