Question about blu-ray replacement.
I've got an 80 gig ps3 (4 usb ports/bc) and the blu-ray is no longer reading disks. I've opened it up and found that my laser model is KES-400A. I found a website that will send me up a replacement lens (thegamersfix). However someone locally (I live in Montreal) said he could sell me a new "box" - rather than change the laser. He said as long as I could take off the controller board off the old blu-ray I could put it on the new one.
Since the prices come out to the same (about $80) which would you recommend? Will a new box just work if I transfer the controller board?
Any input would be appreciated.
