    Both are great cards, but you can't really compare them very well. The CycloDS costs around $50, but it's the top of the line and the best you can get. The Acekard2 costs around $10 on DealExtreme, and is definitely a budget card. It doesn't have all the features the CycloDS has. Both have support for the 3in1, have great DS compatibility and great homebrew support. You can't go wrong with whatever you choose.

    I personally have the AK2 and really love it.The AKAIO firmware is really awesome and constantly updated.It doesn't have RTS and the other features the Cyclo has but for $12 its as good as it gets in budget cards.

    just look at the features and decide for yourself if the extra features of the cyclo are worth the 2-3x the price you pay for it.

    I am a cyclo owner and they are the best cards, very simplistic you don't even need to patch your games.

    The main advantage of the CycloDS is real-time game state dumps. If you feel that this option is worth the extra cost, then consider the CycloDS.

    Otherwise, Acekard menu system is very responsive and attractive. The Acekard AKAIO menu has some features that the CycloDS doesn't have. And of course the Acekard is much cheaper.

    @Berkely - The AK doesn't require patching either.

    Look, here's the thing. If you're worried about save points in games and have lots of money, get a Cyclo. But, if you don't want to spend that much, it's Acekard hands down.

    To your right.
    If your really care about features like real-time save, then get the cyclo DS.

    If you just wanna be able to play games, then get the AK

    All depends on your budget really as stated above.
