    R4 releases their firmware updates sooner, so i'd say R4

    The only reason you would ever buy a Simply over a R4 is if the Simply was cheaper. And because I have yet to see any Simply as cheap as I’ve seen the R4 I have no idea why anyone would ever buy an M3-Simply.

    I would buy the Simply because the flashcart looks better [​IMG]

    wasn't the m3 released first, therefor making the R4 a m3 clone? [​IMG]

    edit: a good clone, at that.

    >_< Gah! Just get the cheapest one! They're both the same.

    M3 has a prettier sticker, a nicer website, and better support from what I gather. R4 updates are released first and it has a larger user base.

    I got the M3 'cause the R4's were all sold out. Given the choice, I probably would have gotten whichever one my mouse clicked on first.

    iwakura: I've read different accounts that the m3 was released first, and the R4 was released first, so I'm still none the wiser.

    Quite sure R4 was. R4 was released near the start of December in China IIRC (it started international shipping midway)

    Get an R4 because the forums are very active and you'll get help fast, but most of 'em ahev been answered so searching would help a lot. Faster updates, and it's got a nice skinning site devoted to it: http://www.ndsthemes.com

    I have both R4 and M3S, and I have to say the spring loader in M3S is better in my case. R4 spring loader sucks.

    mag2005: Ooh, that's a good point. So many people have complained of the spring loader breaking on the R4's, but I've yet to hear of it happening on someone's M3... Though, now that I've said that, I'm sure someone will say it's happened to them [​IMG] Regardless, it hasn't been reported nearly as much.

    KMC: ndsthemes.com is for M3's as well.

    I thought the R4 was only $10 cheaper...

    And with the cyclo you're dealing with 100% download play compatibility, great support, higher SD card capacity, a staff who speaks english primarily...

    It's worth the little extra money, IMO.

    R4 are cheaper to buy and have more frequent firmware updates.

    It really doesn't matter, they were made in the same factory.

    Though I do favor the R4 [​IMG]
