    AFAIK, nobody here got the R4 yet. I'd suggest waiting for the official reviews from Shaun and Costello, before you make your order [​IMG]

    we received our R4 units a day ago, and I'll answer your questions:
    - there is NO lag in castlevania [​IMG]
    - the compatibility seems good so far, we haven't found any incompatible game

    about the microSD card you're linking, I don't know what to say.
    we've got a Sandisk Ultra II, which is supposed to be very fast (although the acekard has slowdowns with it)
    I can't really help on that point unless you find a Sandisk Ultra II of course!

    R4 is one of the most promising slot1 carts, I hope it's review comes up soon. I'm also looking forward to the new M3 cart, i dunno about the new slot 1 SuperCard though, first impressions from some people on this forum are mixed. I guess it all comes down the the final review and the last word from GBAtemp [​IMG]

    Honestly, all these carts are pretty much the same. THey are all touting the exact same feature set. As a result, I honestly dont know which one to get. I want my SC cuz I'm familiar with the brand. I also wouldn't mind having this one. It looks cool and the price is definitely right!!! [​IMG]

    I agree. The deciding factor for me - if all the reviews are pretty much the same - will be who I think will support the card the longest.
    I would think a well-established company (like M3 or Supercard) will support the card for a very long time.
