    What's the difference? Aside from looking like a tiny PSP the 330 seems to be almost the same system.

    I believe this whole dingo thing is just really a waste of money, i mean it would be more logical getting a DSTWO instead (considering you have a DS in the first place)... but still you can pick up a used Lite and buy the DSTWO and it will weigh out to be the same.

    a330 has twice the ram (iirc)
    and it can use an overpriced wireless gamepad ($25 on shoptemp)

    More RAM, I dont know about the CPU, new design, and can be turned into an actual game console plugged to the TV (with the game controllers)
    I don't know if it justifies its price, but the idea of using it as a game console sounds interesting...
    Playing SNES/megadrive/all other emulated systems on the TV = win
    I'm annoyed that the dingoo manufacturer didn't drop the price of the good old A320...

    If you're interested in buying one, please, considering using my referral link.
    http://shoptemp.com/products/Dingoo-A330-H...99.html?ref=900

    I'll get a fair bit of store credit for it.

    I have to admit I'm somewhat tempted by the A330, but I already got the GP2X Wiz a while back, and was disappointed by it...

    Actually, I just checked the A330 against the A320.

    *snip
    # CPU Ingenic JZ4732 @ 336MHz, underclocked from 400MHz (MIPS architecture).
    # RAM 32MB at 133MHz.

    *snip
    # CPU speed 400 MHz.
    # RAM 64MB at 133MHz.

    It appears that the A320 has the same 400mhz processor, but it has been underclocked, whilst the A330 has not, but the A330 indeed has more RAM.
    I don't know if you can over/underclock the CPU.

    Dammit Costello!

    This is why i didn't like the whole refferal idea!
    People like this posting and asking for buyers to use their refferal links so they get free stuff!

    And fuck that's advertising, which is against the rules!

    I normally wouldn't just bluntly advertise like that, but the whole topic started off advertising the A330 on Shoptemp anyway...

    Well fuck me for just politely asking. [​IMG]
    It's not like I was even going to influence anyone into buying it, the topic starter did that.

    Well if that's what you think...well I'm sorry if I did break any rules or just piss anyone off.
    But that's up to the mods to decide, this is ShopTemp, GBAtemp's partner site after all...

    I don't think the info on the shoptemp description (about the CPU) is very accurate [​IMG]
    and as for the affiliate link, better keep that in your sig indeed.
    zeromac, no need to get so angry, you can just report the post to moderators [​IMG]
