    Since there are so many conflicting reports on this model, I wanted to make sure (once and for all) that if this model, the [bold]SCPH-39001/N[/bold] is the same as [bold]SCPH-50000[/bold] that was released in Japan a while ago?

    If not, what is it then?

    1) Is it the exact same model as the current "stand alone" [bold]SCPH-39001[/bold] models, just bundled with a Network Adapter in a fancy box?

    2) Also is it considered a V8 or V9 model? (or even V7)

    3) Is [bold]Magic 3.1[/bold] compatible with this model?

    4) Why the [bold]SCPH-50000[/bold] emphasized the DVD-/+RW compatibility? Aren't the current models (39001) compatible already?

    5) And last but not least, should I wait for the [bold]SCPH-50000[/bold] or have my current [bold]SCPH-39001[/bold] chipped? I really don't care about the the new features such as Progressive Scan or built-in IR for DVD Remote, my concern is DVD-/+RW compatibility.
    Many thanks in advance!

    The 39001/N systems are just a V7. Thats it. You should just go ahead and get you regular V7 modded. There is no chip out yet that works w/ the 50001 model yet in the US and it may be a while before one does. Your V7 will be more than adequit for you modding and back up needs.
