    so my r4 crapped out on me, first it made that funny spring-thing then a mate wanted to repair it.
    now it does not load anymore. but he is going to replace it with a flashkit of my choice.

    should i buy another r4, or go for one of the newer kinds?

    im kind of a power user, if a device has a feature i MUST use it [​IMG]


    im thinking of getting an acekard r.p.g. or cyclo evo.

    If you want features and stuff like that go for cyclo. It has a lot of advanced features, and more incoming. The team listens to their customers as well, and has the most advantage. It just sucks that it's really expensive.

    If cost is not an issue, then there is no reason not to get the CycloDS. It does everything the R4 does and more.

    CycloDS Evolution. If money isn't a factor then it's the perfect flash card.

    SCDS One all the way. A LOT of features, with that "poweruser" look to it.

    Yeah they don't. They replaced the shell and the spring slot with a shell that doesn't have a spring. You just slide the microSD in and pull it out.

    CycloDS Evo. Since you're not paying for it and don't want to be an asshat in price.

    I have had both an R4 (no spring) and a CycloDS, both seem solid.

    Well, I would go for Acekard ( and i will, soon)
    for budget, DSTT is just fine.
    Cyclo Evo is nice too with its "enhanced menu" and RTS and such features.
    but ultimately I would go for Acekard R.P.G any day ( Open source, dual memory, nice menu, so far a great team,great compatibility, need i say more?)

    I had the R4 and moved to the CycloDS and never looked back. It is a killer card!
    Best of luck in your choice.

    From everything I've read, the CycloDS is the best choice. SDHC FTW!

    its not easy to get hold of a cyclo though, from what ive read.
    also the DOA rate of the cyclo is pretty high.
    i think i will go with the acekard.

    thanks to everyone!

    oh. thanks, cool.

    hmm... now is the only question remaining.

    where to buy?

    i wanted to get the acekard from bamboo gaming. any good place for the cyclo?
    also, im euro based, so us-based stores cost me an arm and a leg for shipping.
    the chinese often ship for free though.
