    Cheaper? No.
    Easy to find? Not at all.

    These have been out of production for awhile. You'll have to hunt pretty hard, as anybody else willing to look far and wide, is probably going to snatch it up themselves.

    I can't comment on how good it is personally.

    It does NOT work well with GBA games. Just get an EZ Flash IV.

    Some games go really slow (almost unplayable), and it also doesn't save SRAM automatically. You have to do a Quick Power Cycle (turn off and on rapidly) and then manually do a key combination to save the SRAM. If you forget to do it, say goodbye to your hard-earned progress.

    [​IMG] What the hell? Why does it say ids and idsl? What the HELL are those? Also... if they are trying to say "DSi", they are straight up lying. Seriously, they don't have GBA slots, this is NOT compatible...

    Anyways, yeah. EZ Flash IV all the way. Such an amazing cart.

    The iQue DSL is referred to as a IDSL, and iQue DS -> IDS. These are on the Supercard boxes and possible others before DSi existed. The iQue DS(L) plays all DS games including chinese ones, while the regular DS cannot due to the lack of chinese fonts. DS game are region free however.

    No idea why the price is what it is, but I use this site ll the time. They're a little wonky on delivery times. (Anywhere from 10 days to about 20) Other than that, they are great. As for why it is worse, the device suffers from slowdown on some games. (Mario World, and Contra for example) It's a good solid card that will play most things on the GBA. For $10 cheaper than an EZ 4, it is nice. If you have the extra to spend, grab the EZ 4. No slowdowns, and a little better save setup.

    Judging from the pictures it seems that they are fakes/clones. There's a thread on the supercard forums, but there hasn't been a statement from the official team about these.

    Well, it's a clone at worse. They work just fine.
