    My old modded PS2 fried up after about 3 months. This was my second modded PS2 that has fried up in about the same amount of time.

    Tomorrow, i am going down and buying one of the new slim version of PStwo's, and i was considering buying one of those swap disk thingys. My question is -- What's involved in using one of those? How exactly do you get them to play your backups. Does it take a long time to do the operation each time you want to play a game? Do i have to open up my PStwo in order to use the swap-disk system, thereby voiding my warranty like if i was to install a modchip?

    The reason why i am considering doing this is because, i have heard about the new PStwo lasers being crap and burning out wether youi have a modchip or not. So i would like to keep my warranty good, incase the laser does burn up and i have to take it back.

    I have also considered installing a matrix infinity chip with the new laser fix that they have described on their website -- http://www.infinitymod.com/cgi-bin/matrix/site.pl?page=laserv12 --. And i was wondering if anyone knew if this fix would be able to keep the laser from frying.

    So basically i would like you guys advise on this and tell me what you would do if oyu were in my position.

    Also i was wondering if the swap disk method works with all backups and is relatively easy to do, how come everybody doesn't use it? Again, i have no idea if it is easy to use and/or works with all backups.

    Thanks
