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?
Feb 25 2003, 09:06 PM
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.

it all depends on the machine. i have a ver 4 that always boot from the browser but then i had a ver 5 that didnt.

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.
