$20 in shipping for me. Not a deal-breaker, but with the advent of the cheap "pandora's box" systems on e-bay, just not sure which way to go. I love the fact that this one has the trackball, there's just enough old arcade games that I loved that need one to be worthwhile (missile command, centipede, crystal castles, etc.).

the buttons and joysticks on the pandora box is very crappy, and some of the amulation is not great. Might as well pair something like this with a Pi3 and get more games and better emulated.

Really wish they still sold the empty single cases. Extremely hard to find a decent premade case at a decent price

These are incredible quality and easy to use. But they are huge and take space to store. So unless you play alot of games and have a ton of space, it most likely ends up stored away in a closet.

Love the trackball, this would be a hilarious addition to my desk at work and just use the trackball and buttons as mouse buttons

Would be great to use this with my PS4 but you need another $70 adapter to make this work. Seems waaaaayy too much for an adapter.

every year around this time it seems like it goes on sale. and every year i sit and wonder "will I ever get around to building an arcade cabinet and use this with it?"

without fail, my answer is no and I pass. one year, one year it'll be a yes ...

I got one during last year's sale for use with my Pi. It really makes all of the arcade games a lot more enjoyable without having to have a full cabinet and the trackball works well for Golden Tee and the like. It's truly built like a tank.

I use it on my coffee table but I sometimes wish I had a waist height box or something to put it on if company is over since it's pain to have to keep swapping seats if people are taking turns.
