    My R4 isn't cutting it anymore and it's lack of support for SDHC micro SD cards is the breaking point. I checked the online shops that was recommended by GBAtemp but is there any that is based in the UK that has a good service?

    That's a good one but you can get stuff cheaper from www.dealextreme.com also the fact DX does free shipping at it will only take you 1-2 weeks max.

    If you dont want to look at DX theres klickstore and model gadget, their the same company i believe and there's dealsniper. They all have some form of paid shipping. klickstore and modelgadget will sometimes offer free shipping.

    Id still reccommend DX, I'm from the UK aswell.

    Its okay, but I would recommend a Acekard 2 or CycloDS Evolution, then while you are at it get a EZ Flash 3 in 1.

    Had many hassles with my Wii after ordering from them. They ended up replacing.

    My better half's M3 Simply is on the way out, so I thought I'd get her an Edge as an early Valentine's prezzie. I unfortunately ordered it from Model Gadget, who haven't sent it (despite them telling me that it was shipped on the 20th January) and are ignoring all attempts at contact, even my request for a refund. Although a long shot, I've got in touch with World Pay to see what they can do, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Sure as hell won't be ordering from them again and advise others against it as well.

    fast but .....

    ouch £19 for a TTDS from Deal Extreme that would buy you 4 TTDS cards!

    and £20 for an AK2.1 at Deal Extreme you could of got 2 and still have change left over!

    speed of delivery isn't always the best idea in the world [​IMG]

    If you are getting CycloDS - I suggest www.consoleup.com. Bit pricy but very fast service.

    EDIT: www.buy4ds.co.uk - I checked and it's closed?

    Yes but piece of mind is, I've had a few problems with Deal Extreme giving me stuff that doesn't work.

    My last dealings with www.consoleup.com were terrible, tried to order a M3Real from them, they stated it was in stock, ordered paid for, but not even an email to explain why 7 days later the card still had not arrived, copious emails not anything in reply, eventually asked for my money back, took over three weeks to sort out in the end...

    Warning this company are obviously HIT and MISS
