    i hear cyclo is the best of all of the carts but reading the m3 real review i'm not to sure of the cyclo being the best anymore.

    if there is another cart better than these 2 say what it is but so far these look like the best 2 around.

    alright i forgot to say that i already have a cyclods but i sold it for double the price that i bought it for and now i want to know if i get a m3 real will my ds games be able to use the same saves from the cyclods on the m3 real because i feel like i have to test out a flash cart i never used before even if its the save exact thing as the cyclods and i seen m3 real is cheaper by about $6 when i buy it from dealextreme and it is bundled with the gba cart.cyclods is $48 on dealwoot if anyone needs to know.

    First of all, the reviews in the site are a tad outdated. They don't list many features added in the updates that were released after the reviews being published updates, like Text Reader for the CycloDS.

    That said, you can't go wrong with either of them. AFAIK, the CycloDS has some more features than the M3DS Real, although the latter has the ability to natively boot the firmwares from the M3 Sakura and iTouchDS. They are really tied, I guess. I have a CycloDS and I love it to death. I don't regret buying this cart instead of another, even if it's a bit on the pricey side...

    Cyclods has had features that M3 Real has lacked for a long time, but now M3 Real should have all the same features. People have complained that M3 Real browses files slow and I haven't heard about the Cyclods having that problem. I own two M3 Reals and they are good and I also still use my M3 Simply because I had it out already. They both work fine for me, but the M3 Real has more features than the previous M3 product.

    If you don't mind spending an extra $20-$30, that's how much more the CycloDS will set you back. Personally I don't need one.
