    There's heaps of stuff on here about it, as well as other places, but most people (including myself) will recommend the R4DS. The CycloDS has more features (mainly SDHC compatibility if the new R4 update is coming soon), but is more expensive, and for the price, the R4 can't be beaten. [​IMG]

    Yet another poll without the SC-ONE. I would say buy the SC-ONE. Cheap easy to use, in game cheat function, slow motion in game,full skinnning,etc. The only cards at the moment to support SDHC right now are the CycloDS and the DSLinker because they keep their firmwares on a seperate part of the flashcart(not on the microsd). This means carts like the R4,EZ-V,SC-ONE,etc can do it. The SC-ONE's micro firmware got upgraded so that might be a step towards built in firmware(which could suppot SDHC).

    If you are not concerned about price, get the G6DS Real [​IMG]

    SC-ONE isn't bad anymore unless you have anything but the Kingston/Toshiba Japan cards, and it is sold at a price which allows it to compete with the R4.

    ahtin told me that R4 was out of stock for one or two months, so that may cut that choice out for a while.

    Why is the DS-X even ON that list?! It's proven to be the one of the worst. [​IMG]

    I voted R4.

    IMO, SC-ONE should be there instead of DS-X.

    G6DS Real, R4 is just hyped up but it isn't anything special, plus, I hate removable storage.

    I'd say R4. With the new firmware, it now has more download play compatibility than G6DS Real. Personally, I prefer removable storage because it's expendable. I've got one for little more than a month and nothing bad to say.

    Why is the ncard always ignored?
    It is cheapest, has soft reset, has always has 100% compatibility with all roms and requires no laggy micro sd card!
    It is great for people that just want to play commercial roms, yet it is ignored!

    I would say R4 as well. You just have to look at bamboogaming. The new stock of the R4 is sold out before it even arrives. They arn't taking any orders until they can confirm when the new stock is arriving.

    I voted R4, i just got my 1st flashcart about a month ago, which was the CycloDS Evolution, which I love, the reason I got it at the time is because of the download play support, but now the R4 is just as good. So for the $ R4 hands down, then the G6 Real 16GB, then the CycloDS. I think my next flashcart will be the G6 Real 16GB.

    Either way me personally, R4, G6 Real, or CycloDS, you cant go wrong.

    I say R4, cyclods comes second as of right now, because we have to wait a while to see if they will continue to support their card.

    I dont see how the R4 is more compatible. Looking at GBATemp's own review, it has many more incompatibilitys than an EzFlash.

    Most all incompatibilities with the R4 have been resolved with newer updates.

    And the R4 will never support SDHC as it requires different hardware also. SDHC hardware is backward compatibile, but plain SD is not forward compatible.

    GBAtemp's review is based on a launch unit with launch firmware. One of the big problems with relying on reviews for flashcarts is that things can change so fast that more often than not reviews can be outdated a couple weeks after they're put up.
