    Hi all,

    I'm looking to get one of these cartridges but am unsure as to which one I should go for. R4 (SDHC version) seems to be the popular one, has been recommended to me and TT is said to be the latest and fastest. I would appreciate any feedback from users of these products and also a reputable place to purchase them online.

    Cheers

    I would recomend Edge or TTDS for price AND usefulness... Real R4 isnt getting new firmwares and even though some clones are decent or good... i would still prefer Edge or TTDS because they have good teams behind them releasing new firmwares when needed.

    BTW... I believe this is the wrong forum to post that question

    TT is not the latest, and R4 is not the popular choice.. I dunno where you get your info from..

    If you want a card that's crammed full of features (such as Real time Guide, Save States, etc..) then go with either Cyclo or Supercard DS.

    If you just want a cheap, simple, card just for playing games, then Acekard 2 or EDGE is the way to go.

    M3 is also a very solid choice, if you go for that one.

    The R4 SDHC Version is a fake. There are too many fake DSTTs on the market, and many people find that their microSD cards corrupt constantly. M3 is quite old, and outdated. Perhaps consider EDGE or Cyclo.

    Well, if he does indeed get it, and it works, it won't matter that it's fake, really. But still, best to go with a card that is more trustworthy.

    It actually will matter. The R4 fakes actually cause a lot of problems.

    M3 Real has served me well. It has its firmware updated quite often, and I have been able to use whatever games and homebrew I want. So far it does everything I need.

    Yea I would go for the CycloDS if you would spend $50-$70 on a card. But if you want the same features go for the Supercard DS One, first cart and still loving it.

    TT is also good but I think Acekard 2 is better.

    I would say M3 Real Perfect bundle, because its a great cart and has basically all the features of the CycloDS with the exception of ingame text reader mainly. M3 Real has Sakura which is great and the english version is coming out soon but in the mean time there is the triple booter.
    If I were you I would avoid getting an R4 or an M3 Simply (are those made anymore?). EDGE and DSTT are nice cheap and durable carts. Also the Supercard DS-1 and AK2 are great choices aswell.

    I think you'd want the DSTT. The R4 SDHC as already mentioned is a fake (if for some reason you DO want the R4, look for the original one), and I actually haven't gotten the chance to use any card from the MS line, so I can't really say if it's better or not.

    DSTT is easy to navigate and simple to use, so from the options you said I'd go for it.

    IMO, maybe when you want more out of flashcarts, that's when you should start hunting for a CycloDS or an EDGE. ^^


    EDIT: I forgot to mention that DSTT also has clones like DSTT ADV and even something that comes in a DSTT box which makes it harder to dstinguish as a fake. If you decide to get it, search around in GBAtemp for a guide on how to tell a fake from a legit one.
