    I dont have one but I heard that its good flashcart, one minus is that it can store only one skin and no changing skins in menu.

    It supports SDHC, which many people want. The R4 can not. I never change skins on my R4, so dont let that be a deal breaker. The DSTT also had built in support for expansion packs(which are included for free) and the R4 relies on homebrew for this support.

    I would get the DSTT. The R4 is going no where and the DSTT has potential.

    Well, a lot of people say that the DSTT is better. Feature that it holds over the R4 include...

    - Better download play support (R4 may have updated this)
    - SDHC compatible
    - Cheaper than R4 almost anywhere you go
    - Newer (I guess thats not really an advantage)

    R4 has some over DSTT though

    - bigger community
    - not springloaded (again, this could be considered either way)
    - better skins (I think)
    - ... built in moonshell?

    So yeah I personally think the DSTT is better


    EDIT:
    P.S. This topic is in the wrong section, btw.

    Umm... this topic is in the wrong place.

    I think an R4 would be better because it is constantly updated if a game is not supported.
