I would imagine a decent percentage of those who had to buy new systems or send theirs in for repair were dealing with laser issues that they could have easily fixed themselves.

There is news about a class action lawsuit against M$ right now regarding the RROD. It's been on a lot of the big news stations.

What could you possibly be suing for? Microsoft already has a 3 year free replacement warranty, what more could you ask for, pain and suffering from the two weeks it took to get the box back?

Bought mine 01 I think, it's still kicking, though it basically just collects dust at this point, I keep thinking Ima play Shadows again is the only reason why its still hooked up.

Bought one at launch, laser crapped for some but not all games a couple years later. Inspired me to buy HD Advance, which allowed me to continue playing off of hard drive (for some reason most games worked this way). HD Advance saved me some money in other ways, too (suck it, Sony).

Bought one probably somewhere around 2001 timeframe (can't remember exactly though ) and just recently had to self fix it. Although I really haven't played it to much since I got my Wii, minus beating the newest FF game.

I bought one on launch day, and was the only one I ever bought. I will say I stopped playing it as I starting going to strictly PC gaming.

I'm on my 3rd PS2. The first one had laser issues that I was able to work around for a while by adjusting the laser height, but it finally just quit working. When I bought my second one, I bought it used and paid for the extended return policy - that one lasted about 3 months before I had to get another one (covered, thankfully). My 3rd one hasn't gotten all that much use, but it still works.
