    hi,

    considering importing a new sony PSX (console, DVD/HD recorder) for evalution....

    Can anyone on this forum comment on its suitability for the UK? Clearly its a japanese model, but im trying to get a feel for menus (ie is there are english option), and other UK compatability elements..

    Also, has onlyone tried fitting a mod chip to one yet?

    appreciate its early days, but maybe there is a dealer who has had a closer look....

    thx
    Kev

    Edge have a 8 page special on the PSX, be warned that it doesn't go into technical details - but it does mention that the menu system is pretty unusable for a non Japanese reading user.

    www.lik-sang.com has pretty much the same information for free (link should be on the front page).

    Get yourself a dvd recorder with a hard drive mate.

    Much better imo!
