I don't know about some of you but I got tired of plugging and unplugging my ps3 Slim. So I hard wired a 120v rocker switch from Radio Shack. I personally love it. I know some people might think its lazy of me but its a quick flip off and on. My Ps3 is also on a Media Shelf and its very difficult for me to reach back and un-plug and re-plug it everytime.

Why didn't you just put a switch on the wire itself like on a lamp?

Would have been so much easier.

this might have taken me 10 minutes too install a switch, but... I was given the switch so no cost to me and in the end it will be much easier. I cannot get to where my ps3 is plugged into the power easy.

Also... sometimes I wonder why people asking about why people mod their systems on these forums. Sometimes we do these things because we enjoy doing it.

Over all i think it has a clean look to it and it works really well.

I definitely agree. There aren't many electronics that I enjoy using that I haven't modded in some way.

I have the PS3 hooked to it's own power bar I had lying around the house. I just flip that switch and still have my warranty and cost me around $2 if I remember when I bought it. Just my two cents.

This would be ideal, but breathofice said that he can't get to where the power's plugged in easily.

Also my warrenty went out the window when I cut part of the metal cage inside the system to accommodate my 12mm 1tb hard drive

I want a bigger HDD myself and could care less about my warranty if it will get me a bigger HDD as I hate using an external for my PSGroove.
