    I am a reseller in Holland for different products and I would like to buy R4 cards for nintendo DSI. For days Im searching for original R4 cards that support Nintendo DSI, SDHC and RTS. But it is very hard for me to find a supplier or manufacturer that has the original R4 cards. Everyone is blaming each other that they have the original and the rest is fake/clone.

    The following website http://www.linfoxdomain.com/nintendo/ds/ tells me that the R4 of r4rts.cn is the original DSI card. But when I contact this manufacturer I get a reply from the following website: www.gamekool.com
    They represent themself as the general agent of R4. But with a google search on this company I find some bad reviews and also of the blacklist of gbatemp. Is this maybe also fake or scam? Or can I trust this company?

    I am interested in the R4 cards because the market on Holland ask for this brand. Can anybody help me out with a manufacturer/supplier, that has original cards and delivers fast? Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    From GBAtemp, they have some news about the R4i RTS. Here's the thread: R4i RTS announced.

    That R4i RTS is made by the M3 Team. And Gamezway is the only site that GBAtemp has linked for selling the R4i RTS. So far, that is the best I can do. No where else I know has the R4i RTS that is real.

    And also, this is their real site: R4i RTS Site (The real one)

    Thanks! When I trace r4rts.cn I get other contact information then r4rts.com. So I can assume that r4rts.cn is fake?

    Not exactly... I was just comparing the two sites and they look exactly identical. Except a few minor differences. Such as the email. But it is safe to say, that the one from GBAtemp (r4rts.com) is not fake. Try sending them an email and that'll tell you something.

    If you get the same reply, they may be the same people, but at the moment, it seems to me that the R4RTS.cn might be people selling a fake.

    Great. Have send an email to the real website and will see if this gets me the same reply or something else.

    edit
    Another question. Why is it that all the websites only have their email address as contact. Normal company's always have their address, phone number, fax etc.
    Why would an original producer hide this information?

    Don't wanna be sued of course. Or if someone attacks them xDD.

    But that's just me... They sell one of the most popular flashcarts. And any company would know of them... People such as Nintendo want to track these people down... So yea, that's what I think.

    If i were you, I would avoid that.
    They woudnt know which one is real and which one is fake.
    If you want to waste 2 months, returning your fake R4, wait for replacement etc, then go ahead and order.

    Chances are low that they will send you a real one, with all the fakes in their stock..

    edit: i am not against DX, I do buy alot of stuffs from there. But in the case of R4/DSTT.. I would just avoid them.

    As said before 4CoolDay.com has the R4i RTS for a reasonable price ($19.50) with probably cheaper prices if buying in bulk.

    R4 RTS website is R4rts.com

    R4RTS.CN is hold by this company, they have a lots of domains:

    Like :gamekool,depot4u,digimartz,

    If you just want to buy one, you can trust them, but for wholesale,,, best try r4rts.com

    so the R4RTS.CN is a scam website? my supplier says that M3 has two website for R4RTS - both the CN and COM.

    I emailed them and said both are identical. They didnt told me where they got theirs.
