Hello, I am looking to buy a slot 1 card, I have come down to R4 vs. EZV but I don't know which to choose. I will probably buy 2 of whichever, one for me and one for my GF, so I want to get the best. I have read reviews for both and both seem to have great compatability, can play online WFC, and seem to be good for homebrew as well. EZV got a 8.5 and R4 got a 9.0 -- still too close to choose without more info. What should I buy? R4 or EZV ??? Now, which do you think is better? How do you feel about the following things: 1. Spring-loaded micro slot. I hear the spring on the R4 can break and then you are stuck with a broken R4? The EZV has no spring, but the slot is on the side and not on the top, so it is a pain to always have to take out the whole thing to take out the memory card. 2. Firmware - which firmware has better support, more updates and is easier to use? The user interface which is better? 3. Homebrew/emulators - After reading the reviews it seems both are good here. But, does one have any big advantage over the other for homebrew games and emulators? 4. Price - I can get either one for about $35 from winsunx so the price doesn't matter to me. 5. Durability - Well, EZV looks like it has something sticking out under the sticker correct? R4 is built great, but the spring loader might break? Which do you think will hold up without breaking for longer? Last thing, I see many posts where the R4 USB reader actually destroyed many customers memory cards, is the reader still doing this? Ok, please answer my questions above and give your opinion, what should I buy?
