I haven't been chip shopping since I picked up a neo 2.0 a long time ago. I recently sold that PS2 and now have a nice new v7. All I'm really after is something that works, and works reliably. I ordered an MXL2 sort of spur of the moment, and now I'm second guessing myself on whether it was the right choice. It hasn't been shipped yet though, so I could probably still change the order.
