    I am planning on buying the Acekard 2i for my 3DS. I have decided to buy from v2watch is that site legit and i think i will just get the 12 dollar no sd card or should I buy it with one?

    sd cards which usually come bundled with cards are not legit. i've read so many times about how the sd card was either fake or caused serious problems. you may be better off getting a trusted sd card from a 3rd party. i can recommend the transcend 8gb class-6 cards. i've used them to debug hundreds of projects and have never experienced an issue.

    check newegg.com for them.

    I've seen that site mentioned a lot, but yeah don't get bundled MicroSD cards from chinese/import shops. Get them from a real supplier, like an actual store or newegg.

    all acekard products support sdhc. sdhc only goes up to 32 gb. 8gb is what i've always used. you can fit a ton of roms, emulation, and homebrew on one.

    Yeah you can usually fit 50-100 games (depending on the size, of course) on average on an 8GB (unless you choose all of the biggest games).

    In my opinion, I recommend Dscardworld.com.

    They answered all of my emails very swiftly and was very patient with all of my questions.

    The acekard 2i works perfectly fine and have great respect for the site.
