    How well does the DSTT function? I've read some of the reviews between the R4 and DSTT and I would like to go with the TT but I'm not sure as to whether or not if that chip is good. Also is there any bad batches for any modchips in general?

    And for the guys who bought the DSTT what actually came with it? Just the TT chip and a SD reader? Or did it come with those DS Slot 2 cards as well?

    I'm going to buy this off of modchipstore.com as well if you guys could please answer my question.

    *****EDIT*****

    Or which chip should I buy that's worth the money and won't screw me over in the long run?

    Don't get either.

    I have a DSTT. It works fine. But it's not supported officially, so I can't play new games. I suggest you get an AK2i or something like that.

    I reccomend the dstt , me and 3 of my friends have it and it's pretty good for it's price and is compatible with many many games and good speed. It can also use cheats.

    It comes with the sd reader and dstt. I bought my 2gb sd from eBay and my dstt from dealextreme

    We're trying to keep him away from the card, please don't encourage him.

    As said before, Acekard 2i or M3i Zero

    AceKard2i works both with DS lite and DSi correct?

    But what is so unique about that particular cartridge? I haven't really done my fair share of researching into the carts yet because I never have time to actually hop onto a computer and browse through every review. So I was wondering if you guys could enlighten me on the AceKard2i.

    I do see that it is cheaper than the DSTT, but my questions are that:

    -Will it run smoothly without any lags?
    -Am I able to download new games that came out on the released date/download ahead of released date?
    -Will there be any bad batches and whats the % chance that I would get a bad one.
    -Also what sites are reliable that I am able to purchase the carts from?
    -(Whatever else I can think of I'll edit it into here)

    +1 to your +1 too

    I've had a DSTT, iTouch, EZFlashV, and Acekard2 and can definitily say AC2 is the best
    DSTT is outdated
    iTouch is hmm dunno sold it after I got it
    EZFlash takes forever to boot
    So yeah I use my ACekard2 the most.

    AK2i works on both DS Lite and DSi, yes.

    1. Runs perfectly
    2. Likely
    3. You may get a bad card but probably not.
    4. www.dealextreme.com takes awhile, but it's cheap.

    How much memory can the AK2i hold? And also is there a thread that can teach me how to use the cart? I know that I'll have to buy an (x)GB microSD card but I'm not quite sure as to how to operate it.

    How reliable is dealextreme.com?

    It can hold up to a 32 GB MicroSDHC card, but those haven't been made yet.

    DX is very reliable, but it can take awhile to ship and get to where you are.

    DX is reliable. It can use up to 16 gb msd since that's the biggest right now. Possibly can use 32 gb later. Go read the akaio wiki.

    -Depends entirely on the game. It shouldn't lag, though.
    -I don't get your question. Are you asking whether you can run newly games? Of course you can download new games. They just won't work. Mario and Luigi 3 doesn't work.
    -No idea. You're asking a question that no one else can answer. Unless someone buys 100% of all DSTTs ever manufactured, your question cannot be answered. I've bought two so far, and both are working fine.

    What does the AK2i come with in the packaging when I order it from DX?

    The one I ordered recently came with an AK2i and that's it.
