Why is the CycloDS still so pricey? It's $10 higher than the Supercard DSTwo which is so much better. So why is it still high when it has almost the same features as the Acekard and DSOnei?

It's pricey because Team Cyclops doesn't sell cheap.

How it works is:
Team Cyclops sells the carts.
ShopTemp buys the carts.
ShopTemp sells the carts to make a profit.

In order to make a profit, ShopTemp needs to sell the carts for a bit more than Team Cyclops does. And because Team Cyclops won't lower its prices, ShopTemp can't lower theirs.

Sir-Fritz has it correct. You get what you pay for, and in this case you get a sturdy flash cart that feels like a normal DS cartridge, not some flimsy thing that feels like it can break at any second. Plus, Team Cyclops requires more income to support themselves as they are based in Europe, where the standard of living is higher than most Asian countries.

Last, the CycloDS still comes with a decent MicroSD/USB adapter, whereas the cheaper flash carts stopped including those.

It's pricey because your paying for a quality cart that is sturdy, has a good support team, and it has working "extra" features.

    Here's another video fog isn't being displayed properly on several games. Nintendo life also reported this. Water Temple in oot water reflection isn't emulated properly either the whole point of the gimmick of that room. Graphical glitches and poor emulation shouldn't be present at $30 bucks

    You can't save ghost data either in Mario Kart 64. Wasn't an issue on VC for Wii and Wii U.

    Even if they fix these issues I'm still not buying it. $30 for drip fed n64 games is fucking retarded. Their online service is still shit.

    also costing only $20 kinda excuses the poor online services a little bit, $50 demands better quality online
