405nm laser pointer on the cheap AKA more hackery

In my travels, I found this page describing how to buy a 405nm Blu-Ray laser diode on the cheap in the form of a Blu-Ray drive available for £40 as a PS3 repair part. I was a little skeptical, as the stated reason for the high cost and (at one time) limited availability of the PS3 was the supply of 405nm laser diodes. A little checking revealed that several people had bought these, so I decided to give it a go. I bought mine from samsam888 on eBay. Note that he lists them as coming from Dallas TX, but they really are shipped from Hong Kong. The packaging is sufficient, but not Sony original (mine came in a box marked "TFD display").

It's the real deal (pictures)Collapse )
