    Just a simple Question.
    Is it right, that the Wasabi Chip is temporarely the best Chip available?

    Don't know if it's indeed "The Best" but got one installed on D2B/USA and no prob's so far. Haven't tried on the D2C yet.
    Also, unlike Cycolwiz etc., played SSBB no problem "out of the box".

    I would recommend it for sure.

    Right now, the DVD upgrade functionality hasn't still been demonstrated. It doesn't have a JTAG connector, so if their "Work-in-progress" on DVD updates won't give the hoped results, you might be stuck with a non-updateable modchip, as they still have to provide proof that the Wasabi is TRULY upgradeable.

    I would trust D2Pro more. The D2Pro Team is known to be hard-working and they've said that with the next upgrade they would enable DVD upgrades... Just be sure to get the latest version (the one with the SPI on it) installed.

    the wasabi has not been very stable on d2c wiis , the d2pro9 would be my choice over the wasabi . when ever i install a wasabi and i have problems , red light ,etc. i always take it out and install a d2pro9, i only fit wasabi if customers ask for them specifically.
    however WASABI are releasing a new chip shortly http://www.wasabi.net.cn/index.html .the wasabi team reckon its rock solid , more than they could say about there first chip they released, they still haven't fixed the issues they have with it.

    My first burn of SSBB plays perfectly on my Cyclowiz.
    theyre good chips but theyre near impossible to find
