    It's legit, they are dealextreme but for wholesale orders, and products that can't be sold on Dealextreme like the R4, Modchips and stuff

    DON'T buy R4 it's rubbish.

    Edge or Acekard 2.

    cheaper and much better.

    From Where???
    the first statement is opinion. the r4 is a great kit that allows for the playback of nds games and homebrew with very high compatibility. however the ak2 is a wonderful kit and the price is usually under 30$.

    If anything, the R4 is arguably the best cart for homebrew. It's the most popular (by far) so there's a lot of support there.

    probably outdated though
    maybe new firmware fixed it?

    They're only good for when you're ordering more than 3 of the same product. I haven't tried them, but a few people told me they were ok, but certainly not great.

    Also, R4 was once great, and it's still good for basic roms and homebrew, but there are many better, and cheaper choices out there. It's still not a bad choice, seeing it still has a huge user database, but I'd get something different.

    If you already have a R4, and is satisfied with it, there's no reason to really buy a new one, unless the R4 breaks, or you're interested in actually having some features into games.

    My friend ordered an R4 from them, and they sent him a clone of it. However, when I ordered my R4 from them, it was legit.
