    hello,

    just wanted to share my thoughts on peachds. i ordered a sky3ds from them on friday and arrived on monday. the person i dealt with was very responsive to my emails and was incredibly courteous so i felt pretty impressed with the customer service.

    the sky3ds was packaged nicely in a bubble-wrap envelope and the unit was not damaged at all during transit. with the fast shipping, fast response to my emails, and immediate tracking number, i will highly recommend anyone who wants to purchase from a US seller.

    peachds is legit. 10/10~

    I put in an order on Wednesday. I'm looking at a Saturday delivery. (I know this is my first post and that makes me untrustworthy, but I thought I'd offer up my 2 cents.)

    Quick fix: nicely, gently, politely.
    Plan B: just be rude.

    I received my package today after a bit of holiday delay. So far so good on the installation, can provide package opening photos on request (I'd have to edit out some info). Everything seems legit, the official update package installed to the card, so I'm guessing it's not a clone. The price was right, payment was easy, if a bit sketchy due to the nature of the certain payment processor's policies. So far I'm pleased.

    i decided to hit them up as the R4iSDHC was cheap enough (i wanted for awhile to get a DS-Mode card that ran on 9.XX 3DS FW to replace and retire my DSi and AK2i) the option of adding a 16GB microSD was nice enough though i didnt exactly need it as the 4GB one in my AK2i was good enough for the games i have on it including the collection of emu's that run as-is.

    After payment as i rushed it not wanting netflix to to take a chance and hit my paypal (as i was paying netflix via my PayPal Debit Card.) while i was ordering, i didn't realize paypal atfirst defaulted once again to my old address (despite that after numerous times i've removed that address and set my current one as the only one.) I panic'd a lil and contacted the one behind orders via forum + the help contact email, i received a quick response and they easily corrected the shipping address.

    a bit of delay on shipping wasn't bad but considering i'm used to the usual 4 to 5 business day wait on anything from Cali to Michigan, Shipping's rather fast compared to most resellers.

    well just had a bit of bad luck, w/ the card ruined by rain as the bubbler envelope they sent it in was opened along delivery, the one in charge/ the customer help Email @ PeachDS prettymuch told me all sales are final (to be precise i was told nothing can be done outside buying a new card from them, so while its not thier fault or mine they could of come half way and refunded half the price. guess come monday i'll contact paypal support and see what could be done in getting a refund.)

    if you want to take a chance yea they're fast it came USPS First-class and they were responsive when a wrong address was given by paypal. so theres that, but if you get a bumm cart/bad MicroSD/stolen or damaged due to weather/Mail delivery faults. seems like your SOL. i'd still if i want a Sky3DS go w/ them but seems like your better off elsewhere for a DS-Mode cart.

    File a report with the police and USPS if someone tampered with your mail.

    edit: the shipping enevelope matter's being resolved however out of this while at PeachDS they did refuse a replacement card or a refund i had to take it to Paypal. the refund got issued befor i went to bed and in the time between then and now, they demanded half of it back for the microSD, then accused me of stealing because i didnt respond ASAP. so now i wouldn't recommend PeachDS at all.

    Wow I'm surprised they're taking it further. The selling of flashcarts is against Paypal's terms of use. If Paypal finds out PeachDS is using Paypal to conduct payments for flash carts I'm pretty sure they're screwed.
    On a side note, I ordered a flashcart from them on either the 26th or 27th. Payment went through fine and all. They shipped it on I believe the 28th. Haven't received it yet and the last time it was scanned was the 29th. Getting kinda worried but I'm sure it'll be fine. I think it's weird that there's no eta on the delivery. I'm in Texas and it's being shipped from California, so I guess it just takes a while. Sucks since I was expecting it sooner and it was actually ordered because I didn't feel like waiting for my Gateway to come in from Cyprus via playmods.co.uk. Not PeachDS's fault, though. They shipped it but it's just USPS not updating the tracking which makes me paranoid/nervous haha
