A great video review. Covered all the bases. Wonder how some of the newer batteries would work or if they would drain just as fast?

It is a cool handheld but the PSP with the Sega Genesis classics and EA Replay cover most of the games I enjoyed on the Genesis. The best handheld version of Ms. Pac-Man for me is still the Atari Lynx version.

Yeah, I would still like one.   :113:

I know with the Lynx the lithium batteries last a very long time.  My guess would be that those batteries would last longer on the Nomad.  :)

Cool. Thanks for the info! Been wanting to play the Lynx more but Dollar General brand batteries will only go so far. I'm cheap!  :24: Really need to get a power supply.

Time to wake up this thread.  I don't know how many of you are aware of a new mod available for the Atari Lynx that replaces the original screen with a modern LCD that really makes the games shine.  The mod will be available for the Nomad in the near future, something that will be great as the screen on the Nomad does have issues.  If the replacement is anything like the Lynx screen, it will give new life the the Nomad.  In the meantime, here is the latest episode from The Gaming Historian covering the Nomad...

The prices must have gone up since I got mine!  I paid $60 for mine.

Another exciting thread that's been revived!  I had a chance to buy one locally for $50 a few years ago, but I was kind of stupid and decided that my AtGames rip-off was good enough.

That was a fantastic price!  I have one that I got modded with a modern screen.  Looks much better.  :)

I would love one, maybe one day.

Great to see the battery fix.
