I've been waiting a while for them to get this particular card back in stock because i preferred it over the other alternatives...

This is the compact pack, so it lacks the distinctive packaging, but i think most people would just chuck that out anyway...


Deal Extreme ship the item from Hong Kong so it may take 10-14 days to arrive, and they allow you to pay via PayPal so you dont have to give your card details to them directly.
(Shipping/Handling/etc. is included in the listed price)

Yeah, we have two Cyclo's.

So easy to use and no patching required.

Good price for this though.

Deal Extreme is by far the cheapest place i could find this card (the other trustworthy places were roughly double the price, seeing as they tend to buy wholesale from deal extreme and then jack up the price...)

And this card is virtually the same as the CycloDS but one third of the price, which is why i was keen to get this particular card instead of the alternatives.

Edit to add:
I also dont see the problem with having to download a single file and copy it to your SD card along with the other files you're going to be putting on there anyway? lol

Unfortuntely, the CycloDS comes at a heafty price tag. I use these because I'm a cheap skate, they're stable, well built and havent had numerous companies clone it (though technically, this is a watered down clone of the CycloDS).

Excellent card, highly recommend it.

Be aware, you DONT get the box with this from DX (but who cares unless your selling them on)

HOT!

Suprised this deal hasn't been closed yet though, considering we can't sell DS Cards on here.

CycloDS has a much better support team behind it, and regular updates through an English support team.

Still a steal at this price! :thumbsup:

i've seen loads of DS cards on here before, are they really barred from being posted? I could understand them baring talk of P2P/etc. but not the actual product which has many completely legitimate functions?

As for the updates, most people i know never even need to update their DS Card firmware, and the Edge team still puts out regular updates.
In my mind this is by far the best card you can get for this sort of price, hence why i waited for this particular one to come back in stock.

Btw if anyone needs the english download page link, here it is: edge-ds.cn/?la…ads

R4 are banned as they are fakes. Voted Hot, nice cheap Cyclo clone.

You prefer the CycloDS? You prefer paying £30+ instead of £11-12?
I'd prefer to buy a Porsche, but my salary dictates that I can only afford a Subaru ;-)

The EDGE card has had numerous updates since it's launch, that are all readily available in english from the EDGE wesbite or other sites such as GBATemp

The EDGE card is one of the most stable basic flash carts out there. Yes it's a stripped down version of the CycloDS, but the majority of people using these cards do not need or would understand the extra features that the CycloDS brings.

In the end its each to their own I guess, I would love to go out and purchase a CycloDS but I can't justify the expense when the EDGE card does exactly what I need it to do.

what do these cards do plz ???

Remember NONE of these cards will currently work with the DSi!!

Cyclods does.

I have been waiting for them to get the edge card in for ages, finally gave in an ordered a TT ds card which came today! just my luck

Menus on the DSTT are SO slow with a 4GB card. Also had trouble with DSTT's not making proper contact and locking up/white screen. Edge Cards are far superior build quality. I ordered a few DSTT for exactly the same reason. Believe me, the Edge is worth the extra £3-£4 more.

acekard2 cheaper and better imo
plenty of flashcarts have an 'i' version which works on japanese dsi but ive read that (all?) current ones are blocked on the euro versions so will have to wait on new ones.

no fakes around - was a color change of components which confused people.
what can edge do better than ak2? only thing i heard its better at is 'build quality'.
As the acekard is up to being chucked around the room a few times i dont see what you would be doing whilst using the card to take advantage of this.
ak2 alot cheaper with akaio and not a clone.

As for the DSTT being slow i think thats either a formatting or folders issue which is easily fixed - id recommend those over edge if there weren't so many fakes of those around. Its basic and not up to ak2 but its only about 4quid with AK2 being 8 and edge higher again.

Slow menu's are not a formatting issue, it is a DSTT issue (see forums and reviews). I am perfectly aware of the folder limitation and the formatting issues. It is SLOW (compared with Edge anyway).

There was a faulty batch of AK2 carts according to GBATemp forums but I dont think its an issue any longer. Never used AK2 carts but they are supposed to be decent enough

In any case, yep... they all do pretty much the same thing so it user preference.

cyclops haven't even got a dsi card on the market afaik? They got a cyclo to work with dsi (not the first to) but didn't market a card.
The cards for ds and dsi are the same but with different programming doodas (to use the techincal term.)

the dsi cards only allowed you to use ds games anyway and not any of the dsi functions making them basically pointless.
and yeah guitar hero wont work.

sin_of_nature - never seen a slow menu post that wasn't a formatting or folder issue but then i dont look in those forums much as i dont have one

I have always used the M3 real, never had a problem with it.

Only using standard ds games though, won't be long before the dsi is cracked though.

yes very good - a video of them doing what others have already done but not actually releasing anything?
acekard dstt ezflash and prolly others already have marketed and sold carts which work on dsi - cyclo has not.

its been said that the dsi is way more complex in security than ds so i wouldn't hold your breath for TC to crack it anytime soon.

Thought they was one of the first, video was upped in november, Still haven't seen a dsi game running on a flash cart. Could you post a link please.

Are there any purely DSi games out then?

The EZFlash Vi is DSi compatible

I use ttds as it's cheap and chearful had a look at a few of the other cards and they have their pros and cons, as does the ttds but for the price alone I go back to the ttds everytime.

The only problem I have had unsolved is Star wars clone wars, which I seem to remember reading in cylclo forums that they were having problems as well so make up your own mind,

DSi games compatibality? I can't see much advances on the DSi and for a long time the main bulk of the catalogue will be DS games anyway and as most card companies seem to have the DS roms running on the DSi I doubt you would be missing much.

even if they were the first and only they released nothing.
as i already said others did but ofc none work with dsi exclusive content which is said to be far more complex in its security.
the ds games are the main point of these anyway seeing as there are probably over 1000 ds games and nothing much worthwhile on the dsi.

This just arrived today, still pleased with my purchase and im kinda surprised this didnt get warmer considering everywhere else selling these is about double the price.
