    Wiikey 2, the d2lite is already outdated. The wiikey 2 is made by the same team.

    i'm getting a solderless D2Sun v3.05 and for the record solderless means it is pre-soldered to a wiiclip.
    as far as i know D2Sun and wiikey to are compatible with all drive revisions of wii out currently.
    the only differences i see in these 2 chips is you set the region and drive type on the D2Sun before you clip it to the drive chip wiikey2 is auto detect also D2Sun solderless is a bit cheaper and doesn't have dvd upgrade features yet..

    like wiisel said it could be one of the new drives that have no drive chip to put the mod chip on it would be best to have the wii first so you can make sure it has a drive chip.
    just saying you don't want to waist your money on something that might not work.

    Wiikey haves Auto boot support (So you can auto boot wad manager or such things with a brick to unbrick your wii)

    And block update support


    Argon have Nand dump and restore also... that makes your wii kinda unbrick able...

    it depends on what you wanna do with your chip. If you are into NAND etc, then get yourself an Infectus or an aragon.

    If you only want an up to date chip, get yourself the WiiWasp or the Wiikey2 both are the same, but WASP is better Quality and cheaper.

    Solderless means, you get the chip soldered on a clip, so you only have to check if your Driveboard can handle the clips.
    Clips only work for older boards like DMS D2A or D2B with no cutted legs.

    You'll be good with a wiikey2 on a clip if you don't have solder skills and have proper drive.
