I was very excited to find this game system. It was a gift for my husband and he was so surprised when he got it. We are both very happy about this system. We have not had any problems with it. I seems to work great.
This is a really nice unit. The included games are fun, but the real great feature is that you can plug in any Genesis cartridge. With a modern tv, this actually works much better than a real Genesis. We are also able to use our real Sega controllers with this. I have noticed no difference in gameplay or sound from a real Genesis.
Broke after 1 and a half days...5/5/2010
The system was good until it stopped working. It started to reset itself every time it turned on, in the beginning it would start working after about 30 or so power cycles, but after another few hours it wouldn't turn on even after 100 power cycles. I tried the next day and haven't been able to get the intro screen to pop up again after many, many manual power cycles. By itself, it looks as though the Reset button is pressed repeatedly, flickering the screen.
Great to be back!1/29/2010
Plays the genesis games as they were back in the day. Remote is a little smaller, but has the same feel. I have been unable to get my Master System converter to work with the older 8 bit Master System games. Has anybody had any luck with this? My kids have been playing these games more than their Wii and I've been up way too late playing Columns. Genesis games seem to get stuck in the unit, but with some force, they will come out. No stereo sound. Not sure what Firecore games will be available, but there are 3 additional buttons on the control pads that weren't on the Genesis pads (I think).
