Next up, the controller ports and memory card slots come out as one assembly.

These slots won't take your fancy 512 GB micro SD cards, but the 1 MB PlayStation memory cards were split into 15 separate memory blocks, so you could save your progress for multiple games on one card.

The CD laser and motor assembly rests on three pegs secured in place by rubber grommets. This allows the entire mechanism to move around slightly and absorb vibrations from the spinning disc.

Some argue that early models with RCA jacks offered superb audio quality when playing music CDs, but it's a subject that's been debated for as long as the console has been around.

In case your mother never taught you: NEVER TOUCH THE LENS.
