Color Name:Grey|Verified Purchase
I pre-ordered the Retron 5 back in March of 2014. Upon learning of a mythical neo-retro console that plays the games of 10 consoles from the yesteryear, how could one NOT be excited? Of course I still have the legacy consoles in storage, the idea of breathing new life into my old cartridges seemed way too cool to pass up. After nearly two months of silence and broken promises from the manufacturer Hyperkin regarding the release date ("Retron 5 will be released within the next 30 days" - Marketing Rep at MGC 2014, April 11th 2014), I finally received my Retron 5 from Amazon on June 8th, two days after the official release date.

It took about 30 minutes to update the console and get it in working order. Not only does the instruction booklet leave out the crucial factoid that the power button must be held for 10 seconds for the console to turn on, but at the time of release, the only place to download the most current firmware was from a link on Hyperkin's facebook page--this info wasn't noted on the Retron 5 website, nor Hyperkin's website at all.

I started working my way through some of my favorite NES games to test the system out, lo and behold, the claims were true! The games I grew up playing as a kid suddenly looked sharp and vivid! Wizards and Warriors, Super Mario Bros. 2 and 3, T&C Surf Designs, Rad Racer, Rygar and Mega Man were amongst the 15 or so games I tested on the NES, along with Donkey Kong Country and U.N. Squadron on the SNES. The more I played with the system, the more I fell in love with it... well, actually, I wasn't in love with the cartridge slots. Before receiving the system, I had watched countless Youtube videos of reviewers with the system, and nearly all of them mentioned how unnecessarily tight the cartridge slots can be.

3.0 out of 5 stars What I think of this so far June 1, 2014
By Mike
Color Name:Black
My local retro videogame store had just received a small shipment of the RetroN 5 units this past week. I managed to pick up the last unit on hand after a pre-order was cancelled. Here are my thoughts so far:

Construction: The top part with the cartridge ports is made very cheaply and prone to bending. Removing some cartridges is a rather scary endeavor and I'm afraid one day I'll end up breaking the case removing a cartridge. The worst culprit are Genesis/Megadrive carts, they do not like to fit inside the RetroN at all and require a LOT of downward force and pulling to get them in or out. I do not know how long that port will last by doing this, use Genesis/Megadrive carts at your own risk. Gameboy games go in and out very smoothly and require very little effort to insert or remove. The controller is absolute crap, I cannot stand it. It's awkwardly built and feels cheap; the directional pad is absolutely stupid, why did they make it like that? The console is made somewhat sturdy, but be careful.

Operating System: The Android operating system is not too bad. Its easy to navigate and has some neat options regarding filtering, aspect ratios, and even sound enhancement; most of which we have come to expect from emulators on Windows/Mac/Linux. I am not a fan of having to write firmware requests to an SD card and go through a multi-step process to upgrade/update the system. Not only that, firmware downloads are given a DRM mechanism to be locked to the console that requested it, so no sharing updates with friends or family. The reason for doing that is beyond me, so whatever. The console has problems with sometimes figuring out if an SD card is actually present. Sometimes when remove it, still reads as inserted and vice-versa when I insert it.

3.0 out of 5 stars First Review from someone who PLAYED it. May 29, 2014
Color Name:Black
Well I got my hands on the long awaited Retron 5 today and its , , OK. First off i was pleasantly surprised by the controller's buttons which has switch buttons, it gives a nice click when pushing the buttons but after playing it for a while i switched to the original controller and it was better (of course)

NES:
After figuring out you have to hold the power button in for 10 seconds to get it to power on, I was greeted by its menu. I put in my first game, and it couldn't read it, second game, couldn't read it. Long story short it could only read 1 of 6 of my copies of super Mario/Duck hunt cartridges. All of these cartridges work flawlessly in my original NES system, ( I fired it up just to make sure).
Genesis:
I put in my copy of 6 pak, BAM, it knew what it was!, I was greeted with the selection screen of 6 different games and chose Shinobi, and it played fine. I selected reset from the Hyperkin menu and it reloaded , , , Shinobi (NOT the game selection menu). I tried to take the game out and it it was STUCK in there. I had to REALLY pull hard to get that genesis game out. Finally did and it loaded it, Shinobi. Power cycled the console, Shinobi. I had to go into the Hyperkin gamesave manager and totally delete all files associated with the 6-Pak game. Got the selection screen again! I selected Sonic this time. played it, hit reset and Sonic again. SIGH, looks like it needs a major software update because the only way I can play another game on that 6-Pak is to to totally delete all gamesave files Each and EVERY time.
Snes:
Played every game i stuck in and worked well!
