Is this card safe/legit to use? Or should I not get it?

    it's a standard DS card, if you only want DS games on it, it's more than enough and costs roughly 10 USD

    Looks like one of the cards with a timebomb (stops working after 1-2 years and you need a new kernel update which may or may not be released, or set the time back indefinitely to keep it working)
    This is a much better cart: http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149

    Does that work for DSI? Also can be sent to the UK?

    Thanks

    It's safe, they are GBAtemp's official sponsor.

    Appreciate the reassurance but I'm suspicious of free shipping(i mean I can kinda understand that) but its the cheapness of the cards I mean £7 for an R4 card when I spent £15+ on my old one? Sounds almost too good to be true XD

    Well it's £14 actually.
    China usually has free shipping even if the item only costs a dollar, shipping seems to be really cheap there. Takes a long time though. If you want faster shipping, opt for registered shipping, it shaves 1-2 weeks off the shipping time for me.

    When I said £7 I was talking about the original R4 card (if thats the original I believe it to be so) but yeah those prices are really good, I did see some people saying that they have being charged multiple times (one on this forum) but I dunno I really needed one for my DSI but in England they are more than rare but when I get my next amount of money I'll probably try them since I wouldn't like these DSI's I have go unused (the buttons feel so nice)

    Whats your opinion on the DSTWO?

    I have one, it's still my favorite DS cart because of all the features it offers, but the price is higher and it will drain the battery more (only noticeable in sleep mode)
