    I'm using the thingy of the 'ask questions about what cart to buy' topic:

    Any flashcarts you are looking at in particular M3 real (combined with M3 sakura firmware) and CycloDS
    Use? Games, music
    Price Range? See below
    Slot 1/2? 1 of course
    Built in or expandable memory? they both have expandable memory
    Special features? See below

    Other?
    Since my old card broke, I'm looking for a new one
    I already know where to buy it so thats not the problem, but I have another problem.
    See, in the store I will get the flashcart, The M3 real (rumble pack) is €10 cheaper than the CycloDS. So I was wondering, what does the cycloDS have more than the M3?
    Afaik, the M3 now has RTS too (even 2 slots I think) and I don't even need RTG (real time guide). are there any other things that the cyclo has that the M3 hasn't?

    It would be good if the cart had an easy gui with good speeds and native music support, so thats why I'm interested in the M3 sakura firmware. Is this firmware updated a lot? I don't wanna buy a cart if it doesn't have the good firmware.

    Still, my main question is: Should I get the M3 real with sakura and use the €10 for a larger µSD card (which is good for the music) or should I still choose for the CycloDS?

    I would still get the M3, although if you have the DSi, neither will work.

    Go for the M3Real with Sakura. Sakura is great, the best GUI I've seen on a flashcart.
    If you wanted a flashcart purely for games, the CycloDS would have been the best choice, because of it's great team and features.
    But if you want games and native music support, go for Sakura.
