    What cart+microSD do you currently have? and....

    If you could go back to that fateful day that you ordered your flashcart+microSD from DX,0shippingzone,leetmod,gamekool,etc.....
    What would you buy instead? Do you have any regrets?

    I have an ak2i + 8gb C2 Sandisk microSD that I bought from leetmod for around $40CAD.
    My ak is starting to get contact issues and it takes like half an hour to copy songs onto my C2... I'm starting to wish I had bought an iEDGE from shoptemp and a C6 16GB A-DATA mSD from newegg.

    I've got a AK2i+ 4gb Patriot µSD, an AKRPG (using only the nand memory), an iplayer+16gb Patriot µSD and a DS linker (gathering dust somewhere).
    If I could start again, I wouldn't have bought the DS linker, which was already outdated back then, but then again I was a complete noob.

    Well I was a n00b and payed $40 for an AceKard 2i off eBay.
    The 4GB microSDHC card I use was one I had laying around that I used to use to store my music on because it wouldnt all fit on the 2GB MP3 player I had.

    I would get a SuperCard DSONEi if I could do it over again... [​IMG]

    The first DS flashcart I bought was a CycloDS Evolution, but I can't remember where from. No regrets.

    My first cart I ever bought was a DSTT and a 4GB MSD C4 (Kingston)

    I wish I never bought that, and instead got an AK2.1 and a 8GB Sandisk.

    I currently now have
    AK2i - 8GB PNY MSD C4
    CycloDS - 8GB SanDisk C2
    M3i Zero - 4GB SanDisk C2

    I'd rather have a CycloDSi, but considering those don't exist, I stuck with the AK2i. I might go for a SuperCard DSTwo when they come out, probably after it's reviewed.

    I regret buying my AK2i for $34 cause I didn't feel like waiting for shipping from DX at the time.

    My first flashcard was a G6 Lite, my second was a CycloDS, my current is an AK2i. Generally there's probably nothing i'd change. They've all done what they were supposed to.

    I would have never bought a DS-Extreme.... I paid almost the same price for it as a freakin DS. =(

    The Acekard 2i was the first flashcart I bought. I've looked at others and briefly tried an M3i zero but IMHO the Acekard + AKAIO rocks.

    If I could do it over again the only thing I'd have done differently was never bought a DSI - the DSL + Acekard + AKAIO + EZ 3in1 is the best kit available, for me.

    I would not have bought 3 R4s for $40 a pop.
    Other than that, I'm pretty happy.
    Well, maybe I'd get a Supercard DSTWO for Free Cheat, but I'm happy with my Acekard.

    I have an Acekard RPG + Transcend 8GB class6 + EZ-FLASH 3in1 Expansion Pack and an original R4 (not using it).
    If I could go back, MAYBE I would buy a CycloDS Evolution. At the moment, I don't regret anything and my AKRPG can play anything, thanks to gelu and Yellow Wood Goblin.
