    Hello fello gbatempers!
    Once again I am relying on your knowledge!

    I am out to upgrade from my Ez4 slot2 solution that still works perfectly to a slot1 solution just for it not to be as bulky and so I dont have to be in Windows since I am a mac user.

    So from the forums my thoughts became that Cyclo, R4 and G6 are the best choices. But now to decide from them!
    CycloDS sports the coolest features such as full download play. But will they release updates as long and as often as say the ezteam did for their ez3 and 4?

    And is there any reason to go with the R4 or G6 real instead as many people seem to like.

    Thanks for your time and help, me wuw you [​IMG]

    EDIT: Please also write a short sentence on why you choose one over the other [​IMG] Thank you again.

    I voted R4. After the updates it's almost as good as the CycloDS Evolution, and still much cheaper. You can buy cheap memory for it. Compatibly is good. Download Play compatibly is already quite good, and the R4 Team will make it better in the future.

    So it's going to be better than the CycloDS Evolution.

    I like the G6 Real too. But it doesn't have automatic DLDI Patching and the Download Play isn't better than the R4. It has internal memory, and that makes it expensive.

    But you have to decide for yourself! Atm the R4 gets 75% of the votes though...

    The download play is better than the R4, and AFAIK there isn't a DLDI released. I'm guessing you mean expensive rather than expansive, as internal memory would imply the opposite.

    I go for R4 at the moment, still don't know how good the evo-support will be.

    I'm really thinking about the R4 now. I've seen it go for 46 dollars including a 1GB Kingston Japanese Transflash unit. That's a really sweet deal. Thinking as of how the CycloDS Evo costs 50 dollars just for the cart without any memory.

    But people are saying the settings are better and the built in cheat menu looks sweet i got to say. And people are also complaining on the touch screen on the R4 menu. Doesnt work as it should etc etc.

    I honestly thought the poll would get much G6 love but i was wrong ^^;

    Thank you all for replying and voting in the poll. Special thanks to those who did both. And a strange look at those 80 passing by without doing any of it o.0 j/k

    Those who pro cyclo please write a sentence why so I can try and decide after hearing both sides [​IMG]

    The scds1 has a far far superior real time cheat engine with no slow-down, also a real time game guide/book option..... both are exclusive features.. R4 has realtime cheats but suffers from problems as well as slow-down when using the real time cheat feature.

    The SCDS is THE hidden gem.

    Faulty logic FTL. [​IMG]

    Anyway, I voted CycloDS because I see it as the best product on the market right now which has the best features. And those best features are not up for debate, they are concrete. A lot of people on here are still being fanboys and sticking to their R4/M3's. Having said that, the R4 is still a very respected card that despite not being as good as the cyclo right now, will still not do you wrong.

    I meant that the R4 Team will improve the Download Play.

    Yeah but right now the Cyclo is ALREADY at 100%, which means they will be able to get support for the newer games out quicker because they aren't backlogged with other games not working, not mention they get to work on newer features rather than try to catchup with other cards.

    I'm not saying the R4 is a pos or anything, just saying that as things stand right now, the cyclo seems to beat it. The cyclo and the 3in1 aren't best friends right now but they'll have a patch for that soon enough, their support is amazing thus far.

    It's awfully nice having SDHC support too, which was one of my main reasons for picking it. An english support team is pretty dandy too, I've dealt with foreign companies before and it was kind of a pain. I'm not 100% sure about the features of every other card, but it's pretty sweet having built in cheat-codes, slow down, etc, even if I never use em. And it's not THAT much more expensive.

    But that's just me. [​IMG]

    edit -- Also keep in mind, the cyclo has only been out for 2 weeks. I'll bet the majority of people in here haven't even played with, let alone touched or even seen in person, half of the cards they talk about. Not that everyone on here is that way, I am merely saying the R4 has been around a long time and has been the top guy for that tenure... You can't expect to get a reliable result from this pole on a 2-week old card vs a long-time champion and all of its fanboys.

    I would have to say the ability to support SDHC was one of the major things for me in paying the extra premium in getting the cyclo.

    Seems like G6 is out of the poll atleast [​IMG]
    Thought there was more love for it but guess I was wrong [​IMG]
    Good though, now I only have to focus on 2 cards.

    You're looking at paying double the price of an R4 if you purchase a typically priced Cyclo. Worth it? Your choice.

    Finally someone who isnt a noob with a R4.

    If you think about it the Cylo Evo is like a SCDS with SDHC, which isnt all that good. The SC-ONE also has slow motion, better homebrew(old homebrew) support,you can choose the save type for your game(less save space gives you more free space) or have it like the evil R4 and make it 512KB. SCDS also has no problems with the internal spring. Over the Cylco Evo it has multiple save files.

    EDIT- Browser stuffed up(reason for double post)

    I give the G6 some love because it's better quality overall. They have always been great with support and have all the features you ever wanted.

    Action Replay cheats that you import directly from the AR website, most often same week as the game release, is one of the newest addition they've made in their updates. [​IMG]

    It's pricier but as you should know, living in a consumer society, quality always beats the budget alternatives.
