    Hi all, I'm on a trip over at Japan [​IMG]
    I'm writing this because I wanna make sure what I do before I leave Japan.
    I saw in Akihabara R4DS in at least 30-50 USD. There's no R4DS in Israel, then I thought of buying it. (I have a stinky N-Card clone-_-)
    What do you say about R4DS And does it actually a GOOD flashcart to play DS games with?
    Kinda urgent, due to the end of my trip in single days.

    Thanks in advance.

    I say go for it, the r4 is one of the most popular flash cards. One of the advantages of this is that if you have a problem with it, many people will understand and help you.

    It works great with games, but homebrew not as well. It is also very outdated and you are probably better off getting something like a SuperCard DS ONE for cheaper.

    R4 is not a good card, I would say get something else. Anything but an R4.

    a lot of the forum members will tell you to purchase a newer card that supports SDHC, but if you don't have a need for more than a 2GB microsd, I would say go for it. I love my R4 and although the interface is considered primitive by some, I find it is good, stable and easy to use flash card.

    r4 is a great card. But choose something else if you want sdhc(4gb+ cards)

    Ok, I found on Akihabara an EZ-Flash V Plus, with support of SDHC [​IMG])))))))
    Supports Homebrews, GBA's and SDHC, good deal, ain't it?

    I'd say go with the Ez Flash 5 Plus its much better than the R4. Much Better.

    The R4 is a good card, end of discussion. But it really depends on what features you want.

    If it's SDHC than is't a fake and you realize that you will also need a slot-2 (Ewin Expansion Pak, EZ Flash 3 in 1) device to run GBA ROMs

    dealextreme doesn't ship to israel? I'd recommend an SCDS1, R4 are slowly becoming crap, don't do it, you'll be jumping in at the END of it's life.

    I concur.

    I just bought a m3ds real (buy whatever you want ez5+ seems fine).
    my m3 ds simply (same as a r4) offers less features (and was starting to block).
    and it has less features :no favorite / soft reset / sdhc , for example.

    r4 is good if you're only planning to play games and few of them (since no sdhc).
