    Hi, I am just wondering something, Is it better to buy a new PS2 (v9/v10), a refurbished one or the new PStwo? Which one will last longer and be good value. As well which one is easy to modchip?
    Thanks in advance,
    Matt

    buy a new one definately. The new ones are a million times more reliable. You never really know what you're getting from a refurbed one. You should check out www.electronicunderworld.com for some pymp shyt. Also, newer ones are usually harder to mod.

    the new pstwos have known problems with the laser and some even say they have problems with swap magic.
