    Hey Everyone,

    I'm looking into buying a Flash Card and have never owned one, I've heard a lot about the R4 but I've been told to stay away from it since there are better cards out there. I'm thinking about getting one tonight at www.Dangbox.com since it comes with a Free 1gb Micro SD, Hori Screen Protector and a Stylus for $29.99 but I heard they stopped updating the firmware for the R4. The only reason I would prefer the R4 from others is because it is one of the original flash cards and I know others who have it and they love it, should I still get the R4 or go for something else?

    No you shouldn't, it's an obsolete product.

    it's obsolete, overpriced, and outdated. get either the acekard 2 (cheap) or cyclo ds (best)

    Short answer: no
    Long answer: not unless this was like 1.5 years ago when they were "okay"
