163w ago - Here is my PS3Break v1.1 PS JailBreak clone PS3 modchip review, which I got from www.PS3Break.com (linked above).
The package was sent with DHL Express mail. Which means it can be all over the world in just 3-5 business days. The box was sealed with a lot of tape and the content comments were a little funny:
• 1x USB card reader PHAT usb
The package came through the customs without being opened or withdrawn. Payment is via CC and Paypal. If I have to believe were it is shipping from it comes from Hong Kong.
So I would say shipping is a big 9/10.
The box around the PS3Break looks very similar to the PSJailbreak box. The sticker says PS3Break V1.1 (was the newest version, there is a version 1.2 coming soon!). There is also a "truth inquiry" sticker. There is a code on it and when I check it on the website it should say LEGIT.
When you open the box you'll find the PS3Break + a strap. It comes without any guaranty/manual enclosed. The manual can be found on the website.
It gets a 7/10. Minor here is the lack of a manual.
PS3Break unit itself:
The unit looks very strong and has an aluminum case. When you hold it the first thing you'll notice is the "upgrade" key. This is needed to flash the stick with a new HEX or Firmware. When I insert the PS3Break it fits like a glove. No problems there.
I tested this on a phat. When I power the PS3 up and immediately hit the eject button there is a small disco show inside the unit. Then it lights up green and your good to go. Although you need to power down the PS3 totally or else it will not work!
8/10 Down side is that it's very slippy...
PS3Break working itself:
When I started the unit it worked like a charm. I installed the AVCHD and Game Manager (by Dean). This also works like a charm. Backuping Start the Party took about 10 minutes. Running the game also gives no problems.
8/10 Again. The lack of a manual is still a - here.
Very nice and satisfying product. Only down side is they already made an "thirth GEN" device. So I have got the idea I am having an old stick soon here.
The review math:
9 + 7 + 8 + 8 = 32
32 / 40 * 100% = 80 total score.

I just got my self a bunch of the PS3 BREAK 1.2 and here is the break down on it.
the unit is a PIC18F with a upgrade button in a blue shell usb pen drive looking case.
Pro's - the shell on the usb device is nice and has a nice grip, u can tell that you are getting a real deal device from a company because of the truth label on the front of it
con - the code is a PIC18F , The upgrade of the unit can be a bit hassling I say this because I tested it a few times with a few of the devices and it was the same deal over and over. the first time I pluged in the unit to the pc it flashed no problem and did the verify with out a problem but when I did it again with all the devices I have it would sit on the verify and never move so i would have to unplug the unit from pc and redo the flashing and verify again and hope it worked that time most of the time it did.
score = 6 out of 10
Worth buying = NO
Overall i would get a better unit for half the price. like a PS3USBJAILBREAK for $8.99 off sites out there alot better then this crappy device
