    GBAtemp's official DSTT review
    Slot-1, SDHC, cheat, auto dldi...
    [​IMG]

    The much awaited official GBAtemp review of the DSTT is now up! Check it out to see how well this card stacks up.

    The DSTT is a new, cheap slot-1 flashcard that boasts a lot of the latest features like SDHC, cheats, soft reset, saving directly to MicroSD and GBA support with the optional GBA expansion pak. It enters the market out of relatively nowhere but already has an impressive list of features. Few cards come to the market with this sort of functionality upon initial release. Yet, does it actually perform well enough to win people over in this highly competitive market? Read the review to find out!

    Looks real promising. Maybe I should pick one up (or just enter the contest).

    how do I enter the giveaway?

    Could the support for Contra 4 be fixed in a FW update?

    Most likely yes.

    I should have mine when I get back from my trip in a few days, so if anyone has any further questions feel free to drop a PM or ask here.

    1. Click here

    2. I'd imagine so, yes. Probably just something they overlooked. There is no fix yet though.

    Sounds like a really great cart! I hope I get one, otherwise when I get home will have to get back on trying to find a cart to get. [​IMG] I wants to play my DS again. And Opium, great review, you do good work. [​IMG]

    Since Contra 4 has a problem creating the save file, have you tried creating a save file on another cart (like the R4)and then copying it over to the TTDS?

    It looks and sounds like an N-Card + R4. Good combo. If I didn't own both already I would get this cart.

    Can it run dslinux? Many newer cards fail at even running the WMB version of dslinux, so should be tested in reviews.

    I don't want to sound like a jerk, but why the hell is this praised so much?
    Even the SLOT-2 SuperCard and M3 Professional had this feature. Not to mention N-Card, R4, M3 Real and G6 Real (OK, not 100% sure about those two), CycloDS, DSLink, eWin2 and so forth. This is a very standard feature, so why did you list it on the 'pros' of this card?

    All EZ-Flash and all G6-Flash cards (including EZ-V and G6 Real) keep save data in an onboard chip. Not sure about the M3 range because I don't have one.

    Having dramatically shorter loading times and direct save to microSD is a great feature wouldn't you say? Not all the latest cards have it. It is certainly a big pro for the card. As you can probably tell I was mainly an EZ-V user before the DSTT so the difference was quite big.

    Nice review, minor niggle under the official feature list 32Gbit=4GBytes (rather than the 32Gbytes of SDHC).

    Great review, was waiting for this.

    Will there come an NEOFlash TTDS review?

    And seeing the GBA pak is the same as the Ewin Expansion pak, I'm guessing its also compatible with other flashcards?

    There's really no reason to. They're EXACTLY the same (so far).
