I have recently come across a site that is selling M3, Cyclo, R4, and various other carts at really low prices, my question is if it is real or are they scaming people

http://www.bestezbuy.com/?gclid=CJC-rpqZo5MCFQoRswodzwi-ng

i am looking for a card that has decent size with removable SD cards, that can handle SNES and DS games,

with fairly decent compatibility,

if anyone can offer some advice about the site, and or carts to purchase then i would appreciate it,

then one i've been considering is the Cyclo DS only because it supports SNES and DS rom's,

anyway

thank you

even if it is legit, it is in the US. that means it will probably be shut down pretty fast once nintendo finds out and the stock of stuff is confiscated and destroyed as illegal contraband by the police.

You can order something cheap from them to find out if they are legit.

You can also use site review sites to find out if the site is good, bad, scam, etc.

for "gba emulation" the best choices are M3 real full package(GBA-ram package)
or the latest EZ-flash(V i think) with 3in1.
you must always get a slot-2 GBA-ram device to run gba games.

and those 2 come with (optional) GBA-ram device and have software to use it built-in.
but the EZ-flash 3in1 can be used with almost any slot1 device if you use GBA exploader.

for DS/snes there isn't really a "best" card.
all slot1's run DS games fine, and run glitchy snes games using a homebrew emulator.

flash kits are not illegal to buy, own and operate. it is only illegal to have copies of roms that you do not own the original cart for. if you are promoting the illegal use of a flash kit and selling roms along with them, then that would be illegal.

I've purchased 3 CycloDS Evos from realhotstuff.com, and I'm very happy with them. The cards are great, as well as the website. Type in the savings code SAVES and get an additional 5% discount. They have the Cyclo cheaper than anyone else I've found.

Um Nope no it is not illegal to own/operate/Sell
Depending on how you label the devices If you label them saying to download and play commercial rom's/games of course its gonna draw negative attention to the device Not to mention "encouraging Copyright infringement"

This goes back to the VHS Recorder / CD-Burner / DVD Burner

Same principle other than the Propitiatory Cart


And 99% Of cop's could care less about this crap
Hell one cop friend of mine burns dvds for me

And Nintendo screwed themselves on the emulator front by copyrighting there's

Can't be illegal if there is a copyright on it

Looks pretty fake, so try theses sites:
realhotstuff.com
dealextreme.com

And even if its legit, it will be shut down, and if u buy from it, you will be questioned because it is illegal.

You know what?
I'm not gonna argue with a stubborn Idiot that doesn't even have the slightest hint on how copyright work's.

And for your information NO Location was ever raided, And the only thing that got that into your little 5'yr old head. Was the rumor that the R4 factory got shutdown.

And despite Nintendo's pretty good Hand Held System's, Nintendo won't/cant do jack about the flash card site's/store's/hardware. Because the fact of the matter the retailer's/manufacturer's can easily claim Ignorance/"It's Purpose is for home brew", And since I cant find a single copyright for Nintendo's cart design there screwed!

Now mod chip's Are a different story since there circumventing protection.
