    It's a DS card, not a 3DS card so it will only play DS games, just making sure you knew that!

    Ordered one from a reseller in my country and yesterday I picked it up from the post office.

    The card is ok.

    Pros:
    - It has a sturdy enough plastic case.
    - The games do not seem to lag at all (using the internal Toshiba 4 GB class 4 microSD card from my N3DS).
    - I like the icon on the homescreen (Bomberman), unlike Spongebob or some random Japanese title. It looks ok.
    - You can return to the ROM menu by pressing the L+R+A+B+X+Y buttons (like pretty much all of R4 clones).

    Cons:
    - It only seems to support 4 skins at a time, so you may wanna delete some of them from the "skins" folder or download additional ones from http://r4i-sdhc.com (not from http://r4isdhc.com).
    - As per the above link, the card is a clone of a clone, of a clone (the r4isdhc.com flashcart is a clone of the red packaging r4i-sdhc.com, which is a clone of the R4i Gold 3DS, which is a clone of the original R4 card). Yeah...
    - Scrolling though the games seems a bit sluggish, but like I said, I'm using the internal Toshiba 4 GB class 4 from my N3DS... Maybe a class 10 card would work better, IDK.
    - So far, only one game resulted in a white screen using this card: Prince of Persia Forgotten Sands. But I should probably try a different ROM or from a different region (DS compatibility on the 3DS is region-free by default). All of the other games that I'm interested in are working just fine, so... for a $10 card it does the job.


    PS: Next time please specify in the title that you're talking about DS flashcarts, not flashcarts in general.
