    Hi,
    Is there any advantage for the M3 perfect over the GBA pack?
    I think that the only advantage the M3 lite perfect had (as a slot 2 card) was the built in RTC. But doesnt the GBA pack have that as well?

    So, what are the advantages of the Perfect over the GBA

    the MicroSD slot, which provides additional storage. The M3 Perfect, unlike the GBA Pack, is a standalone device with boot code and a memory slot, which is the reason for its price.

    If you have an option of getting yourself M3 Perfect, really..get it..
    It's great, boots GBA games faster, you can use it as standalone device (as Fat D mentioned)..and adds extra up to 2 GB of additional space..(depends on size of microSD card you decide to buy)..
    Remember, it's not SDHC compatible, so you can't use cards over 2 GB in size..

    Thanks for the replies guys.
    But whats the use for a microSD slot if the GBA pack uses the microSD in slot one?
    I guess thats whats you mean by standalone device? (no need for slot 1?)
    Last question I have is that, in terms of GBA compatibility, GBA pack has it all? Cause I think RTC is the only thing missing from other cards right?

    The reason is that I already have my GBA pack on the way, and I did find the m3 perfect in bamboogaming.com, but I'm not sure if its worth ordering

    If you have money, it's well worth ordering..
    Check the review of it:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=37063

    You use it in the way, that it's booted from slot 1 (into slot 2), and then you run GBA, NDS, multimedia, or whatever you want from it..
    It has perfect GBA compatibility (said to be best in market)..

    And the fact it uses it's own microSD is great because it doesn't take you space off your slot 1 cart!
