Plenty of updates for it fairly regularly, menu's look cool, especially when skinned.
Choice of Sakura or Touchpod software, both with their advantages/disadvantages, but mainly down to personal choice (Sakura seems to be less 'laggy' when going through the menu's)
its really east to setup, easy to use, does the job, pretty well built.
Is it better than the Acekard? no idea! :P but you wont be disapointed if you get one.
