    (You know, it's really hard to think up of fresh adjectives every day...)

    On the 13th April, shaunj66 posted a mass of information about the G6DS Real, then the sample was received, and then the review was posted. Here's the conclusion, to give you a general idea of how the cart performs:

    Not so distant future
    I had a lot of expectations but wasnt impressed in the end. I still prefer the R4DS

    Recently sold my 1GB G6Real on WTS forum.
    It's a good card but the fact it would randomly corrupt and lose all my saves as well as the whole friggin file.sys, requiring a format before another use, put's it in the 'It's decent' vote for me.
    Like the great amptor once said: 'never trust cheap ass chinese flash memory'.. wiser words are rarely spoken here [​IMG]

    I voted it decent.
    It's quite pricy, while you only get a limited amount of storage space.
    The speedy NAND inside allows for great NDS gaming, so props for that! [​IMG]

    It can't really compete with the Flashcarts we have now; CycloDS/AKRPG/M3DS Real
    So that's why it's decent. [​IMG]

    I was to buy an exclusively internal memory based flash cart (and I might yet), it would be the G6 Real.
    The only real competition is the N-Card, and it's clones.

    I bought one in June, and was quite impressed, but what drags it down is the limited Download play and as Thug said, it sometimes corrupts..
    I bought the 1GB version, and that isn't enough for me atleast, so I'll buy another cart soon.
    Voted Decent.

    the word favorite gives it away... if it was more like excellent then it would get my vote.
    It's nice but there are better FCs than this one

    I have one, and it was good for a while.

    In the end, the thing that turned me down the most was strange homebrew problems kinda sluggish UI, and slow copying speeds.

    You're right... 'Favourite' isn't really the right word to use. I've changed it (probably too late, but never mind) [​IMG]

    Currently in Chicagoooooooo
    I've had mine for quite a while and it never corrupts....works with every game I throw at it....Wii connectivity....and it uses internal memory so I don't need to worry about if my TF card is a "good one".

    The cons I have are that I have to JAM the card in the reader if not then sometimes my PC doesn't pick up the kit properly. Thats about it.

    I will still be picking up a M3 Real soon as the 1 gig is not enough but that doesn't mean I don't love my G6Real

    Well since the G6 is practically the M3DS Real without built-in storage, and I have a M3R, this thing is great. It has everything you need [​IMG]
