    Flashcard are so cheap right now that I suggest you buy a brand new one.
    And also, do yourself a favor and get an acekard 2!

    I dont' know if DSTT is good because I don't have one, but there's no difference between a new or used. Maybe there are different revisions of it or something like that but I don't know. Theres only a difference if the DSTT you buy is genuine or fake, fake cards will be "killed" with the newest firmware unless you will use a hacked firmware.

    I have ordered many Acekard 2's from http://www.dealextreme.com/, the shipping is free to Sweden
    and I got it every time so I recommend you to buy from there instead of some scammers selling on
    blocket or any other site... (AceKard 2 is a good flashcart too)

    I placed different orders on DX, too. It's very cheap and free shipping, but you have to wait 2 or 3 weeks for your orders (my last order took 18 days to deliver).

    Definitely a new one. It's not so expensive that you have to go for a second-hand one.

    Though DX has a quite a large selection of items and offers free shipping, I'm not too sure about the quality (legitimacy) of their items.

    But, back to topic, you should get a new one, unless you can find even cheaper used ones (that is in working condition of course!).

    Well no one else has seemed to mention that also buying a used flashcart brings up the risk of it getting bad contacts sooner and not work.
