    Is it worth it for me to buy a DSTWO to replace my R4i SDHC Gold Pro with? I know it has better emulation and such, but the price is a little high (definitely higher than the R4i).

    it depends on the games you want to play, if you only want to play ds games, then a R4 card is a better choose for you, besides, r4i gold 3ds have a better compatible with new or old micro sd cards, but r4i sdhc 3ds rts would better like a new micro sd card

    in terms of features, build and support, the DSTWO is the best flashcart currently in the market. this is wholly irrelevant unless you care about the inner workings of your card, though. emulation is far from perfect, too.

    if anything, you might wanna consider battery life- on a OGDS or DSL the DSTWO outperforms pretty much every other flashcart if memory serves, but it's the opposite for the DSi and 3DS: you'll barely manage 2 hours thanks to the CPU constantly hogging the battery.

    if you really don't care and just want something that works, you might wanna get a R4i Gold 3DS RTS. you're basically paying for quality when it comes to the DSTWO.

    The emulation may not be perfect, but it's pretty darn good. I certainly wouldn't say it's "far from perfect". You're not going to do better in any case. I'm amazed that I'm able to play all three DKC games. That's worth the price of admission for me.

    But if all you want is DS games, maybe it's not worth it to you.
