I received it finally yesterday. It looks like a game boy cart in which one puts a micro SD cart (32 GB max) with no need of opening it each time.. I have filled the Sd with about 2 GB and my daughter (6 yo) has now more than 500 GBC (or DMG) games at disposal. Takes time (well, ten seconds max , may be depending on the SD trans-speed), "load, erase, write and then display" games in good conditions.
It was well-packaged, 21 day-delivery from the Ukraine to Bordeaux (France). If you have any questions ...

Yeh i found that one in Ukraine. Maybe a tough time to be receiving a package from that country right now though? .. I'm really looking for a U.S. retailer, for a faster and cheaper shipment. I found a few but maybe not as good of a price and many are for Pre-Orders only on the GB Everdrive.
Are the Everdrive carts that much better than the alternatives? .. The EMS USB 64 GB carts are more readily available here and less than half the price. I can't tell if they work on Super Game Boy or not though, which is pretty important to me. .. If so I'd probably rather have two of those than one Everdrive.

Well i just ordered one from kitsch-bent.com. I wasn't poised to spend nearly $100, but i know i'd be getting one of these eventually and now seemed good because some of the other retailers seem to be sold out. It does appear to be twice as good as the one that costs half as much.
There is another one called Drag n' Derp that would probably suit my purposes, but it does less than the Everdrive and costs more.
Looking forward to playing some rare and Japanese only games like ZAS, ($$$). Also i guess i have a way to test my own Game Boy programs on real hardware now, (if i somehow come up with any).
