As for Microsoft... I'm just tired of it. They almost had me sold on the 360, but why should I pay for something their just going to break. What they did was the same as throwing a ball towards a window. Chances are the window is going to break, That's why you BETA TEST! To see if the console can handle it. And yes I did just compare the Xbox to a Window. Funny thing since Microsoft makes Windows. =D
A lens problem is 60% of the PS3's failure rate, However the Failure rate is speculated between 0.02-0.06. However you are mistaken your own experience with how many others it happens to. I believe you over loaded the laser, most likely because the model to had was not compatible with your outlet. Sony doesn't cover Ebay bid's, and you have to consider how used it was.
