    No, I haven't bought it it's just there was an advert for it on a rom site.
    It is the R4DS SDHC RTS Beta V3.0.0 HappyBox edition
    I won't post a link as the site contains links to roms.
    How ever the GUI is very different to anything i have seen before and i don't recognise much of the kernal excep ds menu.dat
    Plus I think the Kernal download containns Xenon extlink (I don't know if thta is allowed?)

    The interface appears hybridized, I'm not sure I could identify one specific UI it's cloned from.
    There are elements that remind me of EZVi/iSmart Premium, Wood, and Moonshell..

    Thinking about buying it to review it, looks to have a 1/2 decent GUI at least.
    Is this a reliable retailer: *Clicky*
    NOTE: I know this is a clone, I already have better cards (A friend gave me a SCDS2 the other week, best gift ever [​IMG] ) I just want to try it and use it for my first review.
    Thanks

    PROTIP: Any site selling carts with "R4" in their name is probably not reputable and using the name to draw as much attention and sound as official as possible.

    Good point, but they are listed as an official retailer on the official site.
    Another more reputable dealer?

    *official retailer on the official site of a clone.

    It's really up to you.
    I'd say save your money, but you seem to have your mind made up on this. At least you know it's a clone and are asking your questions first.

    Anyway... if they're listed on the 'official' site as a retailer, I'd say you've a good chance at getting the item. I just wouldn't really consider them reputable in the general sense -- i.e. I'd probably not buy an AceKard2 from them.

    For $10 more you can get a DSTwo, which (among many other features) isn't a clone.

    I've been buying from priceangles. They're reliable and have some of the best prices. I believe this is Team M3's latest R4 clone. They've devolved into a maker of disposable flash cards.

    Doubtful.
    It's probably a clone of M3's R4 RTS, but it's related to HappyBox clone.
