    I've used them before, but i'm interested in finding out if the cards they sell are legitmate ones or clones (I purchased an R4i for £6 with a 4gb SD Card around christmas time. The SD Card was legit, at least).

    I personally don't trust them, they aren't on Acekard's reseller list, and they primarily stock R4s.

    It wouldn't surprise me if they're selling fake Acekards to try and diminish their sales, to help the R4 succeed.

    That site is also reported to be selling fake iEDGEs. I'm also going to recommend ShopTemp. They have the lowest prices around ($11 with the coupon code in the ShopTemp stickies)

    I have bought quite a few acekard 2i's from r4i.co.uk, in fact my latest purchase turnt up this morning and i have already updated it to work on my DSi XL, so the answer to your question is YES they are legit as with all the acekard 2i's i have purchased not one has been a clone/fake.

    Received 3 AceKard2i's from r4i.co.uk this morning. Ordered on Saturday and they were sent second class, not bat at all considering Monday was a bank holiday.

    Updated all 3 to run on DSi 1.4 all OK, currently running latest firmware 1.6 RC2 no problems.

    Just ordered one. £11 for a 2gb micro sd and a Ackard 2i is a pretty good deal.
