    Hi! I'm new here and I just ordered a R4 DS off eBay with a 1 GB Japanese Kingston Micro SD card ( did my research )
    I heard about the DealExtreme deal but ya know, I decided to go for the no wait decision.

    Anyway I hope this forum will help me gt the most out of my R4!

    Hi there!
    I'm new too and I just ordered a R4 from Dealextreme [​IMG]
    I prefer paying less but to wait longer for it!

    I hope I did the right choice to buy a R4 [​IMG]

    Oh.. and I just got a Toshiba 1go microSD from Ebay. Toshiba (made in Japan) are reliable, are they?
    I can't test the speed because my SD reader doesn't work anymore ¬_¬

    I couldn't hold out for the M3 Real any longer so I just ordered an R4 too! [​IMG]

    I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who posts here. You guys post a lot of good information for people who are new to the scene like me.

    I bought a 1GB Kingston from NewEgg for $13.56 shipped ($2.00 off code from their newsletter). I got lucky and got a Japan-made card.

    I ordered my R4 from RealHotStuff with a 5% off code posted here. It ended up being $46.45 shipped. They processed my order within an hour of me placing it! Looks like it'll be here quick.

    Anyway, I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions once I get my R4 in. Thanks to everyone for being so helpful [​IMG].

    You definitely won't be disappointed. It is BY FAR the easiest mod-type console thing I've ever had to use. It really is as easy as drag-and-drop.

    I recently bought an M3 Perfect Lite, for example, in order to play GBA games, and just have a slot-2 around. Once I managed to get everything set up, it's very nice to have, but it was about ten times harder than the R4 to get everything on it working properly ... plus, it's slower.

    And this was one of the "easier" slot-2 solutions in its time!



    R4 is friggin' easy, and friggin' good. Enjoy it.

    1st post! I just inherited my girlfriend's brother's red ds and I just bought an R4 from dealextreme. I am sooo anxious! I can't wait for it to come in... I just got a Wii too and am waiting for a way to play my backups using a solder-less method.


    As for the R4, I really bought it to play my old nintendo/super nintendo games. I've been searching the forums for help but I can't seem to find a end-all, be-all guide for playing NES and it looks like no hope for SNES or Genesis? Am I just not looking in the right place?

    Any links or forum threads would be great!
