Counterfeit GM-816HD possess NO "Region Free <NOTE: 1>" function
Recently we have been frequently reported from our distributors that there were certain amounts of counterfeit GM-816HD have always troubled them. After having a test on the fake, we found that aside from the inferior manufacturing quality the fake is, possess NO Region Free function <NOTE: 1> as it shall have in the genuine one.
In order to prevent consumers from buying those inferior counterfeits, we provide a brief comparison chart for the potential users to identify the fake from the genuine GM-816HD per attached – comparison chart here.
<NOTE: 1>: Region Free
The publication of worldwide DVD movies are divided into region 1, region 2, region 3 etc., totally 9 Regions respectively for the regions of Japan, Northern America, southern America etc.; the PS2 console bought from region-1, for example, can only play the movies designated for region-1, playing DVD regions other than region-1 is forbidden in region-1 PS2 consoles.
"Region Free" is a specific function that allows the console, after modification, being able to play all the regions of DVD movies in despite of whatever the region restriction of the PS2 console is.
Recently we are frequently reported that there were inferior counterfeit of GM-816HD appeared on the market. It looks almost identically the same with the genuine one from the outer appearance. We added a “G” mark on the PCB board in order to make user easier to distinguish the genuine from those of the counterfeits, as shown in the picture below
Note: There might still be some remnant genuine GM-816HD which has no "G" mark printed on the PCB board remaining on the market. In such a case please refer to the 2010.05.27 News stated below. As well, you can differentiate the circuitry layout in between genuine and the fakes for your comparison purpose.

games & Action Replay’s disc swapping
We’d like to reconfirm that Mars Pro
modchip GM-805SL supports disc swapping function
which is vital for more characters interactive in-between
in multi-disc gaming such as Dynasty Warriors 4,
as well as cheat-code devices prevailing on the
market, Action Replay Max for instant.
CHANGE REGARDING PROTECTION BOARD
This is to notice you
that the protection circuit board PTR-2, which was
used to be enclosed in Mars Pro GM-805SL as an attachment,
has now been changed to a smaller designed PTR-5
in order to fit into both the newly designed PSTwo
V-13 and the existed V-12. Installation of PTR-5
please refer to here.
In the new PSTwo V13, Sony has re-engineered the
servo circuitry for better protection of the laser
module which has significantly reduced the possibility
of the laser burn-out syndrome. Under such circumstance,
protection board being adding on the new PSTwo V13
is not anymore recommended.
For some customers who consider a protection board
being adding on the new PSTwo V-13 better than not,
we recommend PTR-5 as a replacement of PTR-2 in
order to fit into PSTwo V-13.
compatible with the latest PSTwo model version V13
After having a strict
compatibility test, we confirm that GM-850SL modchip
fully support the latest PSTwo model version V13.
A NEWLY DEVELOPED MODCHIP GM-805SL
