Yes, I have used a TinyURL link on the clickable image, but only because the URL is too long...

The SuperCard Team have been around for ages. They started with a Compact Flash cart that could only play GBA games, then eventually added NDS support to it. Since then, they have released a cart that uses SD cards, a MiniSD version, and most recently in their slot-2 range, SuperCard Lite. Then they took released a version with no GBA support but could rumble like the official Rumble Packs.
But SuperCards have always been the cheap option, and unfortunately SuperCard's GBA support is fairly bad. This is because it uses slow memory, which makes the games lag, but their NDS support is extremely good, their software is stable and fairly fast, and best of all: They're still supporting all their carts, right back to the SuperCard Compact Flash (version 2)!

What do you think?

I personally voted that they're great, because my very first flashcart was a SuperCard Lite and I loved it. I barely ever used GBA, and the NDS support was excellent. It did everything I wanted (and expected) at the time, and it was fairly easy to use.

I went with decent.
Even though compared to other cards and teams, SC lack quite a bit, I had a SC Lite and it ran Castlevania PoR USA gr8 with a Sandisk mem card when nothing else would at the time

The Supercard Mini SD was the first ever flashcart I got. Good times... good times...

On topic: I voted great since their NDS compatibility was near perfect and I use VBA for GBA emulation. Also, their homebrew compatibility is perfect (on my experience at least) with a reliable team bringing features like cheats, real time game guide and other fun stuff.

Decent. They're pretty good for NDS support, very cheap, but GBA support sucks. Build quality isn't all that great, and the menu's are downright ugly. The Rumble series were even cheaper, but the rumblyness only worked for one game the made a patch for (Metroid Prime Pinball) xD

You beat me, that was exactly what I wanted to post. I went with Decent, obviously. The SuperCard miniSD (the purple-cased one with Mr. Fett) was my first flashcart ever. Now, my sister uses it for her Phat and is quite happy with it. Me? I'm happy with my Simply + 3in1

Voted decent. Still got a soft spot for them and they were a solid slot-2 card. Obviously the technology has been surpassed now, but kudos for still supporting them when the money's being made from their slot one efforts nowadays.

They were my first two carts in 2005. I really like them, but I think the rumble versions are shit.

Most popular GBA games work on the Supercard, and thats good enough for me.

I voted "decent". The slowdown in GBA games was disappointing, though you can still play most of the games.

My Supercard SD has never failed me in its purpose to serve as my slot-2 RAM expansion, and my Reinmoon save backup/restorer for my Pokemon cartridge. It's a decent card, plays all the GBA games I want it to play.
