    Some people on this forum love the new R4 Shell, the one w/o the spring. Some think it's pretty ugly, and prefer their old ones with the spring. Which one do you like better?

    I'm gonna vote the Old One, since..well, I'm gonna own it in about 7 days. Well, pretty sure I am.
    Anyway it's kinda safer for me I guess, but I do think it looks worse than the older one. I don't like no rib cage :[
    Anyway, what about you?

    Over there.
    I have a great detest for the spring that can be described as large. That's why I removed mine from the old one. Some people like the spring for conviency, I don't.

    To be honest looks shouldn't matter, the only thing that really matters is functionality. The newer shell doesn't brake as it hasn't got a spring, which is the only thing wrong with the original.

    For the sake of facts, I have an original. [​IMG]

    I don't care either way, as long as it works. I just ordered my second R4, and I hope to get a white shell. The spring, again, doesn't matter as long as the card works fine.

    My first R4 is the old model, with the spring, and it's worked flawlessly since I've had it.

    You will love the old one right up to the point when the springs breaks.

    Then you'll all come crying.

    That said, if I had a choice between the old shell and new, spring or no spring it would look like this.

    You boys really need to find another hobby (hint, cough, girls, cough...) to waste your time with while waiting for packages from China.

    Life's too short to worry about this crap.

    You liked that huh? [​IMG]

    About one minute. I can wrangle Excel in my sleep. The hard part was doing the screen capture and throwing the image out to imagebucket so you grognards could see it!

    I haven't seen anything other than pics of the new shell. I don't even personally know anyone other than myself who owns a flash cart. Based on that, and the fact that I have a true second gen (language jumper intact) R4, I'll vote old.

    You seem like a nice person (especially because you use puntuation and grammar properly).

    I don't think he "liked" your excel document... he asked how much time you "wasted" making it.

    p.s. I don't even know who Ed Bundy is.

    New one... If everyone had it, I think they'd all vote for the new one.

    The spring is easy as cake to pull out. On the older one, it wasn't too much of a problem. The MicroSD slot was a bit small for my fingers.

    I haven't had any problems with the spring on my old one. As long as it keeps working, I'll say I prefer it, because it means I don't have to pull the R4 out of my DS to swap the contents of my microSD card.
