    Xstation late PU8

    Posted by Mats on 7th Nov 2022

    Great stuff, works like a charm! The PU8 QSB has quite a few soldering points and the installation is all in all a bit finicky. But, flux and patience is your friend. Not recommended for beginners.

    Great mod

    Love this mod. Live in California, shipping took only 4 days. Xstation is a great mod and 8bitmods is a great site. I recommend getting a memcardpro to make save/loading easier.

    Great Addon

    This is a great kit, and the soldering board makes the process simple to install. I suggest double checking soldering with a multi-meter. Loading backups and using the board is easy also.

    The best PS1 ODE on the market!

    Posted by Edward Fletcher on 2nd Sep 2022

    The xStation is a breeze to install and operate. If you're a Playstation enthusiast you won't regret upgrading your system with one of these. Forget your modchips, having the PS1 library on an SD card is the way forward!
