    Don't know whether this has been posted anywhere before, excuse me (or lock/delete this thread) if so.

    Because I'm still working with my ancient Supercard Lite I want to buy a new flashcard. I will wait for the hands-on review of the SCDS2 before making any purchase, but I've noticed that the Acekard is a good option too. The only thing that wasn't really clear to me is what the exact differences are between the Acekard 2.1 and the Acekard 2i (with exception of the fact that the 2i is DSi compatible). So, can anyone of you tell me these differences, or tell me what would be the best choice? I have a DS Lite, not a DSi. Thanks in advance.

    no noticeable difference they run the same firmware so the only difference is dsi compatibility

    so if you think you will get a dsi at some point get a ak2i

    plus there not much difference in price

    I would recommend the AK2i.
    Obviously it's compatible with the DSi, but it's also a safer purchase.
    There's that bad batch of AK2.1 getting around lately, I'm not sure how likely that still is though.

    I've heard 2i's are more reliable than 2.1's, but I can't say for myself.

    Those are the reasons I bought an AK2i over a 2.1... when I was looking the difference in price between then was $1, and there's not a lot you can buy for $1 nowadays.

    You might as well get a 2i it's newer, and there's no bad batch. Plus it's only a dollar more.

    if you can buy the better
    then go for it
    2i is a great deal so there's no problem

    Thanks for the info. The difference in price indeed is negligible, so that won't hold me back buying a 2i. The only thing what really mattered to me were the possible differences between the two, but seeing as they're exactly the same (with exception of DSi compatibility) there aren't any, which means I would definitely go for the 2i. The fact that there are some fake 2.1's on the market also concerns me.

    So thanks again, I'll wait for the SCDS2 anyway, but now I'm sure which Acekard to take if the SCDS2 turns out to be expensive garbage (which will be unlikely, but who knows).
