Hey all. Ive been looking for neat mod chips for some time and today my friend told me that he bought 2-3 mod chips called "Duo X2" and im just wondering if these are as good as he says.

He claims that these should be very new and one of the best chips at the market.
True?

Im also wondering if its worth the price, he takes around 85$ to put it in my xbox, but then he will do all the hardware and software stuff aswell (u know, programs, bios modding etc)

Okey. Good chips... Well, i think he wants that much money because he's very cheap... u know.. greedy.

Anyways if you would pay to get one of these chips into your console, whats a fair price?

Hehe okey... Before installing these chips, is there any thing i need to think about. I mean, my xbox is 1 and a half year old, can i be sure that the Duo X2 will work on my bios?

And is it anything else i need to think of?

Anyone has a link to the Duo X2 so i can read about it?

Official site for DuoX 2:

Yes, DuoX 2 is quite cheap, almost as cheap as Aladdin XT 4064. About US$11 or less in bulk (see www.robotpig.com or www.divineo.cn).

Yes, US$85 is a rip off IMHO.

Ok.

I talked to him and he's able to negociate about the price (wich makes me happy) but he also said that he can get many other chips if i want something else (but that will ofcourse increase the mod price, since ill pay for the chip aswell)

So, what im now wondering is the DuoX2 really good (within it price range) or should i buy for example a Xenium Ice or something like that instead?

thats right. as i said, unles you want really advanced function, then just stay with teh duo. its a good chip.
but any way its the bios that is loaded on the chip that matters.
so try nd get the price right down (he's ripping you off at that price), and go with the duo

Hmm... Which BIOS should i use (its modded with a DuoX2 now, costed me 35$ for the chip, MOD included =D)

My mate said he will install Unleashed or something for me... he said its like EvoX but a bit cooler... should i let him install that?

No problems at all. GL
