    I purchased 2 AK2is from this site and they aren't here yet but I just noticed that they sell the M3i upgrade which is a fake card and wondered if I should be worried about my purchase. What do you guys thinks?

    Oh god. That place totally looks sketchy. Why'd you even buy something from them? You can get stuff even cheaper elsewhere, from sites that are known to be reliable.

    Yes I did.

    Worst case scenario is that I will have to ship back and paypal will return my money and I'll contact yahoo and get him shut down =]

    I ordered from that place. I got a r4 that "looks" real, and took like 2 days for it to ship to my door.

    I'm not 100% sure it's real, but it looks exactly like the v2 r4.

    Yeah but they use airmail too... takes 7-10 days. Prolly just buy from realhotstuff and get it in a few days...

    lol I just got a new DSi and I sold my DS 6 months ago and I don't wanna wait =/

    Yeah, that definitely looks pretty sketchy. I would email them if it doesn't arrive in the next few days.

    I already have tracking info. It will be here tomorrow. The guy had good reviews for other products but there were no reviews for DS products.

    I just went ahead and ordered 2 more AK2is from Deal Extreme so if they are good from abotcity I'll have 4 AK2is lol and if a cycloDSi ever comes out I'll have to find lots of good people to sell to lol

    I had a similar experience a year ago with 'em. I'd order from them again, fwiw. Abot is good people, based on my one eperience.

    STATUS UPDATE:

    So, abot city rocks lol close to Dealextreme's prices without waiting 2-3 weeks! and its priority shipping which means you can get it in 2-4 days anywhere in the US! and great customer service =]

    Where else can you get a cycloDS for $30? =]

    I'm very pleased... surprisingly...

    Now I have 2 extra coming from hong kong I need to get rid of lol
