    Hi,
    I've owned the R4 for quite a while now, since then a lot of new flash carts have been released.
    I have no intentions of buying a new one (as my R4 gets the job done) however, a friend of mines wants to buy a good flash cart.

    Therefore, whats the best flash cart on the market right now?
    Overall, is mostly for NDS games so a bunch of crazy features are not necessary, all that's required is stability, efficiency, and ease of use (the simpler the better). Price is not really a concern as long is worth it and is reliable.

    Thanks, looking forward to answer.

    The cyclo is the only card I've used, and I can say, its very stable, efficient, and easy to use.

    If you want the best flashcart and don't care about the price: CycloDS Evolution
    If you want the best flashcart but do care about the price: Acekard 2
    If you want a flashcart with onboard NAND memory and if you plan on developing: Acekard R.P.G.
    If you want a flashcart that also offers a Slot-2 (not for free though): EZFlash V & M3DS Real
    If you want a Slot-2 expansion: EZFlash 3-in-1 (GBA, RAM, & Rumble)
    If you want an alternative to the CycloDS Evolution but cheaper and a crappy GUI: SuperCard DS One
    If you want a flashcart that could possible brick your Nintendo DS: R4 DS, R4 III & N5

    Thanks for the reply!
    I will be going with the Acekard 2 or Cyclo DS (still on top eh?)

    Quick question though, how does the Edge compare with the Acekard 2?

    Thanks once again.

    They are very close, I hear all the Acekard 2 has is a lil better menu system, but worse physical build quality while the EDGE is a very sturdy feeling card, I went with the EDGE and have to say it was the easiest upgrade from my old R4DS!! All you really need to do is delete your R4 OS files (technically you don't have to but the moonshell folder will be different for each card), copy your Edge OS files and all off you go, no converting save files, no DLDI worries. Only big change there was is the Themes (skins) since they are the same as a Cyclo DS form, but thats even easy as well!

    Even the Menu System close to the R4DS, still 3 icons on the main menu, just the one usually for booting slot-2 also contains settings/options for:
    Cheat codes (enable/disable)
    LCD Brightness (0-3)
    Language (multi lang support)
    Skin (themes for DS)
    Rumble (enable/disable)
    Boot from Slot 2 (starts pass me mode for gba game)


    The only bad I could find with the EDGE (well at least not documented feature) is the ability to delete files while using the card. Thats not a deal breaker for me though. The R4DS could do it though when you hit the X button looking at files and it was nice feature.
