    I was wondering where you could buy some for a reasonable price besides DX. Anyone know where?

    NO WHERE!!!! [​IMG]
    The team doesn't make them no more so it's probably gonna be sold at outrageous prices!(like $20?)
    DX has other alternatives which are better in compatibility!
    The build might not be R4 quality but it'sgood provided you don't smash them frequently!
    Search around here for a better suggestion! [​IMG]

    what the first guy said dx is the best place to buy a clone b/c they don't make real ones anymore so they are kinda pricey. you should get a cyclods evolution they are the best! you can get one at www.dealwoot.com and its about 50$. but if thats too much for you then i reccomend the acekard 2 (or 2i) from dealextreme. the acekard is probobly the second best flashcard out there

    Didn't you read ANYTHING they typed? The r4 is outdated now. Get a Acekard 2 or something. If you really want to pay a premium for a discontinued flash cart with no extra features and a crap GUI, then go for it.

    THE R4 IS DEAD........ DEAL!

    I have one myself - it was great, but the support is gone - no more updates.
    Seriously - get one that is supported still like the AK2 ro one day soon you are going to find that the new games simply stop working.
    I am about to buy one myself.

    Not to sound rude or anything, but why are you willing to pay for a cloned, almost-dead card when you can buy an original and fully working card for roughly the same price? The DSTT is just a few bucks, if I'm not mistaken.

    Edit: I guess I'm not the only one wondering this xD

    Yes, Acekard 2 is decent, cheap, and most importantly, NOT DEAD.
