    Hi i'm after a slot 2 device for my NDS, for mainly playing GBA games.
    I found the EZ flash on winsunx are they a reputable company to order from?

    Any recommendations on devices and webshops would be fantastic.

    Thanks.

    If you already have a slot 1 card, go for an EZ-Flash 3in1. It even has extra RAM (16MB) and a rumble pack (kinda loud though :/) built-in. Make sure you grab a copy of GBA ExpLoader by Rudolph so you can write to the card.

    I also suggest that you buy from RealHotStuff. That's where I ordered both of mine from and I got them both in only three days (standard shipping). (direct link to product)

    i got the EZ-V 3in1 (GBA size) off winsunx, it's a piece of crap. half the time the DS doesn't even detect it. and when it does you have about a 50% chance of the game starting with graphical corruption and deleting the save. haven't heard of other people having this issue though, maybe i just got a faulty one. ah well.

    The 3 in 1 is good for the rumble and the ram but I pref a Supercard SD (mini if you dont want the bottom sticking out) which are pretty cheap now.

    Free shipping. Usually fast shipping as well.

    Supercard sucks for GBA, which is what the OP requested.
    If you have a little bit more to spend, like around $80, get an M3 perfect.
    Otherwise get an EZIV MiniSD.

    If you really want to go budget then get the Elink GBA cart from DX.

    The supercard isnt all that bad and its pretty cheap. Only real problem is that you have to use RTS because it wont save reg.

    It tends to be the games with unoptimised engines (camelot games in particular) that slowdown. Most games are entirely playable for me.
