Sharp LCD screen vs. Samsung... Samsung is better???!!!!
Yep... FINALLY got my own PSP... a JAP 1000k purchased during launch in surprisingly complete Value Pack condition (all materials were left mostly intact)... and there is something on my new one that is not on my brother's 1001 PSP... something called PlayStation Spot.
That's not the most surprising thing about it. As it turns out... the sticky square was no issue at all... no stickiness as far as I am concerned. However, I remember back in 2004/05-ish, there was a rumor that the Sharp LCD screens as I believe I have on my JAP PSP made in Japan were better than the Samsung ones on the "made in China" PSPs as my brother has. Unfortunately... I find the opposite is true! For example, under the "Original" (new) theme, the one with the dual sine waves in the background as opposed to the multiple ripples in the "Classic" theme, when run in Yellow, I find that my Sharp LCD screen's picture looks a bit washed out compared to the crispness found in the Samsung. I'll put up a photo later... feeling kinda lazy right now. I'm not disappointed or anything... just wondering why the rumor was incorrect.
