    Right NOW ive ordered a AceKard 2i from Real Hot Stuff

    Right now im scared that this is a scam because ive spend 30 dollars on it :'(

    Is this legit?
    Real?

    How long does it take to ship from USA to Canada?

    im really scared considering its not in my area and it will not ship fast
    also i hope those reviews on the other people are legit =/

    They are a legit site (I have never ordered from them before, but I have friends who have)
    If you live in America it shouldn't take more than a few days, two weeks tops to get to your house.

    I only recommend to use it if you are in the US
    they are based in NJ and have very quick shipping (1-3 days)
    I dont know about shipping to different countries though

    Only thing to be scared of is Canadian Customs potentially seizing your package. It shouldn't be an issue though, as RHS doesn't use big, obvious "There's a flash cart in here!" sign on their packaging.

    RHS is fine despite what a certain member here will tell you (I expect him to arrive here shortly), so let me just get that out of the way now...

    RHS once unknowingly sold fake Acekard 2s. RHS was accused of selling fake Acekard 2s, RHS then denied it, thinking they were being sold real ones from the real company. The "real" company was an offshoot of the original company that started making their own clone cards. RHS was informed of this and quickly changed their stance, and proptly refunded or replaced the card of anyone who claimed to have a fake card. End of story, and everyone lived happily ever after.

    When posting in a forum where your post count goes up, please put more in your post than just a quote.

    Anyway @OP, you've got nothing to be afraid of.

    I bought a R4, 3 Acekard 2i's (one just about 5 minutes ago), and a 3-in-1 from them. Only issue I had was that they sent me the wrong 3-in-1 size but they just sent me the right size one and were very understanding. Their prices are a bit much but their locality (I get my packages in 1-2 days since I live in NJ) and service is great.

    EDIT: If you're wondering about the Acekards, I got one for myself, one for my dad, and one for my friend (the most recent one).

    EDIT 2: And at least 2 of those 3 Acekards are real, the third one is still in transit.

    They're legit. My aunt ordered an R4 from there for her daughter and I got my Supercard DSTwo from there. Don't worry!

    If it wasn't clear before, yes they sold fakes in the past, they no longer sell fakes now.

    If you live in Canada why is your country icon USA?
    and wtf are you talking about your part of the country is going on strike?

    And from everywhere I hear RHS is legit so stop crapping your pants dude.. seriously.

    1. RHS will get your card fast because all they use as a label is "PC Peripheral" or something of the sort.

    2. People need to stop freaking members out by stating that RHS isn't legit just because for a short period of time they sold fake Acekards. For the record, it wasn't RHS's fault and that issue has been cleared up for quite sometime so STOP MENTIONING IT.

    3. I still would have gone with LeetMod because RHS is expensive.
