modchips are better, hands down.
i used a plug mod and it was good, i didnt mind swapping discs, but I hated the fact that I could not play games like MGS and Chrono Cross. So I bought a 4 wire mod from kya (i cannot have a stealth mod, i have a 1001), installed it, then finished Metal Gear Solid and all was good.

Thumbs up Mod Chip Done Near York?

I've seen a Playstation Chipped before, and seems pretty straight forward, although I know you need a 15w Soldiering Iron..

What I'm wondering is:

Do I buy one? and Where from?


As I may only use the Iron this once, do i just pay someone to do it?

in that case where could I get it done near York?

Gotta agree with the majority.Mod chip wins hands down.Have a look at Chips are cheap and they have a diagram 4 all psx versions and 4 ps1.I've used them 4 some time and they havn't let me down yet.
Also get the lowest wattage soldering iron that u can get. 15W is good any higher is not recommended. I'd also advise getting the thinnest tinned wire u can get. The wire that comes free with twocoms chips is 2 thick. Especially if u need 2 do the colour correction on the back of the ps1 .
Maplins do a gr8 range of irons and accessories.
If u r just doing it as a 1 off 4 urself then pay someone else as its a hell of a lot cheaper
