    So one of the guides says that the G6 may stop working over time, or has been shown to become slowly corrupted until saves are unusable.

    In your experience, you meaning anyone reading this post, is this corruption something that's avoidable with careful use (i.e. always clicking on "remove hardware"; treating cart and burner carefully) ....or does it just happen out of the blue, one day, for no reason, boom, corrupted saves?

    Thanks.

    My G6 is also not good, with some games it does not save, like brain age (eur) and mario vs donkey kong 2 and some others, i don't know if this is a hardware flaw or if i overlooked something, the battery should be good since other games do save well.

    No problems here with G6L Chinese after a few months. In which guide did you read that it "becomes slowly corrupted..."? Hm, I think I read this sentence before... [​IMG]

    Have had my G6 Lite since early July and have had no problems. I think it's hit or miss.

    Oh FifthE1ement's buyer's guide..

    Not to say anything but he only had a G6Lite for like a week or so which means anything he says about it is based on other's opinions which could very well be in the minority..

    it really is a hit or miss with the g6 lite, so I would make sure you purchase from a reputable vendor with a good return policy.

    I'll second, and third what outphase and uglyrose said. I've used the G6 3rd Edition, and the new G6Lite since they were both released. Never had any sort of problem with corruption, lost data, bad memory, etc.

    He borrowed it and he never said anything about it getting corrupted until seeing Weej make that topic about his G6Lite dying and decided it was a nice tidbit to add into his guide
