@SanjiX: I agree with you there, however, the best Slot-2 cart out there will always be the M3 Lite Perfect. =P

The only thing I liked better about my R4 is the way it displayed icons, on the bottom screen in the gray box, like it would in the DS menu.

The Acekard has the icon by itself to the left of the ROMs filename.
