    I know that there is already one topic, but its four years old [​IMG]

    I'm thinking to buy a EZ Flash III or IV. I only want to use it for GBA Roms. I heard that the III has RTC, and the IV not. This is one con for IV in my sight. Anyone can write down more pros and cons or even a better gba flashcard if there is one [​IMG] Thanks for any help [​IMG]

    The M3 Perfect is a better flashcard, but it's also three times more expensive [​IMG]
    Here's one: The EZF 4 uses miniSD cards, that's a plus for me because it's simpler and faster to transfer games and saves to and from the card.

    It's the size of a regular GBA cartridge. It won't stick out. Thing is, a) it's impossible to find, and b) it's around $80. I'd get the EZF4 if I were you.

    I didn't know they were still selling the EZ Flash III, I heard it got out of production long ago.

    Is there an online store which still sells them, then? I might be interested in one.

    The III has RTS and you can use compressed files. You can use cheats same as IV. III is nice if you can find one.

    You can only get the EZ-Flash III second hand from another user. There are no shops that sells new EZ-Flash IIIs. As Pliskron said, "...if you can find one."

    They sell the pro version even though it is listed as the perfect. They are notorious for selling the wrong version.

    The M3 slot2 perfect and pro flashcarts are no longer made. The last shop to sell M3 perfects was ishopvideogames and they ran out about almost 2 year ago. The only way your getting a M3 perfect is currently from another user at the moment. You will have to put a WTB post in the trading section and specify if you want a CF/SD/microSD version of it. All restrictions apply there.

    The reallity everyone wants to not accept is that no flashcart with RTC has been available for almost 3 years (since 2007). It is already hard pressed to even find any shop that sells pure gba based flashcarts.
