    There is a little tiny spot near the Select button on the PSP which never goes away. It's a bit dusty near the D Pad and the line on the left of the PSP screen has some noticeable defective on it but can't tell what it is.

    My UP on my D-pad is not sensitive at all.
    And most people should have this one: diagonals on the D-pad suck balls. They're SO hard to do. >.>
    And I don't wanna do that mod thingy for it.

    My PSP has got a hairline crack on the bottom right corner of its screen, and the silver circle on the UMD cover is scratched up, screen too.

    Red circle(GoW edition FTW!)on back is scratched, paint is peeling off the top and bottom of the UMD doors(very small, but still feelable)

    The buttons are a bit dusty and I don't know how to get rid of it (though I'm not sure if thats what you'd call a defective) and the slot to my MSProDuo card has been torn off.

    Got it out of the box with one dead pixel.

    I could have returned it, but it hasn't bothered me.

    It sounds like I'm lucky compared to others.

    I think there is a homebrew app that fixed that. [​IMG]

    My UMD drive slot has always stuck out on the left side, very noticeable. I got it at launch, and I was really tempted to exchange it, but I was too excited to have one, so I dealt with it.

    unless it fixed itself, i should still have an odd pixel.
    the pixel behaves like it should, untill it should display black.
    it displays white instead of black.

    Scratched ring, and missing the analog nub.

    Nothing too major.

    Nothing other than the standard wear you get such as the wee hairline scratches the silver circle in back can get from setting it down. I got lucky with my slim, not a gimpy pixel blown or any other of the minor knowns.

    No. It fixes "stuck" pixels. Not dead ones.

    The way I understand, nothing can fix a truly dead pixel.

    I've tried homebrew apps and mp4 videos meant to unstick pixels. No luck.

    Thanks tho.

    Edit - I've always kept my PSP in a hard plastic clear case. That's taken a lot of abuse. I'm pleased with how well my PSP looks out of the case.

    my PSP 1003 shoulder buttons are loose, square and cross buttons are loose, d-pad moves about like the thumb stick, the screen has taken some wear and the UMD open button is at an angle. Oh, and it's currently bricked. [​IMG]
