    dstwo has the best rom compatibility of any cart
    but the acekard is a good choice too

    the dstwo dosen't need to be constantly updated to be compatible

    I guess they're both good.

    We have DSTwo lovers and Akaio lovers here.

    If you really need the extra features, get a DSTwo.

    If you don't need them (like I do), get AK2.

    Or get simply both. They're not that expensive, are they?

    dstwo is the newest card with a lot of extra features and the company is updating quickly
    with the AK2i they are not updating the card and letting the AKAIO do the updating

    I have the AceKard but looking to pick up a dstwo if they ever get the divx support done.

    so if looking to go cheep pick up the acekard and if you want the extra features pick up the dstwo.

    with how low the price is on the flash cards just pick up both. [​IMG]

    About 1 in 100 games I've tried don't work. The only thing I've noticed is that when a game doesn't work they never fix it unless it's a big title. It's still the best card at the moment.

    DStwo trounces AK2i in firmware support, game compatibility, and features. However, it's battery life is a big downer for some people. AK2i is a safe bet for you. It's a solid card and it's $20 cheaper.

    If you want to play GBA games on a DSi then the SCDS2 is your only choice out of the two.

    Yes. Works with every ROM released so far. That's why I love Akaio. [​IMG]

    No. Gamespeed is incredible fast and good. I hope it's the same with DSTwo, but I don't know that.

    There's only one thing I don't like about AK2: The build quality. It's a cheap card. But it works just perfect.

    Oh no, the AK won't break into pieces. Don't worry about that. It just looks and feels like a cheap piece of plastic.

    I guess, it actually is a cheap piece of plastic... [​IMG]

    I'd be surprised if you sat on it, I find that I just keep my DSTwo in my DS unless I'm adding games
