    The build quality looks like it went down a bit. I would buy, if i had money left.. ='( is there a difference between this one and the old one?

    That's very cheap, especially considering it's one of the best carts available! I heard the build quality of the hardware has also been improved (with the AceKard 2.1), so it's one of the best choices now. As far as I know, only the DSTT is cheaper (at 11 dollars) but it has less options and worse support.

    Man that's cheap... I don't even want to imagine what sort of conditions these are made in [​IMG]

    Maybe they have a trained team of chained monkeys that are assembling them? Then again,.. that would be a bonus.

    Prices sure have gone down A LOT in the past few years. I remember when the first DS flashcarts ran at around $60 shipped. (Or more) And before that, GBA flashcarts used to cost over a hundred. Now we can get a great flashcart and a 2GB MicroSD for about half the price of some games. It's almost absurd.

    Does the AK2 support DS to Wii connectivity like the CycloDS?

    Hell, I'd buy one now if I weren't already saving up for another game.

    My R4 isn't detecting as well in my DS these days so I just placed an order for the AK2 and a 3-in-1 adapter. I took care to order a seperate MicroSD adapter as I could use one that doesn't blow.

    Well to make these things it takes like a few slots and on chip. Its a one chip solution basically. And there's hardly anymore R&D going on so I'd expect them to be extremely cheap now...DS piracy is officially mainstream.

    I think I'm going to pick one of these up and a 1GB microSD card using those DX points I've accumulated over the past 2 years. My SuperCard CF would like to retire.

    I heard a few things about the Acekard2. The newest version is something like 2.1 right? If I order from Dealextreme, would I get this newest version.

    And I also heard of people getting defective ones a few months ago. Has this been fixed? And is there any way AK2 can harm my DS?

    What you said, only my gf has a R4.

    I got my AK2 for free btw, but this is a very low price, this is like 8 euros and 30 cents...
