For starters, the FC Twin is far more compact than either system. It's only slightly wider than an SNES cartridge and about 2/3rds as deep as an SNES. it will easily fit on an already crowded shelf next to your DVD player and other entertainment systems.
Secondly, the system connects to your television with modern RCA cables instead of the old coaxle connector. This means you can put the sound through your stereo system and also be confident that this will connect to any modern television set (including flat panel screens).
Finally, the NES component is a top loading cartridge system utilizing a card slot reader, so it plays classic Nintendo cartridges with far fewer problems than the original system. This means less time spent blowing on your old cartridges, hoping they'll work this time around.
The FC Twin has been ideal for my needs in terms of cost efficiency (cheaper than buying either original system), space efficiency (smaller than either system), and reliability (more reliable than an NES), but there are some minor imperfections that buyers should be warned about:
1. The FC Twin uses SNES controller sockets, which means that any SNES controller device can be used with the FC Twin, but classic NES controller devices (like the Zapper) cannot.
2. According to Wikipedia, the following Nintendo games will not work with this system: Bandit Kings of Ancient China, Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, Dragon Warrior II, L'Empereur, and Rad Racer II.

All of my games have worked fine so far. My only complaint, and I knew what I was getting into, is the controllers being crappy and awkwardly light. It's no problem to get on Ebay or use Amazon to find some original SNES controllers, which work fine with the FC Twin.
FC Twin controller (not the cord) = 63 grams / 2.20 ounces
Original SNES controller (not the cord) = 73 grams / 2.55 ounces
So the Original SNES Controller is a bit heavier coming in at .35 ounces heftier, or 10 grams. But honestly, the FC Twin Controllers I received are great. I can't easily tell the difference in the weight, and the buttons and D-Pad are much tighter and have a better tactile feel since they are new as opposed to the older and much used SNES Controller. All in all, especially when it comes to gameplay, the FC Twin controller feels better due to tighter buttons with a better (not loose) tactile feel.
I've got 2 Original SNES Controllers that work great with the FC Twin and 2 of the new FC Twin Controllers. I've opted to put the Original controllers in a drawer and use the FC Twin Controller since it feels better.
I decided to get the FC Twin to get back some of the 8-bit and 16-bit games from my youth. I've picked up 5 different NES carts and 7 SNES Carts, and all of them play perfectly. Granted, several of the carts had dirty edge connector pins and didn't want to power-up, but a few swipes with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol had them running like new. As other reviewers have said, you need to keep those cart pins clean for reliable play. It's always been that way, even on the original systems.Read more ›
