    Yeah, either deal extreme or focal price will get you dirt cheap deals. You might want to think about dropping the extra $5 and getting an Acekard2 though.

    i will never order from dealextreme ,though the price is cheaper.

    my friend order one r4 from them. one week past, they didn't ship the parcel out,
    She was angry, it took almost one month to receive the r4.

    Besides, why Acekard2 is better than dstt?

    dstt cons:

    - No file browser
    - No alphabetical sorting
    - Saves don't have separate folder
    - Game list lags
    - Doesn't support multiple skins
    - GBA support isn't built into the OS

    and, there are a lot of dstt fakes these days + the support is really bad

    to keep it fair, the acekard2 cons:

    - Have to compile cheat file for each game
    - Sturdiness is so-so

    (the cons come from the official gbatemp reviews)

    Acekard2 maybe has the best menu there is and is also updated the most of all flashcards

    heres a list of distributors if you want one: http://www.acekard.com/distributors.php

    The official gbatemp review is old. You don't have to compile the cheat file for each game. Also, the newest version of the flash cart are sturdier than the older versions (which were held together with plastic clips).

    I bought my DSTT from Game Yeeeah, and they sent me one that is almost definitely real, and they sent me TWO for some reason, and still only charged me once.

    I bought mine from DealExtreme for only $5.93. It also had free shipping. I got it within 1 week. It also says on their website that they are checking all of them for fakes. I would recommend DealExtreme!

    Let me add another vote for DealExtreme. The card was here pretty fast (under 10 days) considering that I am in Central Europe, and it is a genuine DSTT as far as I can tell (the flash checker confirmed it's genuine, although I removed the fake-killer code from firmware just in case).

    However, if I were to pick a flash card these days, I'd probably opt for an Acekard, if only for firmware updates. The DSTT team do not seem to be doing anything since I got my DSTT, apart from their website disappearing for a few days.

    Don't buy with reader option. It's a c**p reader.

    Mine didn't work on PC or laptop.

    Just my opinion

    Seconded. The USB reader not only looks incredibly cheap (honestly, can it be made any cheaper?), but mine also stopped working after a few weeks of use.

    I got my DSTT from dealextreme.com. I got for $12 because it came with a 2GB microSD card and the reader, and free shipping (free shipping is almost a must in Canada, otherwise shipping is outrageous).

    And yes, I agree don't get the card reader, mine broke after 2 days, I was taking it out of the computer and everything except for the actual part that plugs into the computer broke.
