It's cheap and it really works! It is also very easy to install even if you don't have experience with electronics.
It reads original DVDs and backup-CDs without any problems, but backed up DVDs are problematic. You should use only good blank DVDs. Otherwise your PS2 might not be able to read them.
It is compatable with almost every PS2 slim (entire scph 7xxxx and 9xxxx series). However it will not work in units with SPU3170! If you are not sure which laser is installed in your PS2 google SPU3170 and compare pictures with your PS2. You don't even need to disassemble your console to check this. Just open the lid and you will see your laser unit.
Do not forget to remove protective solder! Heat it up with soldering iron and it will come off easily.
If you wish to test your laser before putting back PS2 together hold two swithes: the first one is near the power button and the second is on the left side from DVD drive. Don't forget to put a game in and DO NOT WATCH ON WORKING LASER!
Don't throw away your old PS2! It's easy to fix it!
