Unhappy messiah or neo4 help please!!!!!

sponsored links

hey guys,
i have been thinking about getting one of these chips for my ps2 but i wanted feedback on both. i know the messiah is direct boot while the neo 4 still requires a swap. the question is, which is more reliable? i am also thinking about sending my ps2 to to have them install the chip for me. i just want to know where they are located and whether they are reliable enough for me to send them my ps2. in order to do this though, i ultimately have to choose which chip is better for me. i have a v5 ps2 so i hope there aren't any compatability issues either. let me know if any of you have any pertinent information on this issue.

For a V5 I would recommend a Messiah mod if your only bothered about a no-swap mod, Neo4 does multi-region DVD playback and also removes Macro-vision but you can add these chips to a Messiah modded PS2 if you want...and eccsmods is very reliable, not used him myself but he seems to get nothing but good reports on his installs.

I have a NEO4 and it works greats. Direct boots everything except DVDr, unpatched EA games and original imports.

If I had the chance of getting a Messiah back then I would have definitely taken that route instead of the NEO4. The Messiah has less wires and boots everything! I would have gotten an "M" clone, but unfortunately they were not available for the NTSC PS2's at that time.

By the way ECCSMOD is also the place where I bought my NEO4. Very reliable.
