I can't find any at sega 16 - I have no idea if i need to use a soldering iron at any point (or need to desolder something on the new laser) or if its fairly straightforward to replace the laser like with dreamcasts. Any info would ...

Re: Nintendo UK's customer service is woeful...

Re: Anyone got a RG digital subscription?

Wow that really is a division 4 scanner they're using.... :shock: , is it full issues though? With adverts front and back covers etc? Might actually be handier for the future to have everything digital.... and i guess in theory you could just print it if you really liked an issue or article?
