Brakken over at ISO-420 has written a very lengthy but worth reading review of the WODE which can be found here. ISO-420
Just to quote Brakken because I 110% agree with him on this.
Straight to the point and hits the nail on the head and if you feel like trolling his opinion think of how stupid you'll look.This is a big question. Does the WODE live up to it's hype. Well, simply put - it does. I tested dual layer games, the only BCA game, games that don't work under USB Loaders and plenty of GameCube games. They all worked. If you don't believe or are a hardcore softmod user then fuck off. They all worked without patching, without installing new software that might damage your Wii. They just worked. End of story.

No actually he lost all the site data in a crash and it became corrupt and unrecoverable.
softmodders cursed him apparently
Thats a shame, I was curious to read more about WODE, seems exciting!
Well quite frankly IT'S AWESOME!!!!
Seriously I am totally blown away by the WODE. I just put the thing in using the video guide and plugged my USB HDD in and there they all were my ISO's waiting for my family and I to play. So far I have not had one problem with a game loading. True I am not a big fan of Mario so I have given the one BCA game a miss. But all the others I have tried just worked. Guitar Hero, Avatar the works.
Worth it for me to have a WODE. Two little kids in the house still can do incredible damage to a DVD. This way is better. Back up the ISO onto my HDD on the PC and then copy and paste onto the USB drive for the WODE. And now with the GC onscreen menu for the WODE working I don't even have to stand up to change the games for the girls anymore.
Worth all the aggravation of the purchase process we went through.
I just got a Wii and the WODE may be the only chipmod option available for me right now. I like the concept of the WODE but I wish the implementation was more discreet and easier to use. I don't like broadcasting to visitors that I have a hacked Wii.
Well I have gone the wireless game-cube controller route so the WODE and Wii are both in the drinks cabinet and out of the way. I do have small kids and that is the only way to go with them around.
Can you select Wii games with the wireless game-cube controller? If so, does it still require scrolling and viewing on the WODE screen?
