    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pre-orders are open, and it seems the units are all boxed and ready to ship out in coming weeks. Any thoughts on this unit?

    When I read that you can turn on borders to block unsightly overscan, I ordered one immediately :)

    At $200 with shipping it seems a little expensive, but if you compare to the cost of a Hi-Def NES mod, it's not bad.

    I plan to pair it with an NES30 bluetooth controller for some modern retro HD wireless fun!

    Now I just need to buy some NES carts to go with it...

    There are times when not searching is a bad thing, this sort of thing you tend to want to add the info for though, doubly so as not everybody is going to be familiar with some of the specifics of NES clones.

    I assume it wont work with an everdrive otherwise id be very interested.

    edit
    quote from retrousb " Real hardware means no boot or loading times. No stolen software emulators or buggy NOAC chips. A wide range of gamepad, video, and cheat options to play the way you want."

    so actually very interested.

    I'm pretty sure it works with the everdrive. I'm sure I saw a post somewhere saying it does, but can't find it at the moment :(.

    It's an FPGA that essentially mimics the hardware of the NES. No emulation is actually done.
