    I'm planning on buying a ds flashcard and found that the acekard2 was the cheapest in modchipcentral here? i have some questions:
    1. does modchipcentral sell acekard2.1?
    2. do a lot of the acekard died within a few months of use?
    3. is the acekard the best flashcart for the price?
    thank you [​IMG]

    Umm... the best price on the Acekard is at DealExtreme... $12.05 without an adapter: http//www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.16142

    1. As far as I know, the one on DX is version 2.1

    2. Most of those problems were with the first versions and were caused by bad batches.

    3. IMHO, the Acekard is the best card for its price. It has a bunch of features (at least with AKAIO) and is WAY cheaper than almost any other card (that works).

    All your questions were pretty much answered in the post prior to mine. I would definitely buy from DX because of the cheaper price. The shipment is quite long, but if you can wait it will be well worth it.

    Yes, I've gotten several shipments from them, including an Acekard. Roughly 2 weeks for the ship time, though it might be a bit longer around the holidays. Yeah it's long, but you do eventually get your goods, the shipping is free, and they even do P.O. Boxes (Great for us college students!).

    Will also vouch for DealsExtreme. Used them about 4 times now for various stuff and never had any problems whatsoever. Personally I've always been happy with shipping time to Australia from them... usually about 10 days or so give or take. Obviously can't comment for shipping to US but I would have thought if you give them 2 weeks it shouldn't be far off the mark.

    I can verify that! I live in Australia, received my AK2 in 6 working days. I'm a very happy customer =]

    i decided that i will buy from modchipcentral because i'm using my dads credit card and he'll freak out if it doesn't come soon. modchipcentral also said that they have v2 Acekard's but will send me a v2.1 if I ask. Is there anyway to check to see if I got a v2.1? thanks.

    I went with stuffs4kids, personally. I probably paid double what DX charges but I wanted a US seller and they guarantee shipping 2.1 cards.

    Kingston and Sandisk are probably the best brands you can get. Just google search for places that sell them cheap.
