    I'm sorry if any of the options don't make sense, but I'm new *blink*

    Anyway, what do you have?

    What do you like/don't like about your card?

    What do you wish you had instead?

    What are you planning to buy? (since ds-xtreme isn't out yet)

    The SuperKey is a NoPass, not a flashcart. Also, the DS-X has been out for a while now.

    I own the G6 lite 4gb. It runs almost every game for DS and GBA, and drains the battery less than almost any other cart. Exact same size as the DS lite slot 2 dust cover. Homebrew support sucks, and more space would be nice, but I'm happy with my purchase.

    I would like the M3 Lite to be glossier and have a better GUI

    A bit of advice: Don't pay too much attention to the numbers the carts/cards get in reviews. Decide what features you need and what features you want, weigh the pros & cons and the price, and then decide based on that.

    Don't put too much weight behind the views of other people, either. Some of the people here have very strong views about the merits of the various devices, and not all of those people understand that their opinions don't apply to everyone.

    Some things to consider (in no particular order):
    NDS compatibility
    GBA compatibility
    homebrew compatibility
    removeable media vs internal memory
    price
    battery life
    game manager(patching software) vs drag & drop
    the company's reputation


    deathspawn999: Fourth choice from the top. DS-X == DS-Xtreme

    A Supercard Lite... can't it wasn't included in the poll. This poll is flawed, you should have a mod redo it.

    Yay, G6 lite owns! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I love the incredibly easy software, but I dont like that I can't get it to fit perfectly in my dustcover when I modded it.

    I plan to get either an Acecard, DS Link or DSX.

    Hmmm, can only vote for one hey? I have a lot of those, and a few you don't mention as well (M3SD, EZ1/2, F2A, Neo2TF,XG) - though I have been steering clear of the G6 since I prefer adapters that use MM flash cards instead of onboard flash memory (and I already have a M3 anyway).

    Right now, my day to day use favorites are the EZ4 and DSLink. My take on the EZ4 is, they aren't really trying to hide anything behind crypts and weird chip lockouts (and I like that from a programming perspective). The DSLink... gotta have something to fill that DS slot, and it's fairly well made too.

    ah, sloppy of me not to notice [​IMG] thanks. battery and compatabilty is what I'm looking for anyway. homebrew is less of a criteria.
    ds-x looks nice though.

    ease of use is definatly another criteria to consider as well although that could be what you meant by game manager.

    So far the Acekard looks to be the hands down winner for NDS rom compatibilty, and the hands down loser for ease of use.

    The manager is simply the program you use to patch the roms to work on the cart. All slot 2 carts need the roms to be patched AFAIK. The G6 manager (the only one I've used) is easy to use and has some nice features like rom trimming & soft reset.

    The DS-X runs clean (unpatched) roms so it doesn't need a manager; you just copy the file to the card. The Acekard also runs clean roms but it has a funky filesystem so you have to use their (currently very buggy and feature-free) software to transfer the games.

    imo, acekard has the biggest potential so far, it's easier to improve the buggy client than to fix every single problem on ds games (ds-x, ninjapass x9)

    but we have a microninja to look forward to (reviwed soon hopefully),

    and also supercard and m3's version on slot 1 solution, who knows when these came out

    as for me, currently i have 2 ds-es, 1 ds phat for me, and i bought a new dslite and i gave my m3 mini sd for my bro

    i'm looking for a perfect solution to give him on his dsl and i'll just use the m3 mini sd, so far i'm keeping an eye on acekard

    on slot 2 solution, it's impossible to run games without patching, so 100% compatibility without updates are almost impossible, so i'm looking for a slot 1 solution, once acekard has proven their client update support, i'll get it

    100% compatibility may require updates even with the acekard. If Nintendo starts using new types of saves the Acekard won't be able to save in those games at all until an update is released. Also, in order for the Acekard save system to not be a total pain in the ass you will need regular updates to the game database.

    Still, it will be a good option if they really do support it.
