    R4 III is a clone and will eventually be bricked with an update later on in the year..

    Never heard of Nintendo R4 DS Simply?? [​IMG]

    AK2 is good, Im thinking about getting one, Pretty basic, Thats all I need anyway..

    Same with the Edge..

    DSTT, not sure, Have heard its a bit more complicated than Edge and AK2

    M3, meh, havent heard much about it..


    Cyclo seems to be top range atm, but if you dont need all the features, Go for the EDGE of Ak2.. [​IMG]

    Hope I have helped.. [​IMG] A bit [​IMG]

    If you want the best flashcart and don't care about the price: CycloDS Evolution
    If you want the best flashcart but do care about the price: Acekard 2
    If you want a flashcart with onboard NAND memory: Acekard R.P.G.
    If you want a flashcart that also offers a Slot-2 (not for free though): EZFlash V & M3DS Real
    If you want a Slot-2 expansion: EZFlash 3-in-1 (GBA, RAM, & Rumble)
    If you want a flashcart that could possible brick your Nintendo DS: R4 DS, R4 III & N5

    I wouldn't suggest getting the Acekard 2 because there have been many problems with them dying after a month of use.

    A good budget card like the EDGE or DSTT would suit you best.

    That problem has been fixed though. Also, if you're really unlucky to get a bad one, just exchange it. Although I'll doubt you'll get a bad one anyway.

    Whats the problem with the EDGE card? I've been looking around and haven't found anything that hasn't been user related, looked to be a good card for the price.

    Why not get a Cyclo, it rarely has any problems and it runs all games and most homebrews. I never had a problem with my Cyclo with my very first DS.

    +1. If you can't afford it, just get an Acekard 2.
