    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

    Brought 2 over the summer and iTouch2 from DX. Working Great. It is said that the new AKAIO 1.5 firmware does not work with AKAIO clones, and it seems like it's working fine with the one i got at DX. So no fakes from me. The wait is long, but the price and free shipping is worth it.

    If you pay for shipping I would say maybe 5 business days, takes forever on free shipping.

    I liked the price, but my worst problem was the shipping... 2 weeks and a half? I went and checked my mailbox EVERY SINGLE DAY. But it's real.

    If is really in stock, you wait 5 days and after they ship and you wait 8 days (for me)

    I ordered one from Deal Extreme on September 22nd and it arrived today. That's one day over two weeks. Granted, it took them until the 28th to send me shipping notice, so once they actually shipped the card, it only took less than a week and a half to arrive.

    Now, I like RealHotStuff because they're in the states and I've had good experiences with them. However, I didn't feel like paying 20 bucks for an Acekard, seeing as I already have a DSTT that I got from them to tide me over. 10.44 plus free shipping for an AceKard 2 for my DSLite was about what I felt like parting with for the thing.

    If you can wait the extra lil' bit and want to save yourself some scratch, go with Deal Extreme. If you just have to have it now and don't care spending nearly twice as much or more to get it a bit faster, then go with RHS. Both dealers are reputable.

    mine took 3 weeks to get here, was bricked on arrival (DOA), and the sticker looked mysteriously scratched/worn, as if the card had been used before. It also did NOT come with a card reader, and no card readers are shown on the site for the ak2i, anyway, only for the regular acekard 2.1.

    AK2i's off DealExtreme don't come with MicroSDs. Anyway you made the right choice for the Acekard. The first version was shit but now its like one of the best!

    Shipping from DealExtreme varies, for me at least. Last time I ordered it arrived in a week!

    When i bought mine it took about a week and a half but I'd consider that fast since it came from the other side of the world. [​IMG]
