    Hello! im relatively new to this site and just bought a ds(like 3 hours ago) and i began looking at the dstt threads. there are so many discussions about fakes that im wondering if there is a site that is 100% legit. is DX the closest thing? is it kinda just a flip of the coin?

    Those are 100 % real but are a little pricey but if you want a real card.

    I've heard about DX, they sell don't sell them 100% legit but they sell them at a seriously extremely low price. If they sell you a fake one, they'll give you a real one in replacement.

    [​IMG] DSTTs probably aren't the best cards these days though.

    In my opinion the best right now would be the EDGE, in both functionality, build quality, and price.

    there are no fake EDGEs as of yet, and you can get them at Dealextreme.com. Shipping usually takes forever, but its free and you cant beat the price. also you might not get the Triangle box that it comes in, if that matters to you. and if it does you can get the edge at modchip.ca for a bit more

    Many people believe the Edge to be a clone of the CycloDS.

    The Edge is a good flash cart, but I prefer the Acekard 2 over the Edge. It has a much better menu system, and it's cheaper. There are no clone Acekard 2's so you're pretty much guaranteed of getting a real one from dealextreme.com where they're only about $5 more expensive than the DSTT, yet have one of the nicest menu systems of any flash cart at any price.

    The only advantage I can think of that the Edge has over the Acekard 2 is that it's a little sturdier. If you're prone to stepping on your flash cart or throwing it across the room, you might consider the Edge. Otherwise, get an Acekard 2.

    As to what makes a good cart: Well, almost every flash cart can sort games alphabetically and let you organize your games into folders as a bare minimum. Unfortunately, the DSTT does neither, and its menu is laggy when you have a lot of games. The Acekard 2 and Edge can also both load GBA games directly from the menu (if you have a slot2 GBA expansion cart like the EZFlash 2-in-1). The Acekard 2 also has a very responsive and pretty menu system, and lots of additional features such as multiple game save slots, the ability to copy/cut/paste/delete files, etc.
