PS2 KHS-400C/R compatibility –
I've seen this stated by people here at this forum:
Sorry if I this doesn't sound intelligent (New to Fat PS2s):

I thought that the HD7 is intended to be a replacement for the KHS-400R (And that v8s are also v7s with a newer BIOS, and v7s use KHS-400C lasers)?
It seemed to have been open at least trice before I got it (SCE warranty sticker torn, then the modder's warranty sticker, and another shop's sticker that was pasted over it was torn)...
I have to say that the drive assembly looks different from the SCPH-39001 (v7, and it had a KHS-400C) PS2 I had before I returned it for an exchange for this v8...
Also, I had this impression after reading several thread on the PS2's lasers here:
The KHS-400R is inferior to the KHS-400C...
So is that true?
Nobody seemed to have really mentioned the Sanyo HD7 before. So is a HD7 worse or better than the KHS-* lasers?
I know that I had stated that I had a PS2 with a KHS-400C before, but I can't make an accurate conclusion as that one had a weak laser and had exchanged it for my v8.
Launch units (SCPH-1x000 consoles) use the KHS-400A/B lasers right?
So there are no "replacement" or "compatible" lasers to replace them?
The KHS-400C and KHS-400R had the KHS-400Q and KHS-400H to replace them respectively.
