    I think they should of waited with pictures until it doesn't look like it was put together with Scotch Tape...

    Oh wait, AceKard!? The offical flash cart of Mortal Kombat! [​IMG]

    Nice. A new slot-1 flashcard. Looks like things will be heating up in the slot-1 scene:)
    Speaking of which, why does the feature list sound to similar to the DS-Xtreme? If it does support the touted features, then DS-Xtreme will have some tough competition:)
    Here's hoping it's not one of those flashcards released only in asia...

    Well, it uses SD for memory and they say it won't require patching, so I say it's interesting, dslink have no passme capabilities and needs patching, dsxtreme has no expandable memory so...

    Exactly, but whether or not this product will see the light of day outside of China, and offer continuous updates/support is the deciding factor! [​IMG]

    As long as the roms in fact don't need patching I think continuous updates won't be that needed.

    I like the menu, looks fast and to the point ... I hope they don't 'gay' it up. [​IMG]

    GUI looks sleek and efficient. I like the icon on the top screen.

    Great! A DS-X with expandable memory! We still don't know if this "no patching required" feature will really hold up, though.

    I agree x_comp, I’ve herd this a few times before then when the
    product hits, patching is required after all. But there’s always a first time. [​IMG]

    This is obviosuly the best solution but I'm not getting my hopes up on the no slowdown/no patching part. I'll believe it when this product delivers its claims. But if it does, I'll be first in line for a couple of them.

    what's with all these posts like micro sd on slot 1 is a new thing, it's long out guys and it's called a ds-link. what's special about this are the other claims.

    Of course, but claiming not to need flash/passme is king.
