OK guys, I'm ready to buy a mod chip right now, after some research I'm still undecided on the best modchip to purchase. EasyBuy2000.com has the Magic 3.1 for $19 with free shipping, sounds like a good deal. Or is the Magic V that much better, or is the DMS3 V2.0 and DMS3 V9/V10 ModChip from ModChip.com for $69 the best option since it covers all PS2 consoles V1-V10, (just in case my PS2 fails and I buy a new PS2 I could use that modchip). Ny current PS2 is SCPH-39001 which I think is a V7, can someone verify that just to make sure??? I have several burning softwares like Nero 6 Ultra, RecordNow DX (came bundled with my Sony Vaio), DVD decrypter, and Roxio, all software is 100% legit and licensed. I think after reading several post I will be using Nero for DVD and CD's, since it never failed me in copying music CD's and movie DVD's. Any good advice and/or input is greatly appreciated. Installation should not be a problem since I have experience in electronics and wiring. Last thing any websites to avoid when purchasing modchips?? Thanks!!!
