    Not getting this ... $45 is a bit steep and my battery will drain like hell (I have a ds phat with what maybe 2 hrs of battery life on a full charge) Yes Moonshell 2 FTW and .dpg vids are pretty small.

    it has too many flaws at the momemt so they really have to look into that... eg)battery life, price and usefulness
    i really think it is not worth making a cart just for this reason though it does make it more safer for nintendo

    I won't be buying it. It's nice in theory, but it's not practical... I'd rather use a laptop for films.

    If they improved battery life, added commercial rom support and reduced the cost I'd buy it.

    Gah... DPG = Free. And it doesn't even load roms.

    $45, it is like the second most expensive flashcart under the CycloDS Evolution xDD.

    Would rather get... DSTT/TTDS + SD Card + Moonshell = Win. x)

    some of the sites are ripping consumers
    you guys should click CHINESE (upper right) on hopebuy and see how much they are selling it (RMB 198)
    i even found a chinese site who is selling it at RMB 180 (26 USD)

    the funny part is some of these sites are from china itself
    if they can sell 28 USD in china why must they sell 45 USD to other countries?

    i can always understand other shops from other countries are selling at a higher price
    but .... well nevermibd

    well, it is not the first time that flashcarts have a lower price in china than other countries, so not strange it happened again on iplayer. any way, chinese people really get a poor salary....

    It's simple wages and the cost of living are much less in china, so they can sell much cheaper. It has nothing to do with ripping people off, it's just that those western stores also have to make a living somehow.

    But I have to agree $45 for just a media player is just too much. Maybe it can appeal to people who don't know about flashcards though.

    this is a brilliant idea except i wouldn't pay $45 for a card that doesn't load roms, would have huge movie files, and is made by a team of newcomers (no offense)
