    Exact copy of R4 unable to play DoS video = EPIC FAIL.

    Lol, maybe it's an offshoot from the R4 team. But then comes the question of "why?" since the M3 is already the standard R4 clone.

    Oh boy, a clone of an outdated cart.

    That statement makes you look like someone who knows nothing about the flashcart market. You "can't wait" for a SDHC version of what is probably the worst card on the market now? Anyone who's done half a penis worth of research will come to the conclusion that pretty much all the competing carts are better choices. Adding only SDHC to the mix doesn't change anything.

    Just because ignorant people want to buy it doesn't make it a good cart.

    N5 is not related to R4 Team

    Hence, I didn't say it wouldn't do well in the market, I was inquiring about how you "can't wait" for it as you consider yourself somewhat of an authority on these devices.

    I also think R4 is still a good cart.
    It's menu maybe simple but very fast and stable.

    and it hasn't disappoint me yet.

    Thats an anti-piracy measure dear (as ironic as it may be).

    No you are not. Not going to waste my time and money testing something thats almost identical to the most mainstream cart on the market.

    Indeed. I have an R4, I love it, and I have no desire to get another card to replace it, as it serves my needs perfectly. However, if I were buying a slot-1 card today, it would not be an R4 (unless it were being sold for $15 or something).

    SDHC support is a nice feature, plus the R4's lack of menu customization simply sucks (skinnability is very limited, plus I'd like to be able to have custom buttons on the first screen for GBA Expansion software and maybe even for an emulator or two).

    Rename the GBA tools to moonshell file, and then you can get a GBA button on the top page

    Fake rip-off, if you ask me. Look at the label on the cart: That's not team M3/R4 quality.

    i thought the n5 box looks exactly like the dstt box, and im sorry, but youre simply retarted if you buy an R4 these days, and you deserve nothing more than using the old ass passme flashkit with another slot 2 device thats bigger than 3 ds' put together that hopefully only runs on 3.5 diskettes

    I hope you mean "Retarded". Because "Retarted" is something totally different.
