    What are the websites that sell flash carts and:

    - sell at a reasonable price
    - quick delivery turnaround
    - sells GENUINE products

    Others that can be considered as well:
    - good customer support
    - good reputation
    - bundles (ex. one store sells CycloDS by itself for £30 but the other store sells CycloDS + a memory card for the same price)

    I've bought from model-gadget but they're not the cheapest at all.

    Dealextreme delivery here isn't that bad, usually between 7-14 days, they sell very cheap prices and most of their stuff is genuine, if it's not they don't advertise it as made by the original company.

    ConsoleUP is very reliable, very reputable, but not the cheapest ... but they dispatch ultra-fast, and I have never had any problems with them, at all ...

    sweat! i just saw this thread and found out that play.com sells 4GB for £13, even thought its sandisk(heard it sandisk is rather slow) i just went and ordered 3 anyway. hmm anywhere i can get a 8GB cheap?

    Im in UK too. everythere i see sells them like £40-£60

    back to topic....
    i brought my flashcarts fron Dealextreme. i pay a little bit more to get the express delivery (3-5working days.) and they are great. i ordered many times from them. my last order was placed on the 4th this month. and i tracked it, right now the status is waitin on delivery (im writing this at 1:36am.) so i should get it in the morning. 3days and i get my item. =D super fast service at Dealextreme for it to deliver in 3 days. normally it takes a few days for them to post stuff.

    I've got Sandisk 8GB and it's perfect. Trust me.

    I bought my CycloDS from consoleup.com and I'm very happy with their service. I bought my 8GB microSD from eBay for £20. A bargain!

    is the 8GB realiable? notice any slow downs? and how many MB was lost on the micro sd? hmm if its £20... i might look into ebay. (i buy other stuff from ebay but memory cards or harddrives... i have an issue with them, i have to know if they real or fake or if they are from china or not. i been scammed wif fake MS Pro duo's before on ebay, and from a seller from china.)

    Yup I know what you mean about eBay. It was £20 so I thought screw it and see what happens with my luck. Seem I was very lucky.


    Nope, I haven't noticed any slow downs. MB...I've got no ideas. Sorry. Too many games in my microsd just now. [​IMG]

    I even tested problematic games such as Castlevania and Mario Kart download - no problems. If you want me to test games for you to help you to decide if you should buy Sandisk - then ask me. I'll be happy to help you out.

    lol. hmm screw it! i'll try my luck too. i found an ebay seller from UK selling 8GB's for £22 and postage is £3... the details say they will posted it witht he box as well. so that sounds fair. anything thats not from china and unbox. its fine with me to try. i got money spare lately anyway. so £25 would be fine. (i brought 3 flashcarts in the past month anyway. so what the heck!)



    p.s. 3 flashcarts this month + the R4 i got before that = 4 flashcarts... =.=!! im addicted in gettin flashcarts now. i like to play around with the settings and customizing it.

    Another lucky bargain? I'm happy with CycloDS so it's enough [​IMG] If I try to change setting and customizing I know I'll screw it up. [​IMG]

    What company is it?

    So PoR and MKDS works fine? How about NSMB, Mario 64, and the FFCC: Ring of Fates? Does it still give the "moogle of death"?

    You are welcome. Make sure you get genuine SD Card - too many fakes from Hong Kong.

    I'm in the UK and sell EDGE, R4 , TTDS and the 3 M3 REAL carts.
    I won't link my site as it will probably be removed as 'advertising'.
    It's been running over a year and nearly 1500 registered customers.

    Anyone interested, drop me a mail with the best UK price you've found, and I'll try to beat it.
    Same day posting, via Royal Mail 1st class recorded, or Special if over £50.

    Call it a GBAtemp offer !!

    cheers
