    my classmate met a car accident earlier, so he has to be stay at hospital for a while, so i want to buy him a flashcard for his nds console to kill time there.

    after several findings, i found a site selling at 13.99 USD for this card free shipping, so any better price?

    I would suggest spending the extra dollar and getting one from Shoptemp.com. I have purchased around 12 cards from there and its fast postage and excellent quailty.

    FYI, that's probably down to the production line, and not whoever you buy the Acekard from, and even then like Rydian says you won't even see it when you use it!

    fancysky016, that's a pretty damn good price, what site is it?
    If not that site, the only other site we'd recommend is Shoptemp, their Acekard is just $14.95. There could be a price difference depending on the microSD you buy together with it.
    The free shipping is also dependable, usually free shipping arrives around the 2-week mark. But if you need it earlier, you can pay more for express shipping, UPS, EMS or DHL.

    Are any of their microSDHC good? or is it better to buy a 4gb or 8gb from Newegg?

    Their microSD cards should be absolutely fine, they're just basic Kingston or Sandisk cards, and will be class 2 or 4.
    If you really want to make sure you want the best performing microSD, you should buy one from Newegg.

    I guess GBAtemp has something against "I'm a poopy head", for whatever reason.
    I wonder if the same is true of "Wikinds" after that prize fiasco.

    Edit: Yup, they must really not like that website.

    They are banned because they were behind the PM spamming on here, and rightly so.

    See http://gbatemp.net/t240575-reporting-spam-in-pms

    Although the website they were promoting was another site, the idiots hosted the image on the NCS website. Both websites had a indentical layout, after NCS got banned they moved the image to another one of their websites. Again, when you visted the site it had the same layout as NCS.



    fancysky016: if he has a DS Lite or DS original, just get him a R4 as in the guide in my signature. They are as cheap as chips, $6 at the most.

    ^Yeah, people posting Lockers invite threads got annoying, so it was filtered. The other site was removed for.....Not supplying their end part for the Tempmas contest?

    No, it before that I'm a poopy head was also used for another website. I pushed them to ban NCS in that thread, I was pissed at getting Spam and pissed because I thought they were an ok site.

    PV, have you seen what NCS is upto?

    They are a bad bad company, and have lots of other 'scam sites'. I've brought from them and thought they were ok, but I won't buy from them again.

    Some of their other sites:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    If you view the sites in bold, you will see they are identical to NCS.

    They often spam blogs/ forums, just google. They weren't using newly created accounts, they hacked inactive accounts and used them. They spammed my PM box on here, and the image in the PM refering to this R4 site was hosted on the NCS site. Add /mailsns/dstt.jpg to the homepage address of
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    and it will be clear it's them. That was the image they were spamming everyone with.

    So they aren't using it in anyway to get rid of competing sites.

    Well, you are alone in thinking that. They are banned, and can't be linked to on here.

    Photobucket is completely different, the image was hosted on their own site and has a website mentioned in the image. Why would they put a image on their own site recommending another store r4idscards? only reason is that r4idscards is their own site. When NCS got banned, they moved the image to r4fords and use that in their spam PM's. You may not have got one, but it annoyed those who they were spamming.

    I'm happy to forward you the PM.

    I didn't just pull those website names out of a hat...

    The sites are pretty much all the same, pick a random few to look at.

    Take a look and then tell me NCS don't spam

    http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=%22You+ha...al&filter=0

    http://www.google.co.uk/search?num=100&amp...amp;btnG=Search

    http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=%22Cheap+...=utf-8&aq=t

    http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=%22We+pro...=utf-8&aq=t

    There's so many more, and more often than not they are also with those other sites which are known to sell fake goods suc as in the post above. The sites I listed were just a very small number, they have many many more sites. They are a major force on the internet when it comes to spamming forums/ blogs.

    Another thing they do is set up many fake blogs, for example

    http://conor1988.blog-citi.de/
    http://tansy1981.blogge.rs/
    http://leann1977.blogge.rs/
    http://jazmine003.website.tc/

    http://forum.im-blog.de/index.php?page=Blogs&p=576
    http://winslow1971.4blog.pl/index.php?op=V...articleId=62624

    Many of those also mention fashioniphone.com, which they have displayed on the NCS homepage.

    This is the best one, they are even saying their goods are fake http://forum.im-blog.de/index.php?page=Blo...articleId=27728

    Now take a look at this one use is is full of Ndscardstore links http://sommer1984.blogebay.com/ and older posts in that blog http://sommer1984.blogebay.com/2010/06/17/...cal-equipments/ is full of fashioniphone which is on the homepage of NCS.

    After NCS got banned on here, they moved the url for the image in the PM's to r4fords.co.uk. Surprise surprise, they spam too http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=%22m3+rea...al&filter=0

    The people behind NCS are professional spammers, there is plenty of proof. Are you still going to defend them?

    Read the thread which kicked it all off http://gbatemp.net/t240575-reporting-spam-in-pms?
