i had ta flip top it wouldent work with import backups so i got rid
also these flp tops screw your laser up cuz the laser is searching for the disc when u take it out wearing it out rip my ps1 for the smart card!
get a mod chip it saves you the hastle of swapping disc!
flip tops don't screw your laser up, if you use them properly the laser won't be active when you take the disc out, you must have been using yours wrong.

thanks M8, hopefuly my skin will be delivered today, and I will be able to finish it off!
The skin didn't come, but I've done a bit more work, and added some extra stuff to the site

As someone who has owned a flip-top, and who's friends currently own them, I can promise all of you that it will, without a doubt, damage your laser. You'll be lucky to get six months of solid use out of that thing before you start to experience problems.
I've already been using one for the last year or so, with no prob's m8, I think some people don't bother to clean their ps2's on a regular basis, and it's the dust that is killing their machines, I would say it's best if you use a flip top, to use a can of air on the console at least once a month.

Nice site zxspeky.. And you are correct on cleaning your PS2 once in a while.. I clean all of my PS2's at least once every 2 weeks or so... The dust can really eat up the lazer if the lazer is exposed to the world..
I might have bought another flip top, but you can't get them in the UK any more, sony have slowed down the pirates who were muscleing in on their trade....daylight robbery!
