Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great product
Pros: Nine different cartridges you can play on this device, plus it will read USA, Europe, and japan famicom. easy to update firmware plus you can buy the controllers if you don't like the wireless controller it brings.
Cons: Not really a con but the buttons on the wireless controller are some what flimsy, Read the forums on the retron 5 concerning the death grip since theirs a updated version. this does not impede operation. works fine for me.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Retro gaming at it's finest..
Pros: -HDMI video is crystal clear on large TVs
-Booted up and worked great on the first 10 or so games I threw at it. (Mostly NES/SNES)
-Video options are a nice like adding filters.
-It has the ability to save game states with just a push of the button on the controller.
Cons: -The controller's movement stick is a bit wonky at first. The box has the ports to plug in the original controllers.
-The controller seems a bit cheap but it works pretty well.
Other Thoughts: I've heard some negative reviews about updating the unit since you have to use a SD card. The unit has been working straight out of the box so I'm going to update not unless needed in the future.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Good system
Pros: It's nice to play all my old games again. Works well with all my old controllers.
Cons: The wireless controllers had a slight delay at first. Not sure why, but on the next day they worked fine. New batteries were installed from the start. It was a bit tough to get the cartridges in the system, but after a few times they were no problem.
Other Thoughts: Got it with a promo code and it was a great deal.

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Garbage
Pros: none - zero
nice concept i guess? but the unit is the cheapest plastic with cheap construction and just flimsy overall.
Cons: The unit is cheap. the included controllers are cheaper still and hardly worth unwrapping. The interface includes both an s video and av cables so your tv must have them or a converter. and...you must use both in order to use all three systems. the slots for the games are incredibly tight and feel as if they are ruining your precious games. in addition, it just plain doesnt work. best video we could get was a rolling, messy colored scratchy picture. total garbage.
Other Thoughts: IF youre craving playing some old games then either pick up a classic working system or download some emulators and roms on your pc, get a few usb converters so you can use your own controllers and you can pretty much play anything you want and it feels like the classic. way better at least then this product.

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! THE COMPANY DOESN'T EVEN BACK THEIR OWN PRODUCT!!!!
Pros: NONE! NOT WHEN THE SYSTEM DOESN'T WORK AND THE COMPANY WILL NOT BACK THEIR OWN PRODUCT. THIS IS A WASTE OF MONEY!!!
Cons: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!! I have had two of these systems, I took back the first system because it wouldn't recognize the controller. Now the second system is doing the same thing. I called the company with in 30 days of receiving the second system (past the return time with the store which is 14-days for electronics) and they do not stand by their product. I was told if the store would not exchange it, then there is nothing Hyperkin can do. THIS IS THE COMPANY WHO MANUFACTURES THIS MACHINE. I find it absolutely ludicrous that they do not give any kind of warranty on their product for ANY amount of time. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Back to the Future
Pros: Very inexpensive 3rd party console to play NES games. Easy to use. Works Great! Able to use original NES controllers and peripherals.
Cons: At first you think the game just sits in the console loosely and flimsy, but you have to almost force it in to engage. It still works fine.
Other Thoughts: Would recommend to anyone that has trouble using the original system.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Snes/nes console
Pros: This machine plays not only nes but snes games! All of my games were going to waste as I was out looking for working snes original consoles but this solved that problem! It runs rather well, using both of the old controllers that I still have and all!
Cons: The snes games don't sit properly/play properly the way they sit, I have to wedge something to push them slightly forward to get them to work. It's not a big deal just something slightly annoying.
