    ARRRRRGGGHHH! I can't decide...my clone everdrive recently died on me so I need a SNES replacement.

    I could go with SD2SNES or Super Everdrive V2 with DSP.

    I'm thinking though I may as well go cheaper and just grab a Rasp Pi with SNES to USB adapters (maybe Genesis and N64 too to make it a complete retro box).

    I need some recommendations. I wasn't really happy with the Super Everdrive and the way it loads games plus I'm not sure I trust the quality of the product now, so the Super Everdrive is probably a no at this point but due to the price, its a slight maybe.

    I have many other solutions for emulation though and this is why I'm torn. Why bother with emulation on yet ANOTHER device?

    I really enjoy SNES and I love the idea of SD2SNES but the $200 price tag is insane.

    Tempers - let me know your thoughts for those of you that have a Raspberry Pi and/or SNES flash carts!

    I forgot
    AFAIK the Pi can run all SNES games (FX chip included) at full speed with filters, so you could probably just go for the Pi with a SNES controller no problem.

    I use Retropie and I'm really happy with it.

    Can't you fix the everdrive or return it for warranty or something? Unless the chip is fried.
    Anyway, I'd go with Pi if you want to buy something new. Pi can play anything. It's a powerful mini PC.
    Your imagination is the limit. Make a retro arcade console, emulate anything or everything you want from it.
