It looks really nice and the controllers are good.But did Ghouls & Ghosts slow down that badly?I have added Atari 2600/Megadrive/PC Engine and Gameboy Advance - all seem to work fine.But...........since I hacked it I'm feeling more annoyed that I paid £70 for it.I could've got a raspberry pi setup with a wireless controller for less.

I think these are an absolute bargain. Converting into 1991 dollars, this $80 system in 2018 is only about $44 in 1991 dollars... AND it comes stock with 21 games and two controllers... AND a nice interface... AND you can load tons of other games on it... pretty great.My only issue with it is it would be great to have it connect to a CRT through RGB.I'm in the far minority here, but... in 2008 when the signal changed to HD broadcast, I stopped watching TV. I really haven't watched for 10 years and I haven't had any TV service since. HD TV is good. I just really liked the dark contrast tubes. LCD always seemed cheap and fake to me... except for computers. There is no motion-trail for sprites. It isn't alive like analog. For older games, the motion-trail added so much depth to the graphics... so much so that they were even FEATURED in the NES box art, especially for the black box NES games.Eventually, possibly all technology will return to analog when we learn to control it. Analogue has a sense of "undefined" and there is magic/power/beauty in it. When we understand analogue, we'll see just how limited and basic digital is. Compare a 35mm camera film. The amount of megapixels it takes to match the quality is incredible.
