I have been getting a lot of slims in lately with dvd issues. Replacing the lens does not fix them i end up having to replace the drive, which are expensive currently.
With originals its either RROD or replace laser and its fixed. I dont charge a lot but since slim drives are $80+ i have to charge more.
But the point is not price its that slims are still new and the amount of calls i get about them is too many. Obviously something is wrong with them.
