I got my PSP but...

Well I have my PSP, now I'll list the bad, there are two dead pixels, and three bubbles on my screen, the door on the UMD drive is also loose on one side. The good news is that all my buttons work, and I've done a few tests after immediately found my dead pixels and bubbles. I've twisted my PSP, I've held it upside down and twisted it, and sctratched the screen. Despite the UMD drive being loose on one side, I couldn't get it to shoot discs, even when I held it upside down. I used my nail, DS stylus and a small screwdriver and there werent any scratches. Since my PSP is defective, I'm taking it back and exchanging it, but I'm keeping the Spiderman 2 UMD, memory stick and cloth. I'm rather annoyed at this too, since this was right after I found a defect in my DS' top screen, and now I'm debating on wether I should send that in or not.

Damn straight. What have I been saying all this time? I guess I'm one of a small select few individuals here that actually uses his brain and doesn't rush out to invest in hype. You should've listened when people like myself said to wait and see what happens.

I was able to exchange my PSP, now I don't have any dead pixels, but I do have bubbles, and they can only be seen when the PSP is off. Since the bubbles don't affect the screen I'm not exchanging it.

Where did you get your PSP? I might get one soon so I want to make sure I can return it for a new one if there are any problems.

I got mine at Blockbuster, thier pretty nice about it too, they don't even re ring you up for defective items. Thier gaming part is much better than any EB or GS thats for sure.

Every PSP and every picture I have seen of PSPs are like this. Mine is a few millimeters off on the side opposite the latch, I think it varies between units, but it is an annoying cosmetic fault.

That's just stupid. :kill: Do you always try to destroy your new stuff after you buy it with your hard earned money.

The lid to the UMD is like this because the lock isn't in center.

He was planning on returning it anyway. I don't see any reason not to test it.
