    Pros: It works fine for me, GBA emulation is excellent. The games contained internally work fine. The controller is very percise for a cheap model.
    The selection of games provided is a great mix, the graphics on my bedroom CRT TV are very good.
    Easy to operate, simply plug in and play. I had no problem getting the GBA games to play.
    Compact and cheap.

    Cons: Some poor sound on some games but for the most part fine.
    Only one controller, one would like to have an option of another one so that you can play another player.

    Other: Get it, it is the best CHEAP console available.

    Pros: Excelent performance to play old arcade games,like final fight,cadilac dinosaurs,the punisher, neo geo games are good. Good GBA emulator,you can play gba in full screen be cart or rom,can play old systems like nes os sms from microsd card using gba emulators Pocketnes and DrSms. --------------------------------------------------- Excelente perfomance para rodar jogos antigos como final fight,cadilac dinosaurs,the punisher,os jogos de neo geo vão bem tb. Bom emulador de GBA,pode jogar em tela cheia seja pela fita ou por uma rom de gba pelo microsd,tb pode jogar consoles antigos como nes e sms,usando emuladores de GBA pocketnes e DrSms.

    Cons: Street fighter II: wolrd warrior, is running more slow than normal, kof 2002 and snk vs capcom is strange,kof 2k2 is high frame skip and snk vs capcom you need enter movements fast on joystick to play. Joystick are not usb! Left analog from joystick not work,this control is not dualshock have not any vibration. Can't play arcade games from microsd card! Miss more than one console foot! A composite color on console come with red and withe inverted. ------------------------------------------------------ Street fighter II,roda mais lento que o normal,kof 2002 e snk vs capcom rodam de forma estranha,kof 2002 se percebe os frames sendo pulados,snk vs capcom o jogo roda normal mas precisa apertar rapido o joystick para o personagem responder. Joystick não é usb! O analogico esquerdo não funciona,o controle não é dualshock nem ao menos tem algum tipo de vibração. Não permite rodar rom de arcade pelo cartão microsd. Falta mais de um pezinho de borracha do console. A saida de audio e video veio invertida o vermelho com o branco.

    Other: For this price this is great console,joystick is good[for chinese console] better than i expect,after scene hack this console to load arcade rom from microsd will be best. --------------------------------------- Pelo preço é um otimo console,o joystick é bom[para um console chines] é melhor que eu esperava,depois de hackearem esse console para jogar as roms de arcade pela microsd será melhor.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: - Small and very modern look - Good selection of games - Emulation is great: very good visuals and sound even it has composite AV Output - Loading times are fast - It reads GBA games and these games are well displayed - Some games are even for 4 players

    Cons: - I don't like the PS Dual Shock. It would be better other form pad or a Joystick - It's not a real USB plug, and no more joysticks are available - It's not possible to read freely other games than GBA, and no more games or cartridges are available - Even the menu is fast, no options are available, even it the video playback - No HDMI or VGA output. This machine supports 720p...

    Other: It's the machine I thought? ... well, no, I thought it was a free emulation machine... but actually it's a very good console, small and with a very good price. It's only 53.50$/39 euros! (price of 22/02/2011) If you want to have a small and cheap arcade machine... buy it.

    Pros: - Jugar a juegos arcade de mi infancia.
    - Muy fácil de utilizar.
    - Ligero y muy portable.
    - Incluye muchos juegos y muy buenos.
    - Reproduce vídeo.
    ----------
    - Play arcade games of my childhood.
    - Very easy to use.
    - Lightweight and very portable.
    - Includes lots of games and very good.
    - Plays multiple video formats

    Cons: - Mandos propietarios ¡¡y sólo trae 1!!!
    - No se puede conectar al PC para ver la memoria interna.
    - Baja calidad de los plásticos.
    - Sólo trae salida de vídeo RCA.
    - Emulador de GBA va algo acelerado.
    ----------
    - Controls owners and brings only 1!
    - Can not connect to PC to view the internal memory.
    - Low quality plastics.
    - Just bring RCA video output.
    - GBA Emulator is somewhat accelerated.

    Other: Si no te importa que los no poder usar tus mandos USB ni poder cambiar los juegos es una compra recomendada. Estoy muy contento con la compra.
    Si consiguieran instalarle un linux para ampliar el número de emuladores, o vendieran algún mando extra y más juegos sería todavía mejor ;)
    ----------
    If you do not mind that your controllers can not use USB or power to change the games is a recommended buy. I am very happy with the purchase.
    If able to install a Linux to expand the number of emulators, or sell some extra control and more games would be even better;)

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Comes with 60 built in neogeo-cps1-pgm and 2 gameboy advance games.Emulation is almost perfect and fullscreen.Avi video files play awesome.Very easy to use,compact and has very low power consumption. Can also play NES,Gameboy,Gameboy Color,Master System,Game Gear,Zx Spectrum roms ONLY through gb advance emulation(you need a gbadvance rom build tool)

    Cons: The built in games list could be even better. Doesnt recognise roms other than gba at the moment.Doesnt recognise subtitles on avi videos(srt,sub). Doesnt support generic pc usb joypads. Came with chinese type ac plug.

    Other: Its ideal for all emulator fans.It works perfect as a backup videogame machine and will kill your free time.I want to believe that its upgreadable,but even if its not,its very very cool for its price!

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It plays the built-in games, albeit with sub-standard video, audio, and emulation quality. It plays blocky AVI movie clips. Maybe it'll become more useful one day, if the Dingoo community manage to hack into the box, and develop a Custom OS, and Custom ROM emulators. But then again, pigs might fly, this is probably wishful thinking ... chances are it will never happen.

    Cons: The advertising is an absolute CON. Forget about playing your own games off a Micro-SD card. This product does not recognise MAME or SFC (SNES) ROMs. The only ROMs it displayed in the menu were NES ROMs, but it incorrectly lists these as being GBA ROMs, and when I try to run them, the box freezes up ... I need to turn it off & on to regain control. The box is light as a feather, it feels like a cheap toy. The video quality of the built-in games is fuzzy and blurred. I played it using headphones, the sound is punctuated with crackling noises. I played the built-in AVI clip, being the Avatar movie trailer. It looks OK, although it's blocky ... but it looks a damn sight better than the games do. It's a shame I didn't buy this box to watch blocky AVI movie clips, as that's about the best thing it's capable of. The English translation in the manual is an abomination. It's so poor, that on the rear side of the product box, they call this the "CAMEBOX". I guess my $53.50 came and went.

    Other: Just when you think the quality of Chinese goods is improving, something like the Gamebox comes along and bites you. Thankfully, my pain was eased by a FANTASTIC Microscope (SKU 35625) with Video Out, which I also bought. I highly recommend it. If you're smart, you'll spend the money you set aside for the Gamebox on this microscope instead … and you'll still have change to spare. It's an awesome product, your kids will love it. The contrast between the "value for money" I've received from this microscope, and the "waste of money" on the Gamebox, couldn't be greater.

    posted by LS650 on 10:22:33 G2T 10/02/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It comes with the 60 games for CPS, Neo Geo, etc., all stored internally on its flash memory. The emulation quality seems reasonably good to me. I also loaded about 20 different GBA ROMs on a micro-SD card. They all ran well, including 3D games like VRally. I would say the quality of GBA emulation is as good or better than the Dingoo's native GBA emulator. Both "game saves" and save states seemed to work okay.

    Cons: The composite output seems a bit muddy and fuzzy, with cross-hatching on diagonal lines. It's perfectly viewable for playing games, but could be better. The plastic casing for the console and the controller seems a bit thin and cheap; if you press hard on seams with your thumb, you can feel the plastic flex slightly. I think if you gave one to a small child who likes to bash things around, it wouldn't last that long.

    Other: If you enjoy playing GBA games and want to try playing them on a larger screen, this machine might be for you. However, unless someone figures out a way to run other game formats from the micro-SD card, I can't recommend paying the $50+ for one.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Easy setup, plug and play.

    Cons: Does only support own GBA roms, the other formats are only possible to run through proprietary game packs. THIS MACHINE IS NOT THE DREAM EMULATOR YOU THOUGHT. The controller ports are not USB but a custom serial interface. Forget using the Rumblepads you have lying around the house.

    Other: This is not a gateway to emulator heaven on your TV but a proprietary game platform just as any other. Expect shelling out extra money for controllers and game packs.
