    I purchased one from another website and it turned out to be a fake.

    I'm waiting for my new one to arrive and I was wondering if anyone had had any problems with it?

    Its an AceKard 2i.

    Edit: I mean TempShop.

    Eternia!
    AK2is are still there. I just checked.

    They are genuine because SHOPTEMP is good!

    They're just saying "Look, but don't touch"

    yh, they were selling them until just a few days ago. They've closed down the the flashcards section, and dont sell them anymore. You can still see the cards as reference, but cant purchase.

    I believe they said people who ordered one before they stopped selling would still get their orders shipped.

    I just went in and looked at the order, and it says "This order is marked as Shipped", so I am hoping it is :$

    you sure about that?
    ive seen on their earlyer today that they have some again, plus they removed that post from the news, so they may be selling them again.

    Just checked, and on top of the flash cart product pages it says you can't, but I just added a 2i to my cart fine.

    I bought one from shoptemp about a month or so ago.
    Works great with AKAIO, so must be legit!
    I'm glad a ordered when I did!!
    Took 2-3 weeks to reach me in the USA.

    Yeah I think that message on flashcard pages, is outdated, and they forgot to remove it.

    Also I bought an AK2i, no problems.
