you are quite right! you can get these mobile and pc, the main winner for this is its a purpose made gaming device, instead of relying on touchscreen or an external controller it has everything built in and for a device from china its really well made. the only downside is no Bluetooth (grrrr)

Have you tried out Shenmue?



​not yet I'm afraid mate. I have about 60 games on the device now and the ones I have played for over an hour are- sonic adventure 2 dc resident evil cv dc resident evil 3 dc and smash bros for the n64 all have worked perfectly aside from some fmv jumping in some games... other then that it's mostly going to be used for nes , snes , megadrive and ps1 all have these have been faultless with the exception of worms on the gba which wouldn't start

voted cold only as that sure isn't top of the range



The op isn't saying this is THE top of the range but simply saying "A" top of the range box. And with the Amlogic S812 chip, he'd be right.

It's interesting because it's the only TV Box i've seen so far with the ability to install an internal hard drive, but, spec-wise, compared to what else is out there, is it really worth paying £40-£50 quid over the top just to add a hard drive?

Also assuming you've actually got a hard drive to add of course ..

2gb ram not 32 like your OP says.



​32GB rom =hard drive /internal storage
