    wow, you save 2.10 with that coupon, for sure not the best deal, its alot cheaper with www.dealextreme.com but shipping takes awhile (its free so its fine with me)

    As for the R4, its a great card, but showing age and unsure if the R4 team is gonna release any new updates for it. It doesn't have SDHC support also, another negetive for the card. But you can buy 2 kingston 2GB Japans cheaper than 1 4GB SDHC card (probably lossing more space with 4gb than a 2gb also after format)

    Bamboogaming had them in stock with free postage the last time I looked. The shipping is slow but its probably the cheapest.

    I wish dealextreme had the M3 in stock, I'd buy another... even though yes I know for various reasons the R4 is better to have. [​IMG]

    I've never had a problem with the R4.

    Great slot-1 and it's real cheap.

    I would buy an N-Card or clone.
    On my R4 with 1GB kingston japan, I still get slow downs on Zelda:PH, but on my N-Card, it always plays fine.

    I don't have any Zelda slowdown, but I have a 2GB Japanese Kingston.

    Over there.
    R4/M3DS Simply is a good cart for beginners, cuz of its ease of setup and features. If that's your case, go for the R4.
