    I am interested in a flashcard to play NDS games on my 2DS, and I heard the R4i is the best for that, and also the cheapest (I am only interested in NDS games, not emulators). But there seem to be a lot of versions and clones, and I just don't know which one to get. I have a FW 9.2 2DS with 10.3 emunand.
    Also, if someone can recommend a good seller for europe (I'm looking at nds-card.com right now) that would be great also =)

    R4i Gold 3DS and R4iTT 3DS RTS are great flascarts that work on latest firmware.

    Thank you, I had never heard of R4iTT 3DS RTS. Besides R4i Gold 3DS, there's also R4isdhc Gold Pro (http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=490), which is a little cheaper, but I don't know if it's good or not.

    Wow, everything's cheaper on that website. Is it sort of like aliexpress? Is it tustworthy? There's also an eachmall.com, but it seems to be a different website with different products.

    I have seen a couple of users who were unhappy buying the Dual Core, they say it was crap compared to others... Maybe that's why it's so cheap? IDK

    As for the Gold Pro I have no idea about its quality or known anyone who used it before.

    I personally have only used the 2 I mentioned above and they work As top notch :grog:

    Sorry, I quickly read it.

    If he's interested in this one, here's a list of the places where he can get it.

    I bought an R4i Gold Pro 2015 for my 10.1 N3DS, and it works absolutely amazingly and flawlessly.

    I got mine from eBay, but I guess the stock depletes in a flash.

    So yours is an earlier version of this one? http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=490 (If there's even any difference)

    It's trustworthy, I bought my Gateway there among other things. The .com one is owned by the same people, the difference being that the .me website is their flashcart/modding-oriented store that does NOT accept PayPal (due to PP's strict rules) whereas the .com site does.
    I can recommend this particular cart: http://www.eachmall.com/goods-5651-5651.html
    As others have mentioned, it's one of the best DS flashcarts, and that's the best price I've seen for it.

    I got a bit suspicious because on the top part of the eachmall.com page it says "This is Unique Eachmall Official Online Store !", as if they're aware that there are other fake stores. But I made an account at eachmall.me and I was able to login with the same account at eachmall.com, so they must be the same.
    However, the link you sent is for the .com website and it doesn't seem to show any product.

    Huh, the link works fine here. That's strange.
    I just changed the link to .me and that works too: http://www.eachmall.me/goods-5651-5651.html

    Oh, ok, this one works, thanks! This is the best price for it that I have seen, I think I'll use this store.
