Do these clones replicate hardware accurately? I remember having a similar clone for NES. So many preinstalled games but repeated with random cheats or mods in them.

they are nice reviews of this console on youtube, it has 4:3 or 16:9 ratios. I have not received it yet to test though. The console supports real cartridges multi-regions and output RCA and HDMI. I don't mind the games on memory, I have order a fake everdrive.

How much is fake megadrive?

I'd be keen to know if it outputs 240p like original console via the RCA.

Kathy Rain! That was a well built game. If I'm not mistaken I think it was by a one man team! Incredible.

Have you had a chance to test yet? All PLAs in order? No recapping necessary?

Lol... really!?

I had some issues with networking an old Oki laser printer. Eventually I realised the printer had a static set from previous user (button presses enabled current configuration settings to be printed out).

I managed to then connect directly to printer and reset it all.

It's been probably close to 5 years since we got HP printer with HP Instant Ink - for 10 bucks a month you can print 300 pages and HP supplies printer cartridges before they run out. Since then we always are close or over 300 pages. (wife is a teacher + 2 school kids)

I just finished Mass Effect trilogy about 2 weeks ago. Great games and love that making certain decision in 1st or 2nd game does have affect on 3rd game and end of game.

Playing Mass Effect Andromeda right now, great story and gameplay.

Purchased about month ago RG350P, just figured out last night that it arrived. (Was thinking it was HP cartridge, as box size is about the same, and usually printer tells you when to replace it )

Will test it tonight with some regular games, left to to charge battery.

Thinking to get New BittBoy as well.

Wonder if anyone here got one??

Bought a Pentium M based HP laptop from eBay France yesterday for old PC games, among other uses :
https://tinyurl.com/y6t3gxe4
review here :
https://www.cnet.com/reviews/hp-pavilion-zt3000-review/
One nice aspect is its WXGA native resolution instead of the more common 1024x768 or 1400x1050 ones. I assume DOS games connoisseurs are aware that most games run at 320x200. 320x200 x 4 = 1280x800, isn't it a nice touch ? Ancient laptops (P ii ,P iii, P iv, Duron's based...) are just too crappy, minus a few exceptions (passive LCD displays, 256 MB of RAM as default options, and similar atrocities) while newer ones bear CPUs with 2 or 4 cores, which can be detrimental to old games accuracy. I would say it's a nice go between despite the relatively fast CPU. Can't wait to see it in action.
