    If you have an R4DS or a M3 DS Simply, I can definitely recommend the EZ 3 in 1 Expansion Pack. I just got mine yesterday and with Rudolph's manager, it works flawlessly.

    The M3 Lite perfect seems to be the least technically intrusive. It works with clean roms larger than 32 MBytes, saves after reboot, great support, but is the most expensive. M3-Lite-Perfect also has a real-time-clock (RTC), that's necessary for people that like the Pokemans. It has a multitude of features that I will not get into. Look into the reviews for M3 Perfect CF/SD. The Lite Perfect is just a different form factor with GBA-NDS Linkage and utilizes MicroSD (like GBA pokemon transfer to Diamond/Pearl).

    I personally would get that or EZ4, EZV-3-in-1, Supercard Lite if you really need a quick fix, but I would save up for M3 Perfect Lite for most seamless functionality. The ones I mentioned need a bit of twiddling with, but I personally would get irritated after a couple of months. If somebody has better experience or knowledge, please help kemosabe out. I don't have one yet because I'm still ~fine with the original GBA games that I bought. I am starting to get tired of the 1cm stickout thing, and I would like to have something less obstructive when I play minish cap, mario advance, etc.

    i agree with thaigrocer, the best solutions are the ez 3 in 1

    and the m3 lite perfect, i personally have a ez 3 in 1 and this

    is great if you only want to play a few gba games, and want

    rumble, but if your a hard core gba gamer then you should

    go with the m3, it is the best slot 2 solution for gba in my eyes,

    they both can be used with a patch for the web browser and

    play gba game, so basically:

    Go for the :

    EZ 3 in 1 if: you want only a few gba games at a time, rumble,

    web browser and a generally a cheaper option.

    M3 lite perfect if: you want to be able to play lots of gba games

    seamlessly, web browser, and dont mind paying quite a bit but

    for a quality product.

    i hope ive been some help [​IMG]

    For under $30 you can have rumble, ram, and gba support with EZV3in1. It's a nice featured cartridge but it's a little tight when you try to fit it in the DSL and you have the 1mm sticking out at the end. The cartridge isn't as smooth and nice as the blank cartridge that come with the DSL. Some gba games needs patching but it run well with 3in1 loader.
