CycloDS Evolution Review

 

When the CycloDS Evolution was first introduced to the market, the team behind the flashcard made quite huge claims. And so, Nintendo DS fans everywhere were split into two factions – one group facing the flash card with anticipation, and the other with wariness. This conflict in reception is perfectly understandable because Nintendo gamers, just like most people, are almost always bombarded with hype; so much so, that it could be hard to distinguish hype from the real thing. This article is a description of the said product.

The Features

The CycloDS Evolution flash card has complete plug and play support. It also works on any operating system and has a hundred percent ROM compatibility. It has full download play support and has 'extra' features that are actually more than extras, such as action replay and a cheat code engine. It supports FAT16 and FAT32, and the MicroSHDC (high capacity memory cards) specification. It is also easy to use and has a skinnable user interface. In addition to these, it likewise supports both touch screen and button operations. There is also the Enhanced Mode feature that provides unique gameplay features such as LCD brightness adjustment, slow-motion mode and the soft reset option to bring you back to the main menu easily. The DLDI auto-patcher is also included for topnotch homebrew compatibility. Moonshell is also pre-included for multimedia playing.

The Word on the Street

Prior to the firmware update (from 1.1 to 1.2), there have been incompatibility issues. These have been resolved since. On a positive note, gamers were raving about the DLDI auto-patching feature as it makes things faster and easier for homebrew downloads.

There is also virtually no lag or freezing. However, this seems to depend on the SD card used. There were some complaints of slowdowns that occurred with the use of certain non-branded 1G SD cards, but things were alright when 1GB Kingston cards were used. This emphasizes the fact that only high quality Micro SD cards should be used for gaming.

The Verdict

The best things about the CycloDS Evolution are the full download play support, 100% ROM compatibility, the user friendly interface, Micro SDHC support, the enhanced mode feature and the good skins that are easily available for the operating system. With the SDHC card support, better gaming experience is possible - all because of its excellent read and write speeds. There is also no need to hook up to the PC because advanced actions can be enabled and disabled through the game menu.

CycloDS isn't perfect, though. The card doesn't look topnotch, but it does fit well. The flash card also requires a good SD, although come to think of it, you really do need a good SD for gaming, anyway. It also costs a bit more than other flash cards available in the market.

The CycloDS Evolution is a high-end topnotch product that lives up to its creators' promise. If you want high-end gaming goods and an awesome gaming experience, then this card is the perfect choice.

Found the CycloDS DSi + 16GB Micro SDHC Memory Card was perfect for my needs. Works beautifully in both DS & DSi consoles. I live in Australia and delivery was very prompt within about a week.

This product is very good, easy to use and easy to set up. I have already bought two and this is my third. My GrandChildren are really made up with them. The Price is very right as well. This is an A+ Buy.

Bought 2GB SD card and a DSi CycloDS Evolution card, received within a few days and good communication via e mail. Have used R4 before, but finding that lots of new games not working. Followed instructions and downloaded software from this site and works perfectly. Be careful to follow instructions to the letter. It works fine on a normal DS Lite, and some (not all) of the games I couldn't get working on a normal R4 are now working. Have now ordered more. Would definitely buy from here again, very trustworthy.
