So yeah, apparantly it does not read discs. and it also has no HDD lol. (but i do have an external drive) so how hard is it to fix the drives? is it costly?
its super expencive so not worth it just buy a new ps3 such a pain in the *** to open the ps3 up......
i would stay away from it...
but you can do as you wish!
I recommend that you stay away as well. The repair is not necessarily difficult, but if you are not careful or do not know what you are doing you can easily damage other portions of the disc drive or even the ps3 during laser exchange. Add to that the cost of the laser and it is probably just cheaper to get a working ps3.
