    Looking to buy a flashcard for my 3DS, I'm considering the R4i Gold 3DS

    I found one UK based on this site: http://www.mini-r4card.co.uk

    Does anyone know if it is reliable or not? if not, does anyone know of a good site, with fast shipping to the UK?

    Thank you.

    Yeah, that's a trusted site as far as many people here are concerned.

    I went with CheapR4.co.uk, it seemed legit and a lot of people from the forums have used it along with good reviews and good ratings on shoptemp, I recently checked my bank and instead of being charged £13.50 (R4i SDHC 3DS) I have been charged £15:45 by a site called Shineinthebox.com, which is a woman's work uniform shop based in America, anyone else had this happen or do they do this to everyone as a way to avoid detection?

    Dude, I really recommend you into buying from zhu zhu china,
    it's much more well known for gbatempers,
    and the site that you showed isn't popular,
    so we can't rate it as good or bad.

    Ah right, I did check ZhuZhuChina but they said on the news page that they couldn't send anything until the 18th congress thing was over and no one knows when it's over, could be a week, could be a month

    ordered from zhuzhuchina a few weeks back. they sent me a dud card. the price to send it back to them is almost the same price as buying another one now. hopefully you don't run into the same problem.

    not to sure if my card was dead but nothing loads on my 3DS (3.0.0 - 6) and with or without a microsd card in it. There site says the card is pre-loaded with the current flast but that may not be the case. I haven't tried the card with a DS yet since I don't have one anymore.
