    I am trying to replace my ancient original R4DS with a new Acekard or a iEdge or something else. Can someone recommend to me which one is better and your experiences and if there is a better one please let me know. M3i and Cyclops are expensive for me so I am just looking at the Acekard and the iEdge. I plan to buy from http://www.0shippingzone.com/ if there is a place that is cheaper tell me please. Thanks.

    AK2i is better hands down due to better support

    lately I've been leaning toward the Supercard. It has the new EVO OS that has 4 rea time save slots. You get multiple SAV slots, real time guide. It has clean mode so you can run most games without having to wait for the update. It not that much more than a Acekard and it's definitely better.

    The acekard definitely gets much faster updates, though.

    acekard 2i should be better with software side

    The Acekard 2i doesn't come with a usb reader from the manufacturer, but many vendors will throw one in just to be nice.

    I think I am going to get the AK2i to replace my old R4 but the iEdge costs $1.25 more and it seems more sturdy.. My friend had one, what about the AKRPG?


    EDIT: Looking at this Edge seems to update their firmware often and there is a unofficial developer for firmware for the AK2i AKAIO.. I hope my kard won't be un-useful after the guy stops developing like the R4DS.. I found a AK2i for $16.45 and a iEdge for $17.25 which one do you think is a better deal in the long run?

    iEdge is more sturdy and also dont use a spring in the microsd slot.

    Support is about the same for both cards, just waiting for the new iEdge update to fix Wario.
