    hello i have read through all card forums and its made me even more unsure now, basicly i want a decent card that wont packup after few days but i want to keep price as low as possible also i want one with ease of use. i have looked at the R4, DSTT, and the EDGE so which honestly would you recomend and best place to get one. i have looked at dealextreme but if there is anywhere else that are trustworthy please tell.. my order of preference are[*]price[*]quality[*]ease of use (set up and loading games onto it) also do you laod all games the same on all different makes of card or do they differ?

    1. DSTT would win this one but the other two are so close it should not matter
    2. I think Edge wins this because it is almost as durable as a real game
    3. All three are very easy to set up

    R4 is pretty much dead, not a lot of updates and lots of fakes around. DSTTs are cheap but they also have many fakes around. There are no edge fakes but it is $20 dollars. The Edge is what i would go with. You would probably be happy with it.

    DealExtreme has Acekard 2.1: Price $11, Team updates frequently, but it's not as durable...

    As long as your not going nut's and throwing it everywhere... It's a good card.

    Be sure the picture says 2.1!!
    The older ones seem to have a problem with the SD fitting in...
    EDIT:But if it's a choice between R4, DSTT, and EDGE then i would say EDGE

    DX is hving problems with supplying fake cards even if you order from the real sku. so if you the the DSTT get it from somewhere else. Every other card is okay to order from their though.

    on the dstt you have a spring in the microsd slot = fail.

    edge is the winner, regular updates and the card is almost unbreakable.

    You know you posted this on the Edge forum, so essentially you're going to get a lot of people saying that the Edge is the best. Indeed the Edge is by far the best of the three you've mentioned.

    That said, the Acekard 2.1 is not only cheaper than the Edge, but it also has a better menu system (in fact, one of the best menu systems of any flash cart at any price). The Edge is indeed a little sturdier, but unless you're going to be throwing your flash cart across the room, the Acekard 2.1 is a better choice in my opinion.

    I use a ds firecard from dealextreme and it has worked perfectly for the 6 months i have had it. Memory is already built in and it is very easy to use. you just drag and drop files without the need of dldi. it was also very cheap. the 8Gbit (1 GB) is under $30 and you can double the memory for less than 10 more dollars.
