2 Mod or not 2 mod? –
My GF got me a modchip for valentine's day (wierd, but I bet your girls don't do that for you ;P).
Anyway, it's a DMS4 EZI. I know we don't like to talk about such products on this forum I've heard both good and bad things about it and have read the plethora of complaints on their own forum. But I'm looking for some sort of unbiased opinion.
I've got a V7 PS2 with a good size HDD, got a PS1 game exploit triggering Launcher, HDLoader, HDLDumb, FAPlink etc..etc.. all working and am able to connect to the PS2 through my computer to upload backup *.iso's (although I've never been able to get PS2OS to work for some reason, but that's not why I'm posting). I've got swap discs for non-HD compatible backups as well, although I'm very lazy by nature (grad student) and don't like swapping every time I want to play. I don't code, I wouldn't run that Dev.olution stuff, I'm not even sure what it is anyway. I don't do homebrew apps (I'm a biologist, not a programmer) either.
Now, my question is this: Pretend for a sec that DMS4 EZI installs fine and does everything its manufacturers claim it does, what benefit would I be getting over the setup I currently have? Why or why not?
Thanks in advance
I'm really glad that it is working for you, but I hope your ps2 doesn't end up like this: http://ps2newz.net/forums/showthread.php?t=32796
I don't know if this is true but I heard the cd/dvd controller chip heats up pretty hot. It might not be such a good idea putting a lid over it. =/
If the EZI is the no-solder chip, then sell that shite and get an MI, or Crystal chip.
To answer your question... the only thing a mod chip will let you do that you currently cannot is to avoid using a slide card/swap trick. Some have Y-fixes for pal games, too.
The drawbacks are obvious... installation and potentially having to stealth the chip to play certain online games.
In the end, its really a convenience thing i guess
You don't know about the EZI... goto their site and check it out. It's a fully functional non swap modchip. It's like the DMS4 Pro solder chip but they made clips for it to avoid soldering.
