    Hi, I found that this was the cheapest for GENUINE (confirmed) Wiikeys:

    Place to get cheap wiikey

    It is one of wiikeys official resellers, listed on the wiikey site (www.wiikey.cn)
    Good Luck!

    Edit: I forgot to say that you also get a FREE [​IMG] triwing screwdriver for opening the wii which you will need to buy anyway.
    You also get FREE [​IMG] Kynar 30AWG wire for installing the wiikey (although the length that I received was quite short, so you may need more)

    ordered mine from cheapmod, the first one got lost in the post even though it was sent recorded delivery, they sent me another one via special delivery at no extra cost, which has been installed by a friend in my wii.

    the cheapmod forums also offer a user called williewonka who does wii modding for about 50 quid including the chip i think, i don't recall precisely.

    me too.. I ordered and as 'posted' 4 days ago on recorded delivery.. (which is supposed to be next day).

    hmmm I will check with the local post office, but the tracking number is not useful until its delivered..

    I might check and see if its actually a valid tracking number,,,

    I have emailed them, will try and phone later (no doubt a answerphone)

    I ordered mine from cheapmod.net which is good, but not the cheapest. They sell the genuine article, and also give you free kynar wire. The triwing driver is very good quality too.

    I thought games4play are an official reseller of Wiikeys? So why would they be selling clones? Do you have any proof? [​IMG]

    Well it finally arrived.. and looks genuine. (any one have the link to what clones look like so I can check)

    There was no response to any communication attempts from me.. So will not be using them again.. and i suggest you stay clear. After i sent my last email saying I would contact nochex, and it better not be a clone that was sent, it arrived the next day.. And looking at the envelope it was sent yesterday !!

    //edit.. im thinking this looks fake now.. no gold connectors and no PTH pads.. hmm

    stay clear of games4play
