Have to say not to impressed unless there is a problem with the device and that is my guess.
It can be slow to respond and sometimes freezes that i need to reboot. I never had these problems with the older model and they both have all the same apps.
Ill likely return it for another to see if there is any improvement.
Any suggestions in the meantime? Is this common
why upgrade? the original also has 4k output.

I really want to get Mame going on mine but I don't have a controller, I assume it's not usable without the controller? Anyone know a cheap source for a controller?

I'm thinking of buying 1 of these to pair with my Shield for the ultimate Mame experience, someone please talk me out of it or come up with a cheaper alternative.

Oops, the link would be handy https://www.ebay.ie/itm/8Bitdo-NES30...kAAOSw1NFaN4hE

Nice. I would think something similar could be found cheaper though.
But that is nice. Chunky and handsome

At a guess, something like that might be found closer to the €50. But that is nothing more than a guess.


EDITED

After a very quick look
https://www.geekbuying.com/item/8Bit...ay-384044.html


Which leads me to believe it could be even cheaper again. I am guessing somewhere around €30 - €40 (Only because i know Geekbuying are quite expensive - usually).


DOUBLE EDITED

Seller will sell one for $45 https://www.alibaba.com/product-deta...678897903.html

It was on Zapals for $42.50 but has since risen. I am guessing it will come back down.

Also worth noting is many of these sites have coupons sitewide and for signing up, so you could possibly take another €5-€10 off the marked price

Mine arrived in the past week or two, added 500GB to the storage + also moved my plex catalog on to it over the weekend on a separate external drive.
Some minor difficulty getting it to see the data on the external drive until I read somewhere you needed to move everything in to the nvidia folder it created on the external drive. Working perfectly now, really glad I keep an eye on this thread and bought one.

I'm thinking of buying a second 1 if they come back down in price, they really are a brilliant piece of kit.

So first impressions. Really good, initial setup was nice using mobile and without a mobile I would have been stuck as the default keyboard language is set to Russian, need to figure how to get it to match the language.

Had a look at GEForce, will probably sign up at some point.

Intend to put on
Es file manager
Aptoide
RetroX, from the video a few pages back that looks great, hat no idea I could sub to old games. That swung it for me to be honest

Set language to US(ENGLISH) and that'll fix the keyboard
