    Hello all,

    There are 5 M3 Real products @ DX...


    The $13.12 version (confirmed fake): http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.21090

    The $18.12 version: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2728

    The $18.38 white Chinese version: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.9023

    The $24.15 white Chinese version: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.7765

    The $34.33 version with GBA expansion: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.14165


    Has anyone bought any of them? And can anyone confirm if one is a real OEM one...


    Kind regards and happy gaming!

    Well - I have bought many from DX and never had an issue - the top one is a fake, AND they tell you that it is (more than most sites do), the second one down $18.12 is the genuine article for EUR/US the bottom one is also the genuine article (with the GBA expansion slot 2)

    The only issue I have had with DX is the length of time to delivery, the quickest was 9 days but the longest was 27 (if you ignore the one that they refunded after a month as they could no longer get the item).

    Hey there!

    Thanks for the advice... I was hoping the $18.12 version would be real... it just confused me that the $34.33 one with GBA expansion has a black miniSD reader, and the $18.12 one has a blue miniSD reader... odd... [​IMG]

    Don't get excited by it showing the nice blue one - I have had 3 types of card reader with M3 Real, but they usually supply the black one, the others just turn up when they are short. Pity as the black one is crap quality!

    those pics are outdated

    they dont come with CD's anymore
    they replaced the microsd card readers with a sandisk micromate knockoff (still junk though) now

    you would also get a side loaded me real now (where the microsd card goes, instead of the top)
