    Hello -
    I've been lurking in these forums for awhile, and have been waiting for someone to post an Acekard 2i vs. R4i-SDHC article, but I decided to stop waiting and just do it myself. Anyway, I have an Acekard 2i right now and have been using for a week (since I picked up my DSi). So far I love it - altho I have noticed it locks up semi-frequently in games.

    Today I ordered the R4i-SDHC from gamekool and I should have it Wednesday. Once I get it, I'll put them both through some general tests and post my semi review/versus article. If there is anything specifically you'd like to know about either one, post it here and I'll be sure to try it out. I'm excited to get the R4i-SDHC and check it out!

    ANY type of R4 is a wast of money
    there all Clones or Fakes
    the REAL R4 team is LONG gone

    Acekard 2i will be a Better buy
    or
    wait for a new set of Dsi cards to come out that could has Dsi mode unlocked

    The Hyper-R4i also looks nice
    Wanna buy that one too for another comparison? [​IMG]

    I hope you'll like your R4i, and I'm looking forward to see what card will win [​IMG]

    Yeah - I have to say it looks pretty legit. It may be a clone, but their website looks like its updated pretty frequently: http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/indexe.asp

    I might buy that Hyper-R4i too! lol (but I'll have to wait till my next pay day!)

    Just because it's a clone doesn't mean it sucks. It looks promising so far. Hell, the R4-III still gets updates.

    My DSi is updated to firmware 1.3E. I have rec'd an R4i and confirm it works 100% perfectly in the DSi.

    Go on the R4i website and you will see for yourself that the card is supported with updates.
