Hi sorry guys. I'm new here, but I signed up a couple of weeks ago. I read the reviews for the flash cards and it seems that the choices are a M3 Real, and CycloDS. Some of my friends are recommending that I get a R4 cus of it's high compatibility, while others are suggesting a M3 Real and CycloDS. However, the CycloDS seems to be a bit too expensive for me, so at the moment I'm learning towards the M3 Real with Rumble Pack which costs around $37 at Deal Extreme. I checked around on the forums and many people are saying that the AceKard 2 is pretty good as well. Not too much people are really recommending the M3 until M3 Sakura comes out. I'm open to other flash cards as well. But I prefer to buy from Deal Extreme due to it's lower price. I can wait for the shipping since I'm currently in a May/June Rush mode to finish my units before exams so I don't have to summer school to complete a course. Edit: Please see post #4 as well.
