    I got the money to get a dingoo and after looking at them, they look like they could be pretty good.
    The question is whether i get a
    A380 - This even out yet, if so is the extra 100mhz processor worth it? Or any other good new things (not sure if there is any)
    A330 - Doesn't seem like there is a big improvement over the.......
    A320 - So is the A330 actually better in a significant way.

    Feel rejected 3 hours no reply xD, but I guess I'm used to other areas of the forum.

    From what ive seen the dingoo is perfectly fine for emus, cheaper than a psp considerablly in aus, ill check out that site thanks

    Edit: not too mention that psp is a pain to hack for emus, you need certain batterys sometimes, custom firmware which only works on older models etc or in general
    time consuming to break.

    Someone's PSP knowledge is clearly stuck in the past.

    The PSP is a piece of piss to hack and all models are hackable. The role of the pandora battery has diminished to just unbricking. If you want a PSP cheap than get one used from Cragslist or similair.

    get the a320 or wait till the russian one using dingux comes out
    a320 is way superior for dingux and native emu
    a330 is has better movie player

    PSP emulation is refined and works really well. I would suggest it as a retro device over the Dingoo which really has lost steam. As for videos, the PSP is fine. Just convert it properly and you shouldn't have a problem.

    I feel like i need a two day rest to decide, PSP will be harder to get my hands on i guess for cheap unless somebody knows somewhere, Dingoo seems like a cool device in a way oh well probally PSP now, and i stared off with N64 OoT vs. 3DS OoT in another thread.

    the movie player is slightly better but movies still work well on the a320
    the screen is bigger on the a330 and there is less blur on genesis roms on native
    but a320s native has the gbc emu which is perfect for it and it has all the dingux and native apps updated first

    Alan is right dude, PSP is better then dingoo, all you need to do anyays is update to 6.39 when you get it ( when battery is full) Then you download pro update 6.39 pro b 8 and you install it like a regular update and thats it Lol, I got a psp go also, It's really good, Better than 3000 in my opinion Screen is smaller but better, control stick doesn't get stuck. I suggest getting a psp instead of dingoo dude.

    Ok I have decided on a Dingoo A320 if I can get my hands on one.
    The PSP might run smoother but, as far as I have seen the Dingoo has no trouble except with Snes.
    The Dingoo is slightly cheaper and has a certain attraction about it since it's not a
    big corporate product.

    get a PSP, you will be kicking your self later on for not doing it
    not to mention besides homebrew you got the whole PSP library and PS1 library you can play

    Not to take advantage of this thread, but I have a Dingoo A320 for sale in the Trading Forum if you're interested. Although, shipping overseas might be a pain. (For you, and me.) (Plus you might be able to grab one off Deal Extreme, but I thought I'd inform you if you're interested.)
