    SCDStwo or Acekard 2i are the standard suggestions, both with near perfect compatibility only the dstwo has A LOT of extra features like a gba emulator and an e-reader/media player, while the ak2i ONLY plays games but is roughly 1/3 the price.

    Everything is already mentioned!

    I own both Acekard 2i and Supercard DSTWO

    Here is a very very veryyyyy small comparing chart I just made:

    DSTWO:

    +Gamboy Advance emulator WITHOUT slot 2 device
    +Avi player
    +Better Super Nintendo emulator(SNES)
    +Nearly every rom works without problems!
    -It sucks your battery because of the built in CPU.
    -Built quality is not that great

    Prices around the $30

    Acekard:

    +Great and cheap card
    +Great competilety
    -No extra emulators DSTWO has. Only the standard emu's.

    Prices around the $15

    For the price, the build quality on the ds2 should be good.

    You mention DSTwo build quality as a bad thing and not for the Acekard? Honestly the AK2i is a great card for its price, but the build quality is the worst I've seen for many years (lots of problems with contacts, shifting PCB, etc). The DSTwo is built quite well considering other options.

    Never the less on topic: Get a DSTwo if you happen to want to play emulated GBA and SNES on a DS(i). If you have a DS Lite, I'd go with an R4/AK2i + Ez 3in1. You'll get perfect GBA emulation and all DS games work well with AKAIO/WoodR4.

    Inb4 DSTwo emulation rocks: PSPs can emulate games quite a bit better than the DS could (ever). Considering the prices of used PSPs and the price of the DSTwo (especially if you want to buy it in the states or something), I'd recommend getting a PSP for a handheld console with emulation.. That's what I did after having a DSL/DSi XL for 4 years.
