5 out of 5 eggsGreat 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.

5 out of 5 eggsRetro 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.
