    Newer parts and technology does not necessarily mean it's more expensive. Also, given the 2k models are not longer being manufactured it's no surprise the price is rising and will be doing so even more.

    Actually the 2000 screens are better afaik. The 3000 screens introduced a way of expanding the colour depth however the 3000 had another feature which basically made interlacing very noticeable, any fast motion caused horizontal lines to become visible. I have seen the difference in person and there are photographs that show it as well the PSP3000 is a no go for me.

    PSP1000 blurs with motion as does the PSP2000 to a lesser extent the PSP3000 has annoying noticable scan lines through the whole screen.

    I wouldn't call one better over the other to be honest, while it's true the 3k has interlacing issues most of the time aren't even noticeable, at least not more than the 1k and 2k models with their ghosting issues that the 3k "fixed" by interlacing the screen.

    i heard less complaints about the 2000/4's ghosting than the 3000/4's interlacing
    here, they still sell 2000, though it's still cheaper

    Never noticed the ghosting in actual PSP games, but in stuff like gameboy emulation it's quite noticeable and annoying. [​IMG]

    Haven't used a hacked 3000 to test emulation yet.

    $40 for a new screen sucks though. i have a 2000 that just needs a screen oh well no point of getting the screen to fix it. that $40 can go towards my 3ds

    I have a PSP 2000 and the ghosting is very noticeable on certain games. Namely Patapon and Loco Roco. It only seems to happen in those two, possibly because of both of those games' art styles.
