Doess it effect my Playstation in any way ?

Assuming its properly fitted it does NOT :
Affect your ability to play your existing European PSX games
Make your PSX less reliable

What about my Playstations warranty ?

Yes you will lose remainder of the warranty on the PSX.

Bear in mind a well-used or older PSX (especially those that have had a hard life) with poor laser

How much does it cost ?

I decided to release the source code so its free.
