I'm probably going to sound stupid for asking but

    Where should I buy if I want a cheap reliable website to buy an Acekard2i from? I'm not TOO concerned with speedy as long as it takes less than a month to get here. I read a few reviews on Shoptemp that said ZhuZhuChina was a good website to buy from. Have any of you guys bought your Acekards from them? If so would you recommend them? Sorry I just felt I had to ask because I heard RHS was accidentally sending out fakes Acekards too and I figured that if this website costs less and had a good rep I would buy from them. Because I'd like to get my Acekard for as cheap as possible since I don't plan to use it that much since I have an R4 but it's finally starting to show it's wear and tear plus it doesn't work on the DSi. So thanks to anyone who can tell me if they like that site or maybe tell me a better one [​IMG]

    the only shop i'd buy from right now is www.realhotstuff.com. they are the only site who has issued a recall of the recent 1:1 ak2i clones. most sites are selling the clones and if you are looking to save a few bucks you will probably end up buying from a site that stocks them (as the cheaper cards are usually clones).

    when you get your card make sure you check the anti-counterfeit code. if it has been checked more than once your card is fake. sadly, this is the current reality of the ak2i market.

    before you buy ask the reseller to check the code so that you know you are getting a legit acekard. when you get it the code should have only been checked that 1 time.

    there isn't much you can do to avoid the clones. what you should do is buy from a reseller who is honest, who will allow you to return it (free of charge) if it is a clone, etc.

    Oh okay I just saw on the news on here that apparently RealHotStuff had sold clones to people so I wasn't too sure. I think I used them before when I bought my M3 and it stopped working a few months later so...
    well if thats the only place you know is selling the real one. I was just hoping i could get it from the $12 site instead of the $20 site since I was only planning really to use it to try out the new games every once in a while but i guess it's worth the extra money to know I'm getting a real one instead of a clone

    if you read the spoiler in that news post you will find the letter from RHS. in the letter they state that as of 8/30/11, all ak2i kits they sell will have the code checked before it is sent out. this way they guarantee that the card you get is a real card. when you check the code yourself you will see that it was checked 1 time before.
