    I say go with the R4i Gold from nds-card.com, it's GBAtemp's official sponsor, so buying from them supports the Temp! :yay:

    Are you suggesting this because they sponsor GBAtemp or because the R4i Gold 3DS is better than the Acekard 2i

    Both.
    I have used both the Acekard 2i and R4i Gold for quite some time now and really have to say the R4i Gold is a bit better than the Acekard 2i.

    You have to admit that R4i Gold(r4ids.cn) can support 3DS V4.2.0-9 and ak2i can not till now.

    Not to mention Wood R4 from YWG and the card's firmware R4i Gold team update the fastest. As well the R4i Gold doesn't have that annoying connection problem the Acekard 2i has.

    Absolutely right, that's also why i shifted to the R4i Gold 3DS(www.r4ids.cn) from AK2i. The former has more faster updating, better quality, and even more cheaper..

    Also the R4i Gold doesn't have the contact issues that the Ak2i has.

    Yes, some models do have the issue where they stick inside the cart slot a bit, but this is a minor issue compared to the Ak2i's contact issue, which will often freeze games.
