I got my Retron 3 today and it already replaced my Genesis and SNES. It's very lightweight and the build quality is definitely not up there with Nintendo or Sega, but it looks decent (the gray one, not the red one) and does what is advertised. It's very convenient to go from playing Genesis to SNES with just a flick of the knob instead of having to plug and unplug av cables, in addition to how much shelf space and power outlet space it saves.

On the NES side, there is composite video and dual mono output (s-video doesn't work on NES). For Genesis and SNES, there is composite video, s-video, and stereo audio output. Composite video on NES is ok, but it's very dark for Genesis and SNES. It's not really a problem since it's better to use s-video for Genesis and SNES anyways. Compared to composite, s-video output is very sharp and bright. Even the standard Genesis systems don't feature s-video output, so this is a very nice feature of the Retron 3. Since the NES side doesn't work with s-video, it is a bit annoying to have to plug and unplug the s-video cable to play NES games.

The Genesis sound is a little inaccurate. I noticed in Sagaia that the sound effects are louder than the music and a bit of the soundtrack is off key. Also, there is a little buzzing noise on NES and Genesis games. I can live with it. At least it doesn't sound totally butchered up like the Atgames Genesis clones. Most of my other games don't sound too different than on a model 1 Genesis. SNES sound is perfect. I don't know how accurate the NES sound is since I never owned one.

The packed-in wireless controllers are only good for NES games. For Genesis, not only are the A/B buttons swapped, but so are the X/Y buttons. Sometimes I forgot and pressed the wrong buttons.

There are some upsides to this unit. It has S-Video for the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo games and they do look better with it. There is also two bundled wireless controllers. Three systems in one, eliminating the need for all those power adapters and cables. It plays a ton of games just as well as any real system would. You can have three games in at once. Keeps thing tidy, if not weird looking.

There is also downsides to the unit. Bottom line, the video quality isn't as good as the originals were. They get close but its not as good. So the fact that you can get S-Video only makes it slightly better. The bundled controllers are just fine if your dead center with your system and not too far away. Get too far away or move from center. Controls will start to lag and often just downright stop working. The controllers quality itself is not bad, the d-pad is much better then it feels. Its responds well. The buttons all work fine as long as you have a good wireless connection with the unit. I thought I would hate these controllers much more then I did. They are limited because of the range but when in range, they do work well. Wired controllers are only slightly better because they don't go very far without extensions but they are fine tuned with the exact proper button layout that one would expect for that system.

I personally had trouble with the Nintendo portion. The connection seems very loose and poor. At first I thought it was the game. But eventually I put in just right to get it to work. But I gently moved the system and the picture began giving me a very weird, old school garbled look to it. I do remember the original Nintendo having issues like that occasionally. But this system, you could tell the big problem was that it was simply too loose.

I've had a hit-and-miss experience with Famiclones and other hardware that emulates old video consoles. My original FC Mobile was wack, the FC Mobile 2 was awesome, the Retrogen is great, the FC Twin was cool, and the GenMobile was absolute trash. Literally, it broke a day after I got it. And then I got the FC16 Go, and now I never play it. The cables got all mixed up and batteries are expensive. But enough of that banter. THIS SYSTEM, the RetroN 3, picks up for me where the FC Twin left off. (I know, the FC Twin was designed by Yobo and the RetroN 3 was designed by Hyperkin, I can read).

The system features the ability to play NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis games on one console. You already know that. One thing you DON'T know is if it's worth buying. Well, that's why I'm here. I purchased this system after I do what I do before I purchase any system, and that is watch as many reviews as I can. But due to poor internet service I ended up buying this thing on a gamble. The games work surprisingly well, there are only a few sound and color issues, and it fits nicely underneath my TV entertainment console! The bad part is the controllers. Throw them away as soon as you get them, unless you don't have any of the original controllers for the original systems.

The turbo on these controllers is slower than me tapping the button as fast as I can. You have to point the controllers directly at the system to get them to work, and they tend to lock up every once in a while, but only for a second. So my suggestion is find some original controllers. That's the biggest bonus of this system!

Now let's talk sound.
