Compatibility with 1001 unit?

Post by TwinFami » January 9th, 2019, 7:17 pm

My local store got in a PlayStation 1001 unit in box and since I’m an in box collector and it’s the best unit made, I was wondering how it holds up for the PSIO in comparison to the current unit I have which is the 5501. The unit is $70 in box so I definitely want to make sure there’s no issues with the switch board or PSIO on that mode before I buy it and have it modded.

In my case I have the SCPH-1001 (composite outputs on the back) and it works fine with the PSIO. You might want to get the caps replaced as a maintenance measure as it can be potentially beneficial for this particular model. That said it is my understanding that all PSIO compatible models perform the same.

I’ll second the fact that the PSIO works just fine with this model (despite my soldering job not being the best)

I use a SCPH-1002 (early PU-8 board with the older 80-pin HC05) as my main gaming unit and of course, it works fine :P

Good point mentioning the board revision, I would try to avoid PU-7 (systems made very close to release date) due to the texture banding issues.
