I was planning to get an R4 device or something, but almost every website I go on is kinda shady. I don't want malware to be downloaded or my credit card information stolen. Do you have any suggestions for what website to use to buy it? Thanks!

I don't know where you have been looking thinking every website is shady but here is a good website.

Practically every website that sold R4 cards that one of my friends went on was blocked by MalwareBytes (including NDS Card). But anyways, it seems that the site you linked was okay, though. I'll add it to my bookmarks so I don't forget it.

I used to order from r4-3.com but now its gone and redirects to yeahgeek or something.
PeachDS used to be good but now it links to ebay listings so I don't know.

Personally, I prefer to buy cards off of members on the forums. Thats how I got a gateway for a little under $40 shipped.

Also, Nintendo's probably paid some AV companies to block flashcart sites.

Also also, any site accepting paypal is a scam.

I had this concern as well which is why I ended up using nds-card.com when I found out they accept PayPal. They are definitely not a scam as they are GBAtemp's sponsor and I received my order fairly quickly.

I saw R4i SDHC Dual Core 2016 cards for sale on Amazon... They are the same as the kind from r4isdhc.com
