    Use AKAIO with a class 6 SDHC memory card, and you shouldn't have any lag problem.

    The AK2 loader doesn't lag, but AKAIO sometimes lags on the simplest things - I've gotten lag on AKAIO from running freaking Pheonix Wright but Grand Theft Auto runs smooth and fine...?

    From Where???
    i've never had lag with anything using akaio and my ak2, ak2.1s, rpg. a list of games that people have lag with and save files would be nice =). gta runs smooth, i've had no issues at all. i'm using the dma-quicksave mode by default and all patches on with an 8gb transcend class6.

    Well i have 2 cards right now, a R4 and Acekard 2i
    so far, my R4 have not dissapoint me at all, i've never had problems with it and my games loads fine, lag free
    but when i got the Acekard 2i, i noticed lags in GTA. Not much but enough to be noticed, usually when i am moving around fast
    if i load GTA on my R4, no lags at all
    i've noticed the same difference in Ryuusei no Rockman 3 also, but the lag is inbetween the loading time such as battles or resets
    it just stays on a white screen for 2 to 10 seconds
    but not to say that Acekard 2i is a bad flash card, it plays my other games fine too
    i am just suspecting my micro sd card, or maybe the rom i downloaded but the lag really spoils the game for me =/

    I have experienced lags in ak2.1 with 3 different microsd cards:
    8gb silicon power class4
    4gb transcend class6
    2gb kingston

    in both suikoden tierkreis and phantasy star 0, videos lag.
    audio finishes earlier than video in a manner unlike the originals.
    Some games may present small "gaps" where action stops for a split second when the game loads something from cart during gameplay. In my case I tried Kim Possible Kimmunicator. didn't like game, but in any case, during gameplay, in the lower screen, theres a menu that displays some "live" info, like messages and tips, and seems like they are loaded live from cart. Each time a new one is displayed, the game locks for a split second cuasing "stutter".

    The fun fact is I have a friend with a DSTT and the same card (2gb kingston), and in his case, the video in suikoden tierkreis suffers from audio lag instead, or maybe it's the video that plays too fast. however it may be, the video finishes early and the audio is cut off :|

    Use the panasonic sd formatter to fix any 'lag' youre experiencing.

    I have a 4GB Transcend Class 6, an AK2i, and I do have some lag when killing multiple monsters in Castlevania OoE, and in Pokemon, and in GTA.

    Running in my R4 everything is much smoother, no lag at all.

    So yeah, I think Acekards do lag more than other cards, that's just the way it is.

    It's strange that people seem to be reporting lag more with AK2 than other cards.

    However I tried GTA on my AK2.1, and it seems to run just as smooth as my DSTT, no slowdown, no jerkiness.

    This is using a 4gb class 4 card, with a 15mb/s transfer rate, and 1.5 second random access.

    I'm using a class 2 8 gig sandisk. I.e. slowest and cheapest.
    No lag here.
