    Fake M3 cards are popping up all over the place now, where did you buy yours??

    Perhaps we will now have a list of suppliers to avoid

    atm DSTT is the next R4 in terms of clones
    and the fact that the fake M3 Reals are actually relabeled fake DSTT's and fake R4's with a m3 skin on it is just proof to that

    Haha, I just wrote the same thing in other thread..

    The thing is that DSTT will fight clones with all they got, but I don't thing that other clones will become as near as spread like R4 ones were!

    Just stick to the official resellers in your country.
    Atleast M3 lists them

    R4 didn't...and then expected people to avoid clones.

    I picked mine up from:

    http://www.consolesource.com/ecomm/catalog/index.html


    I got the M3DS Real + Rumble RAM Pak bundle (Also came with a 2gig MicroSD card).
    I would suggest getting the perfect bundle if you want GBA emulation tho.

    Also, I am located in Ohio (They are in canada) and it only took me 3 days to get the Flashcart. Pretty sweet shipping times (if you ask me anyway).

    Luckily I got my M3 Real from dealextreme before the fakes came out. A clone M3 Real would be horrible, it definitely would not have the same features as the genuine one. I'd feel bad for anyone who gets a fake.

    For once I was actually on the ball and got mine nice and early.


    Plus anyone that would sell a fake is a dirty pee hole.

    actually on m3team website is clearly on news page
    http://www.m3adapter.com/News_Events.htm
    i thinks fake m3 real are dstt cards with a moded loader.
    My supplier in china told that cost about 15$ , real M3 cost more than 20-25$, so if any shop sell m3 at less than 20$ surely is fake

    to tell if you have the right m3 you have to look at the website located on the sticker on your m3, making sure it says www.m3adapter.com
