    I'm not sure where to get an r4i gold 3ds card from, nds-card.com is gbatemp's sponsor, but /r/flashcarts doesn't have it on their sidebar but they do recommend dsflashcart.com. Which is safer, and which ships faster?

    I ordered two things from dsflashcart in my lifetime. Both arrived in exactly 7 days with no problem. :)

    I would not go with dsflashcart.com. I've read stores in the past of people getting the wrong cards. Especially with the AceKard 2i I think. Probably not a trustworthy site. Sure you'll get a cart but it may not be what was advertised. Perhaps this only impacted certain carts. Not sure. :P

    It took about two weeks for me to receive my flashcart from nds-cart.com so they seem fine. :D

    Just a bit to the right, or was left...
    Go with the gbatemp sponsor, nds-card.com :-)

    Under the Acekard 2i page on dsflashcart, they mention that the AK2i is very outdated and hardly works anymore, and that they'd ship you an R4 Gold RTS instead.

    I'll read up on it

    EDIT: the only thing is it's 5 years old, it may no longer be accurate.

    Well, can't argue with that.

    Well, I read the comments on the review that was linked, and they are sketchy. Especially the way they edited someone's review to cover up bad feedback. The shipping may be slower on nds-card but 8 think I'll go with it instead. Thanks for your input everyone.

    nds-card, it's more reliable and sponsors GBAtemp.

    Ordered from both. Both took about a week to arrive, even though nds-card ships from China. I would just use nds-card.

    Between insane and insecure
    I would always suggest nds-card.com. It's not only the Temp's sponsor, but an extremely trusted site.
    I've actually bought from them several times in the past and recently got an Ak2i from them.
