    It runs games better.
    It can run new games much faster than any R4.
    The new pokemon will not work on any R4 and probably won't for a few months. It's worked on AceKards since the day it came out.
    R4's stop updating quickly (ie: they stop fixing games, so you can't play any new ones).
    AceKard 2i is the same price or cheaper (depending on what R4 you're looking at).
    AceKards are made by the AceKard team, R4s are made by dozens of companies- none of which care about their users.
    The R4 firmwares are all based off either the orig. firmware (which is old, ugly and outdated) or Moonshell 2 (which you can run on the AceKard anyway).
    AceKards play homebrew better. This means more emulators (nes, snes, GB, GBC, msx...).
    AceKards can run AKAIO, a firmware that is better than Moonshell 2 IMO, and it doesn't require massive amounts of patching.

    If you buy an R4 and come here to ask for help with a game nobody will help you.

    R4 is old, unsupported and dead (officially).

    DO NOT BUY A R4.

    (I still own a original R4 and still say this)

    Since you own an R4 [​IMG] do you know if I can just copy my saves from the R4 over to Acekard and they'll work perfect ?

    I'd definitly suggest upgrading from the R4 and Acekard was the logical choice for me(But good to ask 1st and make sure Acekard does everything you need to before buying.... It does tho [​IMG] )

    It will change you from someone who spams for game fixes to someone who gloats when new games boot the first time.

    Example -

    R4 Owner: bawwwww dis gaem no werk. wer iz patch!!?!??11!

    You: It works fine on my AceKard [​IMG]

    Oh lol. I've never used an R4, but I heard that they are terrible. :S

    When I got my Acekard I was in love with it, but I don't see how any other flash cart could be better or worse.

    Do all flashcarts automatically DLDI patch? I've never had to do that DLDI thingy, so I don't even really know what it is. xD All my homebrew and games work fine without it.

    That's another pro with AceKard I guess.

    This should explain everything an R4 can't do. Such a long list, I didn't wanna copy & paste.

    AGREED

    I own a R4, but I'm thinking of buying an AceKard 2i too.

    Hope my parents think so too.
