    I have a simple question:

    What can a GBA Expansion Pak do that RAM Pak doesn't except GBA Games compatibility?

    The only difference really it is the GBA gaming compatibility with the GBA Expansion.

    I heard that the RAM pak has enough ram to cater for the web browser, but fails on some homebrew like Quake 2 DS.

    I've had my GBA cart for about 2 weeks now, i'm pretty happy that i got it over the rumble RAM pack.

    I don't play my GBA games much, but at least i have the RAM there and ready for anything that needs it. To be honest i'm not that concerned about the rumble feature, hell, i haven't even tried mine!!!

    it only has 8 MB of RAM, the GBA Expansion has 32 MB. It does not matter for the official browser, but it is a significant difference for RAM-enabled homebrew.

    I had the rumble ram for about a month and it started to fail and crash the browser and it would vibrate insanely at time so I bought a ez 3 in 1 works perfect had it for 2 months still going strong
