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!

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.

You are buying a shady cart, from a shady part of China (which is a pretty shady country,) giving shady people money, to send you a cart for piracy. The entire situation is shady.

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.

    @BigOnYa My dad recently bought a spare Series X off of me, got game pass, and saw Madden '24 on Game Pass, decided to try it out.

    ...He was a bit taken aback by the 60GB download size. Poor guy's still living in the 90s!

    @K3Nv2 He was looking into consoles for his house anyway (for my younger siblings and himself) and I had a spare XSX and Switch I ended up selling him at pretty steep cuts. I would just give them to him, but I did buy them with the intent to sell them... and college is super expensive.
