The laser might or might not last much longer in a version one you never know and also the difficulty of solder the controller points and desoldering the power supply is the major reason why a lot of people wont touch them

I think it's more getting to the bottom of the board than the laser quality....it's a hard to get to it, takes desoldering and u could mess up the power supply...

I would say laser quality. I know I wouldn't touch them either since you could do a great install and find out the laser simply won't then you look like the bad guy.
