It looks like you can get other versions of these for slightly more... which you just added. Thanks!

Thanks for posting, but stay away from those. Products from that company are trash and not even worth it if they're free.

Buyer Beware

I snagged several models of these and was not impressed.

The Pong one was the one I was most excited about. However, after trying it on 2 of my TV's, the thing did not have any sound. After searching around, apparently this is a fairly common issue. The other one I attempted to use was the Pac-man version. All the screen shots on the box show the arcade version of the games. However, they are in fact the Nintendo versions. Not that they are "bad" but not what was expected. After getting burned twice, I packaged all the versions I got and just brought them back.

Very cool idea but fails in execution IMHO.

Does anyone have experience with hand-held emulators like this one
https://www.walmart.com/ip/dreamG...4/50624073

There are bunch of these on Amazon too, there is one that can run GBA, PS1, SNES, etc on handheld and has good reviews for $60 but those don't have TV-Out, which would be really cool.

AtGames makes famously bad products. Buying any of these will only damage your opinion of these games

Very cool stuff, bitboy looks great, but isn't it super small? Also reviewer said SNES was a bit problematic on that. Pocket go looks great too, but non of these offer TV-Out, right?
I get most of these smaller ones don't offer TV-Out, probably issue with hdmi location. RetroStone 2 offers it, but at that price it's too much for what you are getting, it's 3" awesome.
How is this, have you ever seen it? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07T9ZRPZ4/ This guy is 3" too, but before I spend $70 on this, I think bitboy might be better.

Yep. Lag kills the fun that these might otherwise be.

you are better off getting a gen 8 or newer Flashback console on ebay for $20, it would include over 100 games and make sure it has wired controllers (the IR (infrared) ones suck), one with a HDMI port would be recommended.

You would be better buying a Rasberry Pi a cheap controller and using an emulator at this point.

I picked one up last night. I agree that the quality of these is pretty terrible. The menu is also a nightmare to navigate. However for 2-player warlords alone, I think this has been worth the $5. Purists will be aggravated by the jumpy paddles, but it's good for a quick round of 1v1.

I'm also speaking from a frustration that quality paddles are getting a little pricey, especially for something that I have a strangely hard time keeping in working order.
