    I purchased one from Real Hot Stuff this morning with a bonus microSD card and an EZ-Flash 3-in-1 for about $77. I'm soo excited!!!!! Hopefully it will be here in the next couple of weeks, but until then, should I be worried about having purchased from RHS? I'm just worried because that site, like most others that you buy these flashcarts from, looks a bit sketchy. Anyone else had success with the store?

    Also, what should I do when it comes in the mail? What should be my first steps? [​IMG]

    Yup, it's pretty damn good! Took about 3 days for my cyclo to come to my PO box with no troubles, but it is a bit pricey compared to other shops.

    You bought a cyclo, and not an R4...? THE R4 WAS IN THE DAMN PC WORLD THIS MONTH, ARE YOU CRAZY!?

    Anyways, I used Dealextreme, and haven't had any trouble. That was one that didn't seem sketchy. You should've said something BEFORE you bought it, you might lose your credit card stuff.

    You're not serious right?

    Anyways. RHS is a pretty good site, and i dont think you can find a Cyclods cheap.

    That store is my favorite pick for buying in the USA. You shouldn't worry too much as many people use it here(aside from DealExtreme(China)). You should also check RHS up on resellerratings.com(Is that it?). Shipping is also really fast.

    Well first, you gotta download the firmware from here or the Cyclo website. Maybe download somethings you want to try or test before it comes. Then when it gets there, you can install it and it's good to go. The Cyclo has EZ 3in1 support so there shouldn't be any problems at that part.

    Tools+Firmware+REFERENCE MANUAL here: http://www.cyclopsds.com/cgi-bin/cyclods/e...pl?page=support
    (Suggest you read the manual to use Real time save and how to install new firmwares and such)

    Yeah, I'll probably do those things. I've done a lot of research and watching of youtube videos ahead of time to get some sort of feel of what I'm getting into, as this is my first flashcart. Also, LOL at your sig!

    RHS and DX are pretty good.. Though RHS is faster with the shipping.

    RHS and DX, like TenchuBlaze said, are both great sites. DX generally has cheaper prices, but the shipping is horrible, while RHS has slightly higher prices, but great shipping times. It just depends how fast you want the product and how much you're willing to pay.
    But yeah congrats on the new CycloDS.

    Ive ordered from both DX and RHS. RHS delivered my CycloDS fast, There definitely a trustworthy place and have awesome customer support. I ordered a couple accessories for my DSL from DX, and recieved it in 8 Days, From China. I think both are very trustworthy.

    I second the Dealwoot. Great shipping, their stock is for real, but unfortunately that means they have a slightly smaller assortment of carts.

    Incredibly disappointingly, the Cyclo still hasn't arrived as of today; it wasn't in the regular mail to day.
    Needless to say, I've been practically salivating for the Cyclo, and awaiting it anxiously. Give me my CycloDS, RHS!!!!

    I am practically gnashing my teeth together in anticipation; and I'm going to be incredibly disappointed if my Cyclo doesn't come in today. [​IMG] [​IMG]
