    I'm currently using a R4 Deluxe and it's pretty shitty. Please only post if you know that the one you are talking about is the best, so no fanboy-ism.

    Any reason why that one would the best one? Also, I see there's a 'M3 Zero', a newer version of the M3 Real. What do you know about that one?

    I'm pretty sure its just an M3 Real with DSi compatibility.. nothing more nothing less (someone correct me if I'm wrong, please). If you plan on getting a DSi in the future for whatever reason, you might want to get an M3 Zero to future proof.

    Both the Acekard2/2i and M3 Real/M3i Zero are very good choices

    With excellent firmwares: AKAIO and M3 Sakura

    Okay, so should I get a M3 Real/Zero or an Acekard?
    Money is no problem.

    If moneys not a problem, and your using a normal DS Lite or phat, buy a CycloDS, it has most all the features you'll need.

    You can get the rumble pack and/or GBA expansion pack that are [sometimes] bundled with the m3real if you want GBA support as well. They both work with the m3i0 and are sold separately as well.

    I started off with the R4 but switched to a Ak2i when I purchased the DSi & I must say it's a great card. With the Ak2i I didn't need a patch for Bowser's Story & Such

    Aww...I've always wanted Slow Motion...There are games that are funny to me sometimes (Sideswiped).

    AK2i (Acekard 2i ; if you have a DSi) - Updated often? Some games will work, even without patches.
