    CycloDS. Most features, and the best support team. It's sold at around 55 dollars, but the price is justified. I can list the amount of features, and etc, if requested.

    Supercard DS ONE. Only 28 from DX or psxbox and it has even more features than Cyclo [​IMG]

    Modding? Nope. Files go on MicroSD, MicroSD goes into Flashcart. Flashcart goes into DS.

    Not anymore. The SCDS1's features are all on the CycloDS now.

    If you just want the best, get the Cyclo.
    But if you're worried about paying 55 bucks for a single Flashkart, but still want things that the CycloDS has, get the SCDS1.

    The one that loads NDS and GBA roms, homebrew, etc, with cost factor in play... I'd have to say the Acekard 2 with an EZFlash V 3-in-1 Expansion pack. Those are sold separately, I believe the AK2 is $23 without a microSD at Dealextreme and the 3-in-1 is around $20.

    the ds firecard. no buying seperate micro sd cards. it comes in 1g, 2g, and 4g versions. supports n-card firmware. supports dldi autopatching. can play any homebrew. supports wifi. touch screen menu. impossible to break unless you physically crack the card. drag and drop your games directly to your cart via usb (included) i recommend the 2g version. the 1g is too small and the 4g....do you really need that much space? the 2g can hold 40 to 50 games depending on size. altough it may "break" it is easily fixed, but it usualy requires you to format it which deletes everything on the card, so always keep a backup. hope this helps.

    The best featured cart is probably the cyclo. The flashiest cart is the RPG but he said the one with the most features.

    While the CycloDS and the Supercard pretty much offer the same features, the CycloDS is much more user friendly. I have owned both and would strongly advise that you spend a little extra on the CycloDS evo.

    For best features, go with CycloDS, it has everything the SCDS ONE (except triple loader), but features are implemented more nicely, it has better/faster/less buggier GUI, and better touch response..

    For the best GBA compatibility, go for M3 Real Perfect bundle, it comes with the Rumble expansion and GBA expansion slot 2 carts..
    YOu'll get best GBA compatibility, plus Real Time Save for GBA games..

    Or perhaps a section called "Noob's Forum: Tell Me What to Buy" to keep the forum clear of so many unnecessary topics. We can treat it like jury duty and take turns handing out biased advice.
