About the package affyPLM, I would recomend:
1.- Read the vignette:
affyPLM: Model Based QC Assessment of Affymetrix GeneChips
2.- Go to the Ben Bolstad web page, where you can see useful images of artifacts and "bad" chips:

About the arrays quality, I would recommend to do some quality controls of the Affy package (boxplots, histograms, images of the chip, RNA degradation plots, etc.)
