The grey console I asked amazon to switch to got delivered today. I'm looking forward to checking it out this weekend. Last night I just realized that I have 3 genesis controllers and they are all third party. I'm not sure what happened to my official controller. Have you guys had luck with 3rd party controllers working on the retron?

Dude, try it. It looks BEAUTIFUL on the retron 5.

Holy cow, games look AMAZING when played on this. It will be hard to go back to viewing my retro game collection on anything else. The audio is fantastic as well, especially the ability to enhance the audio on NES/Famicom with simulated stereo.

GameBoy games look superb, eliminating the blur that made a lot of games harder to play. The (mild) downside is that some effects in stone GameBoy games cleverly took advantage of the blur to create neat effects (some Mega Man game intros, part of the intro to Bionic Commando, if I remember correctly) but that is a minor tradeoff for truly superb visuals. Maybe now I can beat the GameBoy Contra games :)

Do I need any specific memory card in order to complete the firmware updates? I actually don't have any random memory cards floating around, only a flash drive.


You'll definitely need an SD memory card. I used a microSD card with SD adapter, but same thing, really. Your flash drive won't work, unfortunately.
The food news is that you don't need a big SD card since the files for updating are small. A cheap 4GB card is more than enough for your needs, if that.

Oh, and another minor thing to mention.  Open the box on the left side, not the right (box front facing you).  I wondered why the cardboard tray was hard to pull out until I realized the right side is narrower at the top due to the box design.  I didn't damage the box, but perfectionists might like to know this anyway.
