Color Name:Black/Red|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Retro Entertainment System, or RES, does a decent job of playing NES games. The only real setback is the cleanliness of the cartridges themselves. Be sure to clean your old games THOROUGHLY with a Q-Tip before using them with the RES. If you insert games with grime and dust on the contacts, it can enter the RES itself and cause problems for other games. (see below)

The main goal of the RES itself is to play your old NES games presumably BETTER than on the original system.
This is true for several reasons:
-The system is brand new with no wear and tear from years of use.
-It loads all games from the top, not the front, eliminating the problem of the game not making contact to the system properly.
-The video-out problem with scan lines appearing on the old system are not present on the RES.
-The system itself is much smaller than the original NES and considerably lighter. It's roughly 5" x 1.5" x 5" at around 0.5 LBS (An NES cartridge is slightly longer than the actual system).

The first game I tried (Super Mario Bros. / Duck Hunt) worked immediately with no problem. However, when I started trying some dustier games, they required some additional cleaning before working.

Like said before, if your games are too dirty, they can dirty up the RES as well. The same Super Mario Bros. / Duck Hunt cartridge I used at first stopped working later on after playing numerous other titles, and required some fidgeting.

But don't be alarmed with games just not starting up, some deep cleaning of the cartridge contacts (even with heavy chemicals, going against Nintendo's wishes, if it is giving serious problems) may be necessary.
Always remember, the original NES had it way worse and it was both the console and the cartridge at fault.

5.0 out of 5 stars Retro NES (black/red) December 13, 2012
By Jackie
Color Name:Black/Red|Verified Purchase
Love this little game system, playing your old NES games on a modern HD TV is a trip! Do treat it gently however, it does seem a bit fragile, I had hoped it would be made of heavier materials. I"m afraid if it were to fall from the shelf to the floor once, it would be broken. The game cartridges fit in it snugly and work without aggravation, you have to tug a bit to get them to release, that is how well they fit into the system. And it's tiny size is great for small spaces. I keep mine stored in it;s original box when not in use, to help keep it clean, and protected from bumps or falls.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not sure April 7, 2011
Color Name:Black/Red|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have enjoyed this system because it plays my boyfriend's vintage games which were just sitting around. That said, I have had a lot of trouble getting the games to work (blank screens... any minor jostling of the system cutting off the game), and also I've had trouble getting the games out (they get STUCK in there). I have been very careful with the games, using compressed air to get out all dust from the games before inserting them in the system. But, I guess I'm not sure if it's the games or the system that is the problem.

2.0 out of 5 stars It is worth $20. January 8, 2013
By LeAnne
Color Name:Black/Red|Verified Purchase
I did like this product but it is not the best if you are looking for a NES system. We bought this for my son for Christmas, within the first hour the power button stopped working. Now you have to somehow hold down the power button for it to work. Picture is clear and it seems to work great except for the power button.

3.0 out of 5 stars Controller cord issues. December 7, 2013
By Nik
Color Name:Black/Red|Verified Purchase
The cables in the controls started to separate after a few uses. But over all acceptable product. You can use the origional nes controls including the zapper gun(for duck hunt) which is a plus though.

The cartridges are rather difficult to remove, but it works great and I love that the display is rectangular for viewing on newer TVs.
