    but yes, i do recommend the cyclo (i own one) over the M3
    although the cyclo is a bit more pricey

    you might want to look into the SCDS1 or the acekard2

    Cyclo way better than m3 real [​IMG](Way better Compatibility with download play)
    Also, If you want a budget card, you can also consider Acecard II or Supercard DS One v3

    Cyclo is worth every single dollar.

    I have 3 Cyclos and would never purchase anything else. I have owned 4 different manufacturers' cards in the past, and I'm so glad I finally found the Cyclo DS Evolution.

    Between the two carts you asked about, the Evo is definitely the superior cart. But the SCDS1 is just as good as the Evo, and cheaper. So keep that one in mind too when making your decision.

    With the latest 1.4B3 firmware the CycloDS just got so amazing. That is if you own an EZFlash 3-in-1. It is better than the EZFlash V itself!

    It's 1.4B4 now. As for owning an ez flash V 3 in 1 - you can run GBA games directly through the main GUI, no more Rudolph's GBA Exploader. [​IMG]

    M3 products use to be good but they have crap support. If were you I'd look at the reviews for the carts here and then decide, my CycloDS has served me very well.

    I've got CycloDS. I used to have FireCard (N-Card clone) and tried my fiance's R4's and I can say I like my CycloDS the best.

    Very easy to update and sort. Very happy with it. And have you seen CycloDS' skins? They are awesome!

    I absolutely love Cyclo's English support forums, where the devs actually listen to feedback and communicate with their customers and let them test beta firmware etc. That alone makes it better than any dodgy Chinese card to me, and sure realtime save helps. [​IMG]

    Obviously most of the people who reply will be biased towards the cyclo since you're posting in the cyclo forum, but the cyclo really is fantastic.

    I being a non-cyclo User, recommend u to buy it as it is probably 1 or 2 on the charts (with Supercard)

    I have experience with three cards. The CycloDS Eve, the Supercard DS-One, and the DSTT. The TT is great for a small price, with few functions (very good for people that just don't want to pay for games anymore, and wont do TONS with roms or homebrew).

    The SC-DSone is great for stability and price (lots of options, runs everything well, supports folders!! and has tons of extra options). It was my first card, and now its the wife's and she LOVES it.

    The CycloDS is for hardcore users. So many functions, VERY sturdy build (of both the card, and the microSD reader, which is solid a hell!), and, major importance to me, English support... and the dev team READS THE FORUMS for troubleshooting and new ideas.

    I haven't used the M3, but i'd sure give it a shot... but if you are looking for using your card for things other than casual DS playing (i.e. lots of homebrew, game switching, major use stuff) then i'd suggest the Cyclo. Otherwise, i don't see why the M3 wouldn't do you well, for having a lower price.

    Hope that all helps out somewhat [​IMG]
