    edge is fast with startup and M3 not.
    Edge haves better compactibatity than M3REAL
    So... EDGE ... but M3 real you can use the triple boot (sakura,M3REAL and I touch)
    So... I think if you use M3REAL with sakura is M3REAL Better [​IMG]

    this is what i was thinking but how about the built quality ? i like the fact the EDGE microsd slot has no spring.

    IMO the microsd spring/no spring doesn't really make a difference. They both hold the microSD so why does it matter?

    Anyways, I think you should go with the EdgeDS personally because it has a good GUI and compatibility for games, homebrew, and music/video.

    I like the M3 real myself - and the fact that it has a spring-loaded slot makes ALL the difference. I have an EZ-Flash V, and even with long nails have trouble pulling the tiny microSD card out. I mainly play commercial NDS games by myself, and have never had any trouble with the M3 Real doing that.

    the old r4 spring is nothing compared to the new springs that all new carts come with for the most part

    Why don't you get CycloDS instead on EDGE?

    i dont fancy paying $30 more for features i dont really use like real time save..etc,i have owned Supercard dsone & never bothered to use any of the extra features it had over other normal cards so EDGE is perfect for me & price is nice too (if u buy from DX).
