UNEASYreview: CycloDS Evolution

While I have had a Nintendo DS for well over a year now, I was always looking to do more with it. For the last 6 months I had been thinking about a DS-XTREME, yet the price for a 2GB card cost as much as a new DS- so it didn’t seem cost effective. Googling around, I found the CYCLODS Evolution which basically did the same thing, yet allowed the user to use removable MicroSD (Tansflash) cards instead of having internal memory, and was more than half the price of the DS-XTREME.

The card arrived in the mail today. The box contains the DS cartridge, a MicroSD to USB dongle and instructions (which was absent from my box…). Adding backed up games of mine to a MicroSD card was as easy as drag and drop. Similarly, select videos and music worked when I just dragged them to the flash card and put them in the cartridge.

Some of the real benefits to using this cartridge I have seen are:
+Ability to Adjust LCD brightness during game play (NDSLite only)
+SlowMotion mode which can be used to slow down game play
+Supports the MicroSDHC specification, allowing for new high capacity memory cards (so far up to 4GB)
+Seamless saves in-game

There are a ton more features that I have yet to try out; ebook reader, cheat codes and booting straight into the last game used.

This is a great product in my eyes, and has helped to breathe new life into my DS.
