    SInce I was getting very little replies in an earlier post I decided to change the post's title...hopefully now I'll get more info on this, you see various members on these forums advice to purchase from that site, but on closer inspection...it contains many bootlegs, it doesn't inspire much trust...

    Pretty sure there aren't any clones of the SCDS2.

    Lightake is legit however their suppliers do tend to mix in clones together with the legit batch of shipment because of money reasons which is very common.

    I say that because I got a clone iEDGE from them and I figured out it was a clone after wasting a week with it.

    They are awesome in products and support but you might just end up unlucky if you get a clone. I say go with them though.

    I already bought the DS Two from Lightake unfortunately....this was 5 days ago, and then I noticed all the clones around the website, as well as the suspicious unexpensive "original games" from Nintendo, which were obviously bootlegs...I should've known that anything that ships for free comes with a risk, especially if it's something from china.

    welcome to chinese webshops, they all sell shady stuff - but that's not to say all of the stuff they sell is shady. given that every flash cart on the market is made in some dodgy chinese factory and either a) sold from china or b) exported for sale outside of china - the chances of getting clone are about the same whether you buy from lightake (or any other chinese webshop) or locally. that said, there aren't any fake scds2 for sale anywhere so you're fine.
