    ps3 Review: PS3Speed

    Just got a new ps3 jailbreak clone sent out from Lightake.com . The appearance of ps3speed is pretty similar with PS3Yes , it works as promised , the main difference from other clones is that it is very convenient to upgrade (no drivers needed) and the price is competitive ($20 price tag).

    Unpacking:

    The ps3speed came in a small plastic case just like many other clone .





    Upon opening the case and removing the ps3speed , it's very similar with ps3yes , doesn't it ?





    The device is using a "Atmel" controller chip which is easily upgradeable via a PC USB slot:


    Features :

    • * USB Plug and Play solution that installs in seconds without any need to open up the PS3.
    • * Does not break your warranty seal.
    • * Compatible with all PS3 models, both Fat and Slim.
    • * Supports all regions: USA, JAP, PAL and KOREA.
    • * Fully updatable via USB on your PC
    • * 32KB onboard flash (most competing products only have 16KB flash)
    • * Disables forced software updates and will never brick your console.
    • * Supports most games and homebrew applications.
    • * Easy-to-use software for backing up, managing, and playing games from external USB Hard Drive.
    • * Playing games from HDD is much more enjoyable, benefiting from greatly enhanced seek and loading times.
    • * Supports installing homebrew application on PS3 and external USB media.


    Updating the PS3Speed:

    Step 1: Download PS3speedToolV15.exe and right firmware

    Step 2: Press UPGRADE key in PS3speed and plug it in the USB of your PC.

    Step 3: Run PS3speedToolV15,then click"Find PS3speed"
    Click "Open.hex File",select right firmware hex file.
    click "Flash PS3speed"

    • Little Big Planet

    Conclusion:

    I am pretty satisfied with this product , works like a charm .

    • Small size
    • Allows game backups
    • Allows homebrew
    • Supports external USB HDD
    • Does not void warranty
