Benefits of the DriveKey:
Drivekey iis a plug-and-play solderless solution for ALL current wii drives. It has region overrride features (USA/JAP/PAL/KOR), works with both Wii and GC games.
The DriveKey once installed is just as simple to use as any other chip on the market, it will unlock your machine to be able to play original imported games from around the world.
Homebrew is another important aspect of why you would want to chip your machine, the Wii DVD player software is a great example, this homebrew software will allow you to play DVD movies on your Wii which was not possible in an un-modified state, so far there is a host of homebrew applications that really expand the Wii experience.
You will be also able to play legitimate backups of your original games as well, so no longer can the kids destroy games as you can make a backup copy for them to use and keep the original in a nice safe place.

The Drive Key is the best sollution for latest Wii DVD with no chipset - D3 / D2nothing, or D2E expoxy protected chipsets.
DVD Flast cable is also included in this package:
Note that the WiiKey 2 (or similar chips) is still one of the the best sollutions for all other Wii modells and chipsets. DriveKey is not ment to be a replacement, its mentioned to be used and works best only on the D3 / D2nothing Wii DVDs. There is no other/better sollutions for those DVD.
DriveKey sits on the bus between the Wii motherboard and the DVD drive. It transparently monitors all data transmitted. When a backup disc is inserted DriveKey emulates an original game disc by transmitting and patching necessary data. DriveKey has full control and can read the entire DVD media.

A traditional chip such as the WiiKey 2 does have some advantages over the DriveKey, first being that the WiiKey 2 will support full drive speed, where the DriveKey only supports 2x read, this won’t be a huge problem and will just cause some of the games to load a fraction slower.
NOTE: Not compatibe with new D3-2 Wii.
