    I'm looking into buying a R4 DS and live in the USA.
    I was wondering which vendor is the most reliable and safest to deal with. I don't want to get stuck with one of those fake R4 I have been hearing about.

    Thanks for your help people!

    If you're not in a hurry to receive your R4, buy it from DealExtreme, it's way cheaper, and the service is very good.

    I order from modchipstore.com and usually pay the 9.99 for 2nd day, however it always arrive the next day. They ship out of dallas texas. Excellent service.

    I ordered from Deal Extreme and it took a little under two weeks to get to my house from Hong Kong.

    They have a package which guarantees you will receive a Kingston 1gig microsd from Japan which is better than gambling with other sites which may ship a taiwanese or japanese microsd.

    it was only $43 shipped for me

    I think for the US, modchipstore.com is the best. I've ordered from them using DHL 2nd day. It only took 1 day to arrive!

    i gotta say realhoststuff as well...

    i got mine from Dealextreme though, EXCELLENT service, i was able to speak to the founder in no time, and we even chatted about what future products he may carry (i suggested the EZV + expansion xD lets hope it comes through). but it is rather slow shipping. but good people, good service, good product.
