    Hi everyone, I am planning to import quite a few DSTT's to sell them online. I just need you guys to help me with some simple questions so I can see if it is worth while buying the DSTT's.

    1. Do you like your DSTT?
    2. Do you have 1gb or 2gb MicroSD?
    3. What do you think are cons about the DSTT?
    4. Would you buy a DSTT + 2gb for $60 (that is being shipped out of Canada)?
    5. Do you think that is good deal or should it be more cheaper/expensive?

    Thanks for your help in advanced.

    1. Do you like your DSTT?
    Yes, very much so.

    2. Do you have 1gb or 2gb MicroSD?
    Neither, I got a 4gb [​IMG].

    3. What do you think are cons about the DSTT?
    -No automatic alphabetical sorting, but Drivesort.exe can easily solve that problem
    -I've noticed that multiplayer doesn't work for some games (maybe that's just me)

    4. Would you buy a DSTT + 2gb for $60?
    Yes, however I bought my DSTT+4gb for $90

    5. Do you think that is good deal or should it be more cheaper/expensive?
    I think it's well worth the money, reasonably priced.

    1. Do you like your DSTT?
    Yes love it.

    2. Do you have 1gb or 2gb MicroSD?
    Got a 2gig Sandisk

    3. What do you think are cons about the DSTT?
    Slow Menu(YS Faster), Problem loading at times.

    4. Would you buy a DSTT + 2gb for $60?
    No, got DSTT for $29 and my 2gig for $1.36.

    5. Do you think that is good deal or should it be more cheaper/expensive?
    If your making good profit then its good for you. but I got my Sandisk off ebay for 1.36 with a total of 11 bucks. You can get 1gig cards for 9.99-12.99 and 2 gigs. 15.99+. So 60 isnt bad, 50 is better but smart shoppers can walk out paying 40.

    1. Yes.
    2. 2GB Kingston Japan
    3. Quality control, but more on that below *. Also, no menu sorting, but there is an easier method than drivesort that sorts them very quickly (20 secs). Some have complained that the menu scrolls too slowly, but I don't have a problem.
    4. No. leetmod.com has a DSTT and 2GB Kingston Japanese for $50.
    5. It should be cheaper than $60. Dealextreme has them for $31. You can get a 2GB card for around $12 or $13.

    You should have asked what we think the pros are. The pros are that it's easy to use, it's fast loading the menu and launching games (one of the fastest carts), and it works very well! Also, there is a homebrew menu YSMenu available that sorts roms and has lots of other nifty features.

    * If you're a seller, do your customers a favor and make sure you test them out before shipping them. Some of them don't make proper contact with the NDS.

    Alright. Thanks for your help so far. I also always test each R4 before I sell it.

    1. Do you like your DSTT?

    I think it is a fine choice for a budget slot 1 card and I like my two very much.

    2. Do you have 1gb or 2gb MicroSD?

    I have a 4GB Kingston Class 4 card in one and a Patriot 2GB card in the other...

    3. What do you think are cons about the DSTT?

    Cons? I think they should implement some sort of sorting options in the official firmware. No RTS support (looks like that is something more teams are starting to figure out...even in cheaper cards). Occasional quality issues (I had to exchange one of my cards...but the new one is great).

    4. Would you buy a DSTT + 2gb for $60?

    I doubt it...I prefer to buy my items in separate transactions...makes it easier for the consumer to compare value.

    5. Do you think that is good deal or should it be more cheaper/expensive?

    It sounds like an OK deal...I wouldn't think that you would be trying to take anyone to the cleaners at that price.

    1. Do you like your DSTT?
    Yep. I love it.

    2. Do you have 1gb or 2gb MicroSD?
    2gb kingston (taiwan)

    3. What do you think are cons about the DSTT?
    No alphabetical sorting, Drivesort can get a little annoying
    Also, it has weird compatibility with patched games and requires an extra step to play.

    4. Would you buy a DSTT + 2gb for $60?
    If I couldn't find a better deal, yes, that's a reasonable price.

    5. Do you think that is good deal or should it be more cheaper/expensive?
    That price seems to be the retail values of both, and I'm sure there are cheaper prices out there. Otherwise, its not too expensive...

    1. Do you like your DSTT?
    Yessir. Im using it more than my other Flashcarts

    2. Do you have 1gb or 2gb MicroSD?
    1gig. Holds a ton of cap still

    3. What do you think are cons about the DSTT?
    I really hate how the game hangs when loading for about 3 seconds when it's at 90-ish%.
    The Alphabetical sorting is no problem because of the YSmenu and a good skin

    4. Would you buy a DSTT + 2gb for $60?
    Yep I would.

    5. Do you think that is good deal or should it be more cheaper/expensive?
    I have no idea to be honest. I got mine for free : D. I think it's a good deal. iono

    1. Yeah, I like it.
    2. I have a 2 gig mSD
    3. There have been some quality issues, no folder navigation, freezes every now and then.
    4. I would definitely buy one for your offered price. I paid $75 for what your offering.
    5. I think it's a fair deal.

    1. Do you like your DSTT?

    So far so good for the NDS. Bought mine April 4 mind you.

    2. Do you have 1gb or 2gb MicroSD?
    sandisk 4 gig SDHC

    3. What do you think are cons about the DSTT?
    not much... could use more instructional material.. but the guy at the store basically told me how to use it..

    4. Would you buy a DSTT + 2gb for $60 (that is being shipped out of Canada)?
    i bought the TT for $65CAN in Canada (Pacific Mall if you heard of it) and paid $40 for the 4 gigger

    5. Do you think that is good deal or should it be more cheaper/expensive?
    The price is reasonable. It cant be too cheap or too expensive. To be honest i was expecting 100 to 150 on the cart alone.. i say the price point I paid for the cart alone is good for MSRP. The only thing thats missing is support and support materials.

    1. Do you like your DSTT?
    yes.

    2. Do you have 1gb or 2gb MicroSD?
    2 gb microsd. i think 1 gb is bare minimum because some games now are now 100 mb

    3. What do you think are cons about the DSTT?
    spring slot, relatively higher chance of DOA

    4. Would you buy a DSTT + 2gb for $60 (that is being shipped out of Canada)?
    leetmod.ca ships out within the next day for $53.XX (bought from them 1 week ago). immediate pick up is preferred if you are going with that price. and if you gurantee that it would work, it would be even better

    5. Do you think that is good deal or should it be more cheaper/expensive?
    cheaper because I can get it from leetmod for cheaper, and because they are a company I can return defective products. as well, they ship things FAST.
