I got myself a Sega Megadrive mini (or Sega Genesis Mini depending on where you live)...

It's an impressive package with a really quality lineup of games, most of the ones you would want on there. I witnessed no emulation slowdowns at all. Good controllers too although it's the three button ones, which is not too great for Streetfighter 2.

There always has to be a "aw man they had to be cheapskates" moment though... they supply a usb cable for the power, but not the actual connector to be able to put it in a wall socket. So you need to use one from your phone or something. Probably everyone will have at least one lying around nowadays.

Space Harrier 2 sucks though. Because I'm really bad at it.

How's the Trinitron? I was considering the same (21"), deffered because of space considerations and when I wanted to buy it some weeks later, it was gone.

I got the KV-M2151u ,nice bit more modern black TV , picture is great with both Amiga and ps1/ps2 games.
Only downside is that it only has 1 scart socket instead of 2 like my larger TV, just have to buy a scartsplitter.


Very happy with it so far, great little TV , saved a lot of space on my desk

Picked up a BenQ BL702A monitor that works with the Amiga for £10 off fb marketplace.

Also a nice neon Amiga sign that lights up blue for my gaming area.
