    I just received an Acekard 2 v2.1 a few days ago FROM Acekard... it had the old style clamshell retail package. and green pcb inside with the Actel chip sticking through the case.

    Then i saw this:

    Google translation to Engrish: http://74.125.93.104/translate_c?hl=en&amp...G8KWoLMuCnGy61Q

    Posted 2008-9-25 (pics in folder 2008/09/23)... the pcb appears black, the actel chip that normally protrudes through the case is missing, and it is in a box instead of clamshell.
    The SST chip is identical, but it is missing some caps on the usb side.

    so it appears you got the fixed ak2 renumbered as 2.1. those images and info seem to point to a new designed 2.1 called the 2.1+. i can't pull up any good info on it yet, and this is only the second post i've read, and still no one has one.

    lets hope its not another clone...... i can't wait for all the "do i have an ak clone" posts!

    however, what if these images are mockup fakes? it does look a bit like a photoshopped copy of the rpg case.

    I have the same looking one. Just mine came in the clear plastic case. I was wondering what was up after not seeing two websites on the bottom.

    You got a black pcb version? or a green 2.1 that came in the plastic clamshell? (mine was ak2 v2.1 in plastic)

    Looks a lot bigger then an RPG case (judging from the size of the shelf hanger hole at top)

    It uses the same type graphics as the RPG, but past that looks nothing similar, the RPG is a sleeve over the plastic case, that looks like an R4 style box with the internal box being inside.

    Acekard RPG box:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Acekard2 plastic clamshell package:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    I hope it's real, i like the black PCB and no chip sticking out.


    Code:
    heh... [spoiler] cannot be [SPOILER].. seems to break the tag :P

    it looks like a 3-in-1 case with the rpg logo and graphics photoshopped on it, with some additional crap to make it look legit.

    VERY cheap, i'd imagine that site would only sent to asia though. Otherwise it's much cheaper than deal extreme

    Just wondering how you got this directly from Acekard. Do they ship replacement directly to you if there is a problem with your previous card? How good is their customer service?

    Their customer service is AWESOME, i received several of the bad Acekard2s from serveral vendors in just trying to get a couple that were ok... I finally wrote Acekard telling them of my problem... they shipped me a sample and it arrived a few days after... My last replacement from a vendor has JUST now shipped out yesterday (waited like 2 weeks for him to get his new shipment in).

    Out of all the flashcard people i contacted, they were the best and fastest with replies. Here is the email they sent me....
