    Someone mentioned this on the Acekard forum, and someone else responded that the silver sticker is also legitimate. I don't know if that was an "official" response or not, but it appears that both stickers are fine.

    Cheers for the info Bri, glad to hear that (hope the person who posted it is correct).


    Good luck bulletmark and others, hope it works out.
    The solution(s) they posted here are not as generous, I'm not sure why I'm lucky.

    Perhaps that solution is for fake/clone carts received that DO work, as mine failed within an hour or so of using it (as well as being 'fake').

    -I just filled out the form I linked to in my fist post (as the DX site tells you to do if incorrect item is received). Submitting the form probably emails them but I did it via the form.

    Hello all. I ordered a DSTT from dealextreme on 11/21/08 and received it today (rather quick if you ask me). Anyways, I took it a part and compared it to pics Tanas posted here and good news, its real. [​IMG] So, I think dealextreme is trying to be honorable and making sure that they are now shipping only real DSTT's. Just my 2cents. Thanks. Scootmcfly

    xist, I don't think it matters which sku you order. There is a risk you will get a fake anyhow. In the last 2 weeks, I ordered 2 by sku 15613 (http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.15613) which is supposed to be guaranteed and checked to be genuine but I got 2 fakes.

    Just got mine today... I have to say, the quality seems pretty shoddy even for a fake.

    Check out the board below the contacts and the divot at the top. sku.15613, btw, ordered 11/14. I'll be filing an Item Defective complaint shortly.

    I just received my DSTT card from dx (sku.15613), ordered on 21/11/08. It's a white one and guess what ? xD... it's real [​IMG]. I opened the case up, it had the new PCB version as shown here http://www.ndstt.com/en/anti_fake.html and works fine so far with the 1.16 firmware.

    I just got 10 of these cards and 4 are gone already because of 1.16 - i checked the rest and they are all fake so i sent in a request to deal extreme about it and im waiting on a reply.
    If i put the rest to 1.15 will they be ok ?

    I know people use them on 1.15 but im wondering if it works ok on that version for definate ? any issues at all ?

    Thanks guys.

    I ordered mine on the 28th so I will see if they are now sending legit ones. But for 7 bucks you can't beat it.
