    I've never personally used usbextreme but I would imagine that since it is USB, loading would be slower than if reading from a actual disc. Swaping discs can get annoying but it doesn't ruin the ps2, so long as you do it right and be careful.
    So I would go with swapmagic if those were my options. Though if your slim is a v12 or v13 you have the option of installing HD Connect. This makes it so your slim has support for a harddrive through the use of an IDE cable (much faster than USB).

    You do not need swapmagic unless you are going to be running a backup of usbextreme. So in your case I would just recommend buying usbextreme instead of swapmagic.
