    I'd go with the AceKard 2i. I got one because it is one of the best and most updated (AKAIO loaders) carts around and the 2i will still have a purpose if I decide to upgrade to a DSi at some point in the future.

    I personally wouldn't recommend DealExtreme... I ordered the AK2i from them (good card BTW), and although they guaranteed 3 day shipping, it got to me over 3 weeks later, and that was only after putting in two issue reports (or whatever you call them), and then threatening to cancel my order... (They wouldn't let me cancel it straight out, I had to put in a report, then it immediately shipped the day after...). Also to note, the AK2i they sent me does not look like the picture on the site (has a metallic look to the sticker), and did not come in the same box as pictured. This may be due to the card getting a new version/upgrade, as the card seems legit enough, and runs wonderfully. I would recommend the AK2i, it seems to be the newest of the group, and will run on the DSi if you ever decide to upgrade. Hope this (wordy!) post helps you any!

    Where in the hell did the guarantee you 3 day (free not ems) shipping? They say they will ship it out in 1 to 3 days though more likely a week is correct at least for me.

    When they guaranteed me the 3 day free shipping, it was a special they were having in late Sep. Early Oct. of this year (2009). That is what so urged me to buy it.

    the AK 2i is one of the best flash carts that i have used, it is well built, and if you use AKAIO, then it is even better than with the ofw.

    i ordered my AK 2i from dealextreme. it took a few of weeks, but that's because i ordered a pandora battery with it also.
    my brother also ordered one and it came even faster than mine! about 2 weeks.

    Unless you're patient, don't buy from DX.


    I think RealHotStuff is a good place, right?
