    There's no fake EDGE cards(yet). Flash cart prices have dropped for the past few months, just look at the DSTT and you'll see what I mean. There's nothing suspicious about the price.

    The EDGE cards from DX is all good. I bought an EDGE card, as well as a SuperCard, and I prefer the EDGE. I'm also partial to the EDGE's black color, and TF Reader.

    The other downside was shipment time. From the time DX posted "shipped" it took almost a month to receive. I also purchased a 4GB Kingston SD card, and it works flawlessly.

    Hope this helps...

    Also... The EDGE and SuperCard were both my very first attempt at flash carts, and they are both very user friendly provided you have some basic computer knowledge.

    The Supercard is the least user friendly cart on the market.

    Hmm...I didn't seem to have any issue with it. I just prefer the EDGE, and gave the SuperCard to my son.

    A fake EDGE? That'd be pretty funny considering that the EDGE is just a CycloDS rip off, essentially.

    Same here. I ordered my EDGE card from DX. It took me three and a half weeks for mines to arrive & it's well worth it. What can you expect...it's free shipping ya know?//

    I've never even heard of a fake EDGE card.

    I ordered my EDGE a few days before Christmas and it got here yesterday. Working perfectly so far.

    yep - no fake Edgies out there... (that I'm aware of)

    I purchased my Edge from DX and received it in about three weeks. It's very niiice. [​IMG] I am going to be ordering more of the same for family members in the near future - and DX dropped the price from 17 to 15 something.
