    i'm gonna order an r4 from gameyeeeah.com.

    im wondering, is $40 is the cheapest price you can get it for in the U.S.?

    also, why do i keep getting security warning from IE7 when i go to gameyeeeah

    At this very moment BambooGaming.com is the cheapest: AUD $57 including shipping. Enjoy!

    Because IE is completely crap, and most websites I use with it give a security warning...
    I mean, Pirate Bay isn't UNSECURE...

    Maybe. It depends on the card, and the site. Many Chinese sites sell the English versions anyway, and if it's an English-language site they should indicate if the card is a Chinese-language version. If you do get a Chinese version, some cards allow you to flash a different language firmware, others don't. I have no idea if the R4 is restricted like that.

    shipping through international air mail is $5.50 on gameyeeeah.com although it takes 12-18 days to arrive.

    there aren't any R4 reviews out that i'm aware of although the R4 seems to be getting good feedback from users.

    i'll let you guys know about the compatibility once i recieve it. i think i might go with bamboogaming.com. does anyone know how long shipping takes from bamboogaming (their website's currently down)

    this is gonna be my first flashcard. WOOT!

    holy crap ... i'm way to impatient to wait 3 weeks!!!

    does anyone know any other store that sells the R4 and doesn't take long to ship?

    divineo.cn ships in 7-14 days to where I live (and they have it in stock, unlike the US division). While it says 7-14, all my packages have taken 9. Shipping is $5.

    well crap, here I figured since it was coming from china directly I thought.. I figured the shipping wouldn't be any cheaper than over at gameyeeeah.... oh well I have been burned by $10!

    >< guess it all evens out I had got a good deal over at amazon on a microSD 1gb, $10 cheaper than what newegg was going to sell me the exact same one.

    And here I don't even own a DS Lite yet. I had sold my old DS a long time ago, back then it had look like the DS scene was going nowhere fast and the PSP was on the up and up and their scene was booming... I always felt like the DS games were better though.

    gameyeeeah has a 3-5 business day shipping option and it is the only option insured. It costs $20 but considering the R4 is just $40 instead of $45 or $49 I didn't complain too much. Although diveno in china is cheaper, but may take longer too.

    oops it is late and I am tired, I though I was responding to last post but I was on page 1 lol....
