I did and his reply was:
t is your ps3 the one you sent me, check it you will see the crap at the side air vents, I never even touch the drive, you do not touch the drive when downgrading, Do you think that after everything that has happened I am not going to test it ! I played Batman blu ray on it on Thursday night from start to finish with no issues.
I put back every single screw that I take out of peoples consoles because its their console and I look after other peoples property. Your console came to me with no seal in place so its not me who tampered with the drive.
Regarding the drive It must have been damaged in transit which is not surprising really when its only got a couple of carry bags for protection.
Oh and the one you sent back, perfect when horizontal and a few noises when vertical hardly chain saw sounds has you described it.
Do me a favour don’t contact me again you have been the biggest pain in the neck I have ever come across.
Which is the strangest reply I've ever heard. He's defending sending me a piece of ****. He's lying all over that reply. For a start the PS3 I sent him had never been opened. Second the PS3 came back missing 3 screws, when he objects that. He's a ****ing liar.
