    This is an email they sent me. First off let me say buying these types of products are always risky. I know of many people who got the old bait and switch scam, Anyway

    "Hi, Thank you for contacting us about your issue with the R4. We can replace the unit with either a Edge card or an AceKard 2 b/c we no longer carry the R4ds b/c there are too many clones on the market and we are afraid to purchase and resell a non supported product. Please let us know which card you would like to exchange your defective card for or we can always fully refund you for the purchase if you you return the defective product back to our company. If you are returning the item back to us please ship it addressed to: Blah Blah Address- Please include a note with your Name, Address, Amazon Order ID Number and brief description on how you would like your return to be handled.

    Thank You & Best Wishes,

    Digital Gaming USA Trading Inc."

    What should I do? Are either of these good. Should I just stick with my R4DS V2 upgrade which I guess is a fake or clone or whatever you call it.?

    Both the edge and Acekard 2 are good, I suggest you go with the acekard 2 though.

    If its 100% fake and sounds like it is if its an UPGRADE then as above get the Acekard2 its got good support and updates and a big user base now [​IMG]


    ...the edge is pretty much a newbie on the block so in my opinion not something to go for yet!

    I really appreciate all the info I am thinking though since the deal is done and its been a few months they may not even send me a new one if I send it back. I think Ill just get a backup from somewhere else. Ill use the fake R4 until Boom goes the Dynamite and SO the question is asked again. Which one I will order this coming wednesday when I get paid So Acekard 2 is in the lead its easy to use, good looking GUI, gives BJ's what else. Ah fuck it ill look at the other posts and reviews by this site. thanks again sweeties

    There have been some hardware problems with some Acekard 2's lately. Acekard has been working to fix the problem, but it's unclear as to whether the latest batches have fewer bad ones. It's also unclear as to whether the store you ordered from will sell you one from one of the bad batches or not.

    Mind you, the Acekard 2 is better than the Edge in my opinion, but keep in mind that if you run into a problem (it usually occurs during the first few weeks if it's going to occur) you'll need to return it for a new one. They should be aware of the problem, but you might want to confirm that they'll allow you to exchange it and that there won't be any extra shipping charges if you need to return it.

    well after doing my research all frackin day (Sci-fi Nerd) I think the best bet is the CycloDS. Its expensive which of course means its the best right? Nah but seriously it seems like the best one if not that then maybe ill stick with the Acekard2 or Ill throw my DS away. Im fat and just online ordered a pizza from pizza hut i cant wait..

    Yes, the cyclo is the best card out there and thanks for doing your research instead of simply asking.
