    Has anyone here ordered from bestr4i3ds.com? I want to order a DS save dongle so I can back up my DS saves without having to use ftp over an unsecure network. They seem to offer the best price with free shipping: http://www.bestr4i3ds.com/r4i-save-dongle-backup-nintendo-3ds-ndsi-nds-original-game-data-p-51.html

    They say the accept PayPal but when you checkout they ask for your address and your PayPal email so they can email you an invoice. Most sites that accept paypal can generate a invoice and don't have to request money from you. This, combined with the fact that their entire website is using unsecure HTTP to store personal details makes me wary :unsure:

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated :lol:

    I have good experiences with Bestr4i3ds.
    The problem with paypal is that most flashcard stores get shut down very fast. They can't offer it directly.

    Ahh I see, that makes sense :lol: I gave them my details and they sent a request through a PayPal merchant account so I'm fairly certain they're legit. Thanks for the feedback ;)

    don't know how about the service of BestR4i3DS.com to other countries,
    i have to say BestR4i3DS.com is one of the Best flashcarts store in USA,
    recently, many members complain RHS,
    but in bestr4i3ds, they let me feel very well.
    Before ordering Supercard DSTwo from them, i wrote an email about shipping and return,
    they replied in one hour, very fast.

    And they ship from USA local, I ordered on Monday, arrived on Thursday.

    Anyone ordered Supercard DSTwo from bestr4i3ds.com ?
    My 3ds updated to V8.1.0 , checked that DSTwo need a low version 3ds or NDSL to update,
    will dstwo from them work on my V8.1.0 3ds directly?
    i only have a 3DS.

    Recently bought R4i Gold 3DS from bestr4i3ds.com. Plan on ordering from them again. 5 bus days to US, genuine merchandise, good pricing- that's solid!

    you're not luck enough :lol:

    The cases have 3 colors: Pink, White, Black
    random colors cases will ship out together with flashcarts

    my dad works for nintendo.
    thats odd, when you have a flashcart you will not be need a case. you only carry 1 card...
    oh, nvm i forgot, when you have a flashcart you leave your original carts inside a case and never touch them again

    So I received my R4i Save Dongle a few days ago and it's working perfectly. It took about 2 weeks to get here (Which isn't too bad from Singapore to Ireland) and BestR4i3DS.com's customer support is pretty good. All in all, they're a good seller that accepts PayPal (Which is rare these days) and has decent customer support and reasonable prices, so I'd highly recommend them. :)

    (Mods, you can go ahead and close this thread now, thanks :lol: )

    I think you are in Mexico , if so, you'd better not choose Express shipping, such as DHL, UPS, Fedex,
    because Mexico customs is very strictly, you have high risk to charge taxes and and the parcel will have troubles in Mexico customs.
    So,recommend you choose normally Singapore shipping with trackingNo. is ok.

    thanks for your order, i will let my workmate process it

    recently bought a dstwo from best3dsr4i.com on 15 sept.
    i'm residing in singapore and apparently the stock is shipped from the singapore warehouse on 16 sept.
    up till now the singpost website tracking is still showing me this.


    the customer service from bestr4i3ds.com suggested me to use 17track.net, but it's showing me the same thing.
    if it's shipping from within the same country, it shouldn't have took so long.
    now i'm getting worried. :sad:
