    It is a solid chip, but simply being solderless doesn't necessarily mean much.

    1. Easier to install (yes)
    2. More Reliable (no) my opinion
    3. If they are so good why does 99% of modders use soldered?

    The Mod chips that need to be soldered are Cheaper that's why

    the reason modders use solder option, nothing is more reliable than a properly soldered system.

    cost is less, but with install its more right.
    most users don't want to play around with their systems internals, a lot can go wrong, and prefer to spend the extra few bucks getting a proper soldered system, everything setup for them, and not risking damaging anything.

    also if you have a v9/v10/v12 you need to apply fixes that need to be soldered.
