    If you live in Vancouver, then I think that there may be a store that sells R4's and other flash carts. Key word. I THINK.

    http://www.dealextreme.com/ are good but they take AAAAAAAGES to come

    so if you want it cheap and don't mind to wait a long long time then go with them.

    they don't take aaaaaaages to come. that was just while there was the giant r4 restocking mess, because everyone underestimated its popularity.

    I got it from dx before that whole saga, and it took 16 days to get here. last time I checked 16 days isn't (a^7)ges.

    The word in Hong Kong is that the company/factory was shut down due to litigations.
    That's why the prices of the cart has doubled and there is no stock at most stores.

    I would not recommend them, I ordered 1 R4DS back then and it came poorly packaged, the microSD reader was damaged and the mini cd was destroyed... Told them about it and they kinda said that it was not their problem... but maybe it's just a bad luck.
