    I took a gander at your shop and saw this one that looked like a steal. 2.70 for an r4 revolution.
    I have a few questions about the dealer:

    1: do they sell the OFFICIAL R4 REVOLUTION that is compatible with R4 Wood?
    2: Has anyone ever purchased one from this distributor.
    3: Really never trusted the Chinese when it comes to delivery ( only food *yum*), are they reliable?

    I obtained an R4 but to my dismay it was a Clone and now I'm sad.
    This is the site with the sweet deal can someone help me out?

    I guess you could pay with PayPal and be safer that way..

    Honestly, I have never heard of the site, their deals do look good though.

    If you do go forward with the purchase, let us all know when you get it if it is original [​IMG]

    I would check out lightake.com
    IIRC they have the same deals, but you can be sure to trust them.

    Yeah, I suggest Lightake. They're a really good site, and they're only charging 10 cents more than that site you linked to.

    Any site that specifically names itself after an R4 clone looks to be a site that's just picking up on the craze, not one that's serious about delivering a good product.

    Also, don't get an R4 clone, you'll regret it later.

    I bought some shit at ndscardsale (google it)

    It was an r4 and a 2gb microsd

    It was a 1:1 clone (r4 compatible), about $2 and the card was about $7 all in all, I paid $10 in paypal.

    It was arrived here after about 3 weeks

    inside was the r4 (no card reader) and the microsd, which to my surprise, is a 4gb microsd. [​IMG] they must have mixed up or something, anyway, I got lucky. [​IMG]

    Supercard DSTWO.

    If you don't want emulators and some extra functionality, acekard should be fine.

    That was during Christmas time and the problem wasn't just lightake.com. I've ordered a few times from Lightake.com during the last 6 months and the products have been in my hand in around 2-3 weeks (incl. Christmas time) of which the delay was because of Hong Kong post not sending the stuff to my country. I'd imagine they wait for a certain amount of packages before they put them on the plane.

    @OP:
    All in all considering different shops, my recommendation is the following: If you want a certain product, go for a shop that has been around for a while. A shop selling only flashcarts isn't necessarily a bad thing, but usually they can't manage with only flashcarts. Also as mentioned before, a site which is named after a clone card, isn't necessarily the best considering support/refunds if you have problems with your product.

    Considering shipping times, think about the following: There isn't a thing called "Free shipping". Shipping costs at least a few cents and this is a fact, otherwise it'd be a free service for everyone. If you pay about $3 for a product, you can be sure that the shipping method used will not be a courier from UPS/FEDEX who'll call you when the package has arrived. Keep this in mind when considering shipping times, especially when ordering from China/Asia in general, if you live in the States or the EU.

    You can often find the original R4 hardware for a few bucks because it's old and cheap.

    A big thanks to all your advise guys. I have decided to go with R4 3D Upgrade Revolution from lightake. I have 1 last question. The R4 lightake sells are they authentic or just clones??

    That's a clone.

    Why did you get that?

    Nobody told you to get that one, because it's a clone.

    Please don't buy that card! Buy a good clone, like the R4iDSN
