    I bought a used v9 PS2, and am considering purchasing a fliptop to assist me in playing my backups. However one thing has got me concerned.

    When I bought this, the guy behind the counter said that its better to have the product sitting on end, instead of flat to help the lifespan of the laser. If I continue doing this, how will that affect my fliptop and game usability? It seems that it would be better for it to be down flat?

    BTW I amd considering buying my fliptop from www.ps2fliptop.net.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    having it sitting on it's end shouldn't effect it. however 95% of the people who have a ps2 have it lay flat and haven't had any laser probs. It really doesn't matter.

    with the fliptop installed, it is much easier to lay it flat.

    So the whold thing for standing it on end for better laser life probably originated with the first few versions? Interesting how things like that can continue to propagate.
