    I live in the U.K. and i finally have some money to buy a DS.

    I had a GBA and a flash cart years ago and used to love collecting and playing all the games, also got a wii (hardly used) and a psp.

    Anyway i was searching google UK and found this sponsered site http://www.technogizmos.co.uk/.

    They're selling a ds for £59 with free shipping, so thats like $120 and much cheaper than £100 in shops. Anyway, the site looks quite dodgey so was wondering what you guys made of it.

    Also i'll need a flash kit which I've started to look into but looks kinda confusing with all these different types and compatibility and slots :'(

    R4 plus EZFlash 3in1 Expansion Pack=The single best set-up ever. Full DS, full GBA, rumble, web browser. $60 at absolute complete maximum.

    I'd recommend the eWin GBA expansion over the EZF3in1.

    Great article - look through the comments as well.

    http://dsdatabase.org/bestflashcart.html

    I went with the CycloDS due to download play but R4 now has download play as well (I think). R4/M3 are probably the most popular but I like the CycloDS. My CycloDS is super simple to use - copy files/play. Just make sure to research whatever you get - some carts sound like pains with patching of roms and various other activities required to play games.

    looks very shady. Plus, you know the possibility of DS console going on sale less than MSRP is very small, unlike other accessories. But when you buy a DS and need a flash cart, http://www.emveegaming.com is a good site with free shipping and very fast email responses.

    Enough of your quick assumptions. He's helping a guy find a place to get a new DS.

    Enough of your trolling.

    This whole mimicking thing is getting annoying.

    When someone with an obviously random name goes around posting links to the same site, it brings his credibility into question, which is completely relevant when making purchases online.

    Urza's right in this case, surely this guy needs to be banned. (reported)
