I'd say the first generation modles. The ones with the A/V jacks in the back. I hear they can play imprts and copies without a modchip? I could be wrong too.

But the A/V jacks in the back is just simply a good idea. :D

well, i prefer the models with the av jacks in the back as well. Also, it MUST have the port in the back where the older plug gamesharks plug-in. hehe. Thats just my personal preference. currently i have a 1001 model and i love it. Im going to be getting a 7501 model so i can install my mod-chip in "stealth" mode :-) :-)

I've got an SCPH-102 model PSone and it plays any PSX disc you care to throw at it thanks to a small piece of paper and "CDX9000" demo disc.

Anything plays well with a PS-X-Change v2, but older PSXs have problems with CD-Rs. The original JAP model played copies and imports straight outta the box, but few exist. If you want to pick one up cheap, go for a 5000/7501 model with a Parraler Port and get a Game Hunter.

Bingo give the man a cookie. Please people stop asking me for all these mad crazy super rare warez cause I don't have them. Instant message me if you wanna talk about gaming or other interesting things but no freaking warez. Just cause I have them doesn't mean I wanna trade with you or, tell you how to burn them or,even talk to you.

the older ones (pre 9000) can have one of those external mod chips plugged in, but those chips suck as all they do is stop the boot disk to make it easy as heck to swap (so get a solder, be a man, and put in a real mod chip).

My friend has a ps1 model that has one of those but it wouldn't play his imports or ...homebrew/emulation. There is a couple of the models even with that port that won't work with the Game Enhancers. The main difference I seen between his model and mine was the way the RCA jacks went into it. Mine has the same connector that a PS2 has, his had the yellow, white, and red hole just like a TV has. I don't remember the model number but Id say away from that one.

Mine is a 5501 and it works great useing the game enhancer.

It really is unbelieveable how true your name can be.

Than again perhaps you weren't born like this, maybe there was some sort of an accident.
