yep agreed, the chances of you blowing your DS main fuse with fake cards like these is quite high, and replacing the fuse is not like changing a fuse in a 3 pin plug

A review on site ...

"its yet another in the long line of cards that use the r4 name to try to sell cheap ****** fake r4 cards to people who are to stupid to know better.

avoid this like you should avoid anything with the r4 name on it, the r4 is not made anymore."


Not my opinion, just a review on DX.

Here we go again, sick of DealExtreme posts on here, having to post again warning the dangers of buying these cards, they are fake

There is no such thing as an official R4 Revolution Pro, only one official R4 website.

Dealextreme are a joke, cold They sell fake memory, fake slot 1 cards, clone wii controllers marked as "OEM" you may as well p*ss your money up the wall the same as buying the same sort of sh*t from Ebay Hong Kong sellers, DealExtreme are no different with a variety of goods.

We are saying fake mate, because we know they are fake, deal extreme sell lots of fake stuff it's well known, alot of the items they sell is good stuff though.

Avoid them and only buy genuine cards otherwise you'll waste your money and would cause you problems.

Fake because the people who originally made the R4 where shutdown and stopped producing it. There are alot of fakes out there and some have dubious build quality so be careful when you buy one. R$ has become a name used by some as it was popular but there are loads of fakes. Many forums say that there is no way you can get an original R4 cart now!

Have heard the DSone is the new reliable successor?

I would love to see the day that moderators ban Dealextreme from HUKDs

There are stocks of original R4s out there still, Mrmodchips being one UK supplier that is reputable.

I have owned an R4 for 2 years, build quality is excellent and no troubles at all, as long as you are not bothered with SDHC support, and lets face it the DS is not very powerful for videos, stick with it as a homebrew/game rom card and its a great reliable slot 1 card.

So you know its fake, and know the dangers of fake cards and fuse blowing in the DS Lite, yet still find it funny to carry on posting more?!?! :roll:

Tip for anyone thinking of buying a N5 or a fake R4, perhaps this will encourage you to avoid, fancy this scenario :

I have a DS One, and it is a great card. It really isn't worth cutting corners with these things, you are better to just spend the money and enjoy the benefits of a good quality, genuine, card.
To tell the truth, I tried the R4 and M3 and much preferred the M3.

we cant stop peoeple buying these, all we are doing is making you aware of the risks and problems, if people still want to buy them go ahead!

you could try nearer home...I got this one....

Exactly what I keep on doing, and I am getting tired of it, prefer to see Dealextreme banned from HUKD

Why? There's plenty of great cheaply priced and real flashcards (e.g. AK2, TTDS etc.) and memory cards at DX at cheap prices, while people in the UK charge twice the money for something you can get cheaply from DX, with half the waiting time. Please realise that you get what you pay for. I once bought a 2GB OEM memory card from DX and actually got a Kingston one instead, and it works as well as any of my official UK ones...

Why? Because people do and will get ripped off with fakes,thats why

Since when has a deal been a deal when its fake?

Fake memory cards fund the black market, are poorly constructed, have no warranty and have dubious file allocation tables....the whole idea of buying a memory card is in my opinion to have a trustworthy storage device? no?

Far better if we ban these flashcards altogether. I mean there all used for piracy.

Or home brew:whistling: Actually, they can be good for homebrew especially for SCUMM etc, playing all those old skool (some which are now freeware) graphic adventures works really well on the DS with the touch pen replacing the mouse of the PC. I am sure they are mainly used for piracy, but they do open the world up more with the DS as an mp3 player or ebook reader and (weakly because of lack of processing power) video player.

I tried a video and it was rubbish. But these are great for photos and MP3s. Yes, there will always be piracy, even 'the cloud' will be hacked eventually. The fact is that piracy will always exist, and yes these cards are bought by most to play .nds files :whistling:
They do have completely legitimate uses though, and my DS works a hellova lot better than the silly little 2"x1" desktop photo viewer I got from PC World :?

Sorry, commenting is no longer available on this deal.
