www.kanection.co.uk is a reputable retailer.
There are loads of them.
I heartedly recommend the Xecuter 2.6CE
Speaking of cheapmods, isnt there someway you can flash the onboard bios (TSOP) - solder two points together (write-protection disable) on the board and flash it? That'd be the cheapest of mods surely (though you couldnt turn it off).
i use hdd loader to play games from hdd
I don't like the Xapter, anything that aint soldered down will fall off eventually.
And the soldering aint that hard when you know what you're at.
Has anyone ever tried this. Good/Bad idea?
