    Do you guys think this is a real Acekard 2i? It's such a good price and I really want to buy it, but this guy I know said never to buy from Deals Extreme because it's all fake. I don't mind the slow shipping since I have an R4 with YSmenu, I was just buying so my sister could have my old R4. I can't afford a lot (I bought some Apple Pucker...leave me alone!), so this seemed like an excellent deal. Thanks for your help!

    DealExtreme has been known to ship some fake flashcarts. I've never heard of them shipping fake acekards though. I got mine from them before and it is fine.

    I just got an A2i from Deal extreme today. Works with AKAIO so I'm assuming it's real. Had to update the firmware for 1.4 though.

    I got my ak2.1 from there, works fine with AKAIO. So I'm guessing their ak2i's will work fine, too.

    Yup, 1000% real. AKAIO 1.5 doesn't work with any fake Acekards. It's in the changelog. (Now, offically unsupports fake cards)

    I've ordered 4 flashcards, and 2 of them being Acekards, have never failed me. [​IMG]

    Edit: Can the Acekard 2i connect to the Wii?

    The Acekard 2i can connect with the wii with Akaio 1.5, and if they do send you a fake just send it back for a new one

    I bought one and 4 other friends have bought one from DX and they have all been legit working Acekard 2is.

    BTW why would you want Wii connectivity? Do any Wii games have this? First I have heard of it.

    I bought my AK2i from DealXtreme nearly a year ago and it's been fine. I am using Akaio 1.5. An impressive improvement over my old R4, btw.

    The original Acekard 2 caused a lot of problems and most people got them from Dealextreme,

    But after 2.1 it has been good.
