    If you have a 1.6 xbox, no matter what, youre gonna be soldering.Its also not that the solderless dont WORK as good, its that its just not as good a connection, I use solder mods, and you can kick em etc, and the chip doesnt dislodge.
    Any decent modchip is good really, its more down to the bios, it needs to be patched for large hdd support, otherwise youll get 137gb max.
    if you want a nice easy bios flash, xecuter, xenium, etc are real easy. Price wise, if you mainly just want your xbox to play your bakups, run the apps like xbmc, emulators etc, then xecuter2.6 is the best value (preflashed with cromwell, very easy to flash a bios to, and easy to flash from evox) Plus I love the hdd /Lan lights etc on the 2.6 switch
    regarding the hdd brand, havent come accross a hdd that DOESNT work yet, and only 1 that didnt lock (thats cos it was an older ATA66 drive)
    you can get a 200gb drive now for about $90 sometimes even less.
    I know a great site for white label OEM drives, with a 1 year warranty, pm me if you need the info or any further help:)

    I recommend the xecuter 2.6 lite. I've installed over 30 of them with no problems. As for where to get it, I get mine from www.system-mods.com or www.modchip.ca
