    good - it has a sleep feature so once it boots up it is undetectable (online and for streaming games like the getaway)

    bad- it has a tendancy to freeze up
    (you can sometimes fix this by tapping the ps2 on the top where the reset switch is lol)

    No you need a DVD-R burner DVD+R ok for v5 and up.
    Magic 3.1 fixed the freeze problem the Magic 3.0 had
    Magic's have trouble booting on some PS2's
    Magic 3.1 won' work with some games Max Payne Duex ex and probably others.
    Messiah 2 works with everything and does not have the boot problem.
