    I might consider buying:
    -M3 Lite
    -Sandisk 1GB Ultra II MicroSD
    -Passcard 3

    But before I do so, I have a few questions:

    1. Does FlashMe Recovery Mode work?
    2. How good is the compatibility?
    3. And Battery Life while it's in the DSL?
    4. Since it's fully customizable, can I actually edit EVERYTHING in the loader? Or atleast remove all 'M3 Movie Player' messages
    5. How much of a hassle is it to just load GBA/NDS Games.
    6. Can it play MP3s while in sleepmode?

    1. Yes
    2. Great
    3. Flashed DS + M3 Lite = slight life drop due to M3 using more battery power
    Passcard 3 + M3 Lite = slightly more life drop due to M3 + Passcard using more battery power
    4. You can skin, nothing more
    5. This depends on whether or not you are inept.
    6. No, but moonshell doesn't sleep

    isnt it true that once you load up the M3 menu, you can take the passcard out? or maybe it's after the game is loaded....i'm facing the purchase choice but battery life isnt a huge factor for me, since i only play it at work and school, and i keep my charger at work.

    yea, out of my eight hour day here at my primary job, i only actually work for 3 or 4 hrs, and the rest of my time is spent playing my ds. the best part of it is, i practically have no co-workers( well, i have one, but she watches horror movies all day ), so no one to complain, and as long as i get what little work i'm suppose to do done, my boss doesnt care what i bring to work with me...the person i replaced said she read about 2 to 3 books a week. and my other job is at a video rental store, and i'm a 'shift leader' so all i have to do there is make sure my employee's are doing their job and i sit in the back office most the night playing....u guessed it, my ds. and on top of it all, i'm taking 6 semester hours, but i'm only in school 4 hrs a week.

    Well I work from home, so when there is work I do it, but the rest of the time I can do whatever I want, including playing my DS which hasn't arrived yet [​IMG]

    I'm planning on buying a Laptop so I can work at the beach.

    Damn... I work in a petroil company (I am a capitalist pig) and no way of playing it here. Actually gbatemp isn't blocked by "websense" yet because they didn't find out that it is a "Video-Games Category page".:-D

    I am the younger here... just one more person plays videogame here.

    I got an M3 Perfect mini SD, Passcard 3, 2Gb Mini SD card and USB card reader.
    The whole lot came to less than £100 - best buy I've made for ages.
    ROMs are a doddle to put on with the included software - conversion of each one takes about a minute
    My hardest choice now is which 70 or so games to have in my pocket out of the 550+.

    If you've got a DS lite and haven't got an M3 - Get one. They Rock!
    (and avoid Max Media like the plague!!!)

    Oh, and I get to play it a bit a work too (when it's quiet) so suppose that puts me into the lucky b*****d catagory too.
    It's a hard life working in I.T.
