    hi,
    well, i have just about been persuaded to come over to the dark side and buy a DS light. but (and i apologise if this is a noobish question, because, i am a noob... heh) what is the cheapest place to buy a R4DS cart with decent (with 5 working days) shipping times within/to the UK, that actually had the darn thing in stock?

    thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    Cheapest is definitely Clickshop.com (£19.99 + buttons for delivery). Have recently acquired 2 R4's from them myself (last week) but unfortunately THEY seem to be out of stock also (must have just got in in the nick of time).

    I've used consoleup.com twice now with no problems. I paid extra for next day delivery, so i don't know what their standard carriage is like.

    Avoid nowplay.co.uk like the plague. Paypal is currently trying to get me anything more than a fake tracking number from them.

    try gameyeeeah.com
    they have it for $36(18 quid)
    and you can opt for dhl delivery within 5 days but it costs 10 quid extra gameyeeeah also ships quite fast, unlike DX

    it will take longer than 7 days to ship it and ultramagnus wants it there within 5 days and they don't have the r4 in stock and haven't had for days. [​IMG]

    Dealextreme.com's stock was in for about 2-3 days until they went out of stock again. Probably due to many of the back-orders.

    that doesn't mean a thing on this thread if the person is asking for places that have them in stock, does it? [​IMG]

    whats so stupid about gameyeeeah?
    they have great customer service and always get back to me whenever i ask questions as quick as lightning!

    it was also a trusted site of gbatemp, but i dont know what happened
    all i heard were some vague comments about competitions...
    theyr recommended on every gbatemp review!

    you could also try and get the supercard ds one
    its on sale for $34 (which is cheaper than DX!) and is also a great product from what ive heard.

    im having trouble deciding between SCDS or R4

    thanks for all your replies.

    will probably buy one from consoleup, they look like the best bet, considering everyone else with decent prices is out of stock >:(

    thanks again guys
