    I keep seeing people post that the Acekard 2i is only 12 bucks, but everywhere I look (in acekards authorized resellers) has it around $24 Where do I get it for $12?

    I'm in the US.

    Thanks.

    You're like a broken record.....maybe cheap, but no where near as cheap [​IMG] And don't bite back with the "quicker shipping time" crap - that's total BS!

    yeah. For Finland, prices in euros are about same as peices in dollars (as in, dsi is gonna cost 200€ here when it is 200$ in us) and I love shoppig stuff from internet; "oh, A Miku figurine 90usd ... Oh wait, it is just 68€ - that is cheap to me, BAM!"

    same for flashcarts online, and good so because only finnish store is badly overpriced.

    Where? DX staff blames DMCA here, only DX forum user frills speculate about PayPal interference, as far as I can see?

    Does this Ak2i DX trick still works? Because I've been thinking of getting a couple of Acekards in my place as backup, I just don't know if DX still has them on stock and if will they ship them. [​IMG]

    Yes it still works, and if it doesn't you can get a refund which normally takes 3 days.

    I've just had two AK2i delivered from DX this morning, both are 0fc2 8181 and updated to 1.4 using the lastest update. Both cards are working fine and were ordered using the work around.

    Order date was 27/01, shipping date was 01/02. Although according to the Hong Kong Post Office tracking information they didn't leave Hong Kong until 09/02, presumably due to a Chinese New Lunar Year backlog.
