    I have a GBA and a DS Lite by the way. Here are my options

    1) Keep my GBA, sell my DS Lite, and buy a EZ Flash IV

    or

    2) Keep my DS Lite, and buy a EZ Flash 3-in-1

    I'm more leaning towards option 1 at this point since it saves me more money. How does the EZIV compare to the 3 in 1 in terms of GBA support? What are the pros and cons of both?

    The 3-in-1 has excellent compatibility. It could be 100% except for the protected cartridges(such as the NES Classics games) that don't work on any cart without a patch. It can also act as a real GBA cartridge for GBA to NDS linking. The problem is copy time. You can only have one game on the 3-in-1 at a time and it can take about 90 seconds to copy a larger game to it. There is a beta version of the firmware that allows multiple games, but you still have a RAM limit and it's still slow.

    My advice, if budget allows, is to buy a slot-1 cart for DS games and keep the EZ4 for GBA.

    Well the EZFlash 3in1 will just set you back 20$
    Don't know how much an EZ4 + Memory card will cost though
    And keeping the DS Lite as a backup is always nice

    I got a CycloDS. I really don't wanna have two DS's so I wanted to sell the DS Lite in favor for the DSi. Good thing I still have my GBA

    The EZ-Flash IV is practically the same as the 3in1 in terms of compatibility. Also, we don't know yet if the DSi will support flashcarts.
