    I bought a DSTT from Quantronics and I can recommend it. There have been lots of fake DSTT cards going around, but mine was genuine and great quality (Micro SD card didn't stick out, etc.). They also managed to ship it in less than 5 business days, which is good considering people have been waiting for stuff from other stores for months. You could probably shop around to find better prices, but the Cyclo seems like it's alright value there.

    Even though they don't support PayPal, I HIGHLY recommend OzModChips.

    Cheapest prices, fantastic support, and very trustworthy.

    I just checked out the Cyclo on Oz Mod Chips, and Quantronics is slightly cheaper ($4 difference and both offer free shipping). That said, I couldn't see a Micro SD bundle with the Cyclo on Quantronics (which is odd, because they have them with DSTT, EDGE, R4...). So if you're looking on buying a Micro SD card also, you might as well go with Oz Mod Chips. Unless you can find a bundle on Quantronics somewhere...

    Theres Modariffic too, but they're out of stock for a week.

    And just like OzModChips they don't support PayPal.

    Just bear in mind free shipping = no CycloDS tin. Should you wish to also receive the tin you will need to part with some more $. The website states this.
    I think its usually wise to buy the microsd elsewhere, as buyers normally get screwed on 'bundles'. You're usually better advised to check out your local computer swap meet for mem cards & the like for great prices.

    What about providing PayPal-support for users who buy other stuff, like DS flashcards? If such a thing was possible, I'm sure more people would buy at OzModChips.

    Its pretty hard to only allow paypal for certain products on your website.
    We are the biggest flash card seller in australia, and we definately don't need paypal for it. Actually, when we disbaled paypal and added our credit card gateway our sales increases by a large percentage. Our dealings with paypal in the past have been pretty shit. They will give money back to a buyer if the item is not trackable online. The cheapest way to get a trackable item properly within australia is $14 for express post platinum. We have free postage on all items...so factoring in $14 would be impossible

    quantronics accepts paypal with no tracking at all, not even buy phone etc.
    So anyone, and i mean anyone, can just click their some buttons in paypal, and in 30 seconds, Mr. Quantronics doesn't have his money.

    ozmodchips is very busy without the need to accept --> i love this picture
    i can take one everyday like this if you want [​IMG]

    Modariffic does support paypal but there will be a little charge to cover his fees which is fair enough.
    Just email them.
    Also Modariffic is alot cheaper then everyone else.
    Never ever had a problem with paypal.

    Cheers

    Quantronics are a good company to deal with, very professional and speedy.

    Funny the whole Paypal thing be mentioned as well, i paid via Bank transfer at Modariffic and would of preferred Paypal at the time but for the price of $49.95 i couldnt help myself... [​IMG]

    Looking at thier forums like mentioned above it seems they are in stock and accepting orders via Paypal? see how things go i guess..

    I snapped one up at $49.95 too [​IMG] .

    Too bad they got threatened by TC since the price was too low (it was about $40 USD). It was like what happened to DX when they stocked the Cyclo's at $36 USD (or close to that).

    Just a quick question: Considering Quantronics is stocking the CycloDS now, is it possible to do a pickup from their storefront? It does say on their site but I want some clarification. If so, then i'd say it's pretty good value, for people in the Sydney area at least - you get the tin as well.
