• Compatible with all PS3 models, both Fat and Slim.
• Supports all regions: USA, JAP, PAL and KOREA.
• USB device fully updatable by PC.
• 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.

50$ is still too much money considering the ongoing ports to the PSP, Nokia phones, Android phones etc.

I wouldn't pay more than 30 bucks for one of these. Nobody knows how easily you can update these devices and if they will allow you to remove the dongle without crashing/restarting the PS3.

The alternatives seem to be cheaper and more open to flexibility and updates. x3jailbreak will supposedly be cheaper than this.

as said before, 30-40 dollars is a good price, not much more than a teensyboard and without the hassle.

i think a price point around $35 - $40 might entice some users not too comfortable at the idea of working with chips (even though in this particular case its as simple as it gets)

I really hope they came up with their own code and aren't just using ps groove on their chips
