    Heard people saying that it stops working after a couple of weeks, is this true?

    Its stops working in an bad batch of the old Acekard 2's, Acekard 2.1 onwards fixed this problem.

    The old Acekards (>1-2 months old) had a failure rate of around 10%, and in those cases stopped working after a few weeks (not immediately)

    However there was a redesign of the PCB and all the problems (so far) have been fixed.

    10% ? i recall entire batches going bad, more like 10% success rate.

    2 of the 5 kits i set up stopped working within a few minutes, FAT error. the other 3 lasted only a few weeks. 2 i received later on were DOA.

    my 2.1 has had no issues, they have fixed the problem.

    I believe OzModChips said the percentage of faulty carts was "over 10%".

    The main issue now is with sellers mixing in old cards with new (2.1) ones.

    ...if DX confirmed shipping 2.1 exclusively, I would order immediately!

    i got a review sample from team acekard in the box. so if you see it for sale in the box its the 2.1. dx never sells something other than what is pictured, from my experience.
