Cheapest price around I think, can be found here;

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.1202

There's another 'package' one (with a 1GB Kingston card) for $43/£22, that can be found here;

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.1459

They accept Paypal and they are shipped from HK (with them being made there, I presume thats why they're so cheap). A few gaming websites have had the deal listed for the last few weeks and received there's already - according to those who have received them, they're the proper deal, not fakes.

:Boo:

Says the server is busy for me.

The forum I got the website from was rllmukforum, who found it on worldofstuart forums. Both sites have about 15 pages combined with plenty of those people saying they've received them, so I don't think it's a con.

EDIT: Site is back up, just really slow right now.

Lads,

A bargain is only a bargain if the transaction works out....

As mentioned Chris in Supercardworld has the deal of an R4 + 1gig Micro SD ram f0r £40. - including postage.

Fair enough, you might find it cheaper coming from HK or somewhere but at least with Chris you will get the goods (from the UK). You will also get a quality backup service if anything goes wrong.

Its got to be worth the extra few quid...and to be honest his prices are VERY competitive.

Just my tuppence worth but I have been stung in the past when buying from dodgy sites.

Agreed, if you want a top service (before and after) and it to be delivered from the UK, pay the extra £18 for it from supercard (thats still as cheap as you're going to get buying within the UK) - if you're just looking for it to be as cheap as possible (in monetary terms ;) ) this seems to be the best option. Personally, I don't mind waiting for it to get delivered from HK.

I did wait a few weeks before posting it because I hadn't heard of the site, but 15+ pages of people receiving the item, it seems to be pretty legit. The site now has a messege on it saying the following;

Thank you for visiting DealExtreme
We are currently experience an unexpected hardware failure on our main web server and we are working 24 hours a day to fix it. ETA is March 22, 2007.

Current orders are being packaged and shipped normally so please do not worry.

In the meantime, please feel free to send questions to our alternative e-mail address at dealextremeATgmailDOTcom for the time being.
As I havent received mine yet, I can by no means say the site is 'not dodgy' but about a hundred odd people who have got theirs says otherwise.

Just received mine, went for the $43 package and the price was marked down to 25HKD (£1.62), so no customs charges or anything;

Quite happy that the Kingston card was also the Japanese version which is supposed to work the best with the R4DS (so i've read).

I ordered on the 16th and it arrived 11 days later, so it wasn't too bad (took an age to ship, but I think that's because they were out of stock when I first ordered).
