    Go with nds-card. They are gbatemps official sponsor, about as legit as it gets. They are based in china, but many people on this site can tell you they are competently legit. I would advise to see if you can install cfw first. As long as you are on 10.7 or lower, it is very simple to downgrade and install cfw, which is %100 free, and has much more features than a sky3ds. Tell us your firmware on your 3ds, and I can help

    If you want to buy from the US, I recommend this site:
    http://modchipsdirect.com

    Not only do they have great prices, the shipping is quick compared to sites outside the US. Bought from them twice, with no problems.

    I can say yes nds-card is legit. It seems a little sketch with the way they take payment, but it's through paypal so you have that as a middleman if anything does happen and I've received my goods in about 7-10 days.

    @vb_encryption_vb charges $65 + shipping for a hardmod. He is by far the most reliable hard modder in the us, and his work is very professional. He has done many, many consoles and is very reliable. A hard mod is deffinatly the way to go as it makes you impervious to bricks, and is cheaper than a sky3ds. And if you are on a9lh, you can easily play games online without setting up private headers. Plus, you can do cool stuff like cheats and boot animations. Keep in mind that is is a bit more confusing to set up than a sky3ds, but in my option it is well worth it.

    they dont have the best customer service if your item dies on you. it took them 4 weeks to respond to my emails about a defective MT card (back when that thing was the best lol), and told me there was nothing they could do. aside from that, ive had good dealings with them.
