    How about this on Dealextreme.

    DSTT Advanced with Live Brightness Control, it has to be cool.

    Also has great-looking USB adapter

    It's been confirmed by the DSTT team that this is a clone/fake.

    Funnily enough, I'm not surprised.

    Where can I find the DSTT team statement? The only thing I can find on their website is the old 'spot the fakes' page with the images of fakes removed.

    Shame, I like the idea of the sideways-facing Micro-sd slot.

    It might still be worth having for the novelty value, just remember it's a clone is all. From what I know they've also updated the firmware to their own verson, there's a thread here somewhere about it. It's supposed to be pretty nice with some additional features.

    Really, a DSTT clone cart isn't really a bad thing. The good thing about them is also the bad: the original team is still releasing updates. Thus, even though your clone will get regular updates and maybe even new features, but for every clone you buy it's money that should've gone to the original DSTT team.

    Last 2 real dstt i got 'white screened of death' on me within a week :/ only boots in 1 in about 50 attemps, otherwise just white screen wether mem card is in or not, but works perfect in that 1 time it boots.

    Might get these instead in future.

    It's all good until Team DSTT decides to release their fake-killer firmware and you destroy your flash cart and microSD card.

    I agree, I've got a DSTT that never gets used. I'm not even sure that the DSTT Advance firmware does sorting, it's just got some other stuff in it like setting the clock and stuff. I'm not suggesting people go out and buy it, I just said it might be worth owning for the novelty value alone because BanjoMike liked the idea of the sideways facing MSD slot.

    it could be worth the buy if you want the extra features and the black colour.

    the micro sd reader looks cooler too.


    just can't update DSTT firmware once fake killer comes out (or if it comes out).

    Again, what extra features does this flash cart offer you that another flash cart wouldn't? The Acekard 2 is about the same price as the real DSTT (which is cheaper than this clone), so why would anyone bother with a clone which is not only going to cost you more money for far fewer features and a menu that lags and doesn't sort your games, but might get bricked by a future firmware upgrade?
