    [Pros/Cons]: Cobra and 3K3Y.


    Our friends over EOL (El otro lado) made two different reviews. So i took my time and translated the PROS/CONS of both devices. Hence those two thread over EOL have more info about how to install each device and some complete tutorials. I just translated the basics. My kudos to c0d3m4st4 and toni___18 for making this tutorials/reviews about this two devices. Since here i grow tired of asking the same all over again.
    So here you have them, if you need more info head to EOL and if you need some more translations, let me know and ask over EOL too.
    Cobra:

    COBRA ODE shocked me.

    Quality components and finish both awesome.
    Installing over models which don't need soldering is too damn easy.
    Software side very simple, just a few clicks and you done it.
    Firmware come in series, so it's easy to install, copy files and isos to play.
    Valid for all PS3 models. AIO.
    QSB quick solder for models which need soldering is very well done. Fits perfect over PS3 board plus is tiny and versatile.

    PROS:

    Almost everything.
    Good quality.
    Easy to install and use.
    Works in OFW so no need for CFW.
    Unique option for non-costumizables and good alternative for CFW where you can custom.
    Unique Model for ALL PS3 consoles.


    CONS:

    Advanced soldering skills over PS3's that need soldering.
    Hard to restore some components in one console once installed. (PS3 which need soldering).
    Long flex, sometimes is difficult to sort them inside just to close the console.
    Clips system over the grill is not cool.
    You can't run Homebrews that need syscalls of certain CFW's. (We will see how this evolves, because we already have Multiman and Showtime).
    It's expensive. If you need someone to install it for you, well it's a nice inversion.
    PROS COBRA:

    One model for all PS3s.
    PCB Quick solder better design and easy to use.
    Serie Firmware. You don't need to install anything else.
    ISOS mode of creating and executing is faster and simple.

    PROS 3K3Y:

    You don't need to restart your PS3 to load your backups.
    You don't need a disk inside the drive to launch a game. Tested over a FAT with 3dump. Waiting confirmation over SS models.
    ISOMENU (activated) launch backups from OLED screen while if it's deactivated from pics over XMB. Doesn't need isomanager.
    Allows Homebrew. Showtime for example.
    Feature to make a backup 1:1 of our own games using your own drive plus 3k3y RIPPER (more hardware).
    Ripp3r app for PC. Allow us to make a valid copy with IRD files. (Stealth, iso matches original) or without IRD, generated ISO created from JB files over Multiman or Iris manager.
    High Quality PCB and easy to install over FAT consoles 2XX-21XX. Over SuperSlim consoles you need to solder PCB to board. (You need some soldering skills)
    Constant Support and Feedback of the product from 3k3y team side.

    Lol. That looks so weird... The reviewer seemed to love the cobra and lists a lot of pros to cobra then when it does the comparison with 3k3y it's shifted... It just didn't sound right... Too much of a divergence... + the 3k3y pros were weird...

    Oh, i just checked. Looks like that review was on a wiki and someone (not the reviewer) just went and added a ton of pros to 3k3y... Looks biased to me. Anyways. Most pros for 3k3y in that list look wrong. Cobra can switch games without reboot apparently (in latest update apparently), you also need a disc in for 3key to work, cobra allows homebrew as well and afaik showtime and multiman were ported to cobra first (could be wrong), it supports the 3k3y generated isos as well so ird support is just based on pc app.
    To me, it looks like the pros for 3k3y are just biased crap.. If i was to write some, I'd say that The 3k3y team is awesome (i had some chats with them and loved the openness and discussion) and most of all, their ripper app is open source!!
    I don't know about any additional pros to cobra though.

    Was it just me who noticed the comparison was weird?

    Note: i don't have (or want) either the 3k3y or the cobra ode. I had the 3k3y at some point but never tried the ode, just played with the ripper (which works great) then i returned it to my friend.

    It's weird. Translated from source.
    Two different reviews, two different users and similar "results".

    Still checking though hence Cobra owners do reviews in German not spanish. (I love silly excuses).

    Will edit it though once i finish translating other things from Spanish to English and fix Pros/cons sections from both.

    True to be told all 3k3y is in the open and it's has an AIO thread over here, using as source their official board for files, installation methods, etc.
    I have to fill the gaps of Cobra hence some Cobra owners are not "open minded enough" to make a proper unbiased review.

    Yeah translation was a bit weird that's why i checked the Spanish version. I'm also waiting for a proper review and comparison out of curiosity but it doesn't seem to be conning.
    It's clear that both reviews were done by different people but the comparison was done (looked like) by blackcat who did the cobra review. But if you look at the wiki history before someone spammed the review with 3k3y pros, the reviewer said he never used 3k3y so didn't know how to compare it and asked for users to fill in the gaps.

    Oh i thought of another pro for cobra : customizable manager. I Love the idea and it means Eleganz might finally be useful. That's why I'm interested in cobra actually since i promised my twitter followers I'd port it to cobra if they ever released. Looks like they did but i didn't get the free time to port eleganz yet.

    Was checking the wiki too.
    I have to re-do all this again...

    So over pro for Cobra with Eleganz is good to go?. Want me to add it?.
    Or just add Eleganz (Elegancia) coming soon? or not add it at all for the time being.

    How many of your followers over twitter actually done a review of Cobra?. Just asking cause i can use another language source (i don't know German though).

    Thanks for the info and as i said i will re-do this and check further over the wiki and if someone finally decides to make a Cobra review over here. I will gladly post it (as you see, i said this almost 40 times and no response).

    Happens.

    Es un poco cansador cuando no quieren cooperar porque no quieren y listo y no dan una razon especifica. Los entiendo por una parte pero por la otra seria mejor para el producto que tenga una review bien lograda. (Castellano).

    Saludos.

    Nah. No need to say eleganz. But the pro is that you can use their (ugly) manager or multiman which has already been ported, or eventually when i port it eleganz as well... So it allows custom managers, as opposed to 3k3y which doesn't do that (it offers remote if you buy it or web controller if you buy wifi dongle otherwise by browsing a picture cd...).
    I never asked on twitter if anyone had it. I just said (before they released) that if it's not vaporware and if they do released an open source library to communicate with the ode then I'll port eleganz... Which they did. I could ask if you want and if someone has it, i can ask for a review if they accept.
    I did see you request reviews but are there hax users who even have the cobra? I think there's a lot of hate towards them in this forum, so maybe noone did a review because noone bought (or received yet) their cobra ode.
    Let me know and I'll ask on twitter.

    Ps:i barely understand spanish... :-P and now I'm on my phone so don't feel like using google translate and fight with copy/paste... But i think i understood what you meant :-P

    Both sh*tty devices are full of cons.

    The only pro that they have going for them, is that they work on 3K/4K machines, other than that, they are pocket money for greedy people.

    Indeed, this forum has turned into a 3K3Y whoring forum.
    The hate for Cobra stems from the hate of garyOPA and his scamming, conning, dishonest way's.

    If i was to lower myself and my dignity, i would pick a 3K3Y any day over a Cobra, for the simple fact, that anything connected to garyOPA is a scam and dirty.
