    Long story short: I got mugged and my NDS got stolen. Along with it went my flashcart. I originally payed $40 for it along with a 4GB Kingston mini SDHC from someone on Craigslist. Now that I need a replacement I'm hoping I can find it cheaper. I remembered DealExtreme.com sold it for a little over $10 but apparently they stopped selling them. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

    If you're in the US and don't care to wait a great deal of time to receive it SimplyMods is fine and the price is fair considering. If you don't care, you're willing to wait about 2 weeks more or less, and want to save a few bucks 0shippingzone is probably what i'd recommend. If you want the above and have the want to help support this site there's ShopTemp.

    I'd recommend ShopTemp normally but since the coupon is no longer in effect they're not one of the cheaper right now. Up to you, look at all the ones tk listed and decide for yourself. Any of them are probably fine in the end.

    I got my AceKard 2i from GameKool in 8 days (including a weekend).
    http://www.gamekool.com/freeshipping-aceka...slds-p-184.html

    I didn't need it right away (I was expecting 2 weeks, IMO 8 days was fast) since my R4 still works (Thanks YWG!), and the price was great especially since it had free shipping.

    Apparently DX has been selling their cards through another website. It's http://www.ndscardsale.com. Same packaging and shipping address as DX, same SKU and price too.

    I really have to recommend simplymods, they have superb customer service. I've used them really good. The stuff ships fast and they even have a price guarentee.

    SimplyMods has been very good to me, so I really have to recommend them. Fast and cheap shipping, good prices, legit carts, nice customer service, etc.

    Not to be mean or anything since you were mugged,
    but I see that you're a regular member,havent you seen the stickies in the NDS - Flashing Hardware and Software section?

    There's the info you want like
    - List of flashcard dealers to never buy from *updated 2009*
    - GBAtemp's Official List of Flashcart Dealers

    have you read them thoroughly before asking? or have you read and havent seen the answer(which probable not since you're asking where to get flashcarts)
    because if you didnt, it's against the board rules

    If that was enforced in the manner you are suggesting, 95% of the topics on here would be deleted.

    If you're suggesting someone reads through 36pages of posts before posting, it isn't going to happen.
    The "GBAtemp's Official List of Flashcart Dealers" you've linked to hasn't been updated since Dec 13 2007

    Also.. I really wouldn't exactly call him a regular -- no offense to morrisseyshair.

    He has 167 over 6 years (0.07 posts/day average), by comparison you have 130 posts in 1 month (4.33 posts/day average).
    He sounds like someone who has been coming here for a long time, but rather infrequently.

    Probably not. I've recently ordered an Acekard2i from them (just plain card, nothing else) and there was no mention about a metallic pen on the invoice. Perhaps a pleasant surprise is to happen when I open the package? [​IMG]

    You had to 'opt-in' to get it. When you're placing your order, there is a dropdown box called "promotion":

    Damn!
    /slaps forehead
    That will teach me to be more careful when ordering next time [​IMG]
    One more question: This card should be Dsi XL-ready right? 'Cause I'm planning to get me a DSi XL and it seems 0ShippingZone supply pre-patched Acekards.
    I know this is totally off-topic but can anyone recommend/discourage me from buying a DsiXL before I place my order? Is the price difference worth it for the big screen alone?
    I must add, I've always had only a DS Lite, this is the first time I'm going to 'upgrade' and I can't decide between DSi and DSi XL.
    TIA
