I heard the 2nd batch of consoles are using higher quality pins. If you are still in the warranty phase you could hall Hyperkin and have them RMA it.  I'm waiting on my console to come back hopefully I get it this week.

was your the first batch or the new fixed batch of consoles?


I ordered it from amazon about 3 weeks ago or so, so I hope it's the new batch. The genesis slot is much tighter than the other slots. It's still working fine but I'm scared the genesis slot will end up breaking sooner or later.

I'm still waiting for a good hack that allows you to play roms on a sd card

If you want roms on an SD card, just build your own console...

I got one of the newer batch consoles a month or two ago. I love it because I am able to play the old cartridge games on my big screen and actually have them look clear and good. Also it's easy to use.

 

My experience with emulators on PCs in the past has been spending too much time trying to get them to work right and finding a gamepad that was responsive enough. That was many years ago, so maybe things have gotten better.

 

Legal issues aside I'm pretty happy with the console and I'm glad I bought it.

I'm think I'm going to call up amazon in the morning and ask them to replace it because I bought it in the last 30 days. Thank you for the responses.
