    if v3 = new batch, then i dont know if i should buy... because the place I want to buy it at does not specify that it's v3.

    but if it's just a firmware, then it's no problem, since i can just download that.

    V3 is the new flashcart.
    And I dont think any sites still have the V2.

    if the carts advertised as a scdsone SDHC its a v3
    i think its unlikely anywhere still sells the v2's or even v1's

    Yah DX sells V3.
    And the lowest price you can get around.
    Have fun!

    it may be cheaper at DX but you will likely have to wait 2 - 4 weeks for your cart to arrive

    well i buy from dx many times.....

    dx = pay like £6 more for express delivery. and its still cheaper than most places. (express takes about 4-5days still. cos dx needs time to process the order.)

    Maybe look at this thread. It lists all the differences and whatnot.

    thanks everyone for the replies.

    final question:

    I know this is impossible to know unless you're in the Supercard team or something, but maybe the info has been released or whatnot...
    does anyone know if they are gonna release a v4?

    i dont want to buy a v3 and two months later v4 is released.

    and what exactly is SDHC, and what does it do?

    I'm asking out of pure curiosity, it had no effect in my decision in buying a Supercard DSOne.

    but since im getting it, might as well know what it is, right?

    SDHC is any Micro sd cards that are over 2 gigs. 4, 6, 8, 12 gigs, etc.

    WOOT! Thousand posts.

    I'm still waiting for a v4 so that I can buy it and replace my v2 :
    I wouldn't want to buy a v3 and realise that v4 is coming out soon, and I don't think that just SDHC-support is worth buying a v3 for.

    do you think i should postpone my purchase.

    i'd say my need for this is 7.5/10
    (my slot-2 is slowly deteriorating, keeps freezing more and more often now)

    No, I'm only postponing it since I already have a Scds1 and a Ak2. Since you don't have a Scds1 I think you should get it.
