Retron-5

Whilst spotting the low price on the GameGadget just now, I saw that the above device seems to be available (but out of stock).  Nice little device that plays SNES/Megadrive/NES/GBA/GBC etc. carts in the one box.

Don't know if £90 is a good price or not though, but compared to buying one of each of the above machines at car boots and hoping they all work ..

Again, if it's at Replay: Blackpool, I'll be having a look at it in the flesh.  All I saw at Replay: Manchester were posters for it.

YouTube review of a Retron 5.  Not as good as hoped - especially the device not being able to write back saved game data to battery-backup carts.
