Personally, I don't trust any clone. Just my own experience with some messiah blue and other Magic clones. Yours may be fine though, I personally have never installed a magic "3". Where did you get it from?

Canceled my order!

I got it from the links on this forum. I read for like an hour and a half before making up my mind and this seemed like the best chip to get because I have a V7 39001 and the new formats are going to be dvd9. So I thought this would be the best way to go.

I guess not!!!!
Peace

Actually, all non-swap chips will run DVD9, this is not affected by the chip, it is laser dependant. Like I said though, you may never have a problem, but that chip is NOT a real Magic chip. If it's not to late to cancel, save yourself some money and get the Apple. I've put at least 30 of these in v7s and they work GREAT.

Cost basically. I've installed both, and I can't find any particular reason to pay the extra money for the Magic. Some people really prefer the Magic though, but I think they are equally capable chips. I'm sure you'll hear some strong opinions from some members though on which is better. What it comes down to though between these chips is personal preference only...
