Works very well – Repair Parts Replacement Laser Drive Module for PS3 Reviews

posted by JLGuerreiro on 08/08/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Easy to replace Works very well Comes in a package that protects it
Cons:
None really, this small part is just for replacement over your older and broken one
Other:
The PS3 disassemble until you reach and take out the old laser is a little bit tricky, replacing the part is not difficult, BUT putting the drive back together is the really complicated part. Pay attention to how everything was especially when you open the optic disk drive, there's a part with lots of plastic pieces, gears and coils, if you mess that up, It'll be a real pain to put back together - and the PS3 wont take disks anymore.
Bottomline:
The part is great, replacing on the PS3 is not that hard, just be cautious and you can save a lot of money repairing it yourself. worked fine on a PS3 Slim 160GB
