Lol same here, only more, £150 (~$200-250) in UK. I'm not going to pay that ever again, if it ylods again I'm gonna threaten legal action and hopefully get a new PS3 slim for free. I've heard that you can do this.

Rather than pay Sony £150 AND lose all my data, I decided to go ahead and fix it myself, and I must say it runs quiter now than it ever has.

Whoever Sony employs to put the thermal paste in the PS3 needs sacking, the state of it is horrendous (looks very cheaply done)

Yep, had it too. My 60gb BC PS3 got the infamous YLOD last week too. Fixed it myself. Sony looking for almost the price of a new one and all I get in return is a refurb with a 3 month warranty.
