    Just get it from a reputable retailer with a good return policy. I'm sure if the g6 is bad the problem crops up sooner than later.

    Have it since ~3 months, not a problem, perfect gba and ds compatibility, patches come very fast.

    No single problem here with G6Lite.

    never had a problem, i couldnt get some GBC roms to save properly but I don't blame g6. actually i got them to work on my EFA so maybe I do. But it's not an important feature for me so I don't care. G6 is awesome otherwise, but I wish they would release the tony hawk update already so I can start playing it.

    Never got any errors too for 1 year now.

    My problems is with the Linker program (Udisk manager), but it's only with my PC, it's working on another one.
    All is working very well except when I updated to 4.6a, some saves are displayed as corrupted, maybe I didn't back them up well.

    well the card itself is good, and there are many updates when new games are released.
