    Hey everyone,

    I'm sick and tired of my old wiikey, because it is no longer supported with updates. I'm looking for a nice, new solderless modchip - the Wasabi DX caught my eye, but I want to see what you all have to say about that. I kind of like the idea of a ribbon cable modchip.

    Also, where is the best place to get one? I see a bunch of stores out there: modchipcentral, modjunkiez, 4coolday, etc. Where should I buy from for a quick, hassle-free transaction with good shipping? I'm a little lost, and there really doesn't seem to be too much info out there.

    Thanks in advance!

    Wode?

    It's kinda pricey though @ $100 or abouts.

    i have a wasabi zero, i love it. havent had any trouble at all with it. its out of production now though. wasabi dx is good, and you would also be able to turn it into a zero (to get disc speed of 6x, instead of 3x) if you wanted to as well.

    wasabi modchips are solid, they have great build quality.

    It's not me so much... I have friends and family that use the wii that wouldn't be able to deal with using softmod menus.
    I also don't want to be paranoid about anyone updating the wii and rendering any modification useless, therefore a hardmod would be nicer in my case.

    You can't go wrong with the Wasabi DX.

    The wasabi team has great support as far as updates go.
