    I looked this up. (couple of in-depth videos on youtube)
    Apparently the NES Classic emulation is nothing to write home about, just workable.
    It shines for the color palette and vivid colors. And for the nice 60fps starting menu GUI.
    It has audio imperfections in some games.
    Even if hacked it cannot play every game because it lacks some mappers.

    If that is the case for the SNES Classic too, they're not necessarily suitable for people interested in fidelity.

    Also a pre-modded RGB SNES Jr. from ebay could end up costing less than a SNES Classic after scalper tax..

    I'm more interested than in the nes, but I'll probably pass on this: I can already play all the snes games i want on my tv, pc or handheld.

    Hopefully you can go online this time. And cross-platform virtual consoles with the switch.

    After this I want a N64 Classic/Mini. I want to play my N64 games over HDMI, maybe 1080p...

    Unless $40/free crt tv. I've picked up a couple for free on the side of the road. They work. Most people just give those tvs away, because no one wants them (except for retro gamers and those who still have VHS tapes maybe). Really though, is the fuzziness noticeable 10' from the tv?

    On a 50" HDTV, yes, crawling dots and fuzziness abound, I'd rather RGB mod an Snes or the HDMI mods available, they make Snes games look the way they were meant to. Not all TVs like 240p.

    All original model SNES/SFC's output RGB, no modding required. The mini/jr doesn't, but if you mod it the RGB output will be superior to what you get from the original models.

    I'm not aware of an HDMI option for SNES yet, unless you're talking about clone systems (gag).

    Cheap way out ... get an original SNES, get an RGB SCART cable for SNES, and get a cheapie "RGB to HDMI" box off Amazon. Results will not be top-notch like the Framemeister, but we're talking best bang for the buck. It would still be much better than a composite AV connection (i.e. yellow wire) to an HDTV.

    Wouldn't those make the input lag a lot worse? And as far as clone consoles go, the Cyber Gadget Retro Freak is one of the best ones out there, the Retron3, bleh.

    I wouldn't know. I'm a 'buy once, cry once' type person, so I went straight for the Framemeister. But not before doing some research - you get what you pay for. The Framemeister introduces some lag, but it's in the 20ms range or so. That's 20 thousandths of a second. A good TV adds about the same again (with any system), so total 40ms. Forty thousandths of a second. That's slightly over 1 frame of lag on a 30fps game. 1/25th of a second. I don't think I can perceive this, let alone react faster ... but if someone else finds that unacceptable then they can make other choices.

    Those might be hard to make cheap, if for no other reason than the cost of making a decent controller with an analog stick.
