    Well, I have my R4, and love it to bits, but am a bit miffed regarding it's lack of GBA functionality
    Which Slot 2 device would the panel recomend to compliment the R4. I'd prefer it to work with the browser, and it needs to fit the classic DS.

    Opinions?

    There are 2 types of slot-2 carts, what I like to call 'complimentary' carts and 'stand-alone' carts. The complimentary carts do not have memory of their own, they load games from the MicroSD card in a slot-1 flashcart. Currently there is the Ewin Expansion Pack and the EZ-Flash 3 in 1. Only the EZ-Flash 3 in 1 comes in phat size, and is only available in that size from a few retailers (I know RealHotStuff is one of them).
    'Stand-alone' slot-2 flashcarts have their own memory. Most people seem to recommend M3/G6 if you're not concerned about the price, or the EZ-Flash 4 if you want something cheaper without most of the luxuries. Have a look at the GBAtemp reviews of these carts for more info.

    Yep. EZ-Flash IV works wonders. And it uses MicroSDs for storage.

    Yeah, G6Lite is a great Slot-2 as well. Probably even better than the EZFlash IV (But the G6Lite only has 512MB of Memory, can't add more)

    If you choose the G6Lite, be prepared to shell out $70+
