Hey all - I thought I would briefly share my experience with my new AK2i thus far. First off, I ordered the AK2i from modchipcentral, and I used Overnight Shipping. I never ordered from Canada before, so I was pretty oblivious as to what "overnight" really means. It took 6 days to get here. This is mainly due to modchipcentral taking more than a day to ship, and last Friday was a Canadian holiday. It was pretty annoying to say the least. The AK2i has the gold sticker on the front of it. It was not in the plastic packaging as shown in the website picture - but it came in a little plastic cartridge case. They also provided an old AK2 cardboard sleeve for instructions and a USB/micro SD card reader. When loading the micro SDHC card into it - I found that the famous "click" you are supposed to hear is not really noticeable, and the seating of the card does not seem perfect. I really do not feel the spring-load against the micro card, and it doesn't really snap out when you want it. Nonetheless, it still works. I am currently using a class-6, 16 GB Transcend Micro SDHC card with the AK2i. I ordered it off Amazon. I could not find it listed anywhere else, and there were not many Amazon reviews on it - so I was skeptical. Anyways, I used the Panasonic formatter and I put AKAIOS 1.4.1 proper on it. I have yet to test the real speed of the SDHC card using software, though. It took about 90 seconds to put about 15 DS roms on it, though. Anyways, I loaded a custom skin for AKAIOS and I put all of my vintage emulators and ROMS on. All classic gaming is going good so far (SNES, NES, GB, Genesis, ColecoVision, and many more!) - with the exception of some ROM compatibility issues that everyone has. Many DS roms are running smoothly, too. I haven't tried the "Castlevania test" yet, but most are running flawlessly. It may be a little premature, but as of now the Transcend 16 gb is proving to be awesome. I will post in the future if I start noticing any problems. I have only had the AK2i for a couple of hours, but the initial response is great. Thanks to everyone who has helped me with all my newbie questions for setting this thing up. I am definitely more educated with all of this now!
