    Acekard - cheaper, faster game fixes (with AKAIO)

    CycloDS - more expensive, extra functions (RTS, ingame text reader)

    Well if you have a dsi, you have to pick ak2i. If you care about real time save, get cyclo ds. If you don't care about real time save, get acekard.

    EDIT: Sorry about the 5 posts in a row, my computer's stupid.

    Both are pretty awesome! But if I had to choose one it'd be the CycloDS Evolution.

    I've not used an Acekard, but it sounds like a good DSi cart...though I'd have to go with CycloDS too. I have the money to spend, and it has great official support.

    What abt latest games compatibility? I see cyclods seldom update their firmware but akaio does, or at least ak update more often.

    wat? How can you prefer both, to prefer is the term to like something over something else, what you said just defeats the point.
