    So I'm assuming that the "R4i Gold" device isn't exactly a direct descendant of the R4 "brand", because that name is kind of sullied nowadays, but I was looking at their site and noticed that in their Where to Buy section they actually link directly to the products on the sellers' sites... Has anyone had a problem with "fakes" from these retailers? Are those links trusted, and does anyone have a specific vendor to recommend purchasing from?

    And is "fake" devices even a thing anymore? I mean it seems like the technology is advanced enough nowadays to be sort of "un-fakeable", at least at a reasonably functional level.

    http://nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149 is a trusted reseller and GBAtemp's sponsor. I'm not sure if fake R4i Golds exist, but there are a ton of "R4" flashcards with a slightly different name, most of them crappy.

    1: I don't belive that Acekard 3D is comming (from the real Acekard team)
    3: Which R4i-SDHC? Do you mean R4i-sdhc.com? They're not bad but nothing special
    4: Do you mean R4i GOLD? The single recommented R4i Gold card is from R4ids.cn.
