    Same item, different price, and different store. Are you ever going to get a DSi? If not why not get a Acekard 2.1 instead?

    Okay, or you could do this for half the price with free shipping...

    Acekard 2i AK2i Multimedia SDHC TF Cart for DSi/NDSi/DS Lite

    I got one from them, works great in my DSi. Took two plus weeks to get it, but hey, if you're not in a rush...

    Regardless, if you were planning to get an Acekard anyway, spring for the 'i' version.

    Hmm, Depends I am in canada so if the store I get it from is not here, I get screwed over by the govt at the border with TAX and then a bs handling fee on top. Ordered a 30-40 dollar item from the us once cost me 15-20 bucks at the post office to get it due to said fee's.

    You feel you got screwed by the government because you didn't do your homework about custom/import taxes/fees.
    You don't need to pay for anything below $20CAD so if you follow striderx's link and buy the acecard only, you'll be fine.

    By the way, charging you 15-20 bucks for a 30-40 dollar item sounds like shipping by UPS/Fedex Ground.
    UPS International Ground is to avoid like plague for Canadians.
    UPS International Express is fine but expensive, you only pay taxes, no custom/broker fees.

    2.1 would be like two dollars cheaper and you may as well just use that lol. >_>
