    I own both. I'd go with the Acekard2, it has a much better GUI.

    People seem to like both, I just purchased an AK2 on a bunch of peoples recommendations.

    It seems to be becoming one of the big cards.

    And as i said in your other post screw DX

    Leetmod gives us canadians good prices free shipping on most cards and no tax.

    Woot Woot.

    DX's prices win leetmod hands down, tax or not, and they do free-shipping worldwide, I don't understand why people like degrading their names.
    I have DSTT for a week now and it hasn't crashed once, my AK2 has just arrived today, I am gonna do some testing now. [​IMG]

    zephyrr: Check your nearly identical thread in the DSTT section for my reply to your question concerning stability.

    Acekard 2, DSTT is just a cash cow with no real team behind it.

    Alright, I have been playing with my new AK2 for awhile now and I must say I like the AK2 much better, I am also amazed by how skinable to kernal is.

    I loaded in the Bliss menu and it works great with my 3-in-1, totally loving it, it also totally fixed the troublesome cheat engine which is the only "con" stated in Urza's review, giving it a perfect score.

    AK2= my fav GUI w/ calendar features which is really helpful since no other cart displays date/time
    DSTT= extremely cheap and i think the quality has went up since there's less complaints lol and it has a pretty simple touch GUI but lacks order

    what i dont get about the DSTT and Neoflash is, why are they still spawning off multiple carts that all do the same thing?

    you would think most flashcart makers would make 1 cart per generation and put their backing behind it.

    Because there's enough of a market that they'll still sell.

    In addition, I'm sure most of the people that purchase flashcarts have no idea about the differences between them.

    If all the efforts were focused on as few products as possible, increases the quality of it

    Team Cyclops made 1 card for the DS the CycloDS evolution, they basically promised everyone it's the last flashcard you will ever need until Nintendos next handheld device basically, because their that devoted to their customers and improving their firmware..

    they did that rather than make many different carts, so yeah quality over quality here.
    the Edge makes a nice Cyclo budget alternative, however i don't recommend it to anyone, because it's still design and software theft.
    if the Edge team however was making the Edge as an agreed budget alt for the Cyclo DS with Cyclops and Edge paid royalties to Cyclo it would be fine by me.

    just business ethics is all.

    Or yes, business ethics in an industry concerned with helping people pirate other company's products.

    Makes sense.

    What people choose to do with their products even though they have to agree not to use them illegally when buying them,

    is irrelevant

    First of all, I was talking about the manufacturer's, not the users.

    Second, its completely relevant. You're expecting people who pirate hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars of IP from an industry that is based solely on selling IP to care that their modchip is using stolen IP (not even, since theres not copyright).

    It simply isn't logical. Hypocritical at best.

    If a Manufacturer says they did not make flashcards to be abused for piracy means that its the users choice of fault not the makers,
    theres no restrictions on Flashcards because that what makes them a free to use device.
    otherwise why not start pointing the finger at PC producers? theres nothing on a PC to stop people pirating movies games and fapping to furry pr0n is there?

    i do not support edge because it is causing Cyclops to lose their money and advantage in that, edge has already taken everything that made the cyclo good and put it in their ripoff card and are selling it, out of factory price for the Edge is higher than the Cyclo, and by buying the Edge and if the Edge causes the Cyclo to be dropped by retailers, then team Cyclops, no doubt the best team so far with Supercard at a close second, will probably drop DS flashcards because of it, and we will all lose a quality product, in exchange for a cheap fake which no doubt will end up having no support since i wouldn't be surprised if the Edge is only improved when the Cyclo Improves.
    make sense?

    That argument holds no base.

    The difference is the intended and tangible legal use. PCs (obviously) have intended legal uses, and that makes up a majority of their market. Flashcarts on the other hand essentially fall into the same use group as modchips, which is the unarguable goal to allow the end-user to pirate software. Your "oh well we told them not to use it illegally" argument is ridiculous and means nothing in the eyes of the law, or even in principle. "No officer, I bought the crack with the intention of covering up the unseemly blemishes on my face."

    You obviously have no idea how the market, laws, or even logic work.


    PS: Jacking off to furry porn is completely legal (as long as the furries are of age).

    In my opinion, Edge, at this moment is not much different than another budget flashcart, the CycloDS still has its shining features that the Edge is lacking, and people who want those will still get CycloDS, I don't think the team is losing anything.

    yes but still, if the purpose is to play backups not steal games, then it seems to be serving well.

    howcome retailers sell these things, yet it never becomes a legal issue until retards in mass ammounts start blabbing "oh i got me dis R4 i can play gamez 4 free an i gawt it from gametraders"
    then Action is taken against R4 simply because they make the product not because of its intentional use.

    PS: Yes i know but for some reason allot of people wage wars against fur-dom and actually enjoy fantasizing about being nazi's gassing furries in concentration camps
    scubasteve is one of them

    PPS what the hell is your avatar its the most hideous thing i've seen in a while, is it supposed to be a leppar or what? it bears a strange resemblance to Toot braunstein
