By all means, do your review. However, what people must be aware of is the "one off" nature that seems to be obvious with the Magic chips. What I mean is that the chip may work fine in one console, but refuse to work properly in another. Be it version differences or game differences, a Magic may work perfectly in one but not the other. I have seen it too many times where 1 person will say, "Hey, the Magic works great in my console". Then, 5 people will say, "Hey, the Magic doesn't work for crap in my machine." The big problem here is the ratio of working consoles to non-working consoles is so largely skewed to the non-working side using the Magic that it is not even worth a try. Chances are better that it won't work in your console. Charlie has explained it very well in one of his posts. It comes down to booting strategies. The Magic team is simply not doing what is necessary, in their code, to account for all possibilities on all consoles....thus, the inconsistency between different models and/or games. Simply for these reasons, your review will not end it once and for all, but will merely provide another supporting argument for the working side or non-working side.
