    they are the same thing. r4 gets 'official' updates about a week earlier than the m3

    with the ability to use hacked r4 firmware on the M3 simply it really doesnt matter which you choose, you can use the R4 updates on the m3, look around for what ever is cheaper. the only thing that made me buy my m3 simply was it was in stock at the time and the same price as the R4(which wasnt in stock)

    Yeah doesnt really matter which one you get. They are both the same. The only reason you should choose one over the other is the price. If you get an M3 just change it to R4 [​IMG] now some mod close this thread >_>

    There is even a patched version of the lastest R4 firmware which can be used on the M3.

    Thats what im using, like everyone says, they're identical.

    Although the M3 to R4 & vise versa patch works now, the developer of the patch has had to update it to work with some of the new firmware. So if the developer stops updating the firmware patch there may be no more switching between the two.

    M3 can be used instead by R4, but actually, R4 is better for using. I ordered mine at digimartz.com for testing, good item. [​IMG]

    He probably thinks the R4 is superior because they M3 is a clone and it has firmware updates a few days before the M3. I'd say R4 if I had the choice though.
