Can anyone explain to me the difference between these two cartridges?
I understand the Mega Everdrive has a USB port for dev purposes, and that it can support savestates. But other than that, what is the difference? Yeah you can go back to the menu without hitting the power button, but I understood the latest version of the software for the Everdrive MD will do the same.

It says the games load in 1/2 seconds. Is flashing faster or does this not flash at all (kinda working like a NDS Acekard or something)? The description does refer to both as "flash cartridges" though.

I don't understand what is the vast improvement over the Everdrive MD and why it costs 140+ dollars (almost double the price an EMD).
I would like to hear it from those who have one or understand what's so much better!

My roommate owns one of each (he's into the MD dev scene), he says the MD is the one to go for, for sake of ease of use, flashing, and general compatibility with ROMS. Not to mention it will do 32X stuff.

EDIT: relevant thread on ASSEMBLERgames to skim through http://www.assemblergames.com/forums/sh … EverdDrive

But supposedly the MegaED is a better device, high end as krikz say, and still compatible with 32X.
I'm quite happy with my MD excpet for the revision I have which has no hardware Megakey. The software Megakey introduced on the 3.x OS just doesn't work, I still need a hardware Megakey.

Feels to me like it's not worth it at all.
