Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console
Generally, the noise level produced by any optical device - including a PS3 - will depend on the work load being processed at any given time. The larger the work load, the louder the PS3 may become. Additionally, some users have reported that the sound level generated by PS3's appears to vary depending on the model you own. This may be due to the fact that at least two different types of case fans were used during production, but remember that environmental conditions may still have a direct impact on your PS3's performance as well. What you are encountering may not necessarily be a hardware defect, but instead a result of the unit’s hardware configuration.
As long as your PS3 is not making any unusual clicking, grinding or whining noises during Blu-ray playback, you should be relatively safe. If you're still not quite sure, remember that you can always speak with Sony directly for more information. A technical support agent at their toll-free hotline should be able to provide you with further suggestions or information on how to minimize any noise during playback.
Hope this helps you out.
