My only gripe is the d-pad has some flaws in direction movement. For most games this isnt a big deal, but in games like super bomberman, it is a big deal. Super bomberman needs a controller to play on this, the d-pad isn't good enough.
One product idea would be to build in a kickstand so i can play with a controller and not need my own tablet holder.
The brightness control does not go very dim, it has like 4 steps, all of them about the same. But is isnt a big deal... just a little bright on a plane.
The headphone jack on mine is very very tight. Almost hard to get the headphones out, and i have a good grip. Still very nit picky.
SNES games fit snug, SFC games have some play much like using them in a US SNES. Again, doesn't change how it works. I did have the SFC Street fighter ii turbo freeze up on me once. Weird... but it didnt do it again.
Some people who have used it with larger hands say the buttons are too close together. I think it is fine and dont notice.
Start button is in a weird spot to hit when you are in a hurry to pause.
System boots fast and buttons respond quickly... no lag.
In all, this is absolutely one of my favorite retro gaming accessories. Ever. I need to order a retroport so i can play nes games on it.
So when I heard the SupaBoy SFC was coming out and that it improved on the S model by adding an aspect ratio switch I jumped at pre-ordering a unit day one. The unit arrived and everything looked fine. I charged the unit up which took about 3 hours and then it came to start playing games. I inserted my Super GameBoy 2 as it was the closest at hand. Turning the system on I got a black screen with NTSC in the top corner but no game, I'm a big collector and keep my games clean and had just been using the Super GameBoy on my 20+ year old SNES without problems. So to make sure I cleaned the carts again and even checked it on my SNES again where it worked fine. Again putting it on to the SupaBoy the game wouldn't work. I had a look and noticed that a pin in the middle of the connector on the SupaBoy was bent out of position and pushed down into the bottom of the connector meaning that the reason for the game not loading was the bent pin.
Amazon shipped me another unit which turned up very quickly. I then charged the replacement unit checked the cart slot for any bent pins (nothing wrong there) inserted my Super GameBoy 2 and turned the new unit on. All this unit gave me was a blue screen and that was all. No region identification in the top, no audio all it would do is swap the aspect ratio of the blue screen.
I know the SupaBoy SFC will be just as good as the previous models, in fact it's almost identical to the S model, but two faulty units in a row shows that there has been some rush in production. Give Hyperkin a little time to slow production and restore their normal level of QC.
