    I have a DS Lite and was looking to go into the M3 family.

    I am debate whether to buy a M3i Zero at this store.

    or a M3 DS Real at the same store here

    What are the pro and cons of each. And which one would you recommend? [​IMG]

    If you plan to upgrade to a DSi in the future, get a M3i Zero
    If not, get a M3 Real
    Simple as that

    What he said...

    Also, if you don't like how the M3DS Real auto-boots into its menu, then I suggest that you choose the M3i0. However, with the M3i0 the game logo for it will be Danny Phantom.

    As Gagigagu said, if you plan to get a DSi in the future consider the Zero. If not get the Real.

    Should note that with the Real it autoboots into the M3 but on the Zero you have to click it like you would a game every time you power on.

    The Danny Phantom logo is only there if you have the 1.4 F_Core.dat. If you use the 1.0 F_Core.dat, it will be an M3 Logo.

    True... Problem is that it might be harder to find the old firmware rather than the new one.

    Well Im not sure if Ill ever get a DSi. Don't really see the point, unless Im missing some sort of amazing feature that DS Lite doesn't have?

    I personally bought the M3i while still using the DS lite so I can be futureproof'd in the case my lite breaks, which I will then get a DSi. They're basically the same card but the M3 Real pack comes with the GBA expansion pack if you intend on using it.

    All the homebrew I've ever tried running works just fine on Sakura.
