These are some really cool handhelds but you have to plug them in to play a while.  I actually upgraded the screen on mine and it is even better now.  :)

For anyone who has a Sega Nomad, have you replaced its LCD screen?  Check this video as there is a new option available now (if you live in Japan or have contacts in Japan).
