Which is the Best Flashcart for 3DS Roms?

We are paying attention to the 3DS flashcarts for a long time. As we known, Gateway 3ds is the first one can run 3DS roms and NAND-emulate.
Then R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe and 3DSLink Released with cheaper price.
At the end, MT-Card 3DS came out, which was the first and only 3ds flash card can support multi 3ds roms in one Micro sd card, it really has many powerful functions for players,  and just now , we noticed MT-Card official reseller Digimartz.com news: MT-Card V1.1 firmware & V1.2 Hardware released!  With this update , it can support NAND-emulate, region free,ESHOP,NAND backup, the popular 3ds games are all available(such as Pokemon X/Y , Animal crossing …) . And so far as I known, the V1.2 firmware , which fixed many eshop games (eg: Harmo Knight , Phoenix Wright 5, Super mario bros deluxe) , will be coming soon!
So, till now, MT-Card’s functions and also the great value are the best 3ds flashcart as i known. Even for the OMEGA 2.1 firmware released , the GATEWAY 3DS‘s  multirom function had been extended and become the 2nd to support 3DS Multi-ROM.

Brand new MT card review updated

MT card as the world first multirom support 3ds flashcart ,  such as the multirom , emunand, eshop games, pokemon xy available  those wonderful features brings us new feelings in gaming experience.  Perhaps , we are eager to know more about the mt card by a professional review for us.

Today , the gbatemp.net released a   review for brand new MT card formally : http://gbatemp.net/review/mt-card.138/ 

The review can make us more easily understand the mt-card through Packaging and Contents,Design and Impressions,Hardware Requirements,Software Requirements,Grey Shell Flashcart Setup,White Shell Flashcart Setup and Compatibility… And lastly getting an objective conclusion below

+ Easy setup and use
+ Ability to back-up save files
+ Works with all currently dumped games 04/10/2014
+ Local multiplayer works
+Region free
+Firmware spoof
- No online gameplay
- Only supports FAT32
- No homebrew (yet)
- Requires a 3DS on older firmware
7 Presentation
As far as 3DS flashkits go in terms of presentation the MT-Card is pretty average. The flashcarts are stocked in blister packaging with resealable plastic cases. The 3DS flashcart is made of a nice durable plastic which could last through your typical wear and tear. It also has teeth to leverage the device against the 3DS as well as metal screws to secure the PCB in the shell. On the top of the shell there’s a switch, micro USB port, and microSD card slot. The DS flashcart included on the other hand is just a restickered R4 made with lesser quality plastic, doesn’t have teeth, and is held together by small plastic pegs.
9 Gameplay
Gameplay on the MT-Card is pretty much the same as you’d expect on a retail 3DS game with a couple exceptions. The exceptions being that online multiplayer features do not function and roms take a couple seconds longer to boot. With the addition of multirom you’ll be able to flawlessly transition from game to game without having to re-flash a rom to your microSD card.
8 Lasting Appeal
With the MT-Card’s latest 1.2 update the MT-Card is now able to play all currently dumped roms regardless of region. That being said having the entire 3DS game library at your disposal to play will last you quite a long time and the only downside I see to this is having trouble deciding what game to play.
9.0 Overall (not an average)
With all things considered the MT-Card has a good build, works as advertised, and is getting updates from the MT-Card team. The only downfalls being no online functionality in titles, it only supports FAT32 formatted microSD, it currently doesn’t allow you to play homebrew, and that it requires a 3DS on 4.5 or lower to use it.
