I'd be tempted by the retron 5 but the price is waaaaaaay too steep imho.

Oh are you serious? Damn

I was thinking the naff controller would be negated by the controller ports, but the unit itself appeared to be of good quality in photos.

Will give a youtube video a gawk.

Only had the chance to get it out of the box this evening, the build quality is much better then it looks.

The controller definitely is an oddity however you don't have to use it and in fact you can use any controller for any game, so you can play megadrive games with a snes pad and vice versa.

What's nice to see is that there has been a second firmware update already since launch. Keep in mind when watching youtube videos that most were testing the older firmware.

Not sure about the cartridge removal issues I had heard people commenting that it can be a little tight. I will have the chance to judge that better tomorrow once I actually have some of my carts to hand.

One good thing that quite pleased me to see was that the cartridge slots have good quality flaps to keep out dust.

I know that this thing has people curious, so if anyone has any specific questions let know cause I will be putting it through its paces this weekend and happy to provide some feedback.

Collected a NES (NTSC from USofA) this morning, PAL unit just wasn't cutting it with the everdrive, tempted to RGB mod it now as well

Price of the console + shipping still works out cheaper then buying a PAL one on Adverts..

Ha, that wouldn't surprise me. I got mine for pretty cheap too. Did you get stung with customs?

Yep, Ebay automatically adds import charges now for US purchases

Came with a wrestling game as well, can't think of anything worse to play..

That's only if the seller opts into that service isn't it? I thought there were still some sellers doing things the old fashioned way? That global shipping program sounds like a disaster, the seller ships to an agency & the agency then strip all the sellers packaging away & use their own (bare minimum) packaging, presumably to save weight. Luke Morse has a vid about it, & things have been damaged several times on him as a result of the agencies minimal packing.

Not sure really how it works, but it looks to be very well packaged. Guess I'll find out later what its like on the inside !!

You know, I had something crude and filthy to say about that entire statement, but I've decided to be a better Mod and say nothing.
Better I point out the potential and let you work it out for yourself.
