For a while now I have been pondering whether to sell my V4 PS2 and upgrade to a newer unit and get a modchip installed. But after seeing all the problems with the new chips etc I think for the moment I will stick with what I have.
Two years ago I bought a Neo 2.5 chip (which I installed myself) and use the Blue Boot CD along with DMC V1. I havn't had one problem so far. Even the new games work fine (I only use Verbatim DVD-Rs). Why in the world would i want to change the status quo. I quess if I can find a nice preloved moded PS2 I would consider it but at the moment I can happily put up with changing 2 discs to play my games. (which I only do every few weeks anyway).
We may thinks things have advanced.... Hmm. Judging by this forum I am not quite sure
