    I am leaning towards an R4 but I can only seem to find a M3 Simply in the UK. Are there any differences between these cards and are the firmware updates for the R4 more frequent? And is the CycloDS better? Thanks for any help, reason why I am buying one is because my G6 Real corrupted last night and its not something I am prepared to put up with.

    For the probably 1000th time, M3Simply = rebadged R4DS.
    Good luck finding one.

    I have found an M3 Simply, their still availiable in the UK. My main concern is how frequent the updates are, is the R4 team more frequent with them?

    You can patch R4 firmware to work with a M3 Simply.

    R4's firmware updates are tiny bit faster than the M3 Simply, but the firmwares are identical to each other.

    Instead of M3 and R4, I'd go for the CycloDS. Not only does it support those SDHC cards, it also already has Wii connectivity, and a GREAT Support team. If you even get a reply from the R4 team, you're lucky.
