    i was originally going to get a dstt for the low price (about $10, the m3real is $28), but the m3 sakura software looks amazing and the dstt gui looks kind of crappy, & it seems like it would take a long time to scroll through if i had a lot of games . but then i thought that the appearance wasn't really that important as long as it played all the games . what do you all think ?

    Go with the M3 Real, it's a far better card.

    Choose M3 - it is much better than DSTT.
    But if you want to cheap card with great game compatibility and with nice gui, go for AK2i. (about 12 - 15bugs)

    Where intellect matters
    I don't see why people see the need to advertise other flashcarts that the OP should get if he/she specifically asks which 2 to vote for.

    I honestly think it's like going "Hmmm you want to know whether or not to get Pizza or Tacos, and you have a very specific craving for both...hmmm...get Burgers!".

    Anyways I would suggest the M3 Real.

    Good analogy but it seems as if the OP is looking more for functionality/price than preferences so throwing in other options that fit her specifications better could be of help.

    yeah i think i'll go with the itouchds, especially since i found out it can run sakura(:

    & what's everyone's obsession with the supercard & the acekard ? what's so special ? when i saw the sakura firmware it totally blew me away, i don't see why people wouldn't prefer it over other carts? someone should fill me in .

    Depends who your are asking. I don't give a shit for the GUI sakura has personally.
    Acekard has good compatability with games with AKAIO. SC team are pretty much faithful to their carts even if they update slow. EOS is pretty good so far as well.

    If you buy online i cant stress enough that you get the store to test the cart before delivery as part of your delivery requirments. That way if it is part of the 0.3 % of failing carts you wont get it. And state you want them to test with SD + SDHC just to make sure.

    Yeah DSTT went down the same road as the R4, except for the facts that DSTT hasn't been cloned over 9000 times.
    I'd go for M3, that's probably the best choice.

    Well, it could have been hypothetical, but why then would one start another thread in a different section and not even list the iTouch? hmmmm....anyway, move on - nothing else to see here.
    BTW, M3 Real craps on DSTT (and probably iTouch too, I would suspect).

    wow chill. i found out about the itouchds after i made this thread, because i thought the m3 real was the only cart that could run sakura at first, & the itouch is cheaper. so this thread came before the itouch sakura one. i wasn't trying to "pretend that i had one" if that's what you're getting at. i just wanted a simple answer, so i asked the question in the simplest way i could think of, which is stating it as if i had one. sorry if that bothers you so much ?

    Don´t go to iTouch. His Firmware sucks and its the worse flashcard (only see THIS).

    M3i Zero is BEST. And you can use iTouch firmware in there if you want (but really sucks). With M3i you can use multiple firmware.
