    I know there are other R4 lists, but they are out of date, and I am in the market to buy one, so I am making this list for myself anyway. In order to keep this list the best, please reply with your reseller experiences, price changes, or if you know of a reseller I don't have listed.

    (This list is tailored for Americans, but if you include other currency prices or shipping I'll gladly add them in)

    I've ordered 2 time at bamboogaming, the only problem is that they send you Chinese Acekards instead of English ones...

    I can recommend Real Hot Stuff. I've ordered from them a couple times (including the R4) and they have good service and fast shipping (in the US). They've dropped my orders in the mail the same day. Plus, they have a coupon code "RHS07" that gives you 5% off your order before shipping. That brings the R4 price down to $42.75 + $7.05 S&H = $49.80.

    Nice list BTW, and kudos to Killermech for the original with R4 site links.

    I got mine from bamboogaming, was very good price, english version, and white, not black. They don't send anything but the usb converter, card case, software mini-cd, and strap, so you don't get the box. . It took 10 days to new york. Works like a charm

    I give another thumbs up for bamboogaming. I received my R4DS in 12 days from Shanghai, China which was about what they promised. I think the $12.00 shipping noted in another post is quoted in Australian Dollars. In US dollars it's 8 or 9 dollars which I didn't think was too bad and considering the price for the R4DS in US Dollars was less than $35.00 it wasn't a bad deal at all.

    you can buy from these awesome sites.
    however i also recommend ebay.
    sometimes ebay has way cheaper prices(of course it depends on the seller).
    i got my r4 with a 1gb kingston for $50.00 (USD) with shipping. [​IMG]

    That's a good price and you can get a good deal on Ebay but I find that a great number of them blow up the shipping prices so high that it makes it difficult to search for the best deal. I noticed they started putting the shipping amounts in the search but I wish you could sort items by product price + shipping price and even the table for everyone.
