Quote from: IJTF_Cinder on February 12, 2009, 06:31:17 pmQuite frankly, I'd have to disagree entirely anyway based in part on what Kendrick said.ICs from the 80s and newer, are more reliable than hard drives with moving parts to fail and optical media where (And yes I know this isn't the problem it was some years ago) the dye WILL rot.

But I do have a question that I don't feel has been satisfied: Won't the analog AV connector or RF connector on many game consoles start to naturally degrade in quality?
QuoteI am assuming the AV connector on, let's say, the Super NES, uses copper contacts or pins that will oxidize or just plain wear out after years of plugging and un-plugging AV connectors into them.
