**Note for Roms on SD's**
If you plan on installing roms on an SD card, make sure it is an 'SD' card and not an SDHC with an adaptor, as not all will work. To give you an idea, a 512 megabyte SD card will hold about 200-250 roms depending on the size. So don't waste your money looking for a 8gig. The SD card must be formatted in FAT mode from your PC. Create a folder on the SD card called "Game". Place all your roms in that folder. Only .BIN format is accepted. So if you have .SMD format, don't just rename it, google "SBWin" to convert your .smd files to .bin. Don't expect everything you put on here to work, as with any emulator, some roms just won't work. But keep looking, there is usually patches to get those roms to work. Enjoy, and hope this helps
As far as the hardware goes, the buttons feel tight and the d-pad feels really good (not too squishy, not too stiff, just right). The housing also feels like a pretty durable plastic. It's shockingly solid from a build quality perspective, which I wasn't expecting given my history with these sorta devices. In addition, unlike some previous models, this includes a rechargeable battery and a USB cable to charge it.
On the games front, this handheld comes packed with 40 Sega/Capcom games and 40 throwaway plug-and-play style junk games. However, this isn't its selling point. The selling point is the SD slot on top, which allows you to download games online and play them. It's like a Nomad with a backlit screen and a smaller barrier to entry in terms of hardware and software.
If you're on a tight budget and want a lot of bang for your gaming buck, this handheld's exactly what you're looking for.
The unit feels of good quality and not 'tinker-toy' like. The d-pad is reasonably responsive but not ideal for the Street Fighter games(pulling off fire-balls can be a bit frustrating but not impossible).
It's nice to have Capcom licensed games on this Sega unit(it would've been even better if a few Konami games could have been included). The 40 generic games included a few that I actually enjoyed playing(adding value to this portable).
You can hook it up to the TV but you'll need a 3.5mm video cable which isn't included. When hooked up, the picture on the TV screen is nice and clear. The included charger is a USB type so you'll either need to charge it on your laptop or you'll need a USB adapter if you want to charge it using an AC outlet.
An finally you can download games to an SD card(make sure you format it correctly) and play it on this unit. The main drawback is that there is no save feature whatsoever. This is a glaring omission and makes it a pain to play certain games all the way to the end. Overall though this is a great portable with tons of classic gaming fun to be had.
