Old topic,many new users ask this question, so the post here. If you don’t know much about the flashcarts I will show you the differences and choose the best you want.
This is the most famous card on the market and on our sites. It’s not the first r4 card, but it’s the one that still keep updating and improve the stablility. We all know that the flashcart field is running down,but the R4i SDHC 3DS RTS is the most active team.What’s that mean ? you can get more stable card,the bugs can be fixed at the next kernel upgrade. So We always recommend new users buy this card.
Stable, support upgrade kernel and firmware,better compatibility,better quality hardware.
To the users:
1) You will always buy the working card no fake card. (the R4i Gold 3DS has higher fraction defective,many user got unworking card, we must replace it.)
2) You can enjoy more games on this card without problem
3) You can get more support and help
4) You can use it for a long time than the r4i Gold 3DS
5) This card support wifi download and provide more tools and game roms.
6) more easy to use than R4i Gold 3DS. The UI will be easy to handle.
With Gold package, that’s the name. Not mean it’s gold. It’s just a normal R4 Card. Why many sites sell this card on the first.Because the R4i Gold 3DS sell this card by themselves. So they have many sites in fact. The resellers on the official site are all their shop. That’s why many people know this card.
The most disadvantage of this card is the fraction defective,many people got bad card. We must replace it. Sometimes is the hardware problem,We test it OK,but users can’t use it with their micro sd card. Of course, if you don’t care this this card have almost the same funcitons as R4i SDHC 3DS RTS.
But We don’t recommend to buy this card.
If you want to choose one card from the two cards. Buy the R4i SDHC 3DS RTS.
