    Here's the deal. I've had an M3 Perfect SD for almost 2 years and love it, it has not given me any trouble so I'd like to stick with the M3 name. I've been looking at the Real recently, but there seem to be a lot of problems with it from what I've seen, but I've also seen good things said about it.

    Now the M3 Lite from what I understand, is still a slot-2 which is great, which I'd buy a Passcard 3 with or something (I flashed my original DS with a Passkey 2 back when I got the thing, but I don't want to flash my Lite). First question about this, is, does it use the same software to write ROMs as the original M3 SD did?

    Basically I'm just looking for opinions. Price doesn't really make a difference, I was looking on RealHotStuff and the 2 bundles I'd buy are $20 difference in price (The Lite being more), but I'm just looking for the better quality one overall.

    Any help appreciated.

    It doesn't use the same software to write ROMS because it doesn't need any software. You just copy the .nds files straight onto the microSD.

    The M3 Lite is what I'm talking about, it needs software because it's a slot 2.

    The M3 Lite is just a lite-sized M3 Perfect that eats µSD cards.

    That's what I thought, I just wasn't sure if getting an M3 Real over it would benefit me in any way.

    I can confirm that the m3 real it the best choice!, i have one [​IMG] my friend used to use R4 version 1 but the spring problem of the r4 is so annoying by the time the spring will cut off and you can't inter any SD card to play! [​IMG]

    m3 lite is great until i got an r4 then to m3 simply. but i still have a m3 lite until now. but recently i've been thinking of switching to linux and i can see problems with my m3 lite as far as installing roms to my sd card [​IMG]
