    I wanna get into using R4's but I'm not sure where I can get one from a website that's trustworthy and ships relatively fast.

    Edit: NVM this is the DS forum

    Get the card from this website if you want a cheap, but reliable R4 cart.
    PeachDS, Modchipsdirect and NDS-card ship them. All of the sites I mentioned are and should be
    reliable.

    Thanks! How long does the shipping usually take on these websites? I've heard it can last anywhere from 7-30 days, which is a bit off putting.

    Christ, the cards on there are pretty expensive. How long does ModsChipDirect and NDS-Card shipping take?

    Probably should have ordered before christmas then logic says stock will be low or gone. you can do modchipcentral http://www.modchipcentral.com/store/R4i-3DS-RTS-USA-CANADA.html might take a week since they ship from CA with USPS or you can do nds-card and wait roughly a month.

    Looks like NDS-card ships from Asia. I'll go with ModChipCentral. Thanks for the help!

    So I saw this website called USA-Hot-Stuff.com on the Shoptemp website. It seems to ship in the US and has a 7-10 day delivery. Can it be trusted?

    Shoptemp is semi outdated and no one really uses it some things are probably fake on the site and I can't recall any threads in the past year even mention that site, maybe someone has more info on it. Just stick to the main US sites everyone uses peachds/modchipcentral/modchipsdirect.
