I'm getting ready to order my first modchip (actually, I'm going to buy a pre-mod). The Duo 3 Gold was recommended as maybe being the best chip for me. I really only need a chip that plays PS2 imports abd backup discs. I probably don't need a chip with all the advanced features. On the other hand, I'd prefer to buy a high-end chip. Basically, I want the most reliable, stable chip possible. Any reason to consider saving a few dollars with the Duo Gold?
