I'd say a low-powered infrared laser. They'd be good for practicing soldering, pressing into a module, etc, but you'd be better off buying an LPC sled for red or IR diodes.

Are you certain? PS1 can't play DVDs last time I checked.
You may be right. I made a quick assumption based on "natural" progression. I have NOT been a gamer since my Commador 64 died!

It would probably still be safe to assume that the PS1 has no worthwhile laser diode in it to be harvested, eh?

Now I feel old ;)

Peace,

Nope, Commadores are older than that! Older than me by a lot, came out in '82.

You need to look elsewhere, DVD burners are the best for low cost easy builds.

You need to wait, being impatient is one of the worst things you can do in a laser build

9 out of ten chance you will kill it, either from static or spikes or erratic powering of the diode. Do not try to run the diode without a driver if you value the diode at all!
