    I have been looking for a store that sells the R4i Gold 3ds version in the United States. My budget is 10-15 dollars.

    I suggest GBAtemp's official sponsor nds-card.com, buying from them supports the Temp! :yay:
    Also they use paypal!

    Shipping depends on your option. You go the free route, it says it can take up to weeks, but I actually managed to get mine one a little less then 2 weeks

    Totally recommend R4onlinestore owned by William Murphy of Ireland. Very quick postage and replies personally if you need any help. Very reasonable priced R4, R4i, Gold etc

    Please buy from nds-card.com
    By doing so, you pay a little bit to the website, keeping it up.!

    I just want to point out that you're probably going to be better off buying an Acekard 2i, since it has a single site with all the updates.

    The Official R4i Gold 3DS does too.

    True, seeing as they've just sorted the 4.2.0.9 block it probably is the best choice

    Actually the R4i Gold got the update out way before the AK2i.

    "Official" R4i Gold doesn't exist.

    Actually coming from someone who owns both the R4i Gold and Acekard 2i, I suggest going with the R4i Gold.
    A few reasons I can list: R4i Gold has faster updates both for Wood R4 and the card's firmware, Wood R4 has pretty most of the features of AKAIO just simplified, and the card doesn't have that annoying connection issue.

    Acekard 2i is a great card, but other than AKAIO it's a bit flawed.
