Re: Experience with KSM-440BAM from totalconsole?

I received the Totalconsole laser this week-end and fitted it today, finally! Of course I checked it versus a genuine KSM440BAM (lifted off a PSone) and now believe it's definitely genuine too. The markings are exactly the same, everywhere (including the sled motor board), the plastic parts definite...

Re: Experience with KSM-440BAM from totalconsole?

About a month, for an item in stock, you must be joking.
I wished they replied to emails to at least explain what's going on.

Re: Experience with KSM-440BAM from totalconsole?

So a bit of a warning, I ordered 1 a week ago and while they marked it as shipped, the package still hasn't been handed over to USPS..
My friend in Finland ordered 2 weeks ago and has the same tracking indication (USPS Awaiting Item) as of this day, too.
Buyer beware..

One other thing to do is look at the little PCB on the sled motor and see if the markings differ from the Sony ones.
Good idea, Apsley could you give it one last check? ^^;

Re: Experience with KSM-440BAM from totalconsole?

Thank you very much Apsley, I see a very small difference in the gray plastic part, the mold "circles" appear fainter. So does the printing on the blue sticker, hmm.. I wonder what the experts TriMesh and Shadow think about those close up shots 8-) rama3, that's what the site claims but how can you ...

Thanks for your inputs. I'm dubious as well TriMesh.. ^^;
The product can be seen better in this video:

I'm trying the difference game with a known genuine KSM-440BAM but so far no obvious difference..

Experience with KSM-440BAM from totalconsole?

Hi, I'm wondering if someone already bought a KSM-440BAM laser assembly from this website: http://www.totalconsole.com/KSM-440BAM-Laser-Lens-Drive-For-Sony-PS1-PlayStation-1-PSOne-PS-One--BRAND-NEW_p_370.html They claim they are brand new AND original from Sony, not cheap knockoffs. I really could u...

Re: [Diagram]SCPH-1000/3000 PU-7 MM3 Stealth Install

The other difference is that the SCPH-xxx3 models use the same 7.5IRE black level that NTSC:U/C consoles do, rather than the 0IRE level used in Japan. I never understood the impact of the different IRE levels when it comes to consoles. For instance if a JPN system and US system were connected to th...

Oh, ok, I thought these had 'Dual Shock' written on the back label, not 'Analog Controller'.

Re: Question about rare Dual Analog-controller

Strange, I own a Sony Analog Controller SCPH-1200, rev A (as written on the backlabel), made in japan, and if anything, I feel it's actually more reactive (less lag) than any other PSX pad i've tested, including the DualShock.

Re: Getting best possible RGB picture out of PS1

I've never thought about that, but it makes sense... if the composite encoding/decoding takes some extra time, then composite picture would be moved towards right, or the other way around: RGB picture would be moved towards left? So that's why! I've always wondered why the slight difference. Yes yo...

Re: Getting best possible RGB picture out of PS1

The slight horizontal position shift when using RGB versus composite is completely normal and happens with all consoles, don't worry about it. ;)

Re: MKPSXISO - A PlayStation ISO Maker to Replace BUILDCD

Currently, I just don't have time to work on such a tool as my free time is prioritized for art or continuing development of my very own 3D engine for the PSX especially when I have a full-time job now so I don't have much free time as I used to. I've been considering making such a tool to supplant...

Re: Getting best possible RGB picture out of PS1

They are indeed indestructible and rather hard to open cleanly, but it's totally doable.
Since I'll never use composite video, I thought I might as well modify the cable rather than the system..

Re: Getting best possible RGB picture out of PS1

If anyone's interested, I modified the original Sony PS1 RGB Cable (EURO-AV as they call it), to replace Composite by Luma-Sync. Here's what it looks like.

Re: MKPSXISO - A PlayStation ISO Maker to Replace BUILDCD

I don't have plans to make a GUI version of MKPSXISO at the moment as it is not really important considering how simple putting together a build script using the included example script as a base is a piece of cake. I beg to differ, while it's clearly not hard putting together a script, a GUI would...
