    hi,

    I'm searching a safe website to buy an EZ Flash iV ?
    It's been several hours that i'm seeking one !
    All the sites I found are suspect.

    I was just wondering if you knew a reliable site to buy one ?

    Thanks :D

    Weird, that was out of stock all the times I checked....

    Is that the one with RTC? You know how retailers can be. :P

    I finally buy one on the partner website => http://www.etcome.com
    it seems to be a reliable site. The cost is very low (the lowest i've found) and it's free shipping.

    I will post a message if i received my ez flash to give you a feedback !

    I remember it being out of stock for a while, but I guess they restocked.
    I never owned this cart, but from what I know, it doesn't have RTC.

    I can't find the link for a site that has it in stock for $35 and free shipping (something very similar to DX)....

    maybe, but it's the only one flashcard you can buy (now) and which is compatible with the GBA SP.

    I'm trying to find a Boktai capable cart. I thought the EZ Flash IV had RTC. Hm...

    I just found it strange that the shipping costs from the US are so incredibly high. I also wanted to buy one, but as I saw shipping costs of almost 25$ to germany, I decided to wait until Chinese New Year is over and order it in Asia. Their China/Hong-Kong branch has it also: http://www.realhotst...hcard_p_76.html

    Yeah, RHS always had a bit higher shipping prices, but they are very fast and reliable, so some people choose to pay a bit more to have that.

    I LOVE the etcome bot on this topic saying they have this cart when the don't... stupid crap.

    Anyways, Yeah. Unless you're willing to hunt down some EZ Flash IIIs, M3 Perfects, etc. you're not getting RTC any time soon... just get this cart and deal with it lol. Their prices have slowly been climbing (since I got mine last year it was only 22 dollars on RHS) and they won't be around for much longer.
