Today Team PS3News has reviewed the new SlideCard Pro ($11.95 US) and SwapTool Pro ($7.95 US), both available from www.SwapSet.com as mentioned in our Past News. To begin, our Tech cableguy0976 did the SwapTool Pro review using his PSTwo slimline v12 console. To quote: Next up was the SlideCard Pro (pictured below) which was done on my own PS2 v7 console. Installation was straightforward, consisting of removing the OEM drive tray bezel and replacing it with the custom-designed one supplied with the SlideCard Pro. Following that, I inserted the SlideCard Pro into the slot as shown below, and did the following: to UNLOCK the drive (for opening) slide the tool to the RIGHT and you'll notice the drive spindle will lower. Once you swap discs, simply slide the tool to the LEFT to LOCK the drive back into position... doing so will raise the drive spindle back up to read the disc when you press X on your controller. Nice and simple, and works GREAT for those seeking a no-solder (and low cost) quality solution for PS2 consoles world-wide!
