    These are some seriously nice systems, with OLED touchscreen displays and all.

    And it even plays Cave Story!

    Well that's pretty tempting, but the face buttons of the Wiz were always a major turn off for me. I think I will hold out for the new Dingoo and see how that fares.

    Thanks for the heads up, I've been eying these suckers, waiting for a price drop of sorts.

    The buttons on the Wiz are indeed horrible. Especially the right side. It makes pressing more than 1 button at a time a tremendous effort.

    To be honest, it's true, the face buttons weren't great.
    The d-pad was overly sensitive, trying to play games like Mario proved to be difficult because you'd always accidentally crouch down.

    Other than that it's a very nice system, but I'd choose the Caanoo any day with it's larger screen and much better buttons.
