V4 laser unit
V4 laser unit –
I was just wondering how good the laser unit in the US NTSC V4 "gap" rom ps2 is. I've gotten the impression (see Charlie's FAQ: Laser and Media Issues) that V5 ps2's had a really good laser unit (V5 booted DVD9 games every time as opposed to V7 which booted the DVD9 games only once out of 5).
Thanks for the input!
The one in my v4-1A is still functioning quite well and only requires an occasional cleaning with a Blaze cleaning disc to keep the dust and such in the air from obscuring it's vision. If you canplay a standard DVD9 movie DVD, then assume it's in good shape. As Charlie has pointed out in other threads, it appears the booting of DVD9 games is more related to the modchip in use rather than the laser itself.
