    I've had no problems with D2Pro9 v2/3. What bugs are you talking about? The only bug I have heard of is the inching bug but that has been fixed since v2 was released I believe.

    No problems here with Wiikey2 on a Wiiclip on my D2E. The truth is that most people with either chip don't have any problems; the kinks have mostly been worked out of the firmware for either chip by now.

    To add to that: I think the people that for the people that do have problems then it is possibly the clip and not the chip at all. At least this was the case for me and for many others online. The clips seem to have very fragile pins.

    D2Pro and Wiikey2 are from the same team, both have eject issues on some drives, both work the same and have the same functions. wiikey2 is cheaper, so I would go for that. [​IMG]

    Have you any proof of this? I have never seen anything to suggest any sort of link between the manufacturing of the separate chips. The original Wiikey had problems that were never resolved yet even the older D2Pro line of chips doesn't have the problem. I find it doubtful that if the same people were making the Wiikey and the previous D2Pro chips that the Wiikey's problems wouldn't have been resolved. Thus I find it even more doubtful that the D2Pro and Wiikey2 chips are made by the same manufacturer.

    It's a fact. Everbody knows that it's the same team. I won't go and search forums just to prove it now.
    Just search around wiinewz.com (a lot of professional modders there, that communicate with the teams directly), or just make a new thread there and ask. 10 people will tell you the same as I just did.
    Also you can clearly make out the link between D2Pro and D2Lite, doing a whois and the link between D2Lite and Wiikey2, since it's the same chip with a slightly different firmware.

    The wiikey team produces the following chips:
    - Wiikey
    - Wiikey2
    - D2Ckey
    - D2Pro
    - D2Lite
    - Drivekey
    - XenoWii

    I'd recommend a WiiKey2. DVD upgradeable, low-priced, and simple install. I use it on all of my installs.
