    nds-card.com used to be the site endorsed by GBATemp, probably still is even if now quiet about it. They are hosted in China but the seller is pretty much the only legit/non-shady seller of DS Flashcarts and other things that I can think of. Bought 2 flashcarts from the dude and got every single one of them eventually.

    While I'm at it they don't sell the R4i Gold 3DS RTS anymore, there is a new version called the R4i Gold +, which in reality is the same cart but with a switch for built in ntrboot if you wanna hack your 3DS.

    Course I would honestly recommend the AceKard 2i over the others, it has the most compatibility with homebrew from my testing and has the same compatibility of the R4i (If you use AKAIO).

    i personally didn't want to buy from a china based seller, going through modchipsdirect instead since they ship from the US.
    i bought an R4i Gold + from them and received it pretty quickly, that being said i've seen people say some bad things about the site as well.

    my card also didn't come with the packaging that i've seen it come with, but that part didn't bother me personally.
