    hmm the $80 bucks one does not include the old gba dummy casing but the one with passcard does? it's important i have the gba casing, but nice prices [​IMG]

    whoah shipping is $30 0_o and even with cheapest shipping it still comes over $105.86 (£53.00) i can buy @ £50...

    I think it does, but ask them just in case.

    yep, i guess i will have to ask the $85 is too much [​IMG] with shipping. even the $79 deal is too expensive with cheapest shipping, i've just emailed them anyway as i want to know if it's in full english too.

    Dealextreme.com has the chinese G6 lite for $77.11 shipped, but it looks like it only comes with the white case and the GBA case.

    Slot 2 can do more, and they probably cost more to produce.

    i don't know why the G6 lite is expensive but the website that i will be buying from seems to be the only decent price i can get in english, i will be using the G6 lite for GBA roms only (reason for normal sized gba dummy case to fit in gba sp), i already have a R4 for DS games.

    Buy EZIV MiniSD then, it's much better with GBA (instant boot via NOR and other cool things) and much cheaper. I bought one for my GB Micro, it's outstanding.

    ok... i know it's a good flash cart and all but i'm not interested because it requires a mini SD card and it has no real time clock, i am also unable to run the EZ flash client either on my computer so i've been put off the flash cart quite a bit, but the price is attractive though.

    Pokemons can be patched. The other reasons are just excuses though. MiniSD are SO cheap nowadays, and EZ4 client is just a standard windows application, if G6 patcher runs on your machine, this one should run too. Unless you have a Mac, but then you're out of luck with G6 too.

    You can get a GBA shell (sold seperately) for the M3 lite, or a microSD to miniSD adapter for the M3 mini, either option might be cheaper than a G6 if you already have a spare microSD card.

    when i run the EZ client to see what it's all about it just gives me a error message and won't run, i have a normal PC not a mac, and i need real time clock because there are certain pokemon that can only be catched at certain times of day, G6 client runs fine on my PC no problems.

    ok so you say it's cheaper?

    EZFlash IV $64.99 (£33.12) + shipping= $93.65 (£47.73)
    MiniSD 1GB £8.99 + shipping= £10.19

    total=£57.92 o_0 cheaper than a G6 lite? hmmmm

    Be sure to look for a MiniSD version, there's also a MicroSD one (EZ4 Lite/Deluxe/Compact).

    I bought mine EZ4 MiniSD for 33 bucks (3980 yen). It may be even cheaper in other places.

    M3 lite has a terrible menu system compared to the G6 lite, i can't find any website that sells empty GBA cases either, not that i want the M3 lite with it's fugly menu.

    fugly menu shown here:
    http://www.scorpei.com/M3lite.html

    review mentioning fugly menu:
    http://www.iso420.org/nds/m3lite/index.htm

    "GBA lacks fancy loader (Like the G6)"

    EZ4 Deluxe/EZ4 Lite has no old gba case included, has very small ammount of space for gba games it's main use is for ram expansion for opera browser.

    Heh, be sure to read GBATemp's review of G6. Here's a nice quote from it:

    Shell out $87 (plus shipping) for a G6 lite then. You've ruled out all of the other options.

    BTW, to call the G6's GBA menu "fancy" is to take a shit all over that word. It works, but it's neither pretty nor elegant.

    What?! They're microSD based! You're thinking of the EZ expansion pack. EZ4 CAN NOT be used as the ram pack as of now.

    I advise you to buy the EZ4 MINI SD BASED, it's cheap and great to use in GBA, period. If you don't wanna listen, I rest my case.
