    I ordered a R4DS last week from: http://echostore.com/r4ds.html

    It came today, here's what it looks like:
    [​IMG]

    Some differences that can be seen are:
    + R4DS is in a black case, instead of white
    + Silver microSD card reader, instead of a clear plastic one

    That's all. [​IMG]

    P.S.: The last batch looked like this:

    Hmm, I ordered about a week ago too, but from dealextreme. I was kinda hoping for a white case. How's the transfer speed on that new reader ? Does the microSD slot mechanism work well? Any fit issues ?

    I ordered some and I got em two days ago from winsunx. They've got black cases, but the card readers are clear. I wanted a white case. [​IMG]

    Bought my one from a store in Hong Kong, Micro SD reader is WAAAAY different to the one you have and everything was in chinese.... luckily I had the first PCB design so I could change it to english or even an M3 Simply. I don't like the reader that came with it and I always use a micro SD adapter and then put it into my card reader instead.

    You can have my black one if you want. I'm in Lansing Michigan, in the off chance that you're somewhere nearby. [​IMG]

    If anyone of you guys were jonesing for a white case, let me know... Itll be rough going without my R4 for a few days, but I'd gladly swap my white for someones black.... I'm in Oklahoma, if you wanna judge shipping time. Probably wouldnt be more than a day or two sending around the US [​IMG]

    EDIT:

    Just PM if you are interested in a swap

    I moved out of Michigan a few years back. Lansing was about an hour from where I lived. Now, its quite a bit farther than that. I hate Michigan [​IMG]

    just got mine a few days ago, and it's the same as the OP has pictured. I would have liked a white case, rather than the black, since I have a white dsl. Other than that, it's perfect.

    My microSD reader came completely apart a few mins ago lol. i was able to put "humpty" back together again, and it's still working.

    I got my R4DS from kicktrading couple of weeks ago and it's a white one. For those who got the white version, what kind of USB microSD card reader do you have? The one I have is in a transparent black colour with "Trans Flash" written on it. It doesn't look anything like the one on the R4DS website.
