    baysoftgames is where I got mine from for $39.99 with SMD's.

    The only complaint is the packaging it came in. It was horrible. The disks could have fallen out. The box was poorly taped and all crushed. But it was $10 cheaper.

    The cheapest one that I found so far was for $29.99 from www.modchipinc.com that site is very seucure so I feal safe putting my credit card number on there. And if what ever you buy from there doesn't suit you they offer a 30 day money back warranty, no matter what your reason is.

    ub2cool4u, www.modchipinc.com is not that cheap.
    They sell it $29.99 but that is WITHOUT the magic swap disks that most people need. Many other places sell the flip-top's alone for $30, some even less. FireFly-HK sell's flip-top's without the disks for $19.99.

    Don't forget about the shipping from Hong Kong! I don't trust it. I don't want to buy from anyone outside the usa.

    I ordered my fliptop from baysoftgames.com for 39.99 with disks. Added with shipping the final cost was 45.98. My mom sent a check in my mail to them last wed cause she didn't want to use her credit catd online. Still didn't get it yet though. Hopefully it will be here tommorow or monday!!

    The original makers aren't at http://www.ps2fliptop.com/, they are http://www.ps2case.com/. I thought they were affiliated anyway.

    I ordered mine from firefly-hk.com last night. 6 hours later (3AM PST) I got an email saying it has been shipped and they gave me the tracking #.

    I would've gotten from ps2fliptop.com, but firefly's Ocean blue color looks great and it would be the same price as getting it from the USA anyway.

    FireFly (the owner's name is Sarah Lee, like the baked goods) said shipping will take 7 days, so i'm guessing it'll be here the around the same time I get my DVD Burner. The burner was shipped by UPS ground and is scheduled to be here June 4th; 7 days after I ordered it! Sheesh, UPS ground within the USA is going to take as long as Hong Kong shipping.

    Look at the Ocean Blue:

    It comes with matching blue disks too!

    Plus, it doesn't have that "Z" on top of it like the other ones do.

    sp33d they ship out either the same day depending on what time of the day you pay or next day. They are very reliable, I actually just bought a 4'th yesterday and they shipped it out today with a tracking number from UPS. It may cost a few more dollars then the other sites but they are very reliable and I think that's worth a couple dollars more. I have heard that baysoftgames is a little slow to ship or does not ship out items at all but that could be a rumor. And I also have no idea about the z on the top of the fliptop none of mine had that on them.

    Cheib is talking about ps2fliptop.com.
    I have also heard good thing about them and how they usually ship same day or the day after.

    PS2Fliptop.com price matches... Just in case you didn't know. =)

    I've heard bad things about Baysoftgames. If you look at there internet reviews, they are terrible. I've heard of several people saying that they didn't receive packages or items were poorly packed, boxes were crushed and the swap disks could have fallen out of package easily.

    I got my Fliptop, shipping only took 5 days from Hong Kong! It's actually a little darker than the pictures shows on the website, it looks more like the official Ocean Blue Japanese PS2's that Sony makes which looks equally good IMO.

    The Hong Kong shipping is even faster than UPS ground. I still have to wait for my DVD burner which has been in delivery for 6 days already! It is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, maybe then I can try some DVD games.

    I'll post a photo of my flip top case later.

    I had a BAD experience with Firefly-hk.com...

    payment processed fine, fliptop arrived in a timely manner...

    HOWEVER,
    one of the latches on the 'flip lid' was broken, and I can not get the memory card holder to fit onto the flip top.

    I emailed firefly-hk the day I received the fliptop about the broken latch and never heard back from them.

    buyer beware!

    Re: Saveware has high shipping costs.

    You were looking at the UPS handling fee for computers because of the special packaging and work to put together the package. Saveware ships out USPS Priority 2 day delivery for a little over $6 for the Flip Top Cover and Swap Magic Disc's. The combo deals now are only $33.95!

    They reserve UPS for larger packages, IE computers and smaller packages, like the Mod products and Quantity mod products are shiped out United States Postal Service Priority with tracking number sent to you in e-mail and confermation. The USPS Priority is very reliable._X_X_X_X_X_[small]PS2 Ver 7 with Apple Chip - No Swap but chip gets detected by On-Line games so I use the Flip Top
