On the original PS3, there was an ON/OFF switch on the back. With the PS3 Slim, Sony removed it. With all the recent outbreak of open source jailbreaks that allows gamers to install homebrew applications, you must start the PS3 from a cold boot. With original PS3, you simply flip the switch but with Slim owners, you must unplug and plug the power cable. This can be a big hassle especially if you're power cable is not easily accessible. This device retails for 19€ ($19.90USD) and is shipping to retailers now.
The TEAM X3 is well decided to offer products of quality to us, and really useful. Thus, for all the owners of PS3 slim which are not equipped with a switch as on the FAT, the TEAM X3 thus developed X3 Switch, a module which connects between the console and the cable of slim in order to create a switch off-set on the top, by avoiding you the tiresome handling of the cable of slim between each starting of a dongle.
Finally the price of the module should be in the neighbourhoods of 19€, costs carriage included/understood. The address of the site as for it is www.x3switch.com
and it will be on line under a few hours.
