    Default Model 1 or 2 what would you do?

    Hey Guys
    I picked up a mint gen 2 and sega cd 2.. both mint in box.

    I already have gen 1 and model 1 sega cd....

    I am debating if I should sell the gen 2 stuff or keep it... what would you do?

    the model 1 scd has been working great since I cleaned it and installed new fuse. The new one (model 2) works mint.. I am torn

    Yep keep em both. The day will come when the model 1 Sega CD breaks and then you can resort to using the model 2 Sega CD.

    I'm in the same predicament, sorta. I have a working Model 1 which I don't love, but I've yet to get my Model 1 working. Even when I do, I imagine it may give me issues down the road.

    My problem is that i just picked up an X'eye recently. Now what? ;-) Of course, it doesn't read discs either :-/

    Heck yeah, keep them all until they are FORCED from you. A few more systems don't take up that much more room

    My model 1 has been going for years, guess I should get ready for it to go? I still have one Model 2 in reserve, but it needs the fuse repaired... plugged it in with a SMS base adapter... think that was it anyway. Duh.

    I'd keep them both but that's the collector in me.

    So, what's different between Model 1 and Model 2 aside from the appearance and how they hook up and the seemingly annoying to use disk tray?

    model 1 is the most rare of the 2 models, very sought and expensive, plus model 1s can read burned images, whilst model 2 canīt

    If by burned images you mean CD-R's then models 2, CDX's, & X Eye's all do an equally as good job.

    The only benefit I can think of that the model 2 CD has over the first one is that the model 2 looks good with both Genesis systems. (As long as you have the extension plate for the model 1 Genesis.) The model 1 Sega CD just looks incomplete with a model 2 Genesis on top.

    Of course this isn't about which system is better. Hold onto both systems if you have that option.

    Only advantage is collectiblility, styling, and the BIOS demo.
