    MK4-mini has EEPROM, MK4-key doesn't.

    Ahh I see, thanks.

    I suppose not having EEPROM isn't that big of a deal if using with EZ Lite, right?

    You're right. All games I've tried on EZ4 saves properly. Even newer games like Rockman ZX saves correctly without updates, while products like M3, Supercard, and G6 Lite need software updates.

    Sigh, I wasted money buying the MK4-mini then, didn't I? I'm also getting the EZ-Flash IV Lite. Ah well.

    It's not really a waste of money if you can use the EEPROM.

    For example, while everyone was having trouble saving Rockman ZX, I simply told the G6 Lite to save on the MK4-Mini - and it did. It can be a very handy backup to have around, and it's only an extra $10.

    Great purchase. [​IMG]

    What colours does the MK4 Key come in? The pxsbox pic linked above looks like it's blue, but cheapmod.net has it in white http://www.cheapmod.net/item--MK4-Key--mk4key. Same question for the MK4 Mini - what colours does that come in?

    Personally I'd like a white one of either of these two devices, to match my DS Lite. I'd also rather not have the switch visible from the outside - it seems a little ugly.

    Has anyone actually posted a proper review of either of these two items yet?

    The M4K-Mini is available in White & Ice Blue - Ice Blue was just introduced, so I'll have to update my chart that it has a colour choice. The M4K-Key is only in blue IIRC.

    Because the M4K has been tested to work with all NDS carts and it works. The EZ-Pass 3 hasn't yet been tested..

    I've seen more pics of the MK4-Key in white on the neoflash website. But it hasn't actually been released yet so I guess we don't really know what colours in comes in until then.

    I meant if using it with EZ Flash Lite, since EZPass is from the makers of EZ Flash so we know it will work with their own products.

    Though MK4 does have a flashier look [​IMG]

    I would still go with the more tested, mature solution.

    Considering the terrible build quality of the EZ-Flash IV products, I'd be wary about putting any more money in their pockets for 'accessory' products like the EZ-Pass 3, unless it conforms to a higher standard of quality.

    Anyone know if the MK4 Key has no splash screen? I know that the MK4 Mini doesn't have one but if the MK4 Key doesn't have one as well it would make the MK4 Key the top passcard out so far in terms of price and ability.
