    I was searching a lot both on google and on the forums but haven't been able to find anyone who not only ordered but also actually received something from http://r4i-3ds.com/ (in fact, even finding someone who ordered was quite hard) - it raised a little flag of "scam or not?" in me so I'd be really grateful if someone could report their succesful order. Anyone?

    They claim to be getting a second batch already (when most places don't have their first), and I don't think anyone said they ever got one from that "first batch" either...
    ... stick with one of the official retailers, or aliexpress ships w/in ~24hrs if you want to take the risk of getting a damaged product like some people have.

    That's actually a really good point, thanks. I guess I'll just try to find some official reseller which doesn't take eternity to ship, if there's any :D

    You can ask still a full refund. I have trust in them.
    I ordered when it has a nice discount.

    Yeah, but regretfully the keyword here is "can" - though technically I'd be able to apply for a refund in case something happens, I'd rather refrain from trying to settle anything in English with a Chinese store selling fakes. It'd take freaking years to achieve something :)

    They are just amazing!!!
    I ordered 1 Gateway 3ds and 1 kingston micro 8gb on 27Aug and got them on 6Sept. They work perfectly.
    Viet from Perth, AUS.

    PS They made me more surprise because they gave me a beat earphone for free (well, who know its quality :D)

    I'm aware of that secret gift. I got already good earphones but this looks also nice.
    I love this kind of earphones.

    Edit: I got it now. Everything works perfectly. I didn't get a gift but I think it is because I had a huge discount to €54.

    I received mine yesterday, too. Ordered Aug 28. Everything works perfectly and it seems it really is from the second batch since the box is no longer this ugly cardboard with bruises all over but a nice glossy plastic instead.

    Oh, and as for the gift Beats - they look absolutely stunning though be prepared that the sound is really, REALLY bad :)

    They told me that you get this gift above $99.

    Those are definitely fake Beats, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that they're terrible quality. Not that the real thing is that great either, for the price it's pretty shoddy.

    Try http://www.0shippingzone.com/gateway-3ds-cards-for-nintendo-3ds.html, they have the best price, but they don't have labels for blue cards and inner plastic things for packaging ATM. Just contact them right away after ordering and say that they can ship without them.
    It’s a mirror for realhotstuff with different payment system. Couldn’t order from RHS so the staff redirected me to 0SZ and everything went good. They are going to ship my package tomorrow.
