I am trying to decide which cart to buy. I am flipping between the R4 and Cyclo. From some of the posts it seems that the CycloDS has some reliability issues. What I like is that it can accept > 4GB SD and the HD type too. How did you decide on buying a CycloDS? Do you see any issues with it.
The latest batch of CycloDS (black version) is an improved version compared to the white in terms of reliability so the defect problem is pretty much fixed. The only issue is the possibility that your microSD card might not fit properly in the slot, could stick out a millimetre or two
If you can do without some of the features CyloDS has, though it would be a step back with software and whatnot and don't want to spend as much money, then go for an R4. I can't really provide much opinion on the R4 since I have the Cyclo myself
Since people seem to be entirely incapable of helping themselves, let me give you a DIRECT link to the official FAQ forum. Don't worry too much as even people who actually visit the official forums are also entirely incapable of finding this clearly marked and labelled forum.
