I used search but had trouble finding any info on this. I've been looking to either get a swap magic or a mod chip, and was wondering if there were any great benefits over the other. I realize Swap is solderless and does what I want out of it Import/Backup, but I was curious if there were any other issues with Swaps. Mod is the way to go if you can from my understanding.
I'd do a mod chip but I think I'd be stuck installing it on my own. I have no soldering experience too, mind you, short of seeing others do it ( ). So I think I'd end up just with fried PS2 instead of modded PS2. I'd opt to have a pro install it but its a V1 and people only install for V4 and above these days. I've read around and from what I've seen, I can say the system still boots well, I haven't fallen victim to dieing DVD drive....yet (*knock on wood*).
Just trying to get some input.
