    Yeah. Get it from RealHotStuff and tell them you want the non-Actel version. You'll be fine.

    if you want to get all the features then CycloDS is apparently the best choice, if your going to get an acekard then get the 2i as apparently the 2 has some bugs. I don't actually own either of these and am fine with my original R4 but you might want to look at the Supercard DStwo/one because of that new firmware there going on about

    From what I read earlier in another topic, this is sound advice.

    Personally love my Acekard 2i. Works great with Akaio 1.5.1 and an EZ3in1Plus for GBA games.

    The Acekard 2.1 has save issues, get the Acekard 2i instead as it's only a few $$$ more..

    The usual ones are Acekard2i, M3DS Real and Supercard DSONE. The CycloDS Evolution is a great card also.

    I would have to say M3i Zero and M3 Real.
    Nothing R4 though

    The best card out there right now is the cyclo ds Evolution.

    If you cant afford that one get Edge/iedge or Acekard2i.

    The Edge for now. Simple, well built, and affordable. The team updates it just a bit slower then the other companies.

    M3 Real, especially since we have the Sakura firmware. V.nice and slick to use. Just my opinion though

    It's basically a very stripped down CycloDS, so I still think the CycloDS is better.

    I for one go for the AceKard. Even though I wrongly bought a R4 SDHC. [​IMG]

    TBH you wouldn't go wrong with either of those cards. I have an AK2 myself and have no problems with it.

    I've had a lot of cards, and the CycloDS Evolution is the best one.
    I still use it till this day, and sold all my other cards, because this card just rules them all.

    Right behind you
    AceKard 2.1 with AKAIO would be my vote.... does everything you need it too, has awesome compatibility, anything that doesn't work right away is fixed preatty quickly. The only thing worthwhile cyclo gives you AK does is save states. Not worth the huge price difference if you ask me.
