Where to buy R4 or similiar for DS

Hey guys

The mrs is getting a DS for xmas and I want to get her one of those R4 things my mate has for watching movies/listening to music (basically stuff psp can do as standard).

Amazon have a few but:
  1. Its either marketplace...urgh
  2. Im not sure which is the best (?) one

Thanks

one of my work colleagues loves the R4, I suppose as long as it does what its supposed to theres not reet much difference, however the new version does seem feature packed...R4 III Upgrade

Plus you can get many backups on a 16GB card, plus the no lag in games, I have read can be an issue on some backup devices, I always thought though that that could be to using cheap shoddy SD cards...

B-A-R-G-A-I-N .... one thing that did worry me though was this very worrying item .. what is it...aria moving into fahion and microdirect moving into cooker hoods (check the cooling and power section at microdirect) is the credit crunch forcing component resellers into other ventures????
