Not sure I follow, so you're going to pay 160 to fix it then another 120 for a new console?

Do you lose all games you have downloaded from PSN if you upgrade to slim? I presume as they are installed on the hrad drive that you do but it doesnt seem right? Maybe they are associated with your PSN ID and you can re-download them to the slim?

Yeah they are associated with your psn account, you can allways "backup" your ps3 before you sell it or whatever, then just do a system restore on the slim.

Just wondering what exactly YLOD is lads and how easy is it to fix?

They accepted mine. Had the exact same issue as the OP. YLOD so I fixed it myself and then traded it in. I put the warranty seal back on mine though, you would have to look closely at it to know it was removed.
If there's any questions regarding the warranty seal you could always just say you had to return it to Sony at one stage while it was under warranty because the Blu-ray drive stopped reading discs.
