    I narrowed my next flashcard purchase to either an AK2, SC-DS1, or M3 Real.

    AK2 is so cheap and apparently has a great GUI, while the SC-DS1 has RTS/ingame guid, and the M3 Real is going to have sakura very soon...

    What do you think?!?!

    help! so many choices...

    SCDS-1, it's a no brainer, people make too much fuss about guis ect, features and support is where it's at.

    Well, what do you want it to do? If we don't know that, this question is impossible to answer properly.

    Scds1 for sure, but I have to say I love the GUI and speed of the Ak2.

    SC-DS One if you want a lot of functions.

    AK2 or M3 Real if you like cool menus (not that the one of the SCDS One isn't cool... still it's just Moonshell [​IMG]) [​IMG]

    Until M3Sakura is out the M3Real isn't that good.

    True, but I was considering the M3 Real already with Sakura in mind [​IMG]

    Then go with SCDS One. Full of functions to play around, and even the possibility to triple boot SCDS Menu, YSMenu and DSTT Menu [​IMG]

    The SC-DS1 is 31 bucks now at DX.

    But I think it's better to wait and see until the Sakura is out. If you like the finalized firmware, then it'd be a better choice.

    also, if you want to play GBA games, having a native GBA cart would make it really easy to load/play/save/etc your GBA games

    Good tip.

    Also, the M3 Real might be your choice if you want a GBA cart for rumble/ram/GBA games that works straight from the menu.

    You'll find the reviews of the SuperCard DS One, Acekard 2, and M3 DS Real on that page and can compare them according to their scores.

    But the SCDS One's review is SOOOO old [​IMG]

    It doesn't talk of the new features and still has many cons which have been corrected in the newest firmwares [​IMG]

    ^Agreed.

    Supercard DS (ONE) SDHC no questions asked. Everything except the GUI is perfect. (:

    If anyone's interested, I have the review of the SCDS1 SDHC, including the Realtime save, etc.

    It's in my blog.

    Lol @ OP. He's basically asking the same question as I am. Both OP and I narrowed our flash cards down to the same 3 choices.

    In my thread, the OP told me to go for the AceKard2 or the SCDS1.

    How good is the M3 Sakura anyways? Is there a significant difference between the original M3 Real and M3 Sakura?

    Well, the M3 Sakura seems to have a significant different compared to the original M3 Real. The GUI looks fantastic, fixes some lag problems in the original M3 real, less bugs, more functions, etc. Still nothing advanced, like RTS though.
