    Make sure not to buy from mrmodchip.co.uk, I have read many reports and personally find him to be a crook that serves to steal money of the UK citizens. I don't live there so sorry I can't give you a positive suggestion.

    i got from dealextreme, very nice people. i've ordered 5 R4's from them (for friends and gifts etc) all work no probs. and i've talked with their customer care, VERY nice. they lowered the price AFTER i bought it, and i emailed them about it. without me actually asking for them to give me the money, they refunded me instantly.

    I went with DealExtreme. I got the R4 shipped with a Kingston 1GB card for 42 bucks. I think that deal is hard to beat, but the wait was a bit longer since it came from Hong Kong.

    If you want fast, reliable and uk based then I'd always reccomend www.cheapmod.net, he ships from the uk and is very reliable.

    If you don't mind waiting a bit longer on the postage then some of the suggestions above might save you a couple of quid. I've always used www.gameyeeeah.com for cheap and slow to the uk.

    I can recommend Winsunx. It all went fine with me. I bought 10 bundels of R4 English version with a 1 Gb Kingston micro sd. 41.80 dollars a piece.

    psxbox is ok to. A R4 is 27,50 dollars a piece. 17,90 dollars for a 1 GB sandisk micro sd. The service of psxbox is very good. I bought in septembre last year a g6 lite. The gba menu was faulty. I could not see the pictograms in de gba menu. So idecided to turn it back last week. They made no problem. They send me a EZflas 5 with 2 expansion packs and 1 micro sd kard of 1 gb.

    Very nice. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    They'll more than save you a couple of quid - most of them are around half the price if you don't mind waiting a week or so.
