    I've done a Google, no results..

    Just got hold of a new PS3 testing it out and its as expected, game loads etc. I went to load a BR & yikes, its loud when loading.

    A lot louder than my other one which is about 16 months old.

    Faulty or normal?

    Anyone have the newer model can confirm/deny please.

    Lee.

    Not sure what model mine is but it's a 160GB Slim bought from Asda just before New Year.... and it's very noisy when accessing discs. Sounds like it's the laser moving and funnily enough reminds me of owning a PS2. I've only tried games so far although will be watching a BR tonight so will see if that's any louder. Anyway, it makes my 360 Slim sound whisper quiet.

    My new 3003b is noisy as anything when accessing discs. Seems to be the norm though. Cheaper components?
