    Between insane and insecure
    nds-card.com is GBATemp's official sponsor and thus far they haven't ripped off a single person and have only shipped out legit products*.
    You will get 1:1 clones of R4 and Acekard 2i, but those don't matter as they are literally just R4/Ak2i hardware only made by another manufacture. This is because their teams went under for a number of different reasons and sold their designs to continue future productions. They are the literally the same carts, just not made by the old teams. So you won't have any issues with software on them.
    This is the same on all sites

    Yeah, I've ordered from them before with no problems.

    They're a bit pricier than most other sellers, but you're paying for that reliability.

    I can vouch for them. Over the past few months, I have purchased a standard R4, R4i 3DS, and now an AK2i. The carts all arrived in a timely manner (Accept the AK2i, which is on the way still.), and have not been let down once.

    I felt that nds-card.com is good shop for me, because their response is quick.

    You don't have to worry.

    ordered a r4 and a ak2i from them on two seperate occasions.
    The ak2i is a great card to use in a cfw 3ds for your ds games and what not, im hoping its lower power drain than the r4-sdhc, im not really a fan of the r4 to be honest.
    On both occasions they were reliable and pretty fast considering the distance.

    I ordered a Gateway card back when it was actually worth having one. Had it in the mail a couple weeks later. 10/10

    Edit: Forgot to say, I'm from Puerto Rico and they shipped here no problem, just in case. :)

    NO COFFEI!
    Ordered an R4 last Summer, got here fine and works great! Just note, at least to Canada, if you pick free shipping it can take up to 2 months! They are certainly a great site though.

    i was going to buy from nds-cart and i was trying to get a r4i but there mastercard wasnt working, so i put in a support ticket and then i got a email saying can you pay with paypal and saying that now mastercard is now working but it wasn't working for me still so i didn't want to make a paypal account and then i just didn't like how the site isn't Https so i did some more research and found out they had my flashcart i wanted on amazon so i ordered from there and it ended up coming in from California and being a legit flashcart so if you can i recommend trying amazon and see if they have the flashcart you want there.

    actually north korea. please send help
    I've bought from there twice. I bought an R4i Gold RTS and a set of screwdrivers containing a tri-wing screwdriver and a JIS #0 screwdriver, I think it was. With free shipping the R4i took around a month and a half to arrive, the screwdrivers took a month or less. I've had no problems with the R4i, aside from issues with the cart's contacts being too loose, but from what I can tell that's a normal problem anyways.

    The U S of A mate. That's how long it took for me. If I were to purchase something again, I would pay the extra $20 for 3-5 business day shipping
