    have any of you had experience with both of these?

    Which one would be better to install, and for what reasons?

    If you look around on the boards, generally it seems that people prefer wiikey, and many have had a cyclowiz, but for whatever reason had to remove it, and install a wiikey.

    Don't know about the cyclowiz, but I dropped in a wiikey this weekend, and so far it does everything it says. Seems a little slower loading the disc when you first put it in, but that's it. Backups of my own gamecube games, and wii games work just as well as my originals. Don't have any Japanese imports to try, or any gamecube homebrew to try.

    I would go with a WiiKEY they seem to be much better then the CycloWIZ even with this new software update.

    Ive heard rumors the new CycloWIZ v3.0 Update has damaged some peoples Wii's or really hasnt added all that many new useful features.

    It also seems there is massive support for the WiiKEY out there and a very big community building up, so trouble shooting issues and getting updates for the WiiKEY may proove much easier then with other wii chips.

    So again I'd go with a WiiKEY over a CycloWIZ any day.

    Was the 3.0 a big change? did you notice a difference at all?
