wiikey 2 or fusion ?
I just purchased a used Wii to replace my recently deceased wii.
In my old Wii I used an original Wiikey and could play all games just fine, now I need to buy a new chip and am not sure if I should just go for the Wiikey 2 (which can be used) or just opt for the new Wiikey Fusion.
Using SD might be useful but the wiikey 2 is proven and works very good and the new fusion has yet to prove itself.
Also I am worried the support for the wiikey2 might decline now they have the new fusion.
So question is, is the Fusion just as good as the wiikey2 or should I just use the wiikey2?
Any other advice?
Before you get any chip, you should check this chart

I did lot of research and yes I do have some minor errors with fusion but easy to get games on SD cards and play and easy to install no need to solder anything.
The error I get is when in the Mii channel and can be solved with having SD card in the card reader when inside Mii channel. I am on 4.3E and works fine with my Pal games only. Haven't had time to change region on other games to PAL yet to try it out as I just got my new Wii and don't own any other region games yet.
I already know I can use both chips, I just want to know if the wiikey 2 is the better choice or if the Fusion is the better choice.
Fusion is newer and more likely to get faster updates but the wiikey 2 has been a solid player for 2 years now and has 6x read speed and full gamecube support (with working audio).
According to their site Wiikey 2 and if you are unlucky like me and have a D3-2 drive then cannot use backup DVDs and only use original games from my region or SD.
I only have the original Wiikey none of these fancy-schmancy new ones. They any good like?
