    Looks like it's down now (403). Didn't think switching servers would be this disruptive.

    They're having a few technical issues at the moment, we've been told its being worked on.

    EDIT: It turns out the issue isn't on ShopTemp's end, but rather the host. They're doing tests to fix a slowdown problem on the network. If all goes well the shop will be back up and faster than ever in no time.

    Well folks, it seems the issue is fixed. And to compensate for the downtimes, the ShopTemp team and GBAtemp have decided to extend the offer on $29.95 DSTWO pre-orders to more than the initial 100 for a while. It will be at cost to both sites, but neither we nor ShopTemp mind taking a hit to apologize and benefit you guys. [​IMG]

    The R4i SDHC and other R4 cards are actually quite cheap compared to other websites and the R4i SDHC is always updated, works well and is only £6.80 or something so stop de-moting( not sure if thats a real word [​IMG] ) it just lacks a few features compared to other flashcarts [​IMG] . I'll be getting a SCDS2 sometime after it comes out though. And I'm making all my future flashcart purchases from ShopTemp! [​IMG]

    Yep, they're original. Everything ShopTemp sells is. That was one of the stipulations of the arrangement. As for their class, I really don't know about that. And finally, Kingston Japan is generally thought of to be the superior brand when it comes to flashcart speeds. Hope that helps. [​IMG]

    Kingston Japan is highly regarded in speed because with their 1GB and 2GB cards, they WERE the fastest, when speed wasn't documented on the cards themselves. With the SDHC standard, though, came classes. A class 6 card is going to be faster than a class 2 card, no matter who makes which one. And yes, class really does make a difference.

    In for 3 Acekard2i's.
    With the coupon I got 3 for the price of what other sites sell 1 for, and since I didn't need them quickly it was a perfect match, and it was awesome that things worked out for all 3 of us (shoptemp, gbatemp and me!)
    Now we'll see how the order pans out.

    R4 is pretty cheap. I remember forking over lots of cash for one. I might get one for my friend.

    It was a temporary discount for the first 100 customers, then due to some downtime on the shop ShopTemp decided to extend it a little bit longer and to more people while taking a loss on each one, for the benefit of the community. However the discount has since ended and now what you're seeing is the regular ShopTemp price. It's still quite low, and you likely won't see such a lower price anywhere else.

    I gonna try buying something but could someone clear these two matters up?

    1. Are we supposed to make new accounts for shoptemp or do our gbatemp ones carry over?
    2. Someone earlier mentioned using discount coupons, how do you get those?

    Thanks.

    EDIT

    Nevermind. I figured it out lol.
