Looking at the part names you have provided and the compatability list of the laser you have bought, everything should work perfectly. If you still have doubt with the product you have ordered, googling "KEM-850 PHA" will throw up tons of places with replacement parts for exactly that modell.

thanks for your reply.

but it says in the product title: CECH-4000 KES-850A

i don't get this


CECH-4000 refers to the whole PS3 Super Slim model/gen. Don't worry, it should work.


and KES-850A ??

thanks a lot


Hi! KES-850A would be the laser. The KES850A and KES-850PHA are both lasers for the Super Slim. They might have some small differences (not an expert on this) but since the listing says that it's also comatible with KES-850PHA you should be good. Hope this help!

Oh and, if you have nothing to do with the old laser, I found a cool vid online of what you can do with it:


Imad Knight... You are the best! Thanks a lot
