    I was looking for something that has extremely good compatibility that rarely has any issues such as not booting or corrupting saves. I'd get a r4 but people say its dead so maybe a M3? I've always had a N-card or a clone so I don't know much about the carts that require a microsd. So Basically What should I get, where, how reliable is it.

    According to what I have read, CycloDS is the best on the market. It costs 52.99 Here and free shipping.

    EDIT: Here's the Review

    I'd love to but its $70 with a sd so its out of my reach, but I'd get it if I could. What the second best option? I read that Edge is a cheaper clone of the CycloDS. Its cheaper and $50.99 with a 2 gb sd all from dealwoot. thoughts? Also Is shipping from deal woot take as long as dealextreme?

    I like how the CycloDS mimics the R4 menu, so it's like two flashcarts in one. [​IMG]

    Get an Acekard 2 form Dealextreme, and with $50 you could get a good microSD too. (and possibly an EZ 3in1)

    It's definitely the best 'cheap' card (much less than a Cyclo)

    Ok so now its either Edge or the Acecard 2. Both are about $50 with a 2 gig kingston from dealwoot. I just want NDS games to work well and without lag. I'm assuming Kingston is a good brand. give me your opinions, thanks! List any know problems or problems you've had with these.

    Save a little money and go with dealextreme, you should be able to get either of those cards for a little over 30 w/ 2 gigs.

    I believe all the Acekard 2 problems are fixed, and the Acekard menu is really good.

    if you can't afford CycloDS then EDGE is the 2nd best choice.

    Get a Cyclods

    If you can't, then get a SUPERCARD

    It's the next best thing after Cyclods

    WHAT??!!??? =/

    DON'T GET A ACEKARD 2 EDGE OR SUPERCARD! Get a CycloDS Evolution from Dealwoot, it ships fast (2-5 days), DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT, BUY A microSD FROM DEALWOOT! There's a VERY cheap 2GB one here. Only 7$! That's only 60$ for a CycloDS and 2GB card. You WILL NOT be disappointed with the Cyclo it is the best and they will support their product for a lifetime. Do not get any inferior ones, spend a extra 20$ for a LIFETIME of savings (money and mental)...

    Yeah.
    AK2 + Ez3in1 + 1GB Kingston Japan = $50 approx.
    If you don't want Ez3in1, upgrade memory card to like 4GB.
