    Well the only reliable site that sells the english version of acekard(bamboogaming) takes time to ship, so I don't expect anyone having the english version now.

    A lot of people believe that review to be biased, and would like a 3rd party 2nd opinion at least.

    I mean the 100% compatabilty makes a lot of people sit up and take notice, especially in the lite of ds-x carts, amongst others, having the dreaded VaniaPOR freezing.

    If you're one of these people then you are an absolute moron, and you have nothing to do on this forum.
    If you think we're biased then you know NOTHING of GBAtemp. You pollute the community, spread your bullshit and annoy the admins who spend DAYS, LOTS OF MONEY and EFFORT to write these reviews.

    I invite you to either leave GBAtemp now. Or to stop spitting your bullshit.
    You have pissed us off enough with your acekard fanboyism.

    You are warned: if you are unable to realize how hard we work, and after all we've done you still believe that we are "biased", then get out of here. Post your lame comments again and I will be glad to kick your stupid little ass out of here
    I'm sick of the idiots like you who know nothing, who cry because their supercard got a lower rating than the M3, who cry because the Acekard got a lower rating, etc.
    Now I've had enough. I don't give a shit what you think of the Acekard, or the DS-X, but you've got to respect us. You can tell your friends "omg GBAtemp is biased!!!11 teh acekard roxxx ass every1 buy it!!!" I dont give a fucking shit. BUT AT LEAST DONT SAY IT HERE. I will not let you insult us again, not in our own forums.

    You are perfectly allowed to post things like "the acekard should've had a better rating", "the acekard is better than the dsx", "gbatemp is wrong", whatever shit you want. But pretending we're biased, which is an ABSOLUTE LIE and INSULT to our work, I can't let it happen.

    (ps: If you're looking for a biased website: http://www.maxconsole.net/?mode=news&newsid=12419
    As of today there is zero information on this EZ IV slot1, and though maxconsole already predicts it will be "No match for DS-Xtreme".)

    It's not a question of bias really, its nice to have opinions from a collective bunch of people who have had their own experiences with the card, kinda like what mr freemaan said above ^^ I'd like to see experiences with different microSD brands as well.

    i dont think you will get a more comprehensive review. to sum them up, they said that the AK does give what it says, but at a hefty cost. having to deal with the AKFS and everything that comes along with it, is just a huge pain in the ass, and will not be worth it to many. however, if 100% compatability is the only thing that matters to you, get it.

    hell i thought they gave it to high of a score, but i can see where 100% compatability is very nice. i just dont view compatability as high as usability, and thats a personal preference.


    ps, who the hell thinks the review is biased? everything else ive read about it is the same thing unless it was someone from china trying to support it.

    after every review, they state why its good or bad, and having bought 3 flash carts based on reviews, i say they review pretty damn good

    here guys, i just finished reviewing the AK, and here it is.


    The Acekard Review as done by deathspawn999

    The Acekard is the best flash cart ever. It will play every video game and comes preloaded with all roms for every system (only if you buy the combo from them though). Not only is the AKFS a breeze to work with, but it couldnt be simpler to use.

    Simply the best in the business here, if you dont get it, you probably have a mental defficiency.



    Happy?

    Biased, huh? I thought the score they gave was way too high considering how damn annoying it'd be to use. And the flaws pointed out are pretty much facts not opinions, I mean how did something like the lack of fragmentation (so you can't put on a large game even with enough free space because it's spread between other roms) even get through the design stages?

    I'd suggest giving things a score keeping in mind the scale does actually start from 1 and not 7, but I guess it's too late to start that now since these already reviewed products would have an unfair advantage with their higher scores.

    For the record I'd say a fair few people have been biased toward DS-X lately, I mean it's only 512mb, expensive, has problems with some games and doesn't have the best battery life even though it's slot 1 (which was one plus I thought they'd have). The G6 Lite 1GB is what I'm hanging out for anyway.
