    Which one do you have most interest in or intend to buy?

    What are your reasons?

    Myself, seeing as I have a flashed DS Lite. I prefer the DSLink just because it fits entirely flush and you have nothing sticking out. [​IMG]

    Even though the ROMs must still be patched, it's very simple to do and compatibility is high.

    I think the Xtreme for now, since seeing that video with it connected to a Mac with no patching software... I understand others would be more into the AceKard with it's expandable memory.

    I voted the DS-Link and my reasoning is that it is the only one I have found to be available.

    I think the AceKard looks excellent but will have to wait until it's released and reviewed to form too much of an opinion.

    DS-Xtreme, well I don't think too much of the 512MB non expandable memory. I do like the nifty mini USB connector though. Still waiting for the reviews.

    Ninja DS looks promising. I can wait for a version that wont stick out though...

    NeoFlash will have to do alot of updating to their older products before I can even think of 'possibly' getting one of their carts. NinjaPass I know next to nothing about. And M3? I thought the M3 slot 1 cart was just a rumour.. has anything been confirmed yet?

    Anyway, except that Tony Hawk wont run I'm very happy with my DS-Link. I'm very pleased with the interface which is a major thing for me.

    I'm with shaunj. I'm interested in getting a DSLink. My ds is flashed anyway, so the lack of a passme doesn't bother me. Plus I have a 1gig microsd card that I'm not using right now.

    my DS isn't flashed and I like the drag&drop thing!
    I vote for the DS-Xtreme for now... because we don't really know much about Acekard.

    I'm just waiting to see which one turns out to be the best one. The DS-Link seems the best one at the moment, but I don't like it not having passme built in and having to have flashme installed. If it had passme installed you wouldn't invalidate your warrenty by installing flashme. I'm happy with my supercard lite at the moment, if supercard make a good slot 1 DS kit I'll probably get one.

    I'll favor whichever kit gets released in time for Gyakuten Saiban 2 (Phoenix Wright 2)'s release date: Oct 26.


    I voted for the X-treeeeeeeeem kit because I'm a mac user as well and so far it seems like it'll work with OS X. I really don't care about the price as long as it plays and saves fine.

    Space.
    Acekard: seems like it has the most potential. Since the Slot-1 cards won't be playing gba games, I'd like to use removable media if possible. The interface doesn't matter to me (as long as the cart plays clean).

    I'll be waiting on reviews before I make a final decision though.

    Seems Acekard gives good head...line.

    I voted for the Acekard 'cause I've been waiting a looong time for a flashkit that at least SOUNDS like it won't require a PassMe at any point in it's usage. Plus, I want something that doesn't require patching, because I'm more interested in development than... well, other stuff [​IMG] I already own 23 DS games, I'm not hurtin' for more domestic titles [​IMG]

    Just get the original: http://www.play-asia.com/SOap-23-83-3bld-7...-j-70-1iyq.html

    On topic: I still don't get the concept of slot 1 flash kits. What do we need them for? [​IMG] Maybe you could add a poll option "I'm not interested in slot 1 flash kits."

    Maybe it's because we know how much the others suck but there is still hope for Acekard... [​IMG]
