highly recommend. 6 months ago my PS3 had ylod. Ordered kit. Its been working ever since (its now July). All I can say is take your time (4hrs for me), lay out parts as you go (you'll be stripping it to bare bones). FOLLOW DIRECTIONS. They are easy to follow. Get muffin tins to put small parts & screws in and label what step they were removed so that when you put it back together its easy.
