    My wife has my old EZIV, and her Zelda PH save just got screwed. I want to get her an R4 because I've had no problems with mine. We are going on a trip in about 2 weeks and want her to have the new card by then. Who should I order from? Who has the quickest shipping? Not worried about price because most vendors seem to be within a few $$$ of each other. Thanks

    I was thinking about getting it from Real Hot Stuff because they are located in NJ. Anyone have good experience with them?

    Yes, realhotstuff are great, apparently. You can even phone them and ask them how long the shipping will take [​IMG]

    Try modchipstore.com. They're located in the US. My R4 was arrived to California in 2 days.

    You can order from Gameyeeeah, I orderd mine on AIS mail got here in 12 days.. You should really use the option that makes it 5-6 days or something..

    Ouch !! thats no good, I've order quite a few from them never took more than 10days.

    RHS is the way to go in US, I wanted to order a GBA size EZ flash 3in1 for my Phat DS as I can't seem to get them anywhere, but they wanted more for postage(to Uk) than the flash cart cost, grrr... now Im stuck where to get one (everywhere seems just to have the lite version now)

    Yup and be carefull as some sites say their version can support both phat and lite DS's

    Another crap thing about dealextreme i'd forgotten, on their site it says 3in1 works on both phat+lite DS, even the box pic says it does, but a comment from a buyer says "this does not work in a phat DS" I emailed them about this pointing out what i'd read saying i wanted to buy one, but needed it for a phat DS. They replied saying "out supplier says it does." WTF?!?!? (this was about a month ago) I'm still desperate to get a 3in1 but don't want to pay stupid amount of postage!!

    I second Dealextreme being slow.

    My package took 16 days to arrive... Unless you pay extra for UPS or something along those lines ofcourse.

    Real Hot Stuff is pretty fast, but the shipping charges are a RIP. DealExtreme on the other hand, has no shipping charges, but takes FOREVER and a half to ship things.

    Mod-Chip.com is a great place to buy from and is quite speedy if you use UPS Express though I think USPS would be good too.

    They ship from Vienna though so after all you might be better off with a US based vendor like RHS.

    Yup... I didn't order from RHS because their shipping prices. [​IMG]

    Try Gameyeeeah.com

    They ship within 3 Days with DHL... But it costs 20 bucks. [​IMG]

    I got the shipping notification about an hour after I ordered. I don't mind paying a few bucks more for piece of mind knowing I'll get it before the trip.
