    since this is a simple question and there is not enough context here you could use the threads you made yesterday to ask this?

    read what i said yesterday.. about a r4 from r4ids.cn
    ebay is a really bad website to buy card from.. they are forgibben to sell on ebay, so the sellers don't show the front for several reasons.. including cards are shitty clones

    anyway. did you got the card already? if it works, and does the job, there is not much to worry\think off..
    remember this is all china stuff, it's very rare to get quality stuff

    I have not received it yet due to the fact I am from the UK and the seller is from Canada and R4s are HIGHLY illegal in the UK.
    Once I receive it I will try it out and tell you.
    I do not like buying cards from places that tell you to put in your card info. Even though it says it is trusted.

    i understand and i think you do great!
    however, there are visa gift\prepaid cards, you can get one with the ammount you have to pay, this way, websites dont get your real card, and usually they have a limit and are very secure...
    this way they don't steal your real card...

    the card you showed yesterday from ebay, it is not the card that i was talking about... but probably it will do the job just fine.. and since it was not that expensive IIRC...

    it was only roughly £12 and the currency changes from Canadian dollars to GBP is extremely cheaper.
    If the card plays my roms fine then i wont have an issue
    but if theres issues with it i might consider getting a card from r4ids.cn
