I've been loving the Retro Freak since I purchased it about six months ago. I'm only experiencing one problem with it: Games will freeze on me during play quite often and I'm not sure why. Maybe it's the mini SD card, maybe it's a faulty power cord, or something but this is very irritating and I'm having trouble pinpointing the problem. Anyone reading this that has suggestions about what I can do or try to fix this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
The price TOTALLY justifies itself. Considering the NES and now new SNES classic editions run at about $100 CAD, this console can not only run the same games but you can ADD more games!!!!!
It's a no brainer really! I've gotten a hold of 30 different ROMS for NES, SNES, SEGA, AND GAMEBOY, all 30 of them run smooth!
The fact that I can save ALL THE GAMES to a micro SD card, also amazed me.
Don't even bother with NES/SNES classic edition. This thing can trump those 2 consoles!
By the way, shpping to Canada was a breeze! :D
Positive: The console is great for playing all those old games. The controller feeles good an the menu system is comprehensive.
Negative: I can't udate the firmware! I have the feeling, I was sold an console from an outdated stock pile, since my board revision is still v1.0 vs. the current v1.2
Negative: Support from Cyber Gadget is not existent. I tried to e-Mail them because of my FW issue but never got a response.
It needs an added ethernet connection to update the firmware automatically (maybe they can put one in the next model)... and they should implement achievements by utilizing the system established at retroachievements.org.
Also, the leeway in the cartridge slots gives a bit too much room. Cartridges should fit tight behind and in front. Now if you push forward or backward on the cassette it feels as if the connector may snap off below because there is too much room available.
Other than that, it should be able to play NES and Game Gear games right out of the box... and the controller adaptor should be built in. All the connectors that you must purchase separately are quite a drag.
I love the fact that I can finally back up all my cartridge games! The emulation is just fine, though turning on scanlines makes my monitor flicker. However, This may have more to do with the display I'm using rather than the Retro Freak. If you have Master System games, you'll need a powerbase converter. Also, NES games need a converter, as the machine only accepts FC (60 pin) carts.
Finally, the difference between the premium and the regular set is that the premium set comes with a USB adapter which allows you to use the original controllers. Since this also works with a PC, I'd say it's well worth it.
