better build quality and much better battery life

These are flat out false, especially the build quality bit. The 2000 has an objectively cheaper build quality, and it shows. As for the battery life, the 2000 has up to an hour extra battery life. An improvement to be sure, but it's not "much better".


1 extra hour is a lot for a handheld

OLED screen is superior to the cheapo LCD. Visuals on the 2000 look washed out.

Have had both.

Loved OG, but the slim is lighter and better for the battery life.

2000 > OG in my opinion. (traded my 2x OG's for brand new 2000's)

Have fun having problems with the analog sticks I guess.

Lol? Have had 0 issues.

Also, even if I do...like I care?

Paid $48 per OG Vita. Traded them for $130 per. Used that money to buy 2x 2000's for $60 new.

So far, yes, and that's great. Don't get me wrong, I don't wish analog stick issues on you, but the fact is that the 2000s are known to have those issues.

You should, because analog stick problems can in fact make games a chore to play if not outright unplayable.

I'm actually curious to know where you found 2x 2000s for $60 each new. Care to share? I'd like to invest in one if it's that cheap.

Few months too late :/

They were $60 on clearance at Target a while while back (maybe even a year? I cant remember tbh)

2000, but it may have ghost analog sticks issue down the line. Does OG not have that issue?

The 1000/OG/OLED model is prone to other issues, such as screen burn, the infamous battery issue (with the battery being more difficult to reconnect/replace), and memory cards being screwed up by firmware updates (not that we really get any firmware updates anymore, but if you're looking at buying a 1000 then you'll likely have to update it).

Also, games have been made with the 2000/Slim model in mind for several years now, and have had their palettes adjusted accordingly by the developers.

Oh, and the area on the back of the system, where your fingers are supposed to rest, is much smaller on the 1000 model. This means it's very easy to accidentally activate the back touch panel in games that use it.

Here's a review of the 1000 that mentions vehicles drifting (ie. analogue stick "ghosting") while playing Wipeout 2048: https://www.laptopmag.com/reviews/tablets/sony-playstation-vita
And a video of another 1000 model with the same issue:

Definitely OLED model. Not only does the screen and (personally) weight look and feel better, the 3g version can also be modded to accept microsd for cheap memory (256gigs in mine).

Literally the first I've read/heard of this. Probably just an issue with launch models.
