    I put in an order yesterday. Used Google Checkout.
    I have a pending $54.99 charge from Google.

    Now I just gotta wait it out.

    If you use PayPal or Google Checkout you should be fine, if something goes wrong you are protected and the seller never gets to know any of your payment details.

    This is a relatively new site. I don't trust it and hey, it's always good to take precautions. The site I used to buy my CycloDS is realhotstuff. They have a great reputation, the price is $2 lower than dealwoot (but they don't have free shipping). However, their Cyclos are in stock right now and you can be guaranteed a current model from them.

    I'm not bashing dealwoot, in fact, I'd love to see how it turns out. Keep us updated, as many members will appreciate any feedback for new flash card dealers. [​IMG]

    Edit: Listen to sinkhead's advice, it's always good to use Paypal in case of scams.

    i guess none of you bothered to read the faq on their page. they are listed as an authorized retailer on team cyclop's page.

    I always use realhotstuff.com, like several others tempers around here. I purchased 2 more Cyclos a few weeks ago for $51 each. Had to pay a little for shipping, but that's still a good deal from a well-respected site. Dealwoot is probably ok, but I'd stick with realhotstuff, since so many have had good experiences with them.

    Can anyone that ordered one through here let me know if it is the newest model of the CycloDS? I've been tempted to order it from here because with free shipping it makes it seem like it is the best price. I would buy it from Real Hot Stuff, but they will end up taxing me since I am from NJ which is where they are located. Not that the tax would be much, but every penny helps.

    Edit: Nevermind, it seems that all Black versions of the CycloDS are HW 1.1, which is the newer version.

    They are getting in new stock, including Black ones, so I can't imagine any being the old hardware.

    I ordered black, since my main ds is black.

    I took the plunge yesterday and ordered it from dealwoot using paypal.

    There is a new update on thier site stating that Team Cyclops has pushed back delivery 10 days. They say they will refund anyone who wants to cancel there order. Not sure if im going to myself, but thats the status right now. It may be too good of a deal to cancel, $55 plus a Hori screen protector shipped.

    Yeah I just saw the news [​IMG]

    I suppose it depends how much of a hurry you are in. I have a slot-2 card so I can still play now anyway. Plus I would like to get it from someone in LA to reduce any potential return shipping costs if I have a problem.

    I kinda figured they might have pushed it back, but I am in no rush because I have still yet to pick out the best SD card for me.

    I am thinking about either a 2gb or 4gb sized card, but I am sure that 2gb would be plenty as all I plan on putting on there is DS games.

    Does anyone have any suggestions of the best 2 and 4 gb MicroSD cards? There are too many to choose from damn it, haha.

    For 2GB get a Kingston made in Japan if possible.

    I ordered this one from buy.com a couple months back and got a Japan one. It was on sale though.

    They do have this one on sale now for $10.95, can't hurt.

    I'm not sure on a MicroSDHC one, since I haven't gotten one yet. But you probably want to make sure it is a faster kind. I'll leave it up to someone with firsthand or better knowledge to let you know what to look for.

    Yes I was thinking a Kingston as well for the 2 GB. As for the SDHC cards, I hear all sorts of different opinions on which ones work best. I have heard some decent stuff aobut A-Data, and I was wonering if this card is a good choice?

    A-Data 4GB Micro SDHC Class 6

    It is Class 6, so it should be fast enough to handle and rom without any slowdown...hopefully.

    In my research I have seen the Adata 4GB Class 6 said to be a good card, though I don't have any links.

    You might want to search this forum more and the TeamCyclops forum. I did find this thread over there testing various MicroSDHC's

    I was also looking around on the Team Cyclops forum last night and came across a good amount of people with the A-Data 4GB Class 6 card who said that it was a pretty good card.

    I also read into that thread last night and it seems that it has fast read / write speeds, so that is good enough for me. I can't argue with that price either [​IMG]

    Only thing I have left to do is e-mail Dealwoot and ask them if I qualify for the upgraded shipping that they are giving people who pre-ordered the CycloDS before May 30th... even though I ordered mine at 1:00 AM on the 30th. Can't hurt to ask though!

    I just made the pre-order last night using PayPal. It looks like noone has it in stock. Now just gotta wait.

    I got my DSTT from them in the mail today! I ordered it on sunday and got it today (thursday). It works like a beauty and it was nicely packaged (cardboard box and bubble wrap)! They are a good choice to buy from, it only took 4 days to get to me!

    Got mine today! [​IMG]
    Helps that I live in LA, and not too far away from where they ship from.

    Setting it up now, and just in time for the latest firmware.
