    I noticed on the reviews look

    Supercard DS One V3

    Pros
    + 100% ROM Compatibility (from current tests)
    + No slow-downs or glitches in games (from current tests)
    +- Download Play support is perfect (from current tests)
    + Completely drag 'n' drop, no software needed
    + Supports clean ROMs
    + Micro SDHC support
    + Easy navigatable GUI
    + Fits flush in your DS
    + Strong build quality
    + Comes with a Micro SD reader
    + Fairly strong package
    + Not very expensive

    Cons
    - Protruding chip
    - Skinning is difficult


    CycloDS Evolution

    Pros:
    + 100% ROM compatibility (from current tests)
    + Drag and drop clean ROMs - very easy to use
    + No PC usage required, all advanced actions can be enabled, disabled and used via the OS and in-game menu
    + Full download play support
    + Micro SDHC card support
    + Great enhanced features (slow motion, DLDI auto patching, cheat support...)
    + Great OS that is fully skinnable
    + Supports FAT and FAT32
    + Fits flush in your DS

    Cons:
    - Cart build quality not top notch
    - Slightly more expensive than the competition with less freebies (i dont care about it)
    - Still requires a good quality micro SD card for a few particular games
    - Only available in white (i dont care about it)
    - In game menu causes slight graphical hiccups


    Looks like both are good but supercard better and can play all roms with no errors etc...
    on the CycloDS it says

    cart build quality not top notch
    in game menu causes slight graphical hiccups

    what does those two things mean??

    and for supercard what does Protruding chip mean?

    what does this mean??

    Also a 4GB A-DATA SDHC CLASS 6 will do good for the cyclods...

    You cant be wrong.

    Both cards are very sturdy at their current state.
    CycloDS => the team offers nice support.
    Supercard => lower price + REAL TIME GUIDE

    Get a Cyclo, a lot of the cons for it are outdated. For example, it is available in black.

    Yah thats true. Also the menu from Supercard is not really the best out their.
    But xjuniorx said earlier he doesnt care about menu, so Supercard should be no problem for him.

    I'm not gonna argue anymore after this but one last thing: The Cyclo is more user-friendly, and given this user's level of intelligence, you'd have to agree it's a better card for him.

    Supercard menu is complicated, slow, hard skinning.

    Cyclo Menu is smooth, fast, easy to use.

    Your choice.
    I am sure, you are aware of the price difference.
    And "Fast".. theres not really that big difference. But Cyclo menu is easier to use, so as new to flashcart Cyclo is more suitable for you anyways.

    Protruding chip means it has a chip that sticks out a little. Maybe look at some youtube videos to see what I'm talking about.

    No, that's just a microSD sticking out. The protruding chip is the chip in the front under the sticker that buldges out a tiny bit.

    Whoops. This is what it looks like. It makes no difference since the card still fits in fine, but it feels funny to touch.

    Almost every new flashcart has that chip sticking out.
    Examples:
    M3 DS REAL,
    Supercard
    CycloDS
    Edge

    No Chip Sticking out:
    R4DS
    M3 DS Simply
    Those are the only ones I had myself.
