Hello, I am looking for a mod chip for my v7 PS2 that allows me play PS2/PS1/DVD backups/originals, without having to hold reset for 5 seconds and all of that stuff. For a long time, people have been telling me that the Messiah 2 Pro is the best modchip available for the PS2 (others have told me that the DMS3 is the best), but just recently I've heard of the Matrix Infinity and the Crystal Modchips. Anyway my question is, can you please compare and contrast these four different modchips (Matrix, Crystal, Messiah2, DMS3)? What are the good/bad things about them, and how do they compare to each other, in terms of reliability/durability/stability? Do they boot PS1/PS2/DVD's without having to hold reset? Are they "network ready"? I have a version 7 PS2 (scph-39001). Sorry if this question was asked 1000000 times. ps. What is the difference between the Matrix MXL2 and the Matrix Infinity? Do both of them have automatic booting, and is the Matrix Infinity worth the extra few bucks? Thanks a lot in advance!!
