    Here is a fact, by using mod chip, you cannot play your back up online. But with swap disc, you can. Second, you will risk losing your warranty if you install a mod chip. Third swap disc is easy and cheap, why not use it instead?

    Go swap magic I use it and its great

    Unless you are really comformtable with soldering I say swap magic and a flip top is the easy way to go. Swaping discs kinda sucks but ruining your PS2 would suck more.

    Okay the "warranty" myth is just that. If you've had your PS2 longer than 90 days your warranty is void anyway. If your comfortable with a soldering iron then go mod chip. If your not then get Swap Magic. If you get Swap Magic though, I reccomend getting a fliptop case. If you get a fliptop, your gonna break that warranty sticker anyway. Now the slide card is a bit tricky, I do not reccomend that cause it will burn out the motor in your DVD drive. With the fliptop you never have to open the DVD drive. (Plus if your gonna spend 20 bucks on Swap Magic you might as well spend another 20 for a fliptop) I'm with Jizmak on the Swap Magic (probably the only thing we agree on ;) A good place to get a good deal on these is at www.clearxbox.com

    well actually Jizmak, you can play your back up onlin wth a mochip with a few exceptions, and socom 2 being one of them. and you dont get the features of most modchips with swap magic. so, which mod is right for ou, only you can decide gta3, if you want extra features and not have to worry bout swapping out disks, if that doesnt bother you, get swap magic. but in the long run, i think modchips are worth it, specially if you get one like matrix or dms. goodday

    Then i have to know how to solder,
    have the equipment to do it.(small mm soldering tips <.035 mm).
    If you have done it then you know its NOT EASY.
    I like to make sure people know that before they
    Decide to go that route.

    Plus some modchips add voltage to the laser
    burning it out quicker.

    Ill stay with swapmagic.
    It takes an extra 10 seconds and its easy
    And cheap.

    witht he new dms4 e.z.i.* you dont have to know how to solder, and they say it should take a newbie like 15 minutes to install, so now you have a modchip that you didnt have to worry bout messing up soldering, or paying 60-100+ bucks to have it sent somewhere to be installed. and best of all, still no swapping. and most modchips i believe can go online as long as you patch the DNAS.

    *the dms4 e.z.i. requires your ps2 be v4 or up, so as long as you dont have v1-3 then you should be ok, if you do, then the swap magic or professional installation is the thing for you.

    Truly Intelligent Modchip

    The E.Z.I. range of Modchips use an advanced Logic design and LED staus display panel to detect and indicate the connection of each patching line and the patching signal integrity. This is a World's first!

    -----------------------------------------------------

    DMS4 mod-chip, but you didn't want to risk soldering one into your PS2 console? Well, now you can have the best of BOTH worlds- introducing the DMS4 E.Z.I. (Effort Zero Installation), the world´s first truly solderless mod-chip for the PS2 console! After 18 months of exhausting development using the latest in Japanese Micro Molding Technology, the DMS4 Team has achieved what most said to be impossible- a 100% solderless, auto-boot/auto-detect, and truly intelligent and revolutionary mod-chip for PS2!

    Connection is achieved through a DSP (Digital Signal Processor) clip, BIOS clip, and Eject signal FFC adapter facilitating ease of connection through Plug and Play Technology. The E.Z.I. Lite and Pro are the first chips developed that successfully implement an advanced signal integrity detection system, and include an E.Z.I. LED panel to display the signal status of each and every signal required for successful patching.

    The self-test system will display a Green LED status for each and every pin which is correctly connected to the PS2, and a Red LED will indicate to the user that he has not connected the BIOS, DSP, or Eject connection assemblies correctly, and identify precisely which terminal has an issue too! Of course the DMS4 E.Z.I. mod-chips preserve the full array of features offered by their solder installation brethren: The 2MB flash memory offered by the Pro is more than sufficient for storage and management of many Homebrew applications, whilst the Lite version allows the user to auto boot all media types and manage applications through DEV.olution Mode 1 or 2.

    Finally, the PS2 E.Z.I. mod-chips include everything required to connect to PS2 versions v5-v11, and a PSTwo (v12) version is under development for release early in the new year as well! The DMS4 E.Z.I. chips go on sale at the end of November, and those interested can PRE-ORDER yours shortly from www.Divineo.com! Attached below are several thumbnails that link to HIGH-RES exclusive pics of the DMS4 E.Z.I. completely solderless PS2 mod-chip. Enjoy!
