    So I found this on my local .craigslist.org/ & I think this is a good deal but unsure of it..

    R4DS for nintendo ds (NDS) + 2 GB Kingston microSD - $35

    I now have R4DS in stock. They each come with a 2gb Kingston microSD card. It seems there has been doubts on the internet involving fake R4's. So I did a lot of research on which is a reliable distribution source and bought it from them. I also researched how to tell if your R4 is real or not. I have inspected each and every one of the R4 in my inventory and they are all real. I have even loaded them with the genuine R4 kernel (v1.18 English) and tested them on my own DS. Buyers are welcome to test the R4 out on my DS or their own to make sure it's authentic. I can even do the inspection in front of you to reassure you.

    & then I asked a few questions & this was the reply I received


    My model is simply the R4DS, not to be mistaken with the R4-III or the R4 upgrade which supports HC. The latter two versions are actually clones which if you research their names in google you will find forums on them. I got this bundle from http://www.nxpgame.com/r4tfk2g.html

    I got the bundle because it comes with Kingston which is a preferred brand of mine. Furthermore, if you look up "r4 legit nxpgame" you will find forums in which people inquired about the NXP site. I know since I did so myself a few weeks back before I started ordering this myself. I understand that you want to make sure you are not buying a crap card. No one would. That is why I allow everyone to check out the R4 on their DS or my own before they buy. Like I said in my ad, I inspect every single card I get. By inspecting, I actually open each card and look at the chip and board inside. I can open it up and show you how to inspect the card as well. I am selling the bundle for $35 dollars. Let me know if you are still interested.

    no it is not, R4 is an outdated card now. go buy an acekard 2, edge, or supercard DS1 from somewhere like dealextreme.com

    Acekard is about $11, TTDS is about $7 from deal extreme and you can pick up a 2Gb MicroSD card for between 3 to 5 pounds so that means it is a bad deal, as the previous poster stated get an Acekard or something else for a lot less, Acekards are very good in my opinion, very responsive and skinable via there interface.

    Not forgetting to mention AcEkards and the like are still officially supported whereas the origional R4 relies on 3rd party software such as YSMenu

    It may not be the best but it is a damn good card, order it from dealextreme, they also support SDHC memory cards so you could go bigger than 2Gb for the same $35 but if I were you I would get the SD card frome somewhere like EBuyer.com on Supersaver delivery and they should arrive at about the same time [​IMG]

    just realised you from the US, Maybe Newegg or similar for your mem card don't reckon you have EBuyer?

    Best card is speculative, I can only comment on the cards I have seen and tried and of those, the Acekard is the best but I have only seen R4, R4III, TTDS and Acekard but if you YouTube any of these cards you will see there UI and see what I mean. Edge card looks good also but is it worth that much more?

    acekard is good if you are techy and like to fiddle, but I bought my mum an EDGE card and it seems easier to use, it doesn't have some of the compatibility quirks that the acekard2 has.

    I believe it has a few extra features, like real time guide. but for your average pirate it is just over priced if you don't use those features.
