just something to add, i'm not trying to be a xenium ice fan boy but it's the chip I have so i thought i'd point something out, in the link above it says

Pricy, especially with S.P. adaptor
No QuickBoot feature (must always select Bios from launch menu)
Difficult to use OS

yes it's pricy that's true, but (and maybe this isn't true for the original xenium) with the xenium ice you can have quick boot with a countdown timer, or instant boot, so there's no need to go into the OS, and yes in previous OS versions it was very buggy but now i think xenium has an awesome OS with a lot of usefull features such as hard drive upgradeing, replacements, formating, led tweaking (for external Xenium led which comes with chip)

i'm glad someone made that link but i wish it was more, ummm, accurate and portraited the chips better, it definitly seems to make smartXX look like the best chip, and it may be, but it doesn't mention any of the OS features of xenium or xecuter (which are the most popular chips IMO on the market today)

**edit haha just noticed that whole "pay no attention to the xeniums bad review" portion, sorry to rant then :-P but i still think someone should write more in about each chip. If i were u, go to the websites of each chip and look through the manual to see the features. Look through xenium's OS 2.3 manual
