    Hi guys i hav gathered some knowledge about modchips which i wanted to share with u and help u guys to buy one
    Basically buying a modchip lot depends on how much u want to spend

    DMS3- Its a really cool chip, no doubt about that
    It has many new features which other chips dont hav like playing DIVX movies listening to MP3s etc
    And this modchip can be upgraded via CD
    So If u buy this chip , u will be able to upgrade it using a Cd in future with better features
    If u want to spend more money on buying a chip go with this mod
    Cost - 60$

    Messiah 2 pro - Its the best chip around in the market for booting games.It has a new code which lets u play all the games perfectly
    If u r not likely to spend more money on DMS3
    Go with M2pro

    Apple 2 pro/ mini apple pro - From wat i hav heard it is a better chip than than earlier one
    It has a new code and its best chip which soothes ur pocket
    Cost 20$


    Magic 3.1- I hav this chip with me
    Its a good chip to get
    It boots every backup which i own that is vice city splinter cell def jam vendetta etc.
    Its the most cheapest chip around
    So i hav got this chip and would suggest all of u if u r not likely to spend money on M2pro or DMS3 getr a apple 2 pro/ mini apple pro or a Magic 3.1
    Cost 20$

    Conclusion
    DMS3>Mes2pro>Magic 3.1 or Mini apple pro/apple 2 pro

    You left out no-solder modchip
    I'll take the liberity
    The no-solder chip is not the most advance chip. It's basically a fancy way to do the swap trick, but with swap magic disk, it's a good deal for newbie who want to get started without sending there ps2 away or expermenting with soldering.It a very easy install that just about anybody can do.If you don't mind swaping disk and you can't solder, this is the chip for you.__
    cost$12 for the chip alone to $35 for chip plus swap magic disks__X_X_X_X_X_[small]say hello to my lil friend[/small]

    Will the no-solder chip play those games like splinter cell that have a double-check?

    Thanks Billz to add info on No solder mod
    To wolfie
    i would suggest u to buy a soldering chip
    Go for a Apple or a magic
    If u dont want to spend much
    These no solder mods r pieces of crap
    Donot work with every game
    Yet its ur choice how much u want to spend on buying a chip
    Hope this helps

    telescope - how can something be a piece of crap if a person likes it? yes the no-solder mods are less reliable, but some people think this is a small price to pay to avoid soldering their PS2. Just because you prefer the solder chips does not mean the no-solders are crap (hell i should know, i've had no-solders smoke 2 of my PS2's, but i still wouldn't suggest they are crap). I know you've been around here for a while, please refrain from bashing chips just because you dont care for them. some people simply hate the thought of soldering on their system and the no-solders are just what they want.

    billz - good call, everyone needs to bookmark that thread for times like this.

    Umm, you got something misunderstood. I was not "laying comments" towards you, so don't go throwing out assumptions.

    Theres also the fliptop which is the best way to go instead of non solder. it'll play games that non solder will not. so if you don't want to take the risk of installing a bad chip or soldering and want somehting betta than non solder, go fliptop.

    eieio what games can you play on the fliptop that you can't with a no-sodler?You may enjoy the fliptop but why slam the no-solder in the process one could say"get a no-solder instead of getting any ugly fliptop that easily damages orginals and backup if you open the lid to early" not tryin to start a flame war but to make a point. Talk up your mod if you enjoy it and want other to enjoy what you have but not at the expense of other mods that you find do be a competive alternative!

    ModIt and everyone else that is still lookin for cdloader, you can find it here: http://www.saveware.com/CDLOADER.ZIP just remember that it will NOT work with a v7 motherboard, that's what Zoneloader is going to do, or swap magic 3.0 IF it ever comes out.
