    Hey all. I was wondering where I could buy a DSLink and have it shipped to the US. I only found hopebuy.com and they are out of stock, and sky2k.com - which I never heard of. Are there any other websites that sell the DSLink?

    =/ I'm not being lazy. I checked google, froogle, checked maxconsole, gbatemp, etc and only came up with those stores. I don't understand why I got a reply like that. Maybe because I am a new poster. whatever..

    Anyway.....

    Thanks Spacejump I havent seen that store yet.

    I got my DS-Link from them.
    They don't ship the packaging with the carts though. PSXBOX May work out cheaper.

    I had a problem with a flashcart I bought from them. Customer support rang me shortly after I sent them an email. On the phone I was told a replacement card was being sent out and I could send the problem card back after I got the new one.
    I received the replacement cart a week later. Very happy with that support.

    I've ordered more carts from them that I'm waiting to arrive. Once I have those I'll be posting up a report on my experience with them.
    So far I've been impressed with them and can suggest them for your DS-Link purchase. Just make sure to check the shipping costs when comparing the different stores. Bamboo Gaming has expensive shipping.

    Thanks Shtonkalot. I ended up buying from bamboogaming last night. I wasn't too worried about the original packaging as long as I actually get the product and it works.

    Please, do not post links to stores that are like that. Someone might actually use that store and loose their money. That shop is a total fraud, I read it on various boards that were created by people who are linked to that store. The prices are way over the line and you can't even find any proper contact info from there.

    Ah I see, thanks for the clarifications! *thumbs up*

    Btw, has anyone heard good things about PSXBOX? They seem to have pretty good prices but I haven't been able to find reviews about them [​IMG]

    realhotstuff.com is getting a patch of them, the owner said that the shipment is already in the mail and hopefully he will receive it soon.

    Psxbox is a pretty decent site. I purchased my DSLink from them. Although the page originally said "Order now, ships this weekend", it wound up taking a week for them to ship my order, but in return they sent me the English version for no extra charge. Shipping took about a week as expected, as they're overseas.
