    This could have probably gone in the other thread but what the hey.

    Here is a quote from a post by Windirt (the EZTeam rep on the US forums: http://www.sosuke.com/ezflash/viewtopic.php?t=3117 ), inbetween the marketing speak there seems to be some interesting info. Personally I still believe slot 1 is not necessarily the way forward but to each their own I guess.

    Players have been using GBA cards to play NDS games for a long time. From
    CF card to microSD card, it seems there are plenty of choices
    available. But virtually they are all based on an immature technology and they are only a compromise solution. Not only the flashing your DS to gain booting support, but also frequent software upgrades are needed to mend the ROM for supporting new
    games. Those are nightmare to players who just want to focus on games and
    all of these inconvenience are caused by the imperfect technology.

    The nightmare is becoming history now. "Flashme, Passme,
    Convert" will fade away from player's life. Because a real mature
    SLOT-1 solution is provide by EZTEAM. EZ-FLASH V, a product using the mature SLOT-1
    technology, no need "Flashme, Passme,Convert" anymore.
    You can focus on playing game without worrying anything. More than that,
    EZ-FLASH V's multimedia function provides more choices for players.

    EZ-FLASH V is the output of EZTEAM's experience from GBA era. EZTEAM never give
    up to technology difficulties in the 4 years. Highly secured quality
    assurance, active improvements on defects, respect to the user's
    opinions-all these efforts aim one goal: to satisfied the players. Only by
    doing this can the EZ brand survive.

    EZ-FLASH V features


    * 1:1 original card size?side loading.

    * Using MicroSD(Trans Flash) as external storage. cheap and variety usage.

    * Direct boot, no need another boot card or flash your DS. EZ5 also can be used as bootcard.

    * Moonshell integrated bootloader, direct watch DPG movie, listen MP3, read TXT book in loader.

    * Bootloader can be full customized. included skin and function. bootloader sourcecode almost full opened.

    * Dual read mode: CLEAN and HYBRID. CLEAN means just drag the rom to card and play. HYBRID means EZ5 supporting the modified rom for further function, include softreset and cheat. it also provides improved compatiblity, such as boost the readspeed. no lag can be feeled even you have a low speed microsd card.

    * Perfect FAT system support, automatic generate saver file. multi saver function available.

    * Using hardware flashchip saver. never lose your save.

    * Loader upgradable

    * Homebrew support, IO lib will release on launch.

    It's getting hard trying to play the "I will wait for a review" game [​IMG] Every team is now announcing their cards, but the M3 and SC news are nowhere to be seen. Perhaps they don't think of entering the slot-1 bandwagon?
    I do hope that at the end, only the few quality products of these will stay, somewhat like the SC/M3/EZ on the GBA scene.
    BTW, how many slot-1 cards announced so far? [​IMG]

    It seems this device is the best slot-1 solution so far.
    Just waiting for the price for this!

    I think we need to know compatability before deciding properly.

    considering previous ez products, this one will probably be cheap, probably a bit more than the compact but a bit less then the deluxe.

    The open-source bootloader sounds interesting. One thing that's frustrated me about previous flashcarts is the niggly little problems in the loader. If we are not reliant on the original manufacturer to update it, that is excellent.

    I hope it supports download play to non-flashed DSs.

    Finally, a retailer actually listed the price of the cart.



    At 49.99


    I think winsunx is not going to be the cheapest retailor in the slot 1 market. Their supercard is $53 while at bamboo its $42. EZ5 is probably going to be cheaper at bamboo, so I recommend to wait for the best overall price.
