    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!!!

    yes thats a v7. i also hav a v7 with a magic 3.1 and it works great. i recommend gettin a magic v or DMS3 so you dont hav to worry about double check games. but i dont think that should be a problem since there isnt that many double check games out there. i, myself have about 25 games and never ecountered with any double check games. i think they stopped makin those games. if you want to be able to play mp3, divX, etc. then get the DMS3. if not just get the magic v for cheaper. but if you decided to get the magic 3.1, i'll sell you my extra one for $15. and for which sites to avoid, try to avoid gocybershop.com cause many people in here complain about them alot. i order my chip from mod-chip.com and they send it in 1 week with all wires for the installation. they also reply all my emails.

    I briefly read through the posts and can I suggest getting a DUO mod. less wires ,no problems with double check games and it's also not very expensive.

    no...DO NOT get a magic 3.1 in a v7!!...it has problems with some double check games...your best option would be the dms3 although if u are not up to spending that much the magic V it a very good chip and reliable. there are 2 dms3 chips one for v1-v8 and one for v9 and v10
