just asking how long does r4ds lasts
you can't really say it's an electronic device.
It's really random. For the spring model, some springs fail after weeks, some work for months. But it should take very much longer for the electronics to fail.
Whats the main reason the R4 usually breaks for? the spring or just some random technical malfunction?
Dunno, but my R4 has been here for the past year, and its still working perfectly
It has only crashed 3 times playing a game, and that was usually fixed by blowing on the contacts of the R4.
Its still working perfectly after one year, and I'm very happy with it.
I dunno maybe for ever and ever , I used m3 simply about half of year and selled it to another user, and he have no problems with it (assuming that r4 is m3simply clon everything should be fine).
It depends how you use it.
R4 does not have any battery.
The only problems would be lense or breaking the microSD spring(V2 is not anymore spring loaded, so shoudnt be a problem).
I could have used mines for more than 2-3 years, but I havent got the R4DS anymore.
i got my r4 about a year ago; no problems at all.
imo the best flashcart you can get.
now just give me a r4 that supports micro sdhc carts and im set for the future
Ive had mine for 9 months with no problems (except for the fact that TeamR4 is pretty much...DEAD)
Ive switched to the CycloDS ONLY because of the down-to-earth nature of their staff. CycloDS FTW.
I bought my R4 about a month after it came out, and haven't had any problems. I once had a cat pull the card out without pushing down, but that didn't f$#k it up. Best game investment I have made.....
It works just as long as how much the user takes care of it.
If you treat it like a baby, it probably won't break in a long time.
Both my Spring model and springless model have been fine. I've had my old model for about 5 months.
R4 IS THE ORIGINAL, M3 DS Simply is the "clone"!!
Want mroe proof?? R4 have earlier the updates!
Mine is beginning to become bad loading.
I takes like 10 blows to get it working now.
My M3Simply has 1 year.. no problems..
Quote from this topic
I dont have nothing for r4ds it is a good clone
None of them are clones, they are developped in the same factory.
Easy... it's lifetime warranty unlike a PS2 (hate the 2 yr modchip)
what in the hell are you talking about?
and SKH times in which stuff gets updated has nothing to do with cloned hardware.
either way, i've had an m3 simply for quite some time now and its working superb still. although i quit using it about a week ago when my m3ds real arrived at my doorstep
gave 3 R4's for xmas to some friends/family and they are all working well still as well. as nero said the lifetime has more to do with how well you treat and take care of the cards...
