Yeah, free trials come up from time to time, but it is a pretty awesome service. I got my $50 worth in discounts alone the first five months by buying stuff off of the PSN I would've purchased anyway. At that point, literally every discount and free subscription download from that point forward was truly free. I now wait to buy a lot of stuff since eventually a lot of it comes on PS+, so that saves money as well.
The auto patching is a great feature, cloud storage allowed me to flawlessly transfer all my gaming files to my upgraded PS3, and there are the early betas and free hour game trials that are nice perks as well. PS+ has been one of the best gaming deals in a long time, especially if you don't already own a lot of the content you eventually download.
