    My friend is an official Supercard dealer, and he hooked me up with one a week ago.

    It's sort of disappointing, but hopefully updates will fix all that.

    Ordered: Dec. 17 *while it was on back order*
    From: Kick Trading
    Status: Processing [​IMG]

    I've ordered from there before, also when they had a back order*, but I still got it pretty quick. I 'spose the holiday season is having its impact on the postal service tho [​IMG]

    Ock well, I'm in no rush really [​IMG]

    I would say that is a good deal, but that is compared to prices I'm able to find in the US. Thailand is A LOT closer to China in respect to the US, so I would have to say that you should shop around, and maybe you can find a better price/deal. I was hoping to go to thailand to get one, but I don't think I'll be making a trip next year.

    I think 40$ is the best price in thailand (for this moment at least). I think I'll wait for a month and hoping the price will drop.




    Or maybe I'll just getting m3 simply instead, I already saw ez5 but it doesn't as good as I expected...

    It's worse than a Supercard Lite, and the SC-DS is even newer.

    Some games are unplayable like AC:WW due to the fact it takes like forever to load the world, and I've noticed a few extended loading times that weren't there on my M3L:SCL. Only some games have problems though, e.g. both Castlevanias (I have to set it to 4X speed so DoS' intro is smooth and so PoR doesn't freeze on my 1GB Kingston)

    The touch screen technology implemented in the menu is also very bad. Sometimes I would go to change the SD Speed in the options, and it would load a game under the SD Speed pop-up. They should also make games have a pop-up that says "Load XXXXXX? Yes, or no?" because it's a single tap and if you mistaken tap the screen, it'll boot up the game and you'll have to restart again.

    But, the good thing is that it seems pretty well built. The menu is very skinnable due to the fact it revolves around Moonshell (although I hate that blasted splash screen that pops up). And I'm confident that in a few updates, this baby will be awesome.

    I will certainly get mine once they improved and fixed their software/firmware, seems newer games are not working as expected and even older games still have some trouble runing. I was expecting more of the Supercard team.

    Well if all else fails there is always the M3 DS Simply. [​IMG]

    M3 DS Simply huh.......I'm sorry but that has to be the WORST name I've ever heard for a flashcart. That name alone is turning me off from buying one lol. Even if it kicks more ass than any other slot-1 card, that "simply" would just annoy me to death lol. [​IMG]

    hmm as for it not performing so well so far.. i dont mind patching..

    I ordered my Supercard DS on christmas eve. I bought a 512 MB micro sd card months ago because i saw it cheap(40$ AUD) They are sending it out on the 29th of december. I got it from the supercardstore because they were very cheap. Was going to get it from www.hopebuy.com but extra 18$, I can wait an extra week (First post ever)

    Same reason I chose supercardstore. Cheap. $49.99 including shipping, and from what I've read, they're shipping times are pretty decent. I had just grabbed a 1GB Kingston about a week ago for $10 ($30 - $10 Google Checkout Promo - $10 MIR + $0 Free Shipping). As soon as that shipped, I ordered the SCDS.

    @ambitious21: I hope so as well. They say they're backordered till the 29th, but I wonder exactly how many more they're getting in as well as how many people have been queued up while on backorder. Hopefully, they get enough and just ship all of em at the same time.
