    best on the market? everdrive gba
    compared to the other still on the market (ez iv)

    almost instant loading
    no rom patching
    rtc
    easily replaceable battery
    no need to write 32mb games to the NOR (loads them in 1 or 3 seconds from what i heard)

    gb and gbc through gomba emulator like the ez iv or other cards

    the difference is, you can launch the gb\gbc roms directly from the menu
    in the ez iv, and other gba carts you need to pack the games inside a gba rom and launch it like a gba game..

    however there is a everdrive GB, which was designed for the GB\C. you can also use it on a gba to play GB\C game natively

    Best ever, no. Best you are going to be able to find for sensible money and brand new, yes.

    Or if you prefer the EZ4 did and still plays basically every GBA game as it would have played on the cart. Most flash carts will or are "if they fit on the memory it plays", the exceptions being the supercard GBA range, the team cyclops clone of said same range and some of the really really early stuff.
