    Ignoring space issues (most EZ3s will be 1 Gbit NAND/"EZdisk" + 256Mbit NOR but later on there came the 2, 4 and 8 Gbit NAND models*) there the EZ3 has savestates, real time clock (granted that is only of use for pokemon and a handful of other games), better cheat support and rom compression (not much, especially after trimming, but it helps)

    *setting aside the possibility of debate on the 1Gbit EZ2 I reckon the 8Gbit EZ3 is the most sought after (and rare) GBA flash cart out there. Indeed I will end by saying best of luck to the OP but most people with EZ3s hang onto them or if they do part with them it will cost you a fair bit.

    What ever you do... Do not get the EZ-Flash III.

    Worst thing ever. I have one which I will sell if you REALLY want it...

    And why is it that you think that?

    You suggest someone NOT to buy something, but then right after that you offer to sell it to him?

    - Holds like 2 games maximum.
    - Writing speed is so slow. It tooks like 30 minutes for the two games.
    - I tried a while ago to get it to work again on multiple computers. There are no drivers or anything. The program came on a disc, which pretty much is dead now.
    - It's not actually made by EZF. I've seen threads on other sites where people have e-mailed them, and they said it's not their product.

    The only good thing that is that it runs the games fine, and Pokemon Emerald and Minish Cap are stuck on mine forever. It's really that terrible that I would warn someone how bad it is before selling it, but if they wanted it for some reason. Hey, I'll take the money.

    Haha, ok. I have all the stuff it came with. The cart, the wire, and adapter thingy. The only thing is the CD is long gone (I think it had one...) and that had the program on it. I found it once online, but it was a different version so I couldn't get it to work. It's probably possible though. Also, I've never shipped anything to anyone on the site, so I'm not quite sure how it works. Depending on how much shipping is, I'll sell it for $10-15.

    1- 1Gbit = 128MB. Games on the GBA are 32MB max.
    2- It's NOR memory. What would you expect?
    3- Windows XP.
    4- Who cares?

    Pros:
    + 1 gbit + 256mbit of space
    + Excellent rom compression feature
    + Uses less power than most other flashcarts
    + Instant save feature (EXTREMELY USEFUL)
    + Cheat feature
    + Supports all saves (ANOTHER IMPORTANT FEATURE IMO)
    + Amazing loader (plus it’s skinable)
    + Simple, easy to use flashing software (constantly being updated)

    Wait I am quite curious now- are you guys discussing a clone/similarly named device- I was aware of the EZ Flash Advance aka EZFA which is nothing to do with the EZTeam but that was ancient history. To my knowledge other than an R4 named cart which was an OEM EZ5i there has not been a clone of any EZ gear.

    The EZ3 that I was discussing and what I thought the OP was after?

    Were you guys thinking http://www.pocketheaven.com/ph/wiki/Extreme_Flash_Advance_II or http://www.pocketheaven.com/ph/wiki/index....EZF_Advance_III (which was a similarly named alternative device not related to either the EZTeam or those that made EZFA gear) ?

    The ez-flash III was made and produced by the ez team. I'm 100% sure of that. [​IMG]

    I have an EZ-Flash IV Lite Deluxe to trade if someone want to trade his EZ Flash III. You can choose the color. I have a black and a withe.

    And i'm not talking about the EFA III. EZ-FLASH III is a different flashcard made by EZ-TEAM http://www.ezflash.cn/discontinued/
