    Is the G6 or the Cyclo DS better? Besides the fact about the memory being unable to be changed. Here are some things to consider.

    1. G6 has editable cheatcode lists.

    2. G6 is a lot cheaper.

    3. Cyclo has SDHC which allows a lot of memory.

    4. Casual gamers like me don't use a lot of memory. We don't even usually listen to music or watch movies.

    But basically number 2 is the best thing for me.

    judging from your list i would go with the g6

    but i would say, as a real casual gamer consider the DSTT.

    The G6 can't have SDHC support, since it has no SD slot. It's an internal memory cart.

    ah i got them mixed up, it's the m3 real which has removable memory not the G6 real.

    i thought you said you are a casual gamer, therefore the limited memory space of the G6 real should not be a problem.

    DSTT loads fast... and it's good for a casual gamer. Maybe even an R4 if you don't mind the rare updates.

    DSTT lags a bit on menu screen, I heard. I've been browsing through a lot of sites and looking at reviews. In terms of quality for cost, which is the best flash cart in the industry?

    DSTT works wonders,
    in terms of lag, I have barely seen any ( iv'e got 8GB SDHC, with about 125 commercial games on it , 4.3GB (+700MB music, homebrews and saves) filled and when i get to a part with alot of big games, like 3 100MB games and a couple of 60MB games in a row, it may lag a BIT while i scroll thru them, but nothing major)
    it scrolls thru the menu without any problem, loads fast, and haven't encountred any games that doesn't work.
    also, the card is new, and till now, the team have supported it well, it remains to see how they will continue the support, but so far, good support.

    Which would you recommend the best if I didn't want to spend a LOT of money, but good quality.

    CycloDS or the Acekard RPG

    The DSTT loads extremely fast and it doesn't lag as much in-game.

    Depends on what you mean by quality, if by hardware quality you mean, then I recommend AceKard RPG as it has dual memory and a very sturdy build and a significantly lower DOA rate than the cyclo. If by quality you mean software then I am pretty sure anyone will tell you that cyclo has the most features and experiences the royalty of flash cart features. However, the AK is open source so theoretically every feature and more of the cyclo can eventually become the AK's.

    Hardware=AK
    Software=Cyclo

    Agreed 100%

    The AceKard R.P.G. brings the best of both worlds, the internal memory, and the expandable memory.

    But the AK isn't that good. I actually think it sucks a lot.

    - Extra features are lacking in number and performance
    - No multimedia support out of the box
    - Slow-down in some games on slower micro SD cards
    - Touch control is not perfect
    - Currently only available in black

    These are the cons.

    The 3rd and 4th ones concern me the most seeing how if I want to play something, I don't want it to slow down. I also kind of like don't really like the USB connecting thing. The G6 is like exterior connections. The AceKard however, has the USB inside the actual kart.

    These are my ratings.

    1. G6/Cyclos [​IMG]
    2. DSTT [​IMG]
    3. R4 [​IMG]
    4. M3 Real [​IMG]
    5. Acekard [​IMG]

    Yeah, These are pretty outrageous right?

    Lol... How are you even able to afford all these carts and why would you buy all these different carts besides the use of reviewing all of them. I'm only 14 so I might not understand all that complicated stuff.

    BTW Why would anyone get an Acekard... The feature that I hate the most is the fact that it has that the USB is inside the actual cart. Why would you even need that there if there is actually a slot where you can put a Micro SD in it. [​IMG]"

    P.S. Where did you get all your carts?

    1) They're not expensive. I spend more money on beer/hard alcohol every week.
    2) I have them all cause I can, I don't really have a purpose. Well, other than to try to figure out how they designed it (never gonna open my CycloDS though, unless it breaks)
    3) How else would you put stuff onto the NAND Memory? Also, it'll save me a lot of time, so I don't have to ruin my MicroSD by moving it in and out all the time.
    4) I got them from various sites: RHS, DX, Gameyeeeah etc.

    1. G6 Cyclo DS
    2. DSTT
    3. M3 Real
    4. AceKard RPG
    5. R4DS/M3DS Simply

    That's the priority order, IMO.
