So what's the deal currently. Buy or Don't Buy?
I haven't tried any games with saves yet but I think the save wipe issue was resolved with the patch. Other than that, I love mine so far. I admit I didn't feel too great on slapping down $150 for it but the image quality is superb and I love it. Totally worth it.
The only negatives that have been noted here many times are the controller (but you can use your own NES/SNES/Genesis controllers) and the fact that you have to use an actual SD card for updating it. Updating is also a bit of a hassle as the download server is slow and then requires some work on the side to verify it's for your Retron.
A minor negative that some people have had are with repro carts and carts have indie games or translated Japanese games. If you own any game that was made during the time these consoles were out, they all should work.
