    This is for a DS system.


    I've had an M3Simply and an R4, both now running YSMenu, but I'm looking to upgrade. I'm wondering which would be better in the long run - an M3i Zero running Sakura or an AceKard running Akaio. I've read through quite a few topics; the only major difference between the two, from my view, is the price. Any advice on which one would be the better purchase?

    It depends on what features you want. If all you want to do is play roms, go for the cheaper AK. If not, compare the features of both and see which one has what you want. Simple.

    Hence my problem - I don't know which features would be better to have in the future. Roms - sure, but I also have GBA games that I play off a Slot-2 card. I like the design of both cards.

    Maybe the better question is - which firmware will be supported for longer, either by the community or by the company.

    Lean towards Acekard for continuing future updates. The community support is huge.
