    PS3 Slim OG (Clicking drive)

    Probably done to death already but I haz an issue.

    So my PS3 is having trouble reading *Some* Blu-Ray Discs. Most importantly The Last Of Us. By some I think it is only dual layer discs that are causing the issue. A good majority of my games run like a dream still with no clicks at all.

    I can get The Last Of Us to read if I run a DVD lense cleaner disc first or insert the disc 5-6 times. But this is a right pain, once the dies does load I seem to have no issues and it all loads fine from there.

    Options:
    Its way out of warranty and would probably have to pay SONY to fix it.

    I could possible fix it myself if I ordered the parts, anyone had experience? Is it cost effective and does the new drive last? Is it offical?

    Anyone had experience with the Super Slims? K-Mart here is selling the 12GB model for $200au which is -$100 plus then i'd have 2 PS3's essentially and I have a spare 120GB drive from my PS3 sitting around. Are these models any good? I heard you need a very low profile drive to fit in it and my 750GB seagate may not fit?

    Advice please.

    Why not buy another PS3 slim, the first slim, off sites like ebay and amazon?

    Have we had experience with the super slim or are we simply casting it off for being the fugly kid in the group?

    I looked up drives, they want $50 just for the laser off chinese sites like DX and repair sites in Sydney want $150 to do it for me, lol.

    I think I will drop the $200 on the super slim, then maybe give my model to family and they can borrow games.

    With the old model how do I deactivate it and activate the new one?
