    I own both of those cards. The r4isdhc gold pro is garbage and barely works, if it works. Over time it's started freezing. Plus the cheat system basically doesn't work did all. The r4i gold 3ds is far better both in terms of long term performance and all of it's features work properly

    DSTT clone, will work fine, offers 4 rts slots vs 1 on Gold 3DS but some games may not work and menu is kinda slow. But you can use YSmenu from RGF thread which should work with all games.
    Not a bad choice overall but Gold 3ds is better imo.

    I personally prefer the R4i Gold (r4ids.cn).

    R4isdhc GOLD Pro 2017 is garbage. The firmware auto-softlocks when one year passes, and you must change the date of your 3DS to continue using it. Plus, the R4i Gold 3DS RTS supports Wood.

    I use a R4 Dual-Core SDHC 2014. Going strong for years now.

    As said above, the R4i Gold blahblahblah is really good. I own one and love it. Works on all my DS family of systems and I rarely have any issues with it.

    Behind you
    DSTT for minimal DS playing with barely any impact on the battery life. (cheap)
    Supercard DSTWO for the perfect compatibility + GBA emulator (if you don't have a 3DS), moderate impact on battery life. (expensive)

    I've got the same card. It's really good. I have an 8gb card in there right now. The in-game reset is very helpful.

    They release new version of firmwares to fix this and you can use any old cards (from 2013 i think) with these new firmwares.
