I notice alot of shops sell the messiah chips for a higher price then the magic chips as well as the premodded systems. What does the messiah 2 do better then magic? play more games?

well the messiah 2 is better but for the price difference i would settle for the magic 3.1. there isnt a big difference in the two, i dont really know what the difference is but the magic 3.1 is a great chip also

They say the Messiah 2 has a little higher boot rate percentage, aka less failed boots. The Messiah ppl say 100% boot rate but I highly doubt it. I would say the Magic 3.1 is about 95% boot rate. Not enough to warrant double the price for a Messiah 2.

the messiah2 can boot a burned game from the browser screen and the magic3.x has to be started with the game inside the drive.

Bullshit, I start my games from the browser screen with Magic 3.1.
It doesn't work all the time, but it works most of the time.

True, it only worked on v4 and v7 for me, but didn't work on v1.
I didn't try any other versions.

which is why the messiah claims better booting percentages. it boots everything.

I have a v7 modded with a Magic 3.1 RED PCB. It works wonders. I love that chip. Boots all my cdrs so far and im working on getting some DVDRS. I like my Magic 3.1. Chip only costs $28(shipped) and its direct boot so I dont mind saving some money and getting a chip that has a boot rate of 95% thats still wonderful.
