    I am considering buying something from them, but shipping is a major factor for me. What is the approximate time for something to arrive?

    Well since its based in China, it would be some where from about 5-9 weeks or so maybe more.
    It's kind of a wild guess. I've never ordered from them.

    Wow, I almost ordered from them but upon realizing where they were located looked for someplace closer. Sounds like that was a good idea. They had the best prices but I really didn't want to wait a month or more.

    If getting it NOW is as important to you as it is to me, I would recommend www.realhotstuff.com.
    They are really fast and AMAZING customer service.
    You will get it this week if you order now.

    Wow! Realhotstuff have acekard 2i for $17. That's much cheaper than most others located in US. I remember when I bought it for $36 when it first released by dealwoot.... heh. I feel old now.

    I was planning to get the r4i Gold since it was cheaper and have wood support. But acekard 2i for $19 sounds plausible...
    I was planning to get the supercard before r4, but I have 6 flashcards I can't use on the 3DS (Cyclods for NDS, x3 Original r4, Acekard 2i) so I'm planning to get a cheap one. Guess I will do some research.

    I've only ordered one thing from zhuzhuchina, and it arrived here in Georgia very quickly. Around 10 days IIRC.

    Moved to a more appropriate section.

    Hey bro, do yourself a solid and get the DSTWO or R4i Gold.
    Both run on the 3DS. Most likely when (if) you get one you won't have to buy another flashcart.
    You can get them from RHS to.

    Lol, I remember when I got my AK2i.
    I RAN home from school for 4 days.
    When I got it in the mailbox I was lost for words.
    And I thought THAT was a long time.:glare:

    Holy shit no. China has never taken more than 3 weeks to arrive from the day they shipped it for me. Usually it takes less than 2 weeks.

    Well, I've never had the guts to order from China.
    Heard of to many scammers.
    It was just based on other people's experience.
    (I am in no way racist against China for people who might suspect of me in such a way.)

    I received a R4 for free from them and it took around 2-3 weeks.

    It depends where you buy from.

    Just a quick question. Why do you prefer R4i Gold over Acekard? I know that Acekard is taking longer to update, but is that it?

    The Ak2i's taken over a month for the past few updates, and the last one was over two months ago and there's no mention of an update... so for people that have an updated 3DS, the AK2i is not even a possible option.

    In addition Wood has been updating for game fixes way faster than AKAIO for months as well.

    Also while the R4i Gold has a physical sticking issue (like I showed in the review), it doesn't affect playability like the AK2i's contact issue does.

    I had an acekard and had to buy a R4i Gold later. The R4i Gold is better in every aspect, even the time to initialize the card is shorter.
