    Acekard 2i is cheap, like 12 bucks nowadays, and runs all the roms I've tried flawlessly.

    with akAIO, the devs always update, great UI.

    I have no complaints.

    Acekard 2i FTW.

    Presumably you are new to flashcarts, so a great beginers cart is either the Acekard 2.1 or the 1:1 R4 which will be compatible with Wood R4. There are many different R4's which you can buy, you specifically want that R4 as it's the only one which can run Wood (it's operating system). Those R4's which can't run Wood have poor compatibility and should be avoided.

    Both are very easy to use and are compatible with the recent games. The only real difference is the R4 will be limited to 2GB MicroSD cards while the Acekard 2.1 can use MicroSDHC cards upto 32GB in capacity.

    I have a beginners guide for the Acekard http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=218103

    and a beginners guide for the R4 http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=227742

    You also have the DSTWO Which has additional features such as a GBA Emulation, SNES emulation and Real Time save. But it costs a lot more.

    The R4 doesn't support memory cards over 2GB in size, whereas the Acekard 2i does.

    DSTWO is the best and most pricey cart. But given that you're getting free games for life, it's worth it.

    Okay, so you have a DS Lite.

    Options #1 - You get to play DS and GBA game for near 100% compatibility.
    $14.95 - Acekard 2i
    $20.00 - EZ-Flash 3in1

    Options #2 - You get to play DS for near 100% compatibility. GBA for 80% compatibility. You can play SNES game whereas first option you couldn't.
    $34.95 Supercard DSTwo

    You can play SNES games on the first option with the Acekard 2.1/2i.

    But they're twice as slow and incompatible.

    Well, it plays Earthbound(only graphical glitches) and some other games alright, so it still is somewhat useful.

    I reccommend the TT if you're cheap like me; it's only 5 bucks and it works very well.

    I have once heard that TTDS users love their Magic Touch Key or something like that, though I probably won't understand it unless I get a TTDS, but on the other hand, shoptemp sells WoodR4 compatible R4's for $6 that is very good and YWG seems to be pretty on top of releases.

    I have a DSTT, I have no idea what that magic touch key thing is you're talking about. The only thing remotely close to that I can think of is hot-key soft reset?

    I personnaly use a acekard 2.1 with AKAIO

    I am however saving up to get a supercard ds2

    If you have the money SCDS2
    If you are a little low on cash Acekard 2i
