    My Chinese R4 FINALLY came from dealextreme today after 2.5 weeks. It's so small and light!
    Exact same package size as my microSD card from another site came in... wtf! [​IMG]

    I was kinda expecting more but... I guess everythings in there! CD, usb reader, actual R4DS, tiny box.
    lol its ironic how on the gbatemp review for ezflash v cart they said it was only the cart in a huge tin... and r4 with all this stuff came in a tiny parcel! [​IMG]

    O and on a sidenote 100th post [​IMG]

    Hehe, I remember getting that tiny EZFA box, at the time I thought CRAP!, they haven't sent me through everything! But it was all good.

    My little brother got an R4 from Dealextreme just yesterday. The package said "LED Flashlight"... I was hoping they really sent us a flashlight! [​IMG]

    My EZFlash IV package was puny. Just a bit bigger than my R4. But then the EZFlash does not include a CD or anything, just an SD reader.

    No matter what, the AceKards packaging has to be the smallest package I've ever seen.

    EDIT: I just realized, if someone took this whole thread out of context they'd think we were talking about asian penis'.

    Yea, I still have my EZFA box around here somewhere. And yea, it comes with that cable, it had to. That's the specific cable for the EZFA. I still play with that cart to this day. One of the best I've ever had for any system.

    I still have the cart... but lost the cable.

    Anyone know where I might be able to get a replacement?

    yeah. they do that to get past customs w/o any hassle. not to mention, they can get away with it, bc they "started" the website w/ the Dex flashlight (which has DX on it) lol, ironically which is like for another company or something.

    They probably write LED flash light to get it through customs with as little tax as possible.

    EDIT- wrathek beat me to it [​IMG]

    No, The reason is that if dealextreme ships like the $159 iFone and put on the package the actual price and name people may steal it so this is the safest way to transfer there products to there customers
