    I've been looking around trying to find a good place to order it.
    I found http://r4store.com/.
    It has it priced $24.69 which looks marginally cheaper than most of the DSTT I've found.
    Would it be good to order here or somewhere else?

    I'd go with a trusted site myself. I bought from Gameyeeeah.com its a good site and you can get bundles.

    That site looks sketchy. I'd go with Gameyeeeah.

    EDIT: i might order something to see how it goes. i can always deny payment if it goes bad.

    How much do you trust kaidomain.com?

    From the looks of things, they've run up against similar issues to those that prompted DealExtreme to push the R4's out to VolumeRate - just like DX appear to be using VR as a front, Kaidomain appear to be using r4store as a front:

    http://www.kaidomain.com/WEBUI/ProductDeta...spx?TranID=1326

    Yeah, of *course* we believe those claims that r4store.com isn't associated with kaidomain. [​IMG]

    So, anyone got any experience with these guys, good or bad? Google shows there's been a little bit of discussion about them here, but I can't find much

    I ordered two DSTT's from ebuyrealm.com, one was fine, the other was a dud. Also, the shipping suuuuuuucked
    Everyone here says it took like 3 days to get theirs from them. It took me two weeks, it came from CA and I live in CO. I have NO idea why it was so slow. So now I have to send back my dud cart, then they are going to send me another one. I'm probably not going to have a flash cart for three weeks now. Bloody ridiculous....

    Darn. If that's true it'll take forever to get to FL. ;o;

    EDIT: Then would it be better to order from Gameyeeeeah?

    I bought from Gameyeeeah and it took exactly 2 weeks to arrive to New York from Hong Kong. Not that bad at all.

    Good choice, but takes them awhile to ship it out. Mine was a week before the shipped it. But when it was shipped, it took one week. So two weeks isn't bad.

    www.kaidomain.com / www.r4store.com

    They are both the same site, but kaidomain.com can't use Paypal if they sell flash cards, so they link to a "reputable dealer like r4store.com".

    But if you email r4store.com for an order, the address that mails you back is sales@kaidomain.com ;>


    Anyway, I emailed them before buying a Wiikey asking them if it was a clone, and they said that it wasn't.
    However, the chip didn't come in that tiny sealed square ESD bag they usually come in, and no hologram. And the color of the PCB is dark blue.

    The chip had that problem that Wiikey clones have when you install it unconfigured on a 3.0+ firmware, so that proves it's a clone.
