    I've got a better idea, how about they fix their previous products first before making new ones.

    they should stop selling products under the name "neo".
    to be honest, all their previous products were plain shit.

    The label looks nice, and it promises a lot...

    Oh geez.....

    Well, they finally got their last cart kinda working. That means dump production on it and start a new project.

    I'm still waiting for my SNES, N64, and Genesis flashcart, dammit!

    Talk about market saturation at this point. So many damn flash kits.

    That label looks like it was stolen from www.vgmuseum.com, one of their rotating header banners...

    Even if this one kind of works, the only fact that is called MK5 and they still didn't fix Mk/2/3 feels like a sequel to a super crappy half assed movie.
    Who would want to watch that ? If they would change the card name and sell it trough another company maybe some pour soul might even buy it. But when I see MK and I think about all the bitterness and all the rip-offs on behalf of unaware first-time customers(I was one) I feel like smushing something with an hammer......
    Stay away from that ....... this company deserves to loose all the money that they made on our skins !
    Worst support ever, they keep on lying about fixing older products and keep on producing new ones instead in the hope to remain competitive......
    Unfortunally their advertising is so convincing that their flashcards look so good on paper....and lots of people still falls for it.
    What a shame.

    Whos going to buy a slot 1 solution with built in memory now? They'll probably be rapping you with the price. The 2gb microSD cards will probably be going down in price in a few months when the 4gb microSD cards are released.

    If anyone remembers the Golden Sun Team debacle, it's just another reason why NeoFlash is one of the least trustworthy manufacturers in the business.

    If you don't, basically NeoFlash started a dumping group called Golden Sun Team who dumped new games in an encrypted format which only worked on NeoFlash cards, which boosted their sales, until someone released the encrypting program and then GST mysteriously disappeared.
