    I am in the market to get a new card and I'm tossing around the idea of either the AK2I or Iedge, I currently have used a few different cards( R4, DSTT, R4I Gold, and Edge) and want to get a new card. Which one of these 2 would you guys suggest based on support and compatibility? Any help or suggestions would be greatful.

    Well from my research AK2i fits my needs with a great firmware and some basic features. The Iedge however seems to have a few extra features such as slow motion.

    Here's a basic comparison on shoptemp: [​IMG]

    Personally AK2i seems the best choice to me. A good place to buy they Ak2i and cheap is simplymods.com. I'm almost certain they're legit and they offer the cheapest prices around along with fast shipping. Also you could wait for supercard2 but it depends on if you need those extra features or not.
