I bet this can't be any real good for such a price? Someone who has tried this please comment

Unless it's at a hugely discounted price now...(flirt)
Android 4.2

Does this have the dodgy usb charge port like all the other nvidia tegra 3 tablets had when they came out 3 years ago?


Which was a shame really as the price given the speed and screen quality was very good then.

Bought one years ago and as a emulator it's ok but can't update the android Os on to the latest which kills it for being useful.

it was this price when I bought it and it wasn't much of a bargain then. Which is a shame as it could be Amazing.
Looks like a Gamegear.
Brought two off these for the kids a couple years back for 40 quid each they were OK. Just be aware that they overheat, me and the wife didn't feel comfortable with the kids using them as they got very hot when playing games or when charging.
Any ROMs that can be added to improve the situation .

Looks like a normal tablet with a controller jig that it can slide into.
1gb ram also not perfect but still manageable. I'd imagine any higher end game I would want to play on it may be affected by the OS version and ram size.
Otherwise it seems amazing value for money. Still interested to be honest.

No.
Should okay for 16 bit though.
I wouldn't get this.

For handheld emulation I think the gpd is a must.
Is this the one that's suing Nintendo and trying to stop them selling the switch?

I actually have one of these.. Bought it years ago never even opening it until a month ago..
I set up up as a kids tablet. Uses Android 4.4.2 (i think) and cannot be upgraded beyond this. 16Gb of storage with around 13Gb available for apps, so better than most Chinese imports.
Great screen, with good colours and viewing angles.

As for ROM's, well there are no custom ROMs available that i could find, however apparently it is basically an Nvidia Tegra Note 7 tablet inside, so you can actually just install one of those ROMs.. That means that you can get to at least Android 5.0 (not tried it though).
Charges directly through micro USB on tablet, or through the micro USB on the controller.

Hope that helps someone..

I have one (gathering dust) and thats a fair evaluation actually.
It's good for SNES and earlier, workable for PS1 but poor and anything newer.
I originally bought it (for much less than this) to Remote Play my PS4 but the wifi performance is pretty bad so the experience is laggy.
It'll play some native Android 3D games but not demanding ones.

I don't reckon it's good value these days - you're effectively paying over the odds for a limited and aged controller / tablet combo when there are other options these days like the iPega 9023 (or any other) Bluetooth controller.

If you don't need a tablet / phone clasp, Game have a great Bluetooth controller for £8:

And if you don't already have an Android tablet /phone, they have a decent ATV (with emulators but still won't be great for Dreamcast) / gamepad combo for £20:

If you already have a PS4 gamepad, you can simply attach your phone to it for a few quid:

That's the guys
Not powerful enough for much on it's own now, but fantastic for streaming games from a PC to if you have Steam and an NVidia card via the Moonlight Gamestreaming app from Google Play. I clock up serious hours on it this way.
had mine quite a few years, awesome for retro upto PS1, plus nvidia chipset although old still works very well, shame its stuck at 4.2.2. Android.

Good battery life too. Also good for streaming as mentioned
I bought one a few years ago but never really used it for emulators/gaming much. It would mainly come into its own for gaming whilst travelling/on holiday (more comfortable gaming on PC /TV at home) but the battery drains quickly when gaming or watching video and it gets worryingly hot so it's not much use. I suppose having to stop gaming to charge it after an hour or two could be seen as a good thing though, as we all do tend to overdo it and neglect to take breaks!
