Exclamation buying modchip asap. need opinion.

sponsored links

I have just started learning how to back up my ps2 games and dvd's. For the past week i have spent hours checking out all the modchips on the market for my ps2 v9. The two that i am considering are the matrix infinity and magic v50k. They seem to be pretty much the same deal. Both say they will load any region,any format,any ps2/ps1 game. Are there any drawbacks to either of them and what are they? Is there anything else i need to pick up while I'm getting the chip, like the new laser chip? Ive heard stories about lasers failing after mods are done. I could really use some experienced help here. If you know of any chips better than these two please let me know. I want the best on the market and money isnt a consideration. Along with my chip I'm going to be purchasing hdadvance2.0 w/maxtor 120gb hdd. Any opinions on this would be good to.

both are good chips. for the v9 you do need a laser mod such as the romeo mod doing with it though.
As the handle suggests why not try the ghost2, it's compatable with the v9/v10 so no laser mod required and it'll auto boot all discs so no modes to select! full spec

for all your premod needs
