2.0 out of 5 stars Buy the Official One Instead, January 31, 2010
This review is from: N64 Expansion Pack (Video Game)
This product is unreliable third-party hardware. I suggest you buy the official Nintendo Expansion Pak that will NOT ruin your N64 like the one on this page is said to do. If you value the life of your console and games, use the official Pak and not the generic hardware advertised on this page. Most people won't notice by looking at the picture, but the official Nintendo Pak has a circle pattern in the red top portion unlike the parallel slits in this image. If you aren't familiar with the official Pak, it is very easy to see the image and think it's the official thing. Make sure you either purchase one on Ebay where you can see the pictures of the actual item you're purchasing. Or read the Amazon Seller's item description very carefully before buying to make sure they explicitly claim you are buying the official Nintendo brand Pak.

I post this only because this page is misleading, making you think you are purchasing the official Nintendo Expansion Pak, which you are not.

Nice Try Dude but the link you provided and claimed it was the official n64 expansion pak isn't official at all, first off, it is made by red lion interactive, and the 2 phootos are misleading, it shows the official version but what do you get? you get the same as this...A CHEAP KNOCKOFF 3RD PARTY OFF BRAND AFTERMARKET VERSION!!! And check the product features, it says
"Not made by Nintendo" So buy This One Instead: INNOVATIONS 7-38012-11121-5 N64¿ EXPANSION PACK
So, This One and Neither The one you said it is official Aren't Official At All, Neither of them work.

Wow. You're right. The product page I linked to used to not say "by Red Lion Interective" or "Not made by Nintendo." It used to say "by Nintendo." It must have recently changed. Well now it seems there's no place to be 100% sure you're buying the official Pak on Amazon. Especially since the one you linked to is also a 3rd Party variant. I recommend checking Ebay since you can see the actual pictures from each individual seller.

But, the one i posted works exactly like the official even though it may be 3rd party, it dosen't fry your system. it works just like the official and it feels like the official and it comes in different colors (top part of it) and that is more recommended.
