    Hi there.

    I'm about to purchase an Acekard 2i and I'm swinging towards buying it from r4i.co.uk, which as you know is part of memorybits. Has anyone ever had any problems buying anything from them? Where else is a genuine place to buy one, I don't want to buy a fake one. Also how would you know if its fake and what would you do if it was? :\

    I'm from the UK and know about DealExtreme but don't want to wait 3+ weeks for a delivery.

    Thanks [​IMG]

    I found www.hangar.org.uk while looking for a place to get a decent flashcart to recommend to a friend. They list Acekard2i and M3i Zeroes. The reviews and the whole site look pretty legit but I have not used them.

    Sorry. It was more making sure that the site r4i.co.uk was a legit place to buy from. They seem to be the cheapest place to go for.

    Although I realise nds-gear are probably one of the more reputable ones.

    I have answered a question not long ago concerning r4i.co.uk, ok i'll answer it again.

    I know of a couple of gamers who have purchased the acekard2i from r4i.co.uk without any problems, i have never bought from them myself so i am unable to confirm it.

    I'll probably just bite the bullet and go for it. [​IMG]

    I brought 2 of mine from this site http://www.techwizad.com/ in the past.

    I mean they were always legit - as far as I can tell - but the second time the postage took a few more days than expected.

    Althought looking at it now they seem a little more expensive than they use to be...

    7dayshop based in jersey but big retailer, 10.99 atm
    was looking for another cheap one so any advance be good [​IMG]
    edit: hum looks like awaiting stock - was sure they had them last night.

    anyway on r4i use code 'countdown20' and you can get the ak2i with a 2gig card for 14.36 delivered which seems decent
