    There are probably a total of 15 people on this board who actually own one right now.

    Therefore, no.

    Well I guess we should do another poll on how many people actually own an EDGE.

    I would rather not have a forum for the EDGE as it is a cheap knock-off of the Evolution.

    Nah, I dont think it needs one.
    There was no OS update up to now, the team hasnt updated their site about resellers etc.
    Lets wait and see what happens.
    I personally think Edge wont go any further than it already is.

    If the EDGE team is smart, they should bring more and more updates. Cause then i trully belief that they could be a big one in the flashcards market [​IMG]

    I voted Yes. It will get its section soon. We got our 3 Edge from dealextreme delivered right after lunar new year, ever since our R4 have taken a back seat. I still use the R4 Commander except now with EDGE and 4gb mico sd [​IMG] .

    I use this as the R4 replacement and very happy about it.

    Never had one come back that didnt work, mostly because of the no-spring design.

    I love my EDGE. Of the R4, EZV, and G6DS (slot-1 carts I've owned), it is definitely my favorite. I'm surprised more people don't own one. It is definitely one of the best carts.

    Cause it's a clone of the CycloDS Evo, which is the best original cart on the market.

    The EDGE is in no way a clone to the CycloDS. It's a rip off, but not a clone. The only similarities I see in the OS are the aesthetics (skinning and stuff). Other than that, the EDGE is very different.

    Edge does seem to have potential, Cyclo knockoff or not. I vote yes.

    I don't think it's a clone. All I think that they did was copy the GUI and the skinning format as Evolution skins apparently work with the Edge.

    Evolution cheat files are apparently incompatible with the Edge.
    The Edge had no realtime save capability
    The Edge supports a different set of languages (may support same or more now)
    etc.

    So, it looks like the most that they ripped off from TC is the GUI, which really is no big deal unless they plan on carefully marketing it in such a fashion that the unwary may mistake it for an Evolution, initially...

    I expect that I'll eventually pick up one of these or the R4 w/SDHC as a 3rd backup slot-1 cart at some point, but I'm still waiting to see how things shake out amongst all of the newer carts, as Neoflash have also released another slot-1 cart with integrated motion sensors and a useless blue LED, along with the DSTT, and whatever else pops up in the next few months. We appear to be having a rash of "new" SDHC slot-1 carts showing up ATM...

    I wouldn't say the best, but I'll say it's the best low budget cart.

    Since EDGE > DSTT, and DSTT has its own forum, i see no point in not making another for it.
    Aside from the fact EDGE Team didn't gave away some free Flashcards for the board's members :-) :-) :-)
