How do lik-sang's lasers compare?
Compared to the genuine Sony v3 lasers, how do these things fare up?
Looks like the PS2 which had the potentially dud Messiah1 was merely a case of a dying laser. PS1 CD-R's read fine, PS2 CD-R's don't and PS2 DVD-R's after some adjustment only read MaxMax (aka Ritek) brands (but that was testing with a region 0 DVD movie, not a game since I don't have any on DVD-R). That's brought me to the conclusion that the laser has crapped out.
So the customer has decided to go the replacement laser path but I'm not so confident about the aftermarket stuff. What are your experiences with these?
