    Has anyone had good experiences with ModchipsDirect? I'd like to purchase the Gateway 3DS from them.

    Bought some modchips, and the gateway from them. And it's great so far

    There's no other place you should order from if you live in the US to be honest.

    Awesome, I think I'll be purchasing a Gateway 3DS from them especially since they have a 6 month warranty and are based in the US, thanks!

    I'm not telling you that as a MCdirect customer, but as an NDS-card customer who made a big mistake.

    I'll be lucky to get my card by Halloween.

    So it seems people prefer ModchipsDirect if their in the US, any one else have an opinion/suggestion on flash cart sellers in the US?

    Yeah I like that they are based in NJ(I think). It looks like I'll be going with ModchipsDirect, they offer 6 month warranty and it seems some 'Tempers have had a good experience with them.


    edit: Man they only take credit card, no paypal...

    I know i'm reviving an old card, but in response to DigitalDeviant's remark about them not having paypal, that is very common. If paypal gets wind of one of their merchants selling anything that could be used for illegal purposes (especially mod chips, flash cards, or other backup/homebrew related hardware) they immediately suspend the merchant's account, freezing the funds currently inside that account indefinitely.

    Bit of opinion here, but you shouldn't support paypal, they are a bad company owned by ebay, and they do a lot of things with money that would get a real bank shut down.
    I'm just a bit suprised that none of the modchip/flashcard suppliers use bitcoin, what with its ease of use, difficulty to trace, close to zero fees, and irreversible transactions.
    But that is something for another forum topic I suppose.
