    RealHotStuff, or if you can wait, ShopTemp (but it's based in Hong Kong).

    Third vote for RealHotStuff. Free shipping throughout USA makes it slightly cheaper then SimplyMods or ShopTemp.

    haven't ordered from shoptemp or simplymods.com yet, but I keep hearing about the above three stores often.
    So I guess four votes for realhotstuff XD

    SimplyMods's shipping is only $2. Still very cheap.

    You probably shouldn't be buying the M3i Zero anyway. If that's what you want, get the EZ-Flash Vi instead, it's cheaper too.

    Was going to say the same thing. I went by the official reviews from this site and the M3i had less cons then anything else. I ended up getting it from realhotstuff and i had already known about that site. Since it's in New Jersey it is still a five day ship away from me and is $5 for shipping. Meaning it's around $12 more then a site from hong kong. So wait four weeks verse paying ten dollars more i chose to pay ten dollars more.

    Why did you pay for shipping?!? There is an option for free shipping in the US. http://realhotstuff.com/zero-free-shipping-p-474.html

    As for the M3i having less cons: It is a nice card, but its no different then a Acekard 2i or EZ Flash Vi. Why spend the extra money?

    Realhotstuff is definitely a tad bit overpriced, but not so much that it hurts their reputation. Considering it's a US seller with a good reputation and super fast shipping, they make up for the cost difference with awesome service. However, I still prefer Simplymods because of their nice customer service. It only takes a day longer for them. I'm on the east coast and it takes 2 days for Realhotstuff and 3 days for Simplymods.

    I would say DX if they still had flashcarts... alas they dont lol.

    So in return, I must vote for RealHotStuff.com. Great service, fast shipping, though things are a tad expensive. But theyre based out of NJ, and seeing as I live in NJ, I get all my orders in 2 days [​IMG]

    Don't purchase from RealHotStuff.com...They just sent me a defective Acekard 2.1 clone. Won't even boot. Now I have to pay the shipping and handling to send the product back and get a new one, a process that will take at least 5 days. Thanks a lot RHS. Wow.

    According to the Acekard guide thread, 2.1's from December 2009 to now are part of a bad batch recognized by the official creators so that could be it.


    Honestly, I don't even see the need for 2.1's with the 2i and all...

    The "bad" batch can no longer be considered bad because it works with AKAIO 1.7.1. The card I received does not work with any AKAIO version nor the offical Acekard firmware. :/

    The 2i's were out of stock, and I don't even have a DSi and I don't have any plans to get one in the near future.

    Well, THIS tidbit is certainly news. I got an email from SimplyMods, and they're closing down. Scared of Nintendo's power and from what I got, it looks like they got a spook letter. I dunno.

    ^^^ You should post that in the user submitted news. If true, it's important enough to be on the frontpage.
