    I usually buy my flash cards from "Real hot stuff" ... but then I noticed that Deal Extreme was sell there Acekard 2i for half the price. So I know that the shipping takes like forever since iv'e bought from them before...but Iv'e never bought a flash cart for them and I was just wondering if anyone else has bought a Acekard 2i from them so they can tell me if it's real or fake [​IMG] Thank You

    Buy it from Realhotstuff.com instead. Because if you buy it from Dx it will come like in 2 weeks and sometimes its broken. And if it is broken you have to contact them but they will never contact you back. If they do it will be in 2 weeks or so then you have to send it back to them and it will take a long time.

    Gee, I think i'll go with DX...mostly because of it's free shipping and price, since with the money I would spend on RHS ($24) I could buy two on DX ($12 each) and I don't think both would come in broken XD ... but if anything i'll have to think about it since I have alot of trust with RHS and they have never let me down.

    I have bought over 50 of these cards off DX, and the Hyper r4i. not 1 came defective and the last batch I ordered came preupdated to work in 1.4 DSi. Shipping varies I have had cards arive 4 days after purchase and others take 3 Weeks. Nver had anything take more than 23 days (It was my dingoo A 320 boy was I waiting long on it) but pricewise its hard to beat DX and yes they are originals. [​IMG]

    I received my Acekard 2.i about 2 weeks ago from Dealextreme and that card was a clone (fake). AKAIO does not work on this card, only the original acekard firmware works. AKAIO does not work on fake cards.

    I ordered an Acekard 2i from DealExteme back on 9/30/09 and it still hasn't shipped. And judging from the comments on their site, I'm not the only one. Apparently they ran out of stock, but failed to change the listing saying so. The SanDisk 8GB MicroSD card I ordered with it came the other day. Since I have no idea when I'll finally get my Acekard, I went ahead and ordered one from Real Hot Stuff. We have two, soon to be 3 DS's in our household already, so I figured even if DX does send the card today, I won't have wasted money buying a second one.

    I ordered mine from Dealextreme and it's real (at least it works with AKAIO 1.5). It took three weeks to arrive.

    Ha, you don't need to give moderators permission to delete an inappropriate post.

    I had good luck with a company called Gameplayfun.com. They had a special on the Acekard card which was the cheapest I could fine. They gave me free shipping too! They have lots of the other cards commonly looked for too. What I actually like best about this company is that they are located in the USA. I am in New Mexico so I like this about them. Anyway I hope this helps anyone out there in search of a reliable company.

    I got my AK2i from DX a couple months ago. It arrived in about 10 days and was a perfectly working legit AK2i. Your mileage may vary though, I hear they have had some problems with delayed orders lately.
