    Currently I'm stuck between chosing a Acekard 2 and a DSTT. The pro for Acekard2 was a lot of positive reviews. The pro for DSTT was that it costs $28 with free shipping, 12 dollars cheaper than the Acekard2. Dunno if 12 extra dollars would be worth the supposely better card. Decisions, decisions...

    Go for the AK2 with AKAIO v1.0 Firmware [​IMG]

    - Lots more options [​IMG]
    - No slowdown in game browser when more then 4 games are on the TF (TTDS/DSTT suffers this problem)

    Unless you have lack on extra's and just want to play and sometimes cheat and don't care about the little slowdown when browsing your games, the TTDS/DSTT
    will serve you great.

    Avoid the Ak2, my died after 2 weeks of using it. Hopefull I can get if replaced with a CycloDS Evo from RHS. I loved the Ak2. awesome skins, great features. But quality control on it sucks.

    The biggest problem with the DSTT is the interface... it's too damn slow. And doesn't look that great either. AK2 is much better.

    There is some evidence that the recent hardware problems with the AK2 have been worked out in the latest batches. OzModChips reports that the latest batch they received so far had no returns, which is a good sign.

    The AK2 is better than the DSTT for most users. I'd still wait a week or two before buying an AK2 though, to make sure the latest batches are OK and to make sure that whatever store you might buy from is through the bad inventory.
