    I just got a new DMS 4 Pro SE. Davbere modded my v.4 PS2 with a Matrix Infinity. He does great work. I purchased a v.9 with a DMS 4 Pro SE from a friend of mine, Davbere did the original job. He does fantastic work. In fact I was having some issues with the laser and he guided me through cleaning it and repositioning it and it's working great now. The friend I bought it from has a couple little kids, so you can imagine what they can do to a PS2. Business is booming for teammodders.com, that's because they're reputable, honest, and do quality work. Don't just take my word for it, look around PS2scene.org, dms3.com forums, and any other sites Davbere's on and see what people say about him.

    I went with XMODDS for my PS2, I would've went with Davbere but it was taking too long for me to hear from him. He last contacted me alst night but nothing all day, I think he was probably busy with other orders trying to get them out. I looked through your trusted sites and xmodds.com was one so I went with them. $260 flat for a V14 DMS 4 Pro SE and that included shipping. They told me it would go out Thursday but it may go out tomorrow, just contact them via email or AIM for an update.

    Yeah xmodds does good work. Teammodders is real busy, I can understand you not wanting to wait. When it comes to modchips, I don't like to wait either. Good luck and enjoy your DMS 4.

    yeah I would agree go to ps2-scene.org and you will find many reputable modders but no mention of teammodders, but you will find davebere as well as many "other" great installers.

    Hey everyone, you want to see artwork? Check out either David Berens or spedmetal at www.norcalmods.com . I've done business with both and these guys are true artists. Examine how these 2 artists install a modchip and then investigate how others do it. You will see how these guys belong in a very select club of their own.

    DAMN nice job there, I must say!

    Dave had just gotten back to me today about the premod, I already paid XMODDS though so i'll have to let Dave do my next one.

    I hear good things about them both though so i'm sure either one is a very good choice. Not to mention XMODDS is getting mine out tomorrow and is overnighting it so i'll get it on Friday.

    Yeah Dave's the best in my opinion. There are several others who do quality work, Xmodds included.

    You chose well going with Xmodds. The admin and I are friends and he is a very good guy. Other places sell refurbished junk salvaged from eBay's grave yard.

    Props to Xmodds!

    I visited normcalmods today looking at the gallery at the things you've done. They look very professional. I was basically trying to find someone that did it for under $300 but was reputable and did a good job.

    I'm an XBOX guy myself so I modded my own xbox, I burnt 1 in the process, but I successfully modded 4. I'm just new to the PS2's so I didn't want to take that chance.

    When I visited normcalmods prior to choosing XMODDS I didn't see any premod's and that was before I starting visiting the various forums.

    Yeah I dont currently sell pre-mods. Xmodds has a great price on pre-modded slims. We did sell pre-mods back when the V9/10 was still on the selves but haven't since the slims appeared.

    Okay here's a challenge. Look at the two photos directly above this post. Everyone knows Dave Berens is one of the best. Spedmetal (norcalmods) should also be included in that select club of "artistic modders". These are the modders who we all strive to impersonate. Who else (provide website or photo) is of the same caliber? Who is in that small select few whose mods are freaking amazing? I believe Netmech of ps2-scene.org is also a member of this select few but I couldn't find a photo at the time of this post but I remember being blown away by his mods. Who else is the best of the best (artistically)? I'm going to acquire and post this list in the future.

    Netmech does great work as well. He has a small gallery available let me see if I can find that link.

    Remember it's good if the soldering looks nice and neat, but it's how the system performs that's important. Truth be told, if you're willing to learn, anybody can become an expert solderer. That's what I've been told by a couple modders. Most of us just don't have the time to do so. Anyway yeah there are several good modders around, kinda like different media, people will swear by anybody who does right by them.

    Oh yeah totally correct! Looks are really just for show and as long as good standard practices are used the install will work well no matter how it looks. Others will try and make you think otherwise, great point Tokijin. Many even get sucked in by the "looks" of the install when performance is the factor they should be conceded with seeing how the install will most likely never be seen anyway ... wooohoooo!!!!

    Yeah the prettiest soldering job in the world isn't going to help if your laser or LA chip is fried lol.

    Yeah its a damn shame the PS2 is built so crappy, not even the Romeo mod can protect the console 100% of the time from laser burnout and this is because Sony makes crappy lasers that come out of their factory from day one with defects... shame just a shame I say!

    Yeah I've read v.4-7 PS2's have really reliable lasers. I've got a v.4 that's going strong after 5 years, the last six after being modded with a MI. I baby it with quality Taiyo Yuden media. That's all I use for PS2 backups.
