modchip or softmod?
I have a modchip ordered, i have a 3.4 wii, i was thinking of doing the softmod tonight, does it work well? i have tried to research it but i have not seen any pros or cons, thanks for any help and advice you can offer

most modchips only allow for back ups fro disk. It is a simple thing to use but doesn't have the freedom and control like in softmodding. Softmodding is free and you can play backups from usb devices.
Thanks for the info! im gonna go for it!
I've done both to my Wii. Personally, I like the ability to play burned games from my disc channel (which you can't do with only a softmod) because not all games I've burned work 100% through the soft mod or, conversely, the hard mod either.

get both, get more games playable
I think I am going to go down the modchip route was contemplating softmod but I think I will leave it until I'm more confident with a bit more research to start tinkering properly.
